Homemade Soft Flatbread

This is a recipe on how to make a naan-like flatbread that will stay soft for days. The secret to the softness is using a bit of mashed banana. Don't worry, you won't taste the banana! There are only a handful of ingredients and you can make it in a pan. No yeast, no fuss. Enjoy!

  5. If the dough sticks to the sides of a bowl, sprinkle on a bit more flour and knead with your hands until it's no longer sticky. Cover with plastic wrap or a plate. Allow to rest for 30 minutes.
  6. Remove covering and knead once more. Divide into eight equal balls.

  8. Sprinkle a work surface and rolling pin with flour.
  9. Roll dough into flatbreads. You can make them as thick or thin as you want. Leaving them thicker will make them doughier and puffier when you cook them.

  11. Add a bit of oil to a pan on medium high heat and throw on a piece of rolled dough.
  12. Cook for 10 to 20 seconds and flip to cook the other side. You will be able to tell when they're done when you see the brown spots and bread no longer looks doughy.

Yes, they sure can. Just toss in the toaster/microwave/oven as usual frozen breads :) Enjoy!

Hi there! I like to wrap them individually in cheap plastic wrap from the 99c store and then put a stack of those into a tough freezer bag. They reheat fabulously in the microwave, toaster, and oven!

That was a really great post thanks. I may try this with the new gluten free flour that you can sub one for one with regular flour as I've been looking for something to use with fajitas. Great instructions!

This recipe sounds so good. I wonder if I could use sour cream instead of banana as my husband can't eat bananas for medical reasons.

Try a little less than a quarter cup of applesauce!! I am sure sour cream would work too. Testing is super fun!
