This home baker’s recipe is quick for a dinner party appetizer or brunch. It is simple enough for a beginner and delightful to make repeatedly. We love them for a grab-and-go breakfast or a just-add-topping pizza crust. You add the topping and just put it in the toaster oven. They are just a wonderfully delicious, whole-grain, simple meal.

Homemade Whole Grain and Seed Flatbread

2 1/2 cups Panhandle Whole Wheat flour
2 Tbsp. Specialty Grains Chia Seeds
2 Tbsp Specialty Grains Flax Seeds
1 tsp. Salt
2 tsp. Baking Powder
1/4 cup Olive Oil
1 cup Water


  • Combine the Panhandle Whole Wheat flour, Specialty Grains white chia seeds, Specialty Grains brown flax seeds, salt, and baking powder in a large bowl.
  • In a small saucepan, bring the water to a boil. Add boiling water and avocado oil to the flour mixture and stir until well combined, about two minutes.
  • Allow dough to rest for about 5 minutes. Divide into ten equal portions of dough. Heat a 12-inch griddle or skillet to medium-high heat.
  • Roll the dough to a 4-inch by 5-inch oval (you will need very little flour). Cook on the stovetop for 3 minutes on each side until browned and cooked through. Serve warm—yield: 10 flatbreads.

3 Serving Options

Blueberry Creme with Balsamic Drizzle

Top the flatbread with a few Tablespoons of sweetened Greek yogurt, fresh blueberries, and a drizzle of balsamic vinegar.

Avocado and Power-Greens

Top the flatbread with your favorite low-fat ranch or vegan dressing, power greens like baby kale, sliced mini bell peppers, and avocado. Season with smoked paprika and fajita seasoning.

Roasted Garlic, Feta, Minced Olives and Peppadew*

Top with chunks of roasted garlic, minced olives, feta, fresh herbs, and sliced Peppadew or roasted bell peppers.

*Peppadew is the trademarked brand name of sweet piquanté peppers grown in the Limpopo province of South Africa and available in most delis at your local grocery store. If you can’t find them, roasted red bell peppers will work, though they won’t give the kick of flavor you’d get with a peppadew.
