  • 2 3/4 cups whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 cup milk (any type - I used unsweetened almond milk)
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened apple sauce
  • 1 tbsp. garlic powder
  • fresh cilantro for garnish (can also be mixed into the dough)

  1. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, baking soda and garlic powder until well combined.

  2. Pour in the apple sauce and milk, stirring with a wooden spoon until it become too thick to continue. Then knead with your hands until you have a slightly sticky yet smooth dough.

  3. Break off pieces of dough and roll with a rolling pin on a floured surface. Keep in mind that the naan will hold whatever shape you roll it into, but it will double in thickness as it cooks (roll to about 1/4 inch thickness if you want something the thickness of a slice of bread).

  4. Using a non-stick pan and an oil mister, mist the pan with oil and place a rolled piece of dough into the pan. Spray the top of it with a light coat of oil. Flip frequently until both sides are golden brown.

  5. Remove from pan and allow to cool slightly before serving.
