Homemade Whole Wheat Crackers

Homemade Whole Wheat Crackers Post

 

My kids love all kinds of crackers, you name it, they love them.

For years we would go through a box or two a week as they snacked on them.  When we started our Real Food Journey I realized that I had to find a replacement for the overly processed crackers. The ingredients list on those crackers definitely didn’t meet my standards for real food.

Based on our old way of thinking I thought I was actually feeding them something healthy because they were whole wheat!! Ha! Ha! They were barely whole wheat and so full of words I couldn’t pronounce!!

When we switched to real food I stopped buying them and all I heard was complaints about how hungry they were and that the fruit and veggies were not filling enough. They wanted something crunchy to snack on.

We started having popcorn and rice cakes but I needed to add variety to their snack menu. I wanted to find a whole wheat cracker version that would be healthier.

I began my search with a healthy version of saltines. I looked online, but came up with only a few options. There were whole wheat cheese crackers and wheat thins. I tried making those and they were good, but not easy enough to make.

Sorry, I am busy and I can’t spend all day in the kitchen, so I needed a fast homemade whole wheat cracker that tasted good. I really came up empty handed with my search I couldn’t find a homemade whole wheat cracker that I liked.

I found one recipe that I liked but it called for white flour.  I ended up adapting it to see what it tasted like. I have had to tweak the recipe here and there to make it work just right but I finally got the best homemade whole wheat cracker recipe out there!!! They are so yummy!!!
My family loves them so much that I make them once a week and sometimes twice.

Don’t get overwhelmed! These homemade whole wheat crackers are so easy to make! I can have the dough made in less than 5 minutes and have the first batch in the oven in 10 minutes!!!

You have got to try these!! It only takes an extra 15 minutes out of your day and while they cook you can get other things done. It has just become part of my weekly routine to make these homemade whole wheat crackers.

I hope you will give them a try, I promise you won’t be disappointed and you will never buy a boxed cracker from the store again!! They also taste great with a little cottage cheese on them. MMMM….so good!!! I hope you enjoy these homemade whole wheat crackers as much as we do!!

Happy Baking!!
