Satisfy your salt cravings with these perfect homemade spelt crackers. This recipe is easy peasy and can easily be modified in almost any way. Feel free to add some grated cheese to the batter or you can replace a small portion of the flour with some seeds. They are satisfying enough to eat plain but also team very well with any dip and wine. They also make a good appetizer!
- 1 1/2 cup spelt flour (185 g)
- 1/2 cup water
- 3 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tsp sugar
- 11/2 tsp sea salt
- 3 tsp fresh herbs, chopped (I used oregano, thyme and chives, you can also use dried herbs)
- 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
- Optional: 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- Optional topping: sesame seeds
- Heat the oven to 450°F / 230°C.
- In a medium bowl, mix together flour, sugar, sea sat, black pepper, chopped herbs and garlic powder if using.
- Add the oil and water to the flour mixture. Stir until a soft, sticky dough is formed. If needed, begin adding more flour, one teaspoon at a time (I added only 1 tsp). With your hands, gently press dough to form a ball. Let it rest for 10 minutes.
- Divide the dough into two halves and set one half aside.
- Place the other half on top of parchment paper. Sprinkle it with a little bit of flour. Roll your dough into a rectangle roughly 1/8-inch thick or thinner.
- Brush the surface of the dough very lightly with water. Sprinkle sesame seeds evenly over the surface of the dough.
- Transfer the dough on the parchment paper to a baking sheet. Using a pizza cutter or a sharp knife, cut the dough into individual crackers.
- Bake the crackers in the oven for 12-15 minutes, until the edges are browned.
