Whole Grain & Seed Flatbread 3 Ways
Updated: 15 hours ago
Whole grain flat bread with the addition of chia and flax seed and the toasted texture of wheat is hearty and filling. This home baker's recipe is quick to make for a a dinner party appetizer or a brunch. It is simple enough for a beginner to make and delightful enough to make over and over again. We love them for a grab-and go breakfast or a just-add-topping pizza crust. You add the topping and just put it in the toaster oven. They are just a wonderfully delicious whole grain simple meal.
Homemade Whole Grain and Seed Flatbread
2 1/2 cups Panhandle Whole Wheat flour
2 Tbsp. Specialty Grains Chia Seeds
2 Tbsp Specialty Grains Flax Seeds
1 tsp. Salt
2 tsp. Baking Powder
1/4 cup Olive Oil
1 cup Water
In a large bowl, combine the Panhandle Whole Wheat flour, Specialty Grains white chia seeds, Specialty Grains brown flax seeds, salt, and baking powder.
In a small saucepan, bring the water to a boil. Add to the boiling water and avocado oil to the flour mixture and stir until well combined, about two minutes.
Allow dough to rest about 5 minutes. Divide into 10 equal portions of dough. Heat a 12-inch griddle or skillet to medium high heat.
Roll the dough out to a 4 inch by 5-inch oval (you will need very little flour). Cook on the stove-top 3 minutes on each side until browned and cooked through. Serve warm. Yield: 10 flat breads.
3 Serving Options
Blueberry Creme with Balsamic Drizzle
Top the flatbread with a few Tablespoons of sweetened Greek yogurt, fresh blueberries and a drizzle of balsamic vinegar.
Avocado and Power-Greens
Top the flatbread with your favorite low-fat ranch or vegan dressing, power-greens like baby kale, sliced mini bell peppers and avocado. Season with smoked paprika and fajita seasoning.
Roasted Garlic, Feta, Minced Olives and Peppadew*
Top with chunks of roasted garlic, minced olives, feta, fresh herbs, and sliced peppadew or roasted bell peppers.
*Peppadew is the trademarked brand name of sweet piquanté peppers grown in the Limpopo province of South Africa and available in most deli's at your local grocery store. If you can't find them, then roasted red bell peppers will work, though they won't give the kick of flavor you'd get with a peppadew.
