What is unleavened bread?
Unleavened bread is bread that is made with no yeast or any leavening agents like baking powder, baking soda (sodium bicarbonate), and potassium bicarbonate. Leaven is an ingredient that produces fermentation or a chemical process to make the dough rise. Widely known as matzo, matzah, or matza, it’s a yeast-free bread eaten by Christians and Jews during the Holy Days of Passover (Pesah) and Days of Unleavened Bread.
Time needed: 20 minutes.
How to make bread without yeast or baking powder from scratch?
- Knead the dough
First, in a medium-sized bowl, mix whole wheat flour and salt. Then gently and gradually add lukewarm water. Next, knead with quick and firm movements for about 3 minutes or until you get a smooth and elastic dough. If the dough is sticky, add a little bit more flour to it. Don’t let the dough rest after preparation, simply continue to form balls and roll it out immediately.
- Form the unleavened flatbread
After that, divide the dough into 4 equal balls and roll them out with rolling pin-thin discs. As you are kneading it, make sure that your hands and your work surface are coated in a light dusting of flour. At the same time, preheat the oven to 400°F / 200°C.
- Bake it
Next, prick the flatbreads with a fork (5-6 times each) and place them on baking paper on a sheet pan. Put it in the oven and bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown.
- Serve your no-yeast bread
Finally, remove your unleavened bread from the oven and serve immediately while warm. If you have any leftovers, let them cool and store them wrapped in stretch foil for 2-3 days.

Passover is a memorial. We observe Passover in the memorial of Jesus Christ our Savior. The Feast of Passover demonstrates our urgent need to have our sins forgiven so we can live a life of righteousness. The evening before His crucifixion while Jesus Christ was keeping the Passover with His disciples, He introduced new symbols and provided specific instructions for the New Testament Passover observance. They were given to help us solemnly remember the true Passover Lamb. On this significant day, we are reminded of both the suffering and death of our Savior.
Since leaven typically puffs things up, it is linked with the root of many pride and many sins. Some of the other spiritually damaging sins that leaven pictures in the Bible are hate, wickedness, hypocrisy, immorality, and wrong teachings. Yeast also spreads and permeates the dough unseen. This means that we should closely examine our lives for sin, repent and seek God’s help to remove it and live in obedience to His commandments. In addition to putting sin out, we are to replace it with righteousness, good thoughts, and actions, with sincerity and truth – symbolized by eating the unleavened bread.
