Oat, whole wheat, onion, and caraway flat breat is delicious and quick way to make vegan bread for making a sandwich or for toasting for breakfast, or to enjoy any other time of the day. Preparaation time is about eight to ten minutes and baking time is about five minutes in a microwave oven.

There are basically two ways of making an unleavened flat bread: the ingredients can be mixed together into the consistency of a thick pancake batter, or kneaded together like bread dough. With either method, the finished texture of the flat bread will be chewier than leavened bread, and more like that of a pita or tortilla.

Place the quick oats and whole wheat flour in a mixing bowl.

Wash and peel the onion, cut into chunks and place in the container of a high speed blender, add the caraway seeds and hot sauce, cover, and run the blender at high speed until the contents are smooth. The total amount of the onion liquid portion of the bread dough should be about 1 cup, for each cup of flour.

Pour about 1/2 of the liquid portion into the mixing bowl and thoroughly mix together or knead into the consistency you desire, add additional onion liquid or water as needed.


If you are making the dough the soft way, scoop it out onto a large microwaveable plate, smooth it out and place in the microwave oven on high heat for about 4 minutes or until the top surface is no longer soft like batter in the center. Then using a spatula, carefully slide it around and under the flat bread to loosen it from the plate and flip it over. If it is still soft on the bottom, then bake for another minute or two, until it is not longer wet.

The oats will help keep the flat bread softer, so be careful not to over cook.

If you are making the flat bread from a bread dough consistency, dust the outside of the dough ball with a little flour, flatten it out into a flat round shape, and bake either in the microwave oven (as above), but shorten the baking time a little, or bake in a conventional oven at 350 degrees on a pizza or baking pan until it bakes to the consistency you desire. You may also notice that the flat bread may begin to puff up and separate like a pita bread.

In the conventional oven, it is not necessary to turn over the flat bread, but as soon as the bread is firm to the touch, but not hard, remove from the oven and cool on a wire rack.

Potato, Onion, Oat, and Whole Wheat Flat Bread SandwichWhen baked, remove from the oven, serve, and enjoy.

One of the ways we enjoy these softer flat breads is in sandwiches, such as the one shown in the photo to the right, which is made by cutting the flat bread in half, and adding your favorite fillings and condiments. This one has miso, mustard, pickled pepper rings, onion slices, and lettuce. (To enlarge the photo of the potato onion oat whole wheat flat bread sandwich, click on the photo or link)

Vegan FlagThe above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31): 'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so. God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV) Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!
