Mouthwatering Nutrient Dense Flatbread Recipe (Perfect for Pitas and Chapati too!)

nutrient dense flatbread from Fox Hill Kitchens Bread Mix

Whether you are a lover of Greek or Indian cuisine, a dish just doesn’t feel complete without flatbread. This nutrient dense flatbread recipe makes perfect pitas and chapati for any gluten-free, keto-friendly, and low carb meal. 

Measure Your Ingredients for Nutrient Dense Flatbread

To make nutrient dense flatbread you will need:

Gluten Free All Purpose Bread Mix Measured Ingredients

Follow Instructions for All Purpose Bread Mix & Let Rest

When preparing the dough for nutrient dense flatbread, add all the measured ingredients, except for the boiling water and sesame seeds, and mix well. 

Add boiling water and mix well until the dough is smooth and even. The mix can be done by hand, in a stand mixer, or a food processor. When in doubt, mix longer it will not damage the dough.

At this point, the dough can rest in a covered bowl for four hours (for zero sugars) or if mixed in the afternoon it can rest covered (in cloth) overnight. 

Measure Out & Press The Dough

Once your dough has risen it’s time to shape it into flatbread!

Measure out a ¼ cup of (packed) dough and roll into a ball. 

Put wax paper on each side of your tortilla press and brush lightly with your favorite oil, we recommend olive or avocado oil. Press down to create a perfect disc with even thickness. 

Repeat with the rest of the dough or for as many you would like to make!

Note: No tortilla press, no problem! Here’s a great video that works around that problem: “No Tortilla Press? No Problem!”

Cook & Bake

Heat lightly greased skillet on medium-low (any higher and it will burn before done).

Place nutrient dense flatbread dough onto the skillet and cook for 2 minutes per side. You will know it’s done when each side is golden brown. 

Directly place in the oven for 2 minutes to finishes off the flatbread. If rolled correctly it should puff while in the oven, otherwise, it will make a nice wrap.

Note: Your flatbread can be made into a variety of sizes, shapes, and thicknesses. Add a few extra minutes to your cooking time if you make them thicker.

For Air Fryer: Use an air fryer/toaster oven at 400℉. It will puff open quickly. Keep an eye on it to prevent burning.

Enjoy Your Nutrient Dense Flatbread!
