How can I make a thin crisp bread with pure oat flour?(no wheat or any other flour added). The hard part is how to raise it n make it crisp

I couldn't make it crispy using yeast, BP, baker's ammonia...

Baking powder and or soda should leven it.sugar will help brown the product. That should also make it crisp.
I saw a recipe on line about peanutbutter gooey bars. It's made with garbanzo or white beans. Look for black bean brownies. I found several healthy cookie recipes. I think the same principles would apply to bread.
Yeast may need glutton to leven.

It is not possible to make a thin crisp bread with pure oat flour. This is because the bread will not rise to become crisp. You need to add some wheat flour so as to have the kind of recipe that you want. Details on how to make a crisp bread are available at http://bitterbaker.com/how-to-make-crispbread/.

Thanks for the info, but I've seen several crisp breads which the manufacturers say they use no wheat flour in them, wondering what the secret might be!

sugar? xanthan gum? I'm guessing here, never actually made it... I found this page, which might help:

ThanQ! it was a good article, but unfortunately there was no words about any additives. but about the sugar or xanthan gum, do you have any suggestion about the dose? I want to try those two

I do not even know what xanthan gum looks like. I only found it on the internet:

I am wondering why you want it to rise if you're making flatbread?
