Homemade crackers are even more crisp, delicious and healthy than store-bought. Be creative with the flavours: substitute different herbs or other hard cheeses. Serve these crackers, which are packed with protein and essential fats, on their own, or with cheese and a dollop of pepper jelly.
"Nutrient dense crackers packed with protein and essential fats! A perfect afternoon snack or appetizer," Erika Weissenborn B.Sc. FNH, CHN
Makes - about 80
- 1 cup (250 mL/185 g) Skinny B cereal ground in a coffee grinder
- 1/2 cup (120 mL) shredded Parmesan cheese
- 1/2 T. (7.5 mL) of chopped fresh rosemary
- 2 large eggs
- Salt for sprinkling on crackers
- Preheat the oven to 350F (175C). Have ready 3 or 4 baking sheets and a roll of parchment paper.
- In a large bowl, mix together all the ingredients, except the salt, and let sit for 5 minutes. The dough will be stiff.
- Divide the dough into 3 or 4 pieces. Cut 2 pieces of parchment paper big enough to cover the baking sheet. Place a piece of dough on top of the first piece of parchment, cover it with the second piece of parchment and transfer to a cutting board. Using a rolling pin, roll the dough into a rectangle the size of your baking sheet. Remove the top layer of parchment, leaving the dough sitting on the bottom piece of parchment, and, with a sharp knife, score the dough into 1½- to 2-in (4- to 5-cm) squares.
- Slide the parchment with the dough onto a baking sheet, sprinkle with salt and bake for 10 minutes (or a few minutes longer if you prefer a crispier cracker).
- Remove the partially cooked dough from the oven, and wearing oven mitts, place a wooden cutting board on top of the baking sheet and invert both the baking sheet and the board together so the dough is transferred to the board.
- Line the baking sheet with a new sheet of parchment. Peel off and discard the top piece of parchment, and slide the dough from the cutting board back onto the new sheet. Bake for another 3 minutes.
- Allow to cool on the counter for 5 minutes, then break into individual crackers along score lines.
- Repeat with the remaining dough. These crackers will keep in an airtight container at room temperature for 1 week.
