Pita Pockets ~ Mix Version

in Mixes, Recipes

We had a little discussion on the Facebook fan page yesterday about posting more "convience food" type mixes. I talked about my new goal to put away a "convience mix" each time I bake something now. I've been saving the jars from mayo, salsa, ect, and now I've started to fill those jars with little mixes. My own brand of pre-packaged food! Sometimes after a long day I feel too tired to cook and sometimes making every single meal from scratch takes alot of out you, so it's nice to have a little shortcut! So here is how I put together the pita pocket mix in a jar.

Mix in the jar:

  • 1 1/2 t. salt
  • 3 c. flour(can be half wheat half white or any mixture)

In a little packet on the top of the jar:

  • 2 t. yeast
  • 1 t. sugar

Note: I put these in some little packets I found at Michael's, they are really cheap and I'll rinse them and reuse them just like a plastic baggie. I put the yeast in the bottom of the baggie, folded it a few times and then put in the sugar. That way I could use the same bag but they aren't touching.

On the front of the jar you can put this:

"Mix yeast packet with 1 1/2 warm water. Mix flour mixture with 2 T oil. Mix both mixtures together. Knead for 10 minutes. Let rise for 90 minutes. Divide into 8 rolls. Roll out. Bake at 400F for 3 minutes. Flip. Bake 1 minute."

Have you tried any gluten free flours for this? I would love some Pita Pockets! I just bought some whole grain ones for my son who will eat chicken salad but it does not stay in the sandwich (he is 2) so I thought it would be a great try.
