Canadian Native American Bannocks

Prep Time5 mins
Cook Time15 mins


  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons oil traditionally, lard will be used


  • In a large bowl, combine flour, salt and baking powder.
  • Add milk and mix until just combined. At first, the dough will seem dry, but keep on mixing and it will come together into a soft scone-like dough.
  • Heat a cast iron skillet with the oil. Using a pastry brush, brush the oil up the sides of the pan.
  • Transfer dough to skillet and using an oiled rubber spatula, spread in an even layer. Take the pan off the heat while you are doing this. Cook on medium low heat for 5 minutes. The top will be puffy.
  • Flip and cook on the other side another 5-10 minutes, until browned on under side.
  • Serve drizzled with honey.


Although not traditional, I used 1/2 whole wheat flour to add some fiber.
