I’ve always loved salty crackers, they were one of my favourite snacks when I was a kid. Savory, delicious, aromatic crackers that crunch under your teeth and melt in your mouth. Unfortunately, neither crackers nor most snack foods are not spared from grease, sugar and various additives. So here is a DIY version.
I decided for these to be healthy crackers – you’ve probably realized by now that I like to snack without dealing with a guilty concious. At home I had sesame and flax seeds with which rosemary seemed to be a good combination, so I decided to build the recipe on those three ingredients. I used whole wheat flour and butter and they really gave a nice crispness and the ‘crack’ sound when you bite them, and yet they remained soft on the inside. They are excellent with a variety of sauces and dips, I made some from sour cream, yogurt and garlic and it worked great.
They are not difficult to prepare, try them and tell how you liked them!
- 200 g wholemeal flour
- 3 tablespoons sesame
- 3 tablespoons flax (I'm half grind)
- 1 sprig rosemary, minced (or dried, about 1 teaspoon)
- 60 g butter at room temperature
- 100 ml of water
- 1 teaspoon salt
- Preheat the oven to 200 ° C, and line the pan with parchment paper.
- Of all the ingredients knead the dough.
- On a floured surface roll it out to about 3 mm thick. Cut into shapes that you want and arrange in the pan.
- Bake for 15-20 minutes, just until they begin to brown slightly.
- Cool and store in an airtight container. Bon appetit!
