I love the airy, chewy inside and the crisp, salty exterior of this garlic naan recipe. Using ingredients like whole wheat flour and coconut oil creates a healthier (and even tastier) snack. You'll love this nutty bread smeared with garlic confit and sea salt. —Morgan Harrison, Astoria, New York


- 1/4 cup coconut oil

- 6 garlic cloves, peeled

For garlic confit, preheat oven to 250°. Place coconut oil and garlic in a small ovenproof bowl. Cover and bake until garlic is soft and golden, about 2 hours. Cool completely.

For naan, in a small bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. In a large bowl, combine whole wheat flour, yogurt, 1 tablespoon coconut oil, sugar, salt, yeast mixture and 1/2 cup flour; beat on medium speed until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough (dough will be sticky).

Turn dough onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease the top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.

Punch down dough. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide into 8 pieces. Roll each piece into a 1/4-in.-thick oval. In a large skillet, heat canola oil and remaining 1 tablespoon coconut oil over medium-high heat. Working in batches, cook naan until golden brown, 1-2 minutes. Turn; cook until golden brown, 1-2 minutes longer. Repeat with remaining dough. Serve with garlic confit.
