2 Ingredient No Flour Flatbread (No yeast!)

These quick and easy flatbreads need just TWO ingredients and no yeast- Just blended oats! Made with no flour, they are versatile, chewy and durable, and are naturally gluten-free, vegan, dairy free and wheat free! 

2 Ingredient flatbread

Baking bread-like products have become so popular now! With many of us now spending more and more time at home, there’s nothing better than baking from scratch!

However, yeast and flour have also become super hard to find. I went to FOUR supermarkets to find some flour, and nothing was left!

To combat this, I’m sharing one of my foolproof bread recipes, made with no flour and no yeast.

It’s also made with just 2 ingredients.

This oat flour flatbread is your answer!

Does flatbread have wheat?

Traditional flatbread does contain wheat, usually in the form of flour. In fact, I have a homemade 2 ingredient flatbread recipe using self-rising flour.

However, this recipe does NOT contain wheat, as it contains oats. Oats are considered to be a grain, similar to couscous, rice, and pasta.

How do you make flourless and wheat-free flatbread from scratch

The ingredients

  • Old fashioned oats (Rolled oats)– Oats replaces the need for any flour in this recipe. As we’ll be blending it into a flour-like consistency, you can also use quick oats.
  • Milk of choice OR water– To thicken the dough! I prefer using unsweetened almond milk, as I find just using water weakens the texture of the flatbread.
  • Seasonings– Optional, but recommended, especially if you plan on using these as wraps or pizza bases.

The instructions

To start, in a high-speed blender or food processor, blend your oats into a flour-like consistency. Alternatively, you can skip this step if you already have homemade oat flour.

Then, you’ll transfer the flour into a large mixing bowl. Add your milk of choice/water and seasonings, and mix well until combined.

Next, you’ll want to grease a non-stick pan. Before heating it up, pour some of the batter into the pan, and spread it out, using a rubber spatula.

Heat the pan on medium heat. Cook for 2-3 minutes, or until you can see dry patches on top of the surface. Flip the flatbread and cook for a further 2 minutes. Remove the cooked flatbread from the pan, and repeat the process until you have used up all the batter.

NOTE: Depending on how thick or thin your flatbreads are, you can make between 2-4.

Why substitute the flour for oats

This recipe uses rolled oats ground up, which is one of my favorite flour-like substitute for using on its own because it has natural, sticky, non-gluten binding power to it.

So after baking the flatbread has great texture. That oat stickiness also means that the batter will thicken the longer it sits, so mix and cook immediately.

Or if it does get too thick to pour, add more milk before cooking.

Tips for PERFECT 2 ingredient flourless flatbread

There are 2 kinds of flatbread: the kind you roll and the kind you pour.

The tricky part about roll-out flatbread is making a dough that is dry/firm enough to be rolled, but not so dry that it turns into a parched flatbread desert (I just spelled that dessert on accident…all this savory talk is clearly messing with me!) after cooking.

This is extra tricky when you are working with gluten-free flours.

But pour-out flatbread is a game-changer because you are working with a batter, not a dough. That means more moisture and less time spent kneading and rolling and praying it makes it to the pan in one piece.

How do you serve flatbread?

  • Flatbread pizza– Use the cooked flatbread as a substitute for pizza crusts. Top it with your favorite toppings and bake in a preheated oven for 5-10 minutes, or until the cheese has melted.
  • Flatbread sandwich– Load it up with your favorite toppings and enjoy!
  • Side dish– Serve flatbread as a side dish for curries, stews or casseroles.

Are flatbread and naan the same?

No flatbread and naan are two different bread. Naan is generally thicker, more doughy and fluffier in texture.

This is a fantastic naan recipe (and it needs just 2 ingredients!).

    1. What a fun idea! I love oats in the morning, and I love oats at midday…so it stands to reason that I would also love oats at night. In pizza form. YES! 🙂

    2. I have dabbled in Paleo type of eating…and going without breads/wraps is the worst!! This is a great option!! I am going to go grain-free in December…so I would probably have to play with coconut flour…

    3. I see you found my small sauce recipe stash too, thank you for linking to those! I’m thinking cinnamon raisin flatbread ice cream burrito with caramel sauce next time I make it. Oh and sprinkles…duh!

    4. Hi,

      I’d like to try this recipe however would you please tell me what the T stands for in “1/2 cup + 1 T gluten free rolled oats” ?

      Sorry if the question seems stupid or awkward.

      Thanks for your feedback.

    5. I admit I almost cried when I found this recipe (linked from the Chunky Monkey Breakfast Pizza recipe). It is SO DIFFICULT to find wheat, soy, and egg-free crust recipes. I’m so excited to try this!!!

      1. I totally agree with Kristen’s comment above!!! My toddler is sensitive to most of the common allergens but she gobbled two of these up in a matter of minutes! I can’t wait to try the different variations. I’m curious if you have tried making a big batch of these and freezing them? Thank you SO MUCH for this recipe!
