Homemade Crackers

The first time I tried these crackers was when I purchased them from a health food store. I absolutely adored their taste, but the steep price tag prompted me to search for a recipe, allowing me to recreate these delectable crackers at home whenever the craving strikes. Glad to share with you this recipe for easy, thin, healthy homemade crackers.

These crackers can be made with sunflower, sesame or poppy seeds and with various seasonings. These crackers pair wonderfully with appetizer dips, making them a versatile addition to any spread.

How to make homemade crackers

Begin by combining flour with wheat bran, salt, and sesame seeds in a medium bowl. Add water and oil to the flour mixture, then mix everything together until well combined. Knead the dough until it becomes smooth and easily pulls away from the sides of the bowl.

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F (180 Celsius). Divide the dough into two equal pieces. Place each piece onto a separate sheet of parchment paper. Roll out each piece of dough into a thin rectangular shape, about 1/10 inch (2 mm) thick. Use a pastry cutting wheel to slice the dough into small rectangles, then prick each rectangle with a fork.

Transfer each sheet of parchment paper with the dough rectangles onto a baking sheet. Bake in the preheated oven for about 10 to 15 minutes, or until the crackers are golden and crispy. Once baked, remove them from the baking sheet and allow them to cool completely before serving.

Hope you will try these amazing homemade crackers and enjoy them as a delicious snack! If you do, make sure to share the photos with me on Instagram. Would love to see how these turn out for you.

    Yum! This recipe looks great. Where can you buy wheat husk?

    I bought wheat husk form a bio food store. It is very healthy and I like to use it in many recipes: crepes, bread, crackers, etc

    Those are so pretty, and they look soooo flavorful! Looks unbelievably easy to make. I always thought making crackers should be extremely time consuming. I get the feeling I will be giving these little guys a try in a very near future!

    These look very easy. The one time I made wheat crackers they came out terribly, but it was a much more complicated recipe. I will have to try this!

    I’ve been looking for a healthy homemade cracker recipe! But I can’t seem to find wheat husk at any of the grocery stores in my area. Do you know of any substitutes that might work?

  9. Meropi Author says:

    Hi, thanks for sharing. Can I substitute wheat flour with rye flour? Do I have to add more water and how much. Tnks

    I just made these crackers. The dough came together easily and well, and it was easy to roll the crackers out and cut them. They have good flavor, and the ingredients are great. I made them as described in the recipe, but I assume flax or any other small seed could be used instead of or in addition to sesame. The reason I give them a 4 or 4.5 instead of a 5 is that the cooking time needed to be much longer, 20 minutes rather than 10 to 15, and the crackers did not get very crispy. I got them out of the oven, turned the oven down to 200F, and left them there for 10 more minutes. I think they are crispy now. I think this is a very good recipe overall. Thank you.
