Last week when I posted my recipe of pink hummus (recipe click here), I mentioned that one of my favorite ways of eating it is with my homemade crackers. Many people actually have asked me the recipe for these yummy and healthy crackers. They are incredibly tasty, easy to prepare and a great snack to have at home. I added chia seeds (click here to see my recipe of strawberry jam with chia) making them even healthier.
- 1 cup (240 ml) of chickpea flour
- ½ cup (120 ml) of yellow corn flour
- 3 shallow tablespoons of chia seeds (or flax seeds)
- 80 ml of coconut oil (or olive oil or any other vegetable oil)
- 120 ml of water
- 1 tablespoon of dry oregano (optional but highly recommend - chickpea flour has a strong flavor and the crackers are much tastier if you season them)
- 1 tablespoon of garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon of salt
- 1 teaspoon of turmeric powder
- - cheesy flavor: add 2 tablespoons of nutritional yeast.
- - spicy: add 1 teaspoon of chili powder and 1 teaspoon of sweet paprika
- 1. Combine all dry ingredients in a bowl and stir well. Slowly combine the coconut oil, stirring well. Add the water and mix well with your hands and knead a few times till the dough smooths out. The dough should feel very heavy and you should be able to mold it in your hands.
- 2. Place the dough on a baking parchment (about 60 cm in diameter). No need to use any cooking spray or oil. Fold the parchment paper to cover the dough (see the picture below). With the help of a roll, open the dough, starting from the center towards the border (the roller should be used on top of the parchment paper and not in contact with the dough). Open until it is very thin, but thick enough not to break apart. If the dough breaks at the edges, mold it a little with the hand. Do not worry that the dough will stick to the paper. When you bake the crackers will slide off from the parchment paper.
- 3. With the help of a pizza cutter, cut the cracker the size you want. Bring the baking parchment with the crackers to the oven at 210 °C for about 12-15 minutes. Keep an eye on them – when you note that the crackers start sliding off and become slightly brown and dry, then they are ready.
- These crackers are much yellow compared to the ones I have with the pink hummus because I added turmeric powder.
- This time I had them with my home made vegan soft cheese.
