If you happen to have buttermilk in your fridge, by all means use it in this recipe; we call for plain non-fat yogurt because it's a little more common.


Whole-grain wheat flour

2 cup(s)

Baking powder

2 tsp(s)

Canola oil

3 tsp(s)

Plain fat free yogurt

1 cup(s)

Plain fat free yogurt

2 tbsp(s)


  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. In a large bowl, combine flour and baking powder; stir in oil. Add yogurt and stir to form a soft dough. Lightly flour your hand and knead dough in bowl 1 minute.
  2. Lightly flour a work surface and rolling pin. Roll out dough to 1/2-inch thick; cut into 20 squares. Transfer to a nonstick baking sheet. Bake until lightly browned, about 15 minutes. Serve hot.


If you don't have buttermilk or non-fat yogurt on hand, put 1 tablespoon lemon juice or vinegar (distilled white, cider, or even white-wine vinegar will work) in a 2-cup glass measure and add enough milk to make 1 1/4 cups. Stir, then let stand 5 minutes.
