Custom Crackers

image.jpeg

I’ve been using this recipe for crackers for years now. It started when I had eliminated sugar and refined carbs from my diet. They are high fiber, sugar-free and are open to all sorts of flavour combination creations! And once again, you are in control of the quality of ingredients. Today I added nutritional yeast and dried onions to give them a sour cream and chives kick and we used our shamrock cutter for the festivity and like always, the recipe turned out great!

Here’s the basic recipe:

  • 2 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 tbsp flax seed (optional)
  • 1/4 cup oil
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp salt

Mix up the dough and roll thinly with rolling pin, cut into desired shapes and bake on parchment paper at 375* for 10-15mins or until golden brown and crispy.

You can add any variety of herbs or spices, seeds and even nuts right into the dough or sprinkle on top of the rolled out dough and press it in with an extra roll. Some ideas: sesame seeds, Parmesan, basil, parsley, Rosemary, thyme, garlic powder, onion powder, chili powder, chili flakes, paprika, etc.  And they’re extremely kid friendly for both the creating and nibbling!  E helped me roll out the dough and cut it into shapes.  (Often times I just use a pizza cutter and make rectangles, it’s quite a bit quicker and less tedious than using a cutter but other shapes are obviously more fun!) These crackers are yummy on an antipasto-style platter or with a steaming bowl of soup or chili.  There’s an unlimited amount of ways you can modify these delicious little Custom Crackers…I’d love to hear how you make them your own!
