Spelt Flour Flatbread

It’s DIY time! 🙂  This edition felt ambitious as I’ve never really considered myself a ‘bread maker’ of any kind.

These Spelt Flour Flatbread however, have a simple ingredient list and are totally not intimidating. Anyone can make this recipe!


My goal was to make a healthier alternative to the wheat wraps or tortillas you find in the bread aisle.

I always have a stash of spelt flour and I hoped it would also work for some homemade wraps. Add that to the binding power of the Greek yogurt and the earthy flavours of cumin and coriander? Come on!

The result is a puffy, hearty flavoured flatbread that blew the store bought version right out of the water. These versatile wraps actually tasted like a wrap. Awesome!

It was very simple process to throw together.

Literally, just mix everything together and roll it into a ball.


Then pop the dough into the fridge for an hour.

After chilling in the fridge, break the dough into 6 small balls and roll them out into thin circles.

And yes, that is my water bottle subbing for a rolling pin. I seem to have misplaced my rolling pin? How that happens, I have no idea but it seems as though I have actually lost a rolling pin!

Once your balls have all been rolled out, heat up a small pan with a little olive oil and a little butter. Using a bit a both keep the butter from burning.

Once the pan is all warmed up start cooking the flatbread, one at a time.

Cook them for about 1 1/2 -2 minutes per side.

Transfer them to a side plate, layering with a paper towel between them as they come out of the pan.

I serve these immediately and usually enjoy them wrapped up with some garlic & lime red cabbage slaw with salsa and shredded cheese.

They would also be super good with a big bowl of hummus for dipping.

    I thought the serving of 6 flatbreads meant 6 flatbreads, I got 2 big enough to make single-serving flatbread pizzas and since it needs to rest for an hour, I didn’t have time to make a second batch for the 4 people I was serving. I also needed over twice the flour it calls for because it is a very sticky dough. Just disappointed in the results since I was entertaining.

    Delish!! 5 * — I doubled this recipe
    And used half of it to make the flatbreads as a recipe directed, the rest I used to make a couple of pizza crusts in A Preheated cast-iron skillet it came out great, the best ever. I’ve been experimenting a lot lately with the spelt flour and this recipe is a keeper it turned out to be the best. No longer looking For a spelt pizza recipe or flat bread! Thanks so much for sharing this

  3. I am inspired to make these spelt flatbreads soon. My daughter can tolerate spelt quite well and I love the nutty taste of this flour. Many thanks for sharing, Sharon!

    I love to make my rotis with different kinds of flour like rice, millet, chickpea, soya bean , whole wheat, corn flour etc. But I have never tried spelt. Now after seeing the rotis (flatbreads) you have made, you got me interested in spelt too that I cannot wait to try it out soon. They look so delicious! Thanks for sharing.

    thank you so much for the simple, quick and tasty spelt flatbread recipe.
    It was the perfect complement for my chickpea and carrot soupy stew!

  6. These look terrific. Do you think they could be baked? Perhaps on parchment paper? I’m just looking for a way to do them all at once instead of one at a time in the pan.

    These flatbreads are a sensational discovery for me! Really versatile as a meal accompaniment, with hommous, as a wrap, with pate, etc. Really delicious.

    1. Thanks so much, Irene! I’m glad you’ve found so many uses for the flatbread! I’ve even covered some in cheese, popped under the broiler, and enjoyed a mini pizza. 😉 Have a great week!

  8. I made these today, and the dough was REALLY sticky at first, so i needed to add more and more flour. But maybe i got the ‘cups’ wrong (we don’t use that in Holland). How much is 1 cup of flour (in grams) and how much is 1 cup of yoghurt in this recipe?

  9. Great Recipe!!!I am going to try it on the weekend. I am just learning how to bake. I am a bread lover. A specialty flatbread for any occasion. Awesome

  10. 5 stars
    Thank you for a lovely simple recipe. However, could you kindly give us a spelt flat bread recipe with yeast? Thanks.

  11. Ginger-Mary! Thanks so much for stopping by and I’m so glad you liked this recipe 🙂 All the best to you as well in the new year!

    These were great. I just used ordinary yoghurt. Forgot about the oil in the pan but it worked fine as it was non stick anyway. Its quite a sticky dough so you will need to keep flouring it as you roll it out but it’s nice and soft so really quick to roll out. Others I have made with water have been quite tough.

  13. I made that same recipe from Yotam O.! It was delicious! (that reminds me, I forgot to post t on my blog. lol)
    I love that you use all organic ingredients 🙂 I’ve recently made flatbreads/handmade soft tortillas using a mix of spelt, rye and chickpea flour, and it worked wonderfully! Yum!

    1. I’m so inspired by Yotam! Recipes, photography … all so exquisitely done.

      Hmmm … chickpea flour, you say? I haven’t experimented with that one yet! On my list now for sure. It’s so funny how I get excited about a new flour to try 🙂

      For me, I choose to use my hard earned dollars to treat myself to the best food available to me!

  14. Can water be used in place of the greek yogurt? Would like to avoid animal products if possible and this ingredient list is otherwise simple and basic… new to baking, not so much to cooking!


    1. Hmmm … I really don’t know, I only tried it with the greek yogurt. Perhaps coconut milk yogurt might work if your looking for a vegan option?

    2. Look for Tys Conscious kitchen for a vegan alternative. I believe on the website it’s called alkaline flatbread. I’ve tried it and it’s delicious!

          1. Hi Tarey! I haven’t made these vegan but if you know of a good yogurt substitute you could totally try. I have only found coconut based vegan yogurts and they definitely don’t work in this recipe with the sweetness. Good luck!

    3. Hi there I would use coconut yoghurt. There are some that aren’t as coconutty in flavour and obviously not the sweetened ones 😊

  15. I’m pinning these! I love spelt tortillas but have never made them. I’m going to have to search for this spelt flour and make my own. These flat breads would be perfect for school lunches. My daughter loves taking “special” foods and making her friends with plain sandwiches jealous. lol 😀

    1. Ha! Your daughter is so cute:) I found my spelt flour in the organic section at the grocery store, but it’s probably found in the bulk store, also.
