You may have noticed I’ve been on a spelt kick as of late. It might have something to do with the 6 pound bag of spelt flour I got at a bulk bin sale. 😉 My spelt adventures so far have included a quickbread, a pizza crust, and, most recently, pancakes! So it’s only natural that crackers would be next.
I love how these turned out. Very nutty and hearty, they’ve been good with just about every spread, dip, or topping I’ve tried them with! And, best of all, they’re easy to toss together, easy to roll out, and relatively quick to bake.
- 1 1/4 cup spelt four
- 2 tbs flaxseed meal
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 2 tsp sugar
- 2 tbs olive oil
- 1/4 cup water
Preheat oven to 400 F.
Mix all the dry ingredients. Make a well in the center and mix in wet ingredients. If it’s a little dry, add a little more water until it forms a ball of dough.
With a rolling pin, roll out the dough until it reaches your desired thickness, and cut into desired shape with a pizza cutter or cookie cutter.
Place the crackers on a greased baking sheet and prick them with a fork. Bake at 400 F until golden brown around the edges, about 15 minutes (by my oven, at least! I’m starting to question the accuracy of my oven temp though…so maybe you’ll want to keep an eye on them…)
Allow to cool and enjoy with your favorite cracker toppings! They pair wonderfully with peanut butter.
