Finally a Cracker Recipe!

I have searched high and low for a good cracker recipe! I have tried the recipe from Nourishing Traditions and for some reason we do not seem to love it as much as everyone else. I've tried making up my own recipes (I try this way to often and fall on my face... way to often!)
Of all the recipes that I have tried this one is the best AND the easiest! Whoo Hoo!

My main motivation for finding a good cracker recipe is so that I have a quick and easy snack that both boys can have while we are out. I hate Goldfish crackers,I hate cereals, I hate baby puff things... I think I'd rather hand both of them a snickers bar! So this seems to be a good compromise! It's not the best and I haven't tried to soak the grains before I made them, I'm not sure if I will because that takes more work and I'm not sure I feel like dealing with more work!
For those who are interested ... here she is....

2 cups whole wheat flour

1/4 cup plus 1 tbs olive oil

1 cup applesauce

1 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp salt 

Mix salt, cinnamon, flour and oil until mix resembles coarse meal. Add applesauce and mix well. Form into ball (add more flour if too sticky - knead in well) and split into halves for rolling. Roll out 1/8 to 1/16 thick on floured surface. Use sharp knife and cut 2" squares from dough - place on baking sheets and prick 2-3 times with fork. (optional - top with sugar and press sugar in to get it to stick into dough). Bake in 350 deg oven for 10 minutes, flip crackers and bake 5- 10 mins more until crispy.

It is really good tasting to me, hopefully Gman will agree. He seems to be my toughest food critic right now!!



  1. This sounds really good! I wonder if you could stick some cheese in there and make cheese crackers.. Test that out for me if you get a chance!

  2. I still need to get you that sunflower seed cracker recipe. I will make a note of it and try to get it to you next week.
