Default Homemade Crackers

Does anyone have a recipe for homemade crackers? I'd love to find new ways to use up all of my seeds.

I tried a recipe the other day and tweaked it by using up some of my seeds (esp. all that caraway that I have) and it was super easy, plus the crackers turned out great...very gourmet! I'll have to look for the base recipe that I used and post it.

Do you make sourdough? You can use the discard for crackers.

I have a great recipe for some fantastic snack crackers that you start with store bought Saltine crackers. I bet you could add some of your seeds to this & they would be good. These crackers are so good that it's hard to stop eating them.

Billy D's Crackers
1 Box Premium saltine crackers (4 packages)
1 1/2 cups canola Oil (not vegetable oil)
1 tablespoon crushed red pepper
1 tablespoon ground garlic
1 teaspoon ground red pepper
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 pkg. dry ranch dressing mix
Put crackers in a large bowl (with lid)
Mix all ingredients in a jar & shake well and pour some over the crackers, gently toss, repeat with more oil & toss.
Shake oil in jar before each time you pour over cracker.
Put lid on bowl. Crackers will keep a long time.

That's a good idea. I'm making some sourdough starter right now. (I must be crazy in this heat and smoke, but oh well.) Do you have more tips on this subject? Do you spread out the starter, or make a dough?

My batch was made using almond flour, chickpea flour, rolled oats, lots of various seeds, nutritional yeast, salt and olive oil. I just combined the ingredients, smooshed it all into a baking tray lined with foil and oiled, then baked for about an hour in a 300 degree F oven. After they cooled, I broke them up into random pieces. Really good!!! My DH ate most of them in one sitting.

Here's a similar one that is vegan: https://simple-veganista.com/rosemary-almond-crackers/

The recipes are endless and most are very easy to make. With store-bought crackers costing around $5-6 for a small box, I think that making your own is worth it. Plus, mine tasted better, if I do say so myself.

DH is keto and we have adapted this recipe. https://www.dietdoctor.com/recipes/l...ame-crispbread There is a lot of liquid in this recipe for the amount of seeds. You can pretty much throw in anything but we use

1 3/4 cups raw sesame seeds
1 cup raw hulled sunflower seeds
1 cup raw pumpkin seeds
a handful or so, of hemp, chia or flax seed
2 oz. of shredded cheddar or parm--about 2/3 cup
1 tbsp. psyllium powder (optional)
1/2 cup water
2 eggs
1/4-1/2 tsp salt.
Mix seeds. Whip eggs and add water and salt. Add to seeds and mix thoroughly. Line a LARGE pan with parchment paper. Pour in seed mixture and spread to about 1/8 inch thickness. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and cut crackers to desired sized. Lower oven temp to 275 degrees and bake for 40-60 minutes more. You want the crackers to be dry. Store in an air tight tin.

Sourdough discard crackers https://www.feastingathome.com/sourd...MhPEBsLSwWXcZU

Easier still: https://www.butterforall.com/traditi...J3MQSMT2Qtm4kE

For either, you can adjust the herbs to your liking. Garlic, sea salt, parmesan, everything bagel, etc. I don't really have discard, only keep 20-25 g starter in the refrigerator - but do sometimes make extra starter specifically so I can make one of the many discard recipes, lol.

I had a cookbook eons ago that had a cracker recipe in the very back. I think it was a Better Homes & Garden's cookbook but don't quote me on that.

I remember making them the kids and I thought they were really good.

I found this just now through a search. It looks very close to the recipe I spoke of in my previous post. I will have to try them soon. Maybe a half batch since I am not suppose to be eating such things on my diet.

Tanks Peaceandjoy, Iceblossom. All of those look easy and doable for me.
