Quick Basic Whole Wheat Cracker



Eating whole grains provides more nutrients and more fiber, plus they're more filling. These are beneficial to overall health and weight control. Cracker goes well with tea, eat it at snack time, on the go, in morning or just before bedtime. Relish these delicious crackers

Here's one simple basic recipe. Later you can experiment with different whole-grain flours, mixing them together and or adding nuts and seeds with many more options.

Ingredients:

1/2 cup plus 2 tbsp milk
2 tbsp oil or butter
(I used olive oil)
1 tbsp brown suger(Optional)
1 cups 100% whole wheat flour(plus more for dusting)
2 tsp cardamom and or ajwain seeds and or cumin seeds(crushed)
1/2 tsp baking powder
salt to taste



Method:

1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper or grease well and dust with some flour; set aside.

2. In a large bowl, whisk together milk and oil; add flours, salt and baking powder and mix together with your hands until just combined making a pliable dough.

3. Make medium size dough balls about 4-5. Roll out on floured surface into circle or square. Cut into your desired shape using cookie cutter or just knife. Transfer to one of the prepared baking sheets, spacing crackers about 1/2 inch apart. Repeat process with remaining dough and baking sheet.

4. Prick crackers all over with a fork(optional).

5. Bake, rotating baking sheets halfway through, until golden brown, just crisp and fragrant, 15 to 18 minutes. 

6. Set aside to let cool completely before serving. Store cooled crackers in an airtight container.


Note:
1. Use soy milk or almond milk to make vegan crackers.
2. Cracker taste fresh upto 1 week when stored in an airtight container.
3. I like cracker slightly sweet so I used brown sugar this is totally optional.
