A Tasty Calorie-Wise Diet Bread Recipe for Your Morning Table - Rise & Shine! Weight Loss is a-happening!
While bread has taken a 'kneading' from low carbohydrate and restricted-carb diet plans, the ancient saying 'Bread is the staff of life' beats to life because indeed - what's life without hot golden bread fresh from the oven? The smell alone is enough to brighten our day.
And in this day and age, we don't have to do anything close to the hard work of our forefathers - toiling to grow the grain, trusting and praying for rain to water the crops, thrashing the wheat, grinding the wheat and so forth. And our foremothers certainly didn't own fancy mega-dollar ovens. Even so, the bread was perfection as it came off the coals.
I'm rather tired after that speech, aren't you? Lucky for us that we don't have to grow all that wheat and so forth. With this said, you will need the ingredients listed below to prepare this low calorie flatbread recipe. If you're like me - you adore flatbread. It's so medieval and makes me think of lighthearted things in life. And a happy dieter is a contended dieter.
While traditional flatbread is fabulous it takes time to make, so we're going to take a shortcut by making use of flour tortilla shells. They substitute nicely for flatbread and when cooked to perfection, they make a delicous base for our flatbread recipe.
Begin making this recipe by heating peaches in microwave (another contraption that our forefathers & mothers didn't have) on medium until warmed - about a minute and a half in my cheap-old microwave. Take care not to overheat or peaches will disintegrate and you certainly don't want that to happen. Allow peaches to rest while you cook your flatbread.
To cook flatbread, spray tortilla generously with butter spray. Cook on medium heat in a pan sprayed with the no calorie cooking spray. Cook until golden-crisped. Flatbread should not be limp when removed from pan. If so, return and slowly bring to that golden-crisped stage. Next, remove and arrange in six snazzy saucers.
Add the cinnamon, Splenda, brown sugar and raisins to the resting eaches and stir gently to incorporate evenly. At this point, you may do one of two things:
1. With a slotted spoon, transfer the peach mixture onto the flatbreads and dollop with topping. Dust with powdered sugar, if desired.
2. Drain juices from mixture (should have about 1 cup; if you don't then add apple juice or juice from canned light peaches to make up difference or a bit of water).
Heat juice until hot, then thicken as you would gravy. I use a generous spoon of cornstarch that has been dissolved in a bit of water, then constantly stir when I add it to the hot juice to prevent clumps. Add peaches.
Transfer mixture onto flatbreadsand dollop with topping. Dust with powdered sugar, if desired. This makes a thick fruit topping for your flatbread.
I hope that you and your family and friends enjoy this low calorie recipe.

Sugar free/fat free yogurt may also be added rather than the topping for a healthier breakfast bread.
If you are short on time, opt for reduced calorie cherry pie filling. It's awesome!
Flatbread may be cooked until golden, but not golden-crisped and then folded as one would an omelet.
