  • 200g (1 3/4 cup) whole spelt flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 195g (3/4 cup + 1 tbsp) Greek yogurt


  1. Combine the spelt flour and baking powder in a medium bowl, then add Greek yogurt. Mix everything with a spoon, then use clean hands to bring everything together.

  2. Dust a clean work surface with flour, then tip out the dough.

  3. Knead the dough for a minute, put into floured bowl and cover with kitchen towel and cool in the fridge for 1 hour.

  4. Dust a work surface and rolling pin with flour, then divide the dough into smaller pieces. Using your hands flatten each ball, then with a rolling pin roll each piece into 8-10cm rounds, roughly 2-3mm thick.

  5. Place the skillet or frying pan on high heat then add 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Cook each flatbread for 1-2 minutes on each side or until puffed up. Remove from the heat and pile on the plate. Brush the flatbreads all over with hearby garlic butter as they come off the pan, then pile on the plate.
