I made another batch of these cracker today and thought I should share this delicious and easy recipe. I know that I had struggled for years to find a really tasty, filling, and satisfying GF cracker so I thought I would make my own! It is easy to modify and add in different herbs, spices, garlic and to make them sweet try a little maple syrup and vanilla (this tastes like a graham cracker). It only takes 15 minutes to make the dough and cut up the little cracker squares. I like to use a pizza cutter to help make easy cuts. Don’t forget to separate the crackers before baking and prick pretty little fork holes in the top! Today I added basil, oregano, garlic and chia seeds for some extra nutrients. The oat base creates a nice wholesome flavor with added fiber and B vitamins.
Below is the recipe for Oat Crackers from The Anti-Inflammatory Kitchen Cookbook.
Active Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 45 minutes
1 ½ C oat flour (grind up 2C of oats in food processor)
1/3 C gluten free flour mix
pinch of salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
herbs of choice minced: parsley, chives, thyme, rosemary (1 Tbs total)
3 Tbs olive oil
¼ C water
1 Tbs olive oil
1. Combine oat flour, gluten free flour, salt, baking powder, herbs, olive oil and water in a bowl. Add a little extra water if dough is too dry. Knead together lightly for 1-2 minutes.
2. On a baking sheet lay down parchment paper. Drizzle 1 Tbs of olive oil on the parchment paper.
3. Place dough on parchment paper and roll out to a 1/4 inch thickness.
4. Using a pizza cutter slice into 1 and a ½ inch squares and cut off the rough edges. Separate pieces a little for baking.
5. Bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes until crispy.
*To make plain simply leave out the herbs or try adding garlic to make a nice garlicky cracker everyone will enjoy. These crackers will keep in a sealed container for about 1 week.
