This week the Meatless Monday recipe is for crisp, tasty whole wheat crackers. These crackers have a similar taste to Wheat Thins; I adapted the recipe from Kitchen Stewardship. Check out the site for the original recipe and more cooking inspiration!
Whole Wheat Crackers
1 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp. salt
4 Tbsp. butter
1/4 cup water
1 1/2 Tbsp. agave nectar
1/4 tsp. vanilla
sea salt and black pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
In a medium mixing bowl, combine flour and salt. Using a pastry blender, cut in the butter until the mixture resembles small peas.
In a cup, combine water, agave nectar and vanilla. Add liquid mixture to dry ingredients and combine just until it forms a ball of dough.
Divide the ball of dough into three sections. Sprinkle flour on a surface and rub flour on a rolling pin. Roll the dough as thin as possible. Slice dough into 1 1/2-inch pieces and poke each section with a fork.
Place the pieces of dough on a cookie sheet, and sprinkle with sea salt and black pepper. Bake at 400 degrees F for 5 to 10 minutes, checking frequently to prevent burning. Crackers will be golden brown when done. Repeat this process for the other three dough sections.
For a snack, top these crackers with cream cheese or peanut butter. Of course, they’re also perfect with soups.
Have a great week. Be well and be blessed!
