Homemade flatbread and Guacamole

Once again, another recipe to use up ripe avocados. Thought of making guacamole because it was a simple healthy snack that didn’t require many ingredients. Only one problem though, I had no crackers.

Coincidently, I had flatbread on the brain from some article I read a few days before

First flatbread experience, so I went with this recipe.

  • 2 1/4 tsp active yeast
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 3/4 cup WW flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 3/4 cup water (might need more)
  • 1 teaspoon oil
  1. In a bowl combine the yeast, sugar, flour, and salt. Mix well to incorporate everything. Add the water and mix with a fork until the dough begins to form a ball, turn it on to a board and knead with the heel of your hand until the dough is smooth and elastic.
  2. Coat a bowl with oil. Place dough in bowl, and cover with a damp cloth. Put in a warm spot to rise until double in size, about 1 hour.
  3. When the dough has doubled in size, punch the dough, scrape it onto the counter and knead it lightly into a smooth ball. Cut into 20 pieces and with a rolling pin roll out to form very flat 5 to 6-inch circles.
  4. Preheat a stove top grill pan over medium high. Do not oil. Place bread on hot grill and cook without touching it until you see bubbles on the surface, about 1 to 2 minutes. Turn and continue to cook 1 to 2 minutes more or until bread has puffed up. Serve immediately.

So good fresh off the stove. I liked it better with a bit more crunch, so I cooked it a little longer.

Easy Guacamole

  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 1 tbsp onion, finely chopped
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tbsp lime juice
  • Salt and pepper
  1. Magic bullet everything until smooth. Alternatively, you could also mash everything together with a fork if you don’t have a blender.

Great snacking option, perfect for school or work or whenever. I unfortunately can’t tell you how the flatbread tasted the next day, because there was none left…

    Looks good! But WW always has that heaviness to it.
