Simple Three Ingredient Cracker Recipe

21 July 2016
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.
