1 c. unbleached flour
1 cup durum/semolina flour
1/2 t. salt
1 t. quick rising yeast
2 T. toasted sesame seeds (optional, but healthy)
2 T. Chia Seeds (available at grocery stores)
2 T. soft margarine
3/4 c. warm water

Whisk together flour, salt, yeast, and seeds. Work in the margarine and warm water, then mix and knead the dough until it becomes smooth and pliable. Form dough into a ball, place in an oil-sprayed bowl and cover with t-towel for about an hour until it becomes puffy. Turn the dough onto a sprayed surface and foldin over several times. Divide dough into six pieces and roll into balls. Cover balls with a damp towel to rest for 10 minutes. Roll each ball into an 8" circles. Heat frying pan on medium heat, then spray with cooking spray just for the first flatbread. Fry for 1 to 2 minutes until lightly brown. Flip and do other side. Stack the flatbreads as you take them out of the skillet to keep them warm and soft. Serve warm with honey. Or serve as a taco or for any of your favorite sandwich fillings. Put leftovers in a plastic bag and store in frig. Microwave to warm.

Personal Notes:
Cha-cha-cha-Chia seeds don't just sprout into unique "pets" (remember those?). They also are an excellent source of Omega-3. Chia seeds actually contain more Omega-3 than flax seeds.
