Homemade Crackers

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 them at home 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. They also go very well as appetizer base.

The crackers look wonderful. I would never think of making them at all.

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
