Chewy, homemade flatbread makes any meal seem special. Use in place of pitas, bread, or crackers!


Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    1 cup whole wheat flour, plus 1 tablespoon for dusting the cutting board
    1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
    3/4 cup fat-free Greek yogurt

Tips

No need for special mixing equipment. Your hands will work just fine. Slowly incorporate the yogurt. If you herbs are full of moisture you may only need 1/2 cup yogurt. The dough should just pull together and release from your hands.


Directions

Combine the flour, baking powder, salt, and parsley in a medium mixing bowl. Add 1/4 cup yogurt at a time, mixing until the dough is smooth.

Wrap the dough in plastic and let rest for 30 minutes to an hour.

Divide the dough into six equal portions.

Heat a large nonstick skillet or a griddle over medium-high heat.

Using a rolling pin, flatten each dough ball until it's about 6 inches in diameter. (Dust the dough and your work surface with flour as needed.)

Transfer the dough to the griddle one piece at a time, then cook for one to two minutes per side, flipping to the second side when you start to see the dough rise. Repeat with the remaining dough balls.

Serve immediately or let cool, wrap in two layers of plastic and freeze for up to three months.

Makes 6 flatbreads.
Serving Size: 1 flatbread per person using 2 ounces of dough.

    Thank you!! I love flatbread because it's so versatile, but I don't love the cost. Hence I have been experimenting with homemade flatbread, with varied results; this is by far the very best I've made! I can't wait to make hummus pizza on it! - 8/14/12

    Excellent! I added 2 Tbs of flax seeds, and 4 tbs minced onion. Will be making this often, has even less calories than thin buns. Would alsp make a good crust for a personal pizza! - 8/31/12

    Since I like onion bread, I will saute up some thinly sliced onions and add that to the mix. The honey-yogurt-cinnamon combo sounds like it will make a terrific sweet bread. Now... what about peanut butter? sun-dried tomato? tahini? currants? dried fruit? slivered almonds? olives? I'm SO inspired! - 8/30/12

    I love to make this!! it freezes great! I made my third double batch today and just realized I should be letting the dough rest before cooking. I love it even more! It handles much better and has a chewier texture that I prefer. I will try toasting it and eating with cottage cheese for lunch. - 10/10/12

    What could I use as a substitute for the Greek yogurt? - 7/11/13

    Reply from CHEF_MEG (7/19/13)
    Regular non-fat yogurt or reduced fat sour cream can be used as subs.

    OMG! This looks like an excellent substitute for Naan. I can't eat Indian without it, but the TJ's brand I buy is 220cals apiece. Chef, you've done it again :) :) - 9/7/12

    We make this without adding baking soda, yogurt or parsley. Just whole wheat flour, salt, water. This is a very common Indian flat bread called "Roti" and we eat it with vegetables/curries and/or lentils. One can add the yogurt and parsley to add flavors but I would avoid using baking soda. - 5/6/13

    I am never, ever buying pita bread or flat bread again. And I'll use this for personal sized pizzas, too. Super easy to make. The picture is a bit deceiving and looks like it was made with white flour. I used wheat flour and they LOOK wheat, not white. - 10/21/12

    I made the recipe exactly as written...so why is my bread colored brown because of the whole wheat and yet pictured white in the photo? Also....the taste was not at all appealing. - 9/10/12

    Absolutely loved this! Grocery store was out of flour tortillas so I whipped this up in no time as an alternative. Very easy and even my one picky kid declared he liked it. No better compliment! Substituted cilantro for the parsley, delish! - 9/8/12

    question.... I have arthritis in my hands and I was wondering if this could possibly be made in an automatic bread machine? Just the mixing .... not the baking. Would love to hear if anyone tried that and how well it worked. The recipe sounds wonderful and I would love to try it!

    Sure that would work well or you could even knead it in a food processor with just a couple of pulses.

    We make these at cooking classes, but they use whole wheat flour and water and thats it. Then they fry it. I like the yogurt with cinnamon. Sound delicious. thanks - 8/30/12

    Texture was too dense; it also seemed like if I cooked it enough for it to not be doughy inside, it was really dried out. Won't be making this again. - 1/15/13

    Yum. I had a Buddhist Monk from Tibet who was visiting his family. He taught me to make these just minus the baking powder. The yogurt gave them a whole different flavor. He said they were used to scoop everything up. No cutlery required. Thank you for sharing. - 3/19/21

    This sounds great. My nutritionist insists that every carb I eat have fiber in 6/1 ratio. (Every 24 g. carbs have at least 4 g. fiber.) This just fits. And I love naan and pita. Can't wait to try. I'll rate it then, I promise. - 10/12/17
