Homemade Crackers

The first time I ate this kind of crackers was ones bought from a bio store. I really loved them but the high price made me find a recipe so I can make homemade crackers whenever I am craving for some.

Glad to share with you this recipe for easy, thin, healthy homemade crackers, that can be made with sunflower, sesame or poppy seeds and with various seasonings. These crackers go very well served alongside appetizer dips.

    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?

    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.
