Homemade crackers

Skip the store-bought crackers and make your own at home with this tasty recipe. 



  • 1 cup (130 g) flour
  • 1/2 cup (70 g) whole wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon (4 g) sugar
  • 1 teaspoon (4 g) kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) water
  • 3 tablespoons (45 mL) olive oil
  • Flaky sea salt, to garnish
  • Seeds, chopped nuts, and/or chopped woody or dry herbs


  1. Heat your oven to 400º F.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together the flour, sugar, salt, and pepper. Add in the water and oil and stir into a dough. Turn the dough out onto your counter and knead lightly just to bring it together. TIP: Whole wheat flour can be substituted with other whole grain flour or even more all-purpose flour.
  3. Place the dough on a piece of parchment paper and roll it out to about eight of an inch thick. Transfer the parchment and dough to a baking sheet. Dampen your hands lightly with water and rub the top of the dough with your hands. Scatter with flaky sea salt and any seeds, nuts, and/or herbs you’d like, pressing down to adhere. Lightly score the surface, if desired (this will make for cleaner breaks after baking).
  4. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown and very crisp. Allow the cracker to cool completely before breaking it up into pieces. Serve and enjoy!
