Whole Wheat Flatbread Recipe (No Yeast Required)

I love flatbread. Pita, naan, wraps, literally anything in the flatbread category. But for some reason, I’d never tried making my own. So I decided to tweak my olive oil bread recipe into a flatbread recipe and I figured while I was changing it up, I should test out a whole wheat version. In just a few minutes, I had an easy whole wheat flatbread recipe, no yeast required!

I bought some white whole wheat flour at Trader Joes but if you don’t have a TJs’s, check out the King Arthur Flour. They have it at most grocery stores or you can order it online. If you don’t want to buy another bag of flour, you can do a blend of half whole wheat and half all purpose flour.

Total time
This makes 6 small flatbreads.
Serves: 8
  • ⅔ cup warm water
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 2 cups white whole wheat flour
  • Pinch of dried herbs (rosemary, basil, oregano, etc.)- Optional
  1. Combine the warm water and salt and let the salt dissolve.
  2. Stir in the olive oil.
  3. Add in the whole wheat flour and work it with your hands until the moisture is distributed.
  4. Knead it with your hands for 3-4 minutes.
  5. Cut it into 8 small pieces and roll each of the pieces out into a very thin sheet.
  6. Heat in a pan over medium heat for 2-3 minutes per side. You won't need any oil and as long as you use a non stick pan, you shouldn't have any trouble flipping them.
  7. Let cool and then eat up!
  8. Keep them in an airtight container until you're using them.

easy 5 ingredient flatbread

I made half plain whole wheat flatbreadย and half with a sprinkle of an Italian seasoning blend. It was a nice way to mix it up a bit! These would be lovely topped with hummus or dipped into homemade tzatziki sauce. You could even top it with pizza sauce and cheese for a quick and easy flatbread pizza.ย If you make the recipe into 8 small flatbreads (which is what I did) each flatbread will have about 160 calories, 4g of fiber and 4g of protein.

This 4 ingredient whole wheat flat bread recipe is SO easy! It's vegan, yeast-free and is full of protein and fiber! Try this flat bread recipe asap!

What’s your favorite flatbread topping?


  1. I was *just* looking for a flat bread recipe that didn’t contain yeast. It’s like you read my mind! These look fantastic and super simple. I will definitely have to give them a try.

  2. I’ve actually been wanting to make flatbread. I like it a lot at restaurants so I feel like I would like having it at home…I guess I could buy it but this looks so simple.

  3. Yum…love that it is simple to follow and no yeast needed. It’s no fail!

  4. This is a great idea! I’ve never made my own flatbread and like you — can’t get enough of them. Time to step up my game!

  5. This reminds me of rotis that we make at home so much. I will be adding in the dried herbs as your recipe calls for and see if I can pair it with a creamy kofta tonight. Cheers!

  6. Making GF flatbreads is a project that’s been percolating for awhile…might be time to try this with a GF flour blend, in time for summer flatbread recipes ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. I love making homemade tortillas, so I have no doubt I would love these!! I have trouble not wanting to eat the tortilla right out of the pan- they are so good fresh!

  8. You are the queen of easy recipes! This flatbread looks delicious and I love that it’s whole grain. I’m definitely making this with my dal next time! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  9. I can only imagine the possibilities of toppings for this! Maybe some mashed avocado, shredded chicken and BBQ sauce?? YUM!

  10. I never realized how easy making flat bread was. The possibilities are endless…

  11. Wow, how have I not made home-made flatbread yet?! This looks fabulous. I’d like to slather one with tzatziki sauce and fill it with delicious veggies and gyro meat ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. perfection for my carb-a-holic self ๐Ÿ™‚ And so easy

  13. Your flatbread looks a lot like Indian flatbread called bacri (sp?). Except instead of herbs, we add cumin seeds! YUM!

  14. YES – I couldn’t agree more. I love all things flatbread.

  15. YUM! I love that these don’t use any yeast. Flatbread is seriously the best!

  16. YUM!! These flat breads look delicious! And so versatile! What a great recipe. Sadly, I’m gluten intolerant… but if I wasn’t I’d NEED these in my life! <3
