Whole Grain Sesame Crackers…

These are really simple to make…5 minutes to mix the dough and 15 minutes to bake them. And they are a really tasty and healthy treat with a long shelf life (but they’ll disappear pretty quickly). Anyhow, if you are in the mood for something a little different to make but still easy at the same time, this may be it. Use them to scoop up hummus or other delectable, or eat them on their own, they’re worth the effort.

Whole Grain Sesame Crackers

Makes about 3 dozen crackers


1 cup whole wheat flour

¼ cup all-purpose flour

½ teaspoon kosher salt

5 tablespoons olive oil

½ cup toasted sesame seeds

5 tablespoons water


Preheat an oven to 350F. Combine the whole wheat flour, all-purpose flour, salt, and oil in the bowl of a food processor and process for a few seconds, until it resembles coarse meal. Add the sesame seeds and water and process for about 30 seconds, or until the dough forms a ball. Transfer the dough to a lightly floured surface and roll out very thin. Cut the crackers into whatever shapes you like and transfer them to a baking sheet that has been lightly oiled. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until they begin to brown at the edges. Transfer the crackers to a wire rack and cool for 10 minutes before serving. They will keep for about a week in an airtight container at room temperature.
