Quick Sweet Nutty Flatbreads

Usually  flat breads are savory and even spicy. I decided to make a change. These flat breads are sweet and go along with fruits and chocolate sauce.

Makes 6 medium flat breads

Almond Paste

3/4 cup Raw Almonds

3/4 cup Powdered Sugar

1 Egg White

1 tsp Almond Extract

A dash of Sea Salt

2 tablespoons sugar

1 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract

2 tablespoons powdered sugar or 2 tablespoons water (optional)


1 cup 2%- yogurt, room temperature

1 cup all-purpose flour (I used 1/2 cup all-purpose flour + 1/2 whole-wheat white flour)

2 teaspoon baking powder

vegetable oil for frying

To make almond paste, add almonds to the food processor and process until completely fine. Add in 1 and 1/2 cups powdered sugar, egg white, almond extract, and sea salt combine for a minute or two. Add sugar and vanilla extract and process until the mixture turns into a paste and starts to combine and gather in the processor.

If the mixture is runny add 2 more tablespoons powdered sugar. If the mixture is too dry, add 2 tablespoons water.

For the dough, in a large bowl mix flour and baking powder. Add yogurt and knead the dough.

To assembly, divide the dough and filling into 6 equal parts. Roll each porting into a thin circle, spread one part of the filling all over the dough. If the filling is thick, using your hands dot a rolled dough with a filling. Roll up and wrap in a snail. Using your hands, flatten the snail and roll out into a medium flatbread. Repeat with the rest of the portions of the dough and filling.

Pour one teaspoon of vegetable oil into a medium skillet and heat on medium heat. Fry flat breads for 2 to 3 minutes, or until golden brown. Flip and fry on the second side for another 2 minutes. Transfer from the pan to a rack to cool slightly before serving. Add more oil as needed. For success, please, don't over-oil pan.

Cut in quarters and serve with fruits or chocolate sauce. Keep in airtight container on a kitchen counter.
