Marianne found this easy cracker recipe from Megan Alton’s blog Waking Up Happy. Why make your own crackers? Because they are salty and buttery, smell amazing fresh from the oven, still keep for a quite a while in a sealed container in the pantry and use REAL food ingredients with no scary additives. Plus, you generally save some “dough” when making your own!
2 cups flour – feel free to use a whole wheat, Einkhorn, Spelt, etc.
1 tsp baking powder
1 tbsp honey
1/2 tsp salt, plus some for sprinkling on top
6 tbsp cold butter, plus 2 tbsp melted for topping
2 tbsp coconut oil, melted
2/3 cup milk
Preheat oven to 400* F
Put the flour, baking powder and 1/2 tsp salt in a food processor. Pulse to combine. You can do this by hand too using knives or a pastry blender.
Add cold butter, small pieces at a time and pulse to combine.
Add honey and coconut oil and pulse to combine.
Add milk and pulse. It should start to form a ball of dough.
Divide the dough in two and roll each half out onto a separate Silpat mat or parchment paper. I used wax paper on top to prevent sticking.
Using a knife or pizza cutter score lines in the shapes you want your crackers to be. Poke holes in each cracker.
Cook in a 400* oven for 10 minutes.
When golden, take out and brush with melted butter and sprinkle with salt. Let cool and separate.
Enjoy plain or load ’em up with your favorite toppings.
