If you’re like me, you’re getting a little stir-crazy stuck at home trying to self-isolate. A good way to use a big chunk of time is by doing some baking. So today, I made crackers! I used this recipe that I found online (link here). This recipe calls for 5 different kinds of seeds (flax, sunflower, pumpkin, sesame and poppy seeds) so I figured they would be pretty tasty.
It was a simple recipe that just required to mix all the ingredients in a bowl, knead a bit then roll and cut into cracker shapes. The one change I made was substituting chia seeds for the flax seeds. Also, when I was kneading the dough, it seemed to be a little dry and crumbly, so I added about 1/2 tbsp water to give more moisture. It helped and I was able to get a nice ball of dough.
It’s important to roll the dough very thinly so that the baked crackers will be crispy. I guess I could have cut the crackers into any shapes but I chose to do a basic square (although some are a little more rustic than others 😉 ).
The baked up beautifully, in about 22 minutes, they were golden brown and very crispy. If you don’t like seeds, I wouldn’t recommend this recipe but I love them, so this was my dream cracker haha.
I had never tried to make crackers before but they were so much easier than I thought they’d be. I will definitely make these again and maybe even experiment with other seeds/seasoning.
I can’t wait to snack on these with some hummus or other dips. Yum.
How are you spending your self-isolation days? I would love to hear your ways of keeping busy!
