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!

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

  • 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?

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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 .
