Kalyn’s Kitchen Picks: Joseph’s Bakery Low-Carb Flax, Oat Bran, and Whole Wheat Pitas

Joseph’s Low-Carb Flax, Oat Bran, and Whole Wheat Pitas are something I’ve loved for years! They aren’t sold in Utah, so I buy them in a package of three from Amazon.com and store in the freezer.

Kalyn's Kitchen Picks: Joseph's Low-Carb Flax, Oat Bran, and Whole Wheat Pitas found on KalynsKitchen.com

In August of 2005 I visited Rhode Island, and while I was there I discovered a low-carb pita bread that was so full of healthy ingredients and delicious that I wrote on my relatively-new food blog about Joseph’s Bakery Oat Bran and Whole Wheat Flour Pita Bread. I brought some of the pita bread and tortillas home with me from that trip, but I never could find them anywhere in Utah.

I might have forgotten about it completely, except that fans of the pita bread kept leaving comments on that post asking where they could get the Joseph’s Bakery products. I checked regularly, but for years there was nowhere to order them online. But obviously that’s not the end of the story, or I wouldn’t be writing about it again now.

Flash forward 2+ years and a lot of food blogging later and one of my best food blogging friends was the lovely Lydia from The Perfect Pantry. Lydia lived in Rhode Island, and she generously offered to send me some of my favorite low-carb pita bread. Meanwhile, someone left a comment letting me know the Joseph’s Bakery products are soon going to be available online. When I heard that (and after Lydia helped me remember how great they were) I decided it was time to make the Joseph’s Bakery Low-Carb Flax, Oat Bran, and Whole Wheat Pitas an official Kalyn’s Kitchen Pick.

And then a few years later I was so excited to find you could buy Joseph’s Low-Carb Flax, Oat Bran, and Whole Wheat Pitas at Amazon.com. (Full disclosure: Kalyn’s Kitchen does earn a few cents on the dollar if you follow that link and buy them at Amazon.) Since then I’ve been buying the three-pack from Amazon every couple of months and keeping them in the freezer.

Joseph’s Bakery Low-Carb Flax, Oat Bran, and Whole Wheat Pitas are delicious, nutritious, high in protein and fiber, low in fat, and low in carbs. (The regular size pita has 9 carbs, but 4 grams of fiber and 0 sugars for only 5 net carbs.) They’re perfect anyone following a low-carb or low-glycemic eating plan, although obviously this product is not gluten-free. I love these when I just need some pita bread, and if you can’t find them where you live, these are definitely worth ordering online.

  1. Pingback: Tender Greek Pork from Mel's Kitchen Cafe (Instant Pot or Slow Cooker) - Slow Cooker or Pressure Cooker

  2. Aggie, just checked and their products are now available online from Josephsbakery.com. Just ordered some pita bread and lavash. (The minimum is a small box of five and the shipping is a little steep, but I will freeze them!

  3. Aggie, how I wish I could find them here!

  4. Kalyn…so funny that I just came across this, I found those pitas once randomly at our Walmart and I loved them! I brought them home b/c of the ingredient list. I haven't seen them in my regular grocery store, so I am going to make it a point to go back and pick some up at Walmart soon. I didn't realize they made tortillas too!

  5. Anonymous, just checked a link and see they are still for sale at Netrition.

  6. Anonymous, I don't know but I can ask my friend Lydia if she still sees them where she shops. I hope they're still making them, they are really good.

  7. My Missouri Wal-Marts have stopped carrying the Joseph's Middle Eastern Bakery Lavash and Tortillas (loved the tortillas, too). I sent a query to Wal-Mart as to why — no response. I see that the web site for Joseph's is out of commission (and for sale). Is this bakery still in business??? Love, love, love these products!

  8. Daniel, great idea. Sounds delicious to me!

  9. This is going to sound funny but it is great. I take these pitas grill up chicken with taco seasoning and make awesome low carb, low calorie and high protein delicious soft shell tacos.

  10. Anali, I do hope you like them after that! And now I really want to try the lavash.

  11. Thanks for this post Kalyn! You totally influenced my buying last night. I had to do some shopping and read this post shortly before I left work. I hadn’t bought bread from the grocery store since December, because of my Homemade Bread Pledge.

    I was thinking that I wanted to buy something healthy and kind of different. I bought the flax, oat bran, and wheat pitas. I haven’t tried them yet, but I’m going to make a sandwich.

  12. Good to know; can’t make a quick snack without fajitas involved somewhere!

  13. I have only tried the Lavash and Pita Breads. The pita bread make excellent pizzas, while the Lavash Bread are great in making crackers.

    With the pita bread, I spray the bottom with no-stick spray and garlic powder. On the other side, I place the sauce, cheese and toppings. Preheat the oven to 390 and bake for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, I up the temperature to 415 for another 10 minutes. In 20 minutes, I have an excellent thin and crispy crust pizza.

    The crackers are great whenever I want something salty and crunchy.

  14. Joseph’s Lavash bread are even better, in my opinion. I think the pita have a funny taste to them. When tomatoes are in season I toast (under broiler) lightly the lavash, spread a Laughing cow cheese, sliced tomato & salt for a great snack. Glad you discovered them!

  15. hmm lemme see if i could get these from some upscale supermarkets here in hong kong ^^ i wanna try your pita recipes

  16. Lydia, you are just the best!

    Sounds like I should try the lavash too. But first I need to eat my tortillas and pita bread (most of which are in the freezer.)

  17. I love these pitas! I found them at our local Wally’s a couple of years ago now–perfect for pizzas and with hummus.

    Though I must admit, Kalyn, I love their lavash even more.

  18. You should try the Josephs Lavash bread they have. It is so soft and delicious and has all the goodness too. Great for wraps.

    I get it all the time and my 3 year old eats it too. Put some hummus and veggies. Yum

  19. So happy to send you goodies from the East (Coast!) — hooray for products that reduce our carb intake without sacrificing flavor.
