Amazingly crisp, savory and delightful crackers that are easy to make at home!
Ingredients
  • 2 cups flour–I use 1 cup Einkorn flour (see Kate's Tips below) and 1 cup sprouted spelt flour
  • 2 tsp. baking soda
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 2 cups buttermilk–It's easy to make your own. See Kate's Tips below :)
  • ¼ cup coconut or brown sugar
  • ¼ cup honey or maple syrup
  • ½ cup roasted pumpkin seeds or sunflower seeds
  • ¼ cup sesame seeds
  • ¼ cup whole flax seeds
  • 1 Tbsp. chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1 cup dried fruit (I used dried cherries & figs)
  • ½ cup nuts (I used pistachios)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350° F.
  2. Stir together the flours, baking soda and salt in a large bowl.
  3. Add the buttermilk, coconut sugar and honey and stir several times.
  4. Add the dried fruit, nuts, pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds, flax seed and rosemary and stir just until blended.
  5. Pour the batter into two greased loaf pans or 6 mini loaf pans if you have them. Bake for about 35 minutes, until golden and springs back when touched. Remove from the pans and cool completely.
  6. Wrap the bread tightly in plastic wrap and freeze until firm. Slice as thin as you can, between ¼ and ⅛ inch and place slices on an ungreased cookie sheet.
  7. Preheat oven to 325° F. and bake about 15-20 minutes. Flip slices over and bake 15-20 minutes more. Each cracker should feel crisp and be golden brown. If not give it a few more minutes.
  8. Cool and store in an airtight container.
