I absolutely love crackers. They're my vice. I find that store-bought crackers are often very salty though, as well as coming in an awful lot of packaging.
After having a play with some ingredients, my daughter & i managed to create this recipe for cheesy crackers. They're nut-free so that she can take them to school.
- 1/2 cup wheat bran
- 1/4 cup sesame seeds
- 1/4 cup flax seeds
- 1/4 cup Parmesan, plus more to sprinkle
- 2 tsp onion powder
- 1/2 tsp garlic oil
- 1/2 cup flax meal
- 1/4 cup wholemeal flour
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 cup water
Pre-heat oven to 180 celcius
In a large bowl, combine all dry ingredients & combine evenly
Add the water bit by bit, stirring between, until a dough forms
On a sheet of baking paper, roll the dough to the desired thickness (I prefer around 2-5mm. The thicker they are, the less crunchy they'll be.
If you want uniform crackers, you'll need to carefully run a knife through the dough to create the shape you want. Otherwise, place the baking paper onto a tray.
Sprinkle some parmasan over the top of the crackers
Bake for around 20-30 minutes or until brown. Be careful to check them before you remove them from the oven as if they aren't cooked enough they'll be chewy rather than crunchy.
