Super Easy Flatbread

We're big fans of Pita Bread and use it all the time for sandwiches or just to dip hummus. It's also ideal for Baby Led Weaning as it can be cut into long strips that are easy for baby to hold and work themselves. Much like Naan, Flatbread is also a great vehicle for carrying additional flavour. They are also perfect to keep frozen and then just popped into the toaster when needed.

What I particularly love about these Flatbreads is that there are only four ingredients and the cooking process is super easy. Aside from burning them, there really is no way you could mess up these delicious breads!

Christian's Super Easy Flatbread

350g self-raising flour, plus extra for dusting
a pinch of sea salt
1 tsp baking powder
350g Glenisk natural yoghurt

Put the self-raising flour, baking powder, sea salt and Glenisk natural yoghurt in a mixing bowl and mix together with a spoon. Then, using clean hands, gently work everything together.

Next, dust your work surface with flour and roll out your dough. For one to two minutes knead the dough. Don't excessively knead the dough though - this isn't a traditional bread dough. Move the dough to a floured dusted bowl and cover. Set it aside for 30min.

Re-dust your work surface and a rolling pin with flour. Take your dough and divide it in half and then further divide each half into 6 equal-sized pieces. These should work out to roughly the size of a ping pong ball. Using your hands, flatten the dough and use the rolling pin to roll each piece into 12cm rounds, roughly 2mm to 3mm thick. Cut 6 lines into the centre of each round.

Heat your griddle pan to a high heat and cook each round for 1 to 2 minutes on each side. Ideally you want to achieve bar-marking as the rounds puff up.

If you want to add a little extra flavour like I mentioned above, just create your own herb butter and brush the flatbreads as soon as they come off the griddle. You can add ingredients directly into the mix but refrain from adding anything wet and don't go overboard - a little goes a long way. Feel free to throw in some herbs or spices to your mix though.
