I used to buy these breakfast "pitas" from the grocery store, but figured out how to make them at home - for a heck of alot less. They're more like small, flatbreads, and I slice them in half, toast them, and spread them with peanut butter, honey, or jam. Yum! They're not very sweet, as there isn't much sugar in them.

Hmm, my pitas turned into little loaves of bread. I wonder if it's supposed to read 1 teaspoon active dry yeast not 1 tablespoon? These didn't turn out thin like standard pita bread. Regardless, ~Tasty~ loved these and there's plenty on hand this week for breakfasts and smackerels. Reviewed for Veg Swap/Tag July 2010.
- 2 cups whole wheat flour
- 1 1⁄2 cups bread flour or 1 1⁄2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon dry yeast
- 1 1⁄4 cups warm water (120-130F degrees)
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon sugar or 1 tablespoon honey
- 1⁄2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 cup apple, chopped
- 1 cup raisins
Directions See How It's Made
- 1. Place ingredients except apples and raisins in bread machine in order that your machine specifies.
- 2. Set to "dough" setting and allow to complete cycle, adding the apples and raisins when your machine alerts you to add nuts/fruit. I actually have found that kneading these in by hand is actually easier, as they're a bit finicky to get worked through the dough.
- 3. Separate into 10 balls. Press each ball into a 4" round with your hands - you'll likely need to stuff some raisins and apples back in - it's worth it. Place on nonstick cookie sheets and allow to rise for 30 minutes.
- 4. Preheat oven to 500. Flip rounds, then place in oven for 5 minutes, flip again; turn oven down to 350 and bake for 15-20 minutes longer, until cooked through.
- 5. Remove from pan onto clean towel and cover while cooling.
