Garlic and Herb Flatbread

First off; Hello new readers. I'm glad you could come and join this crazy little family we have here. Join in the conversation and have some fun.

Secondly, its the 1st of February! How did this happen, and where did January go?!

Finally that low calorie flat bread recipe I promised you is here.



I'm rubbish at making bread, completely rubbish. The damn things never rise properly and are always too doughy.
To say I was nervous about trying this recipe would be an understatement. I can't bake bread normally never mind about on a griddle pan. Bread in 6 minutes, no way I was telling myself, its impossible.

Well I was wrong, as usual. They are SO easy to make, even a non-bread baker like me can do it.
Not only that my version is low calorie, super delicious and massive! Normally you get a really small piece of bread for you calories, but these are HUGE.

Printable Recipe

Makes - 8
Calories per serving (1 flatbread) - 112

Ingredients:
2 cups of all purpose flour
5g sweetener
2tsp salt
2 1/4 tsp active dry yeast
1/2 cup warm water
3 tbsp skimmed milk
1 egg
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp Italian seasoning.

Method:

  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer combine half of the flour, the yeast, salt and sweetener.
  2. Lightly whisk the egg and then add the egg, milk and warm water to the bowl and combine using the dough hook attachment.
  3. Add the rest of the flour to the mixer, until the dough starts to form a ball and pull away from the sides of the bowl.
  4. Place the dough in an oiled bowl, cover with a dish towel and let it rise for 30 minutes.
  5. Place the dough onto a floured surface and knead in the garlic powder and Italian seasoning.
  6. Divide into 8 pieces, roll them into balls and then let them rest on a baking tray lightly covered for another 30 minutes to allow them to rise further.
  7. Heat a griddle pan and then roll out each dough ball into a flattened circle/oval. Poke holes in the dough with a fork.
  8. Lightly spray each flatbread with cooking spray, and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side.
