Whole Wheat Fry Bread

Whole Wheat Fry Bread
Ready In: 45 minutes
Serves: 8
Whole-grain flour lends a nutty flavor and lovely color to the bread.

What you'll need

Spatula or spoon
large mixing bowl
Rolling pin
Lightly floured surface (counter or cutting board)
Large skillet
Plastic wrap
Measuring cups
Measuring spoons


Serves 8
1 cup Whole Wheat Flour
1 cup White Whole Wheat Flour plus extra for rolling
2 teaspoons Baking Powder
1 teaspoon Sugar
1 cup Fat-free Milk
1/4 cup Vegetable Oil


1.In a mixing bowl, combine flours, baking powder, sugar and milk. Stir until the dough comes together.
2.Knead the dough on a lightly floured surface until smooth. Cover and let rest for 20 minutes. (Or wrap well and refrigerate overnight.)
3.Divide dough into 8 pieces. Roll each piece into a circle or an oval, using a little extra flour to keep the dough from sticking. Prick through dough several times with a fork.
4.Heat oil in a large skillet over medium. Cook bread until golden brown, about 3 minutes each side.

Chef's Tips

  • Resting the dough after kneading will allow you to roll out the rounds more easily. Pricking them with a fork or small knife helps keep them flat while cooking.
  • You can also cook the bread over a grill or in an oven. Mix 1 tablespoon oil into the dough. To bake, arrange rounds on a baking sheet and cook for 15 minutes at 425°F. To grill, cook to 3 to 5 minutes on each side over medium coals.
