Simple Three Ingredient Cracker Recipe

I love a cracker. But purchasing those crunchy morsels plastic free is difficult. Luckily they are super easy to make, requiring only three ingredients.

The great thing with this recipe, is that it can be altered to suit you. Think of it as a base for you to go off and do whatever. I sometimes make a buckwheat and corn cracker gluten free alternative.

Simple Three Ingredient Cracker Recipe

Ingredients
1 cup of flour (any flour you want)
3 tablespoons olive oil
4 tablespoons of cold water

How to put it together
Combine flour and olive oil in a bowl. The mixture will be crumbly. Add the water 1 tablespoon at a time until you get a dough like consistency. Depending on the flour, you might not need all 4 tablespoons or you may need more. Break the dough up into four equal parts and roll out thin (around 2mm). I use a pasta machine but a rolling pin or even wine bottle will do the job.

I then cut the crackers to a desired shape, lay on a baking tray and put into the oven at 200C for 8 minutes. I'd advise putting the timer on your oven for 6 minutes to have a quick look to see how they are going as each oven is different. The crackers will be golden and crispy when done.

If you want, add spices and herbs when combining the ingredients to make the dough. Try rosemary and thyme, turmeric and pepper, nutmeg, cinnamon and sugar...really any combination that tickles the taste buds. 

The oil is not necessary at all. I have made these crackers using only flour and water. If you are omitting the oil, more water will be required. 

Once cooled, store away in a glass jar and hide from family members so they don't get gobbled up.

  3. Ooh, I tried these today. I've got some chickpea flour that I'm using. It needed some extra water to hold together and more time in the oven, although perhaps I rolled it thicker.

    1. Yum! I'll have to try making them with chickpea flour too. I'll keep in mind about the extra water too. Thanks.

  4. Yum yum yum!! I just made these and yay! Thank you Erin, they are quick and tasty and my kids love them - they were missing their old packaged crackers and these passed their 'test'!!! Love that it's so easy and I can add any flavourings I have on hand like cumin and rosemary salt... Quicker than going up to the shop and buying them and saving on the excessive packaging 👍🏽😄

    1. I'm so glad your kids loved these. They are easy enough to make that children can learn to put these together too and create all types of flavour combinations as well.

  5. My 18 month old just helped me make a stash of these- what a winning activity and you get crackers to boot! I have a question which is probably a bit daft but I'm not much of a baker- how long do you think these can keep in an airtight container? Thank you! I love not having the packaging of shop crackers, these make me so happy:)
