Ingredients & Substitutions

Here is everything you need to make easy flatbread with cottage cheese:

Cottage Cheese: You can use any cottage cheese variety you like. My favorite is full-fat cottage cheese for the most creaminess. 

Eggs: Replace each egg with 1 tablespoon of ground flaxseed mixed with 2.5 tablespoons of water. I have not tried this substitution.

Grated Parmesan Cheese: Use 1-2 tablespoons of nutritional yeast for a cheesy flavor without dairy. You can also use mozzarella cheese, cheddar cheese, or Monterey Jack cheese.

Garlic Powder: Substitute with 1-2 cloves of minced fresh garlic. You can also replace it with onion powder for a different flavor.

Italian Seasoning: Use a blend of equal parts dried basil, oregano, rosemary, and thyme.

Salt: Replace with an equal amount of sea salt.

Black Pepper: Substitute with a dash of white pepper for a milder flavor.

Sesame Seeds (Optional): These add a little crunch and make it look more like a traditional flatbread. You can omit it.

Poppy Seeds (Optional): You can replace these with chia seeds or omit them.

How to Make My Healthy High-Protein Cottage Cheese Flatbread Recipe

Here are easy, detailed, step-by-step instructions for making my easy flat bread recipe. The instructions are also repeated in the recipe card at the bottom of this blog post.

Step 1: Blend the Flatbread Batter

Preheat your oven to 350°F. Line an 8×8 baking pan with parchment paper or lightly grease it.

In a blender or food processor, or a blender cup with an immersion blender, add 1 cup of cottage cheese, 2 eggs, 2 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese, 1 teaspoon garlic powder, 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and a dash of pepper. Blend until the mixture is smooth and well combined, ensuring there are no lumps.

Adding the batter ingredients to a blender cup.

Step 2: Pour and Bake

Pour the blended mixture onto the prepared baking sheet. Use a spatula to spread it evenly into a flat, even layer, about 1/4 inch thick.

Optional Topping: Sprinkle sesame seeds and poppy seeds evenly over the top.

Bake for 30 minutes or until the flatbread has a golden brown color and is firm to the touch. It will be puffy but will deflate as it cools.

Remove the flatbread from the oven and let it cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes. Once cooled, transfer to a cutting board and slice into desired shapes and sizes.

Enjoy the flatbread as a base for sandwiches, with your favorite toppings, or on its own as a delicious, high-protein snack.
