Easy Simple Flatbreads ( No yeast )

I attempted this recipe yesterday and I have to say it went rather well , the kitchen on the other hand looked like a battleground it was hard to say where flour and countertop started or finished to be honest. But all the best creative geniuses were never tidy ...


150 g Plain flour ( this about will make 4 flatbreads by my reckoning , just double up to make more keeping everything the same but perhaps adding a little more coconut milk  )
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon of very lazy garlic ( you could use garlic powder)
1 teaspoon smoked salt
4 level tablepoons of non fat Greek yogurt
2 tablespoons of coconut milk/almond milk /any milk

The smell of freshly baking bread has to be one of the best smells in the world, I mean who doesn't love the smell of freshly baked bread gently wafting in the kitchen . And NO YEAST !

It is amazing what you can do with minimal ingredients !

I forgot how easy it to to make your own flat breads and jazzing up your meals , I have been buying my own flatbread and I have to bow down to having a lazy culinary phase but now summer is here ~ no more !


  1. First add the flour , garlic powder, baking powder and salt together in a bowl. Make a well in the centre next add the yogurt, oil and milk.
  2. Next mix together well , cover will cling film and leave at room temperature for 20 - 30 minutes .
  3. Once it has rested divide into 2 . Then into 2 again . With this mixture I ended up with 4 dough balls. It was my first go!
  4. flour your work surface , I used my hands to flatten the balls then used the rolling pin on the 2mm setting to roll into a round shape. It does;t have to be perfect after all rustic is the latest buzz word isn't it ?
  1. Lightly grease a frying pan , 2 minutes on each side , brush with oil oil ( before you do flip over ) 
  2. You can brush with all again before you serve. These can be made a little in advance and kept warm wrapped up in foil.

But wait I forgot to add the yogurt mint sauce ... basically it's a few tea spoons of mint sauce mixed with some left over non fat Greek yogurt !! 


  1. It all looks delicious. I'd never made them without yeast until I went to the Waitrose cookery school, and I was amazed, they come out just as light as yeasted ones, so I always do them that way now

    1. It's certainly the way to go ! I loved Waitrose cookery school .
