Whole Grain Pitas

Submitted by: COWBOYMAMA


Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    1 c. water, 115 degrees
    1 tbsp. honey
    .25 oz dry active yeast
    1 tbsp. butter, softened
    1 tbsp. unsweetened applesauce
    1/2 c. old fashioned oats
    1 1/2 tbsp. sunflower seeds
    1/4 c. flax meal
    1 1/2 tsp. salt
    2 c. whole wheat flour
    1/2 tbsp. olive oil
    additional flour

Directions

In a large bowl, dissolve honey in warm water. Stir in yeast. Allow to proof until creamy and foamy. Meanwhile, combine oats and sunflower seeds in a smaller food processor. Process until finely chopped. Add flax meal and salt. When yeast is done proofing, add oatmeal mixture, butter and applesauce. Add flour, 1 cup at a time until dough comes together and scrapes sides of bowl. Let mixer run 2 minutes to knead the bread. Coat glass or metal bowl with olive oil and place dough ball into bowl, turning once to coat. Cover with plastic wrap and allow to rise in warm place for 1 hour, or until doubled in size.

Turn dough onto lightly floured surface. Gently roll into a 12" rope. Cut rope into 8 pieces. Roll each piece into a smooth ball. With a rolling pin and additional flour, roll each ball into a 6" circle. Set aside on lightly floured countertop. Cover with a damp towel. Let rise about 30 minutes, until slightly puffy.

Preheat oven to 500 degrees. Place 2 or 3 pitas on a wire cooling rack. Place rack directly on oven rack. Bake 4-5 minutes and flip, baking another 3 minutes, until puffed and top begins to brown. Remove from oven and immediately place in a sealed brown paper bag and cover with a damp towel until soft. Once softened, you may cut in half or leave whole. Can be store in a plastic bag in fridge for several days or frozen for 1-2 months.

Makes 8 whole pitas.
