Recipe: Organic Savory Crackers
I finally am able to bake healthy crackers myself. Even my 4-year old loves them, and that does mean something!
For a 12"x18" baking pan you'll need (if possible organic):
* 1 1/2 cups flour (I use whole spelt)
* 1/2 tsp salt
* 3/4 cup sunflower seeds
* 3/4 cup shredded flaxseeds
* 1/2 cup sesame seeds
* 2 tbsp nutritional yeast
* 1 tbsp dried rosemary
* 1 tbsp olive oil
* 1 tbsp maple syrup
* 1 cup water
You can add or change the ingredients as you like. Experiment with other spices and seeds if you like.
Mix all ingredients in a bowl. Add flour or water as needed, you want a pretty firm but flexible dough that you'll be able to roll.
Liam and James preparing the dough
Oil the baking pan and spread the dough, using a rolling pin, until the whole pan is covered.
Then cut it with a knife in as many pieces as you like.
Bake at 350 for about 40 minutes.
Don't forget to check! Depending on the oven, it might take shorter or longer. You want your crackers to be crispy but not burned.
