I’ve been on a homemade cooking kick lately. Probably because I’ve read more and more about some of the horrible things that are put into our processed foods. I picked up a box of wheat thins and couldn’t pronounce half of the ingredients on the list.
So, I decided to try making my own.
I took bits and pieces from different recipes I found online and came up with these.
I think they are delicious. And my toddler kept running back to me asking for more crackers. So much better than store bought.
Homemade Honey Wheat Thins Crackers
Homemade wheat thins – better than boxed.
- 1 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
- 1/2 tsp sea salt, plus extra for sprinkling
- 1/4 tsp paprika
- 5 tbsp organic butter, cold and cubed
- 2 tbsp raw honey
- 1/4 tsp white vinegar
- 1/4 cup water
- 1/4 tsp pure vanilla
- In a large bowl combine the wheat flour, salt and paprika. Use a whisk to mix together.
- Using a fork, knife, or your hands, mix in the butter until the mixture is similar to coarse sand.
- Add the honey and vinegar and stir well.
- Combine the water and vanilla in a small dish or cup.
- Slowly pour the water into the dough while stirring, just until the dough starts coming together. You may need more or less water. I needed a little more.
- Dust a work surface with flour and knead lightly.
- Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 10-20 minutes.
- Preheat oven to 400.
- Prepare a piece of parchment paper to fit your pan and dust with flour.
- Roll dough until thin. The thinner the crispier!
- Cut with a pizza cutter.
- Sprinkle with salt and place in oven.
- Cook 7-10 minutes until crispy to your liking.
Mine made about 80 inch squared crackers, but I had to throw out some of the outer edges that were rolled too thin and burnt.
Let me know what you think if you try them!
