Oatmeal Flatbread

doesn't look like a typical flatbread but last summer, i was playing around with oat flour and i ended up making this "flatbread" that satiated my craving for bread :/ so although the texture isn't fluffy like regular bread, you can easily make this in five minutes.

Recipe: Oatmeal Flatbread
By: Hannah Claudia

1/3 cup of oats, pulsed in a food processor until they are flour-like
1 clove of garlic, minced/grated
your desired spices (i used 1 tsp smoked paprika, 1 tsp anise seeds)
1-2 tablespoons of olive oil
3-5 tablespoons of water


1. Combine the first three ingredients in the food processor
2. Add the olive oil
3. Gradually add the water, tablespoon by tablespoon, until the mixture forms a ball (should be sticky/tacky)
4. Shape dough into flatbread shapes (if it's too sticky, refrigerate for about 10 minutes).
(Tip: put the dough in between some clear wrap so it's easier to flatten out and doesn't stick to anything)
5. In a preheated pan with a teensy bit of oil, cook the flatbread until golden brown on both sides

i served it with guac and some corn. random? yeah, but it tasted good. i guess i was inspired by Tex-Mex flavors; I didn't have any salsa though.

feel free to play around with flavors and make it sweet; use cinnamon in the dough and top with bananas/peanut butter/jelly/nutella/cookie butter or make them into mini circles and top with some cream cheese/smoked salmon/cucumber slices/fresh herbs for a really pretty appetizer.

last year, i remember making it even thinner and making taco shells for homemade fish tacos which tasted really good.

xoxo, Hannah
