I’ve created a one-stop-shop for Passover and the Days of Unleavened Bread, all the unleavened bread recipes you’ll need for a wonderful spring holy days.
If you’re looking for how to make unleavened bread, I’ve got your back. Whether it’s something simple for memorializing the Passover and eating each day, a treat like cottage cheese rolls, or a delicious dessert for the Night to Be Much Observed, this post has tons of options.
One thing before we dive in: I keep the Days of Unleavened Bread (the week following Passover) as laid out in the bible, so I avoid leavening (sometimes called a rising agent). This can be things like yeast, baking powder, etc. (definition here). My understanding is that some Jewish people (particularly Orthodox Jews) may keep these days differently and also avoid flour and certain grains. I can’t speak to that in any way, and only you know how you keep the Passover season. You do you. But please don’t send me angry comments, you have been warned 🙂
Regular ol’ unleavened bread
Each of these gives instructions on how to make the unleavened bread. Since it doesn’t have yeast and doesn’t need to rise, it’s generally quite simple…very little kneading, no waiting, nothing complex.

This of course doesn’t include naturally/accidentally unleavened desserts like puddings, fruit crisps, pots de creme, pies, no-bake cookies, and coconut milk ice creams—of which there are MANY on this blog! The world is your oyster so give the search bar a go for those.
