Join me in taking your charcuterie boards to the next level by making these unbelievable, simple & homemade Flax Seed Crackers! Plus, we all know how expensive crackers can get…so, DUH, Go Homemade!
2 C Flour
1/4 C Olive Oil
1/2 C Water
Good Pinch of Salt
3 Tbsp Flax Seeds or any seed you wish to substitute
Dump flour on your cleaned counter and season with a good pinch of salt all over.
Make a well in the flour and add your oil in. Using your fingers mix the oil with the flour to spread the fat throughout, which will help create a crispier cracker. Next add your water in little splashes all while mixing and kneading until you have a soft and smooth dough as seen above. Let rest in cling film for about 10-15 minutes.
4. Using an unfloured surface begin rolling and stretching bits of the dough out on the counter. If you want, you can make uniform shapes, but I rather like making big pieces and cracking it after baking to make awesome cracker shards! Use the counter to stick your dough too (don’t worry it will peel off), but this allows you to stretch out the dough to a very thin size. Let it relax on the counter while you preheat the oven to 425F with a cast iron pan/baking stone in the oven or using a sheet pan to transfer the dough in and out.
5. Place the rolled out dough onto the preheated cast iron and bake for approximately 3 minutes per side until golden brown and crispy. It will bubble up nicely!
6. Enjoy with cheese, dips, pickles, olives and spreads or entirely on their own! I guarantee you won’t be buying many more crackers after this. Store in an airtight container or tied off bag in a dry cupboard for 1-2 weeks, but goodluck lol!
