Crackers Recipe

This is the recipe for zero waste homemade crackers that I have been making lately. They are really simple, crunchy and great with dips. I have been using rosemary but really you could put any fresh herbs in like thyme, parsley, chives, dill, coriander, whatever you have on hand.

  • 1 & 1/2 cups Plain Flour (The Green Heart Grocer's baking flour is perfect or substitute it for Spelt as a low Gluten cracker)
  • 2t fresh herbs e.g. rosemary
  • 2T Olive Oil (I use The Green Heart Grocer's Extra Virgin Organic Olive Oil)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • Optional: salt & pepper
  1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees celsius (fan forced).
  2. In a food processor place all ingredients except water and pulse. About 10 seconds.
  3. Add water and pulse till a dough forms. Another 10 seconds.
  4. Remove the dough and press into a ball. Divide this into 4 and let it sit for 10 minutes. This takes away the dough's elasticity! 
  5. Lightly flour a surface and rolling pin and roll as thin as possible.
  6. Peel the dough off the surface and place in on a lined baking tray.
  7. Use a pizza cutter to cut into cracker size pieces.
  8. Bake for 5 minutes, then flip and bake for another 3-5 minutes depending on your oven. Keep a close eye on them so they don't burn. (The Plain Flour crackers will puff up, the Spelt version just a little)
  9. Leave them to completely cool and then store in an airtight container:)
