Easy Oat Flatbread

Easy has been the name of the game lately.


Don’t worry, I have something more complex coming.

After a month of holiday party baking and creating, I’m appreciating the simple more and more.  I was particularly glad when Heather brought back her Meatless Monday link up with the simplest of ingredients: oats.  Simple doesn’t have to mean typical though!

Oat Flatbread

Please ignore my janky nails.

My oats became flatbread!  It’s so easy you’ll be amazed – just grind oats into flour, add egg and water, and cook it like a pancake.  You could even use a flax egg to make this vegan!

It comes together quickly, and you can customize it to your heart’s content with spices.  I added cumin, oregano, pepper, and cayenne.

There are a million topping options.  I made one big pancake and used it as a base for kale chips, roasted sunchokes, salmon, and hummus.

Finished with a drizzle of fig-balsamic reduction and I was a happy girl!

It would also be good as a sweeter bread.  Maybe a nice vehicle for some #yolkporn?

Linking this marvelousness up to two of my favorites: Heather and Katie.



Easy Oat Flatbread

Easy Oat Flatbread

  • 1/4 C oats
  • 2 T egg whites (or flax egg)
  • 2 T water
  • Optional: flavor with your favorite spices or herbs


In a small blender, grind oats into a flour.

Combine oat flour, egg, and water in a small bowl and stir to combine.  Add spices, if using.  Cook in a small pan as you would a pancake.


I’m already excited about Friday’s #strangebutgood link up.  Yesterday was a good food prep day. :)

Do you use oats in any non-standard ways?

What was marvelous about your weekend?

    I really <3 flatbread. I've never even tried to make my own. As always, thanks for the vegan suggestion. You take care of me :-)

  2. Christine @ Love, Life, Surf

    Oh interesting! I’ve never made my own flatbread and not sure why I didn’t cross my mind that you could. This looks so simple.

  3. Emily

    This looks awesome and so easy!! Would it work with Almond or Coconut flour?

  4. lucie@swissfitchick

    I LOVE oat flatbread! I don’t even grind the oats – I use them just like that. Last time, I included coconut flour and it was marvelous with some sweet nutbutter.

  5. Arman @ thebigmansworld

    Mmm I make something pretty similar based off Khushboo’s recipe and recently been faceplanting my cinnamon raisin version daily…purely because my freezer can’t handle an entire loaf of the real deal. oops.

  6. Angela @ Happy Fit Mama

    How easy! I love it and will be making.

  7. Lee

    I sometimes eat raw oats, which I guess is non-standard, right?

  8. Amanda @runtothefinish

    pinned it with high hopes that some day eggs and I will be friends again!

  9. Linz @ Itz Linz

  13. Kaila @healthyhelperblog!

    Love the simplicity of this! I am sure it’s a great base for all sorts of fun toppings too!

  14. Alex @ therunwithin

    simple is sometimes the best, i need to start making my own bread. I feel like I miss that bread texture lately

  15. Sarena (The Non-Dairy Queen)

    I eat oats everyday! You know I love my oatmeal chickpea flatbread. I can’t get enough of it. This one sounds so good and so easy! YUM! I had a pretty amazing weekend. It was so needed and I feel charged for the week! I hope you have a great week! xoxo

  16. Heather (Where's the Beach)

    Sounds perfect – and easy! I use oats for oat flour quite often. I mean, they’re cheap! This kind of reminds me of socca.

  17. Kierston

    I eat this on the regular. It’s one of my fave recipes. So simple, and delish. I’ll often add flax seeds too. There’s so much you can do with this base! Love it.

  18. Shashi @ http://runninsrilankan.com

    That is one heck of a scrumptious load on your oat flatbread! I have used Khushboo’s version – must try yours with egg soon! Happy Monday Laura!

  19. Sam @ Better With Sprinkles

    Flatbreads have been on my to-make list for ages but I haven’t gotten around to it yet…I’m thinking that it needs to happen soon!

  20. Jody - Fit at 56

    You know this is PERFECT for me!!! I will add cinnamon and/or pumpkin pie spice & eat plain! :) Course I may put some nut butter on there too! :)


  21. Laura @ Mommy Run Fast

    You read my mine! I am all about simple these days- that looks perfect!!

  22. Nichol

    I cannot wait to make this! So much cheaper then the one’s I buy in the store, and healthier!

  23. Kristina


  24. Megan (The Lyons' Share)

    So easy … even I can make it :). And I will! And if YOU’RE excited for Friday’s #strangebutgood, I know it must be a really good one. Can’t wait!

  25. She Rocks Fitness

    I am so boring with my oats. I just use them for oatmeal and overnight oats. I need to start adding them to my smoothies and try something like this. Thanks for sharing! I think I’ll try using the whole egg and make a sweet one, because I have to get my nut butter addiction in.

  26. RavieNomNoms

    So awesome! I will have to try this!

  27. Heather @ Better With Veggies

    Love this simple idea – what a great way to get some extra protein into bread too (kinda like Ezekiel in that way!). I do love oats in all varieties. :)

  28. Nicole @ FruitnFitness

    I’m planning I make spiced Indian lentils this week and this would go well with it. I love oats, thy are so versatile. My favorite ways to eat them are regular oatmeal or baked into cookies/muffins.

  29. Monique

    Laura, thanks for sharing. I love bread…especially fresh. This is definitely something I can add as an option to meal plans and my clients will love them. Healthier options at its best .

  30. Kasey Shuler @ Well of Health

    I can’t wait to make this! I really despise the taste of gluten-free flour, but love oats, and also love flatbread. This should make my tummy happy! Thanks for sharing!

  31. Purelytwins

    love simple bread recipes, just love how eggs (and egg whites) make making simple breads so easy ;)

  32. Tiffany

    Yes and yes! I don’t know what I love more, oats or easy. Cheers to both!

  33. Meghan@CleanEatsFastFeets

    Everything is a good vehicle for yolk porn. But you knew that already. ;)

    I love the idea of this flat bread. Pinning it, although I still need/want to make your spicy corn bread.

  34. Jess @ JessieBear

    I love easy recipes. I’m SO making this!
