Basic Whole Wheat Cracker Recipe
1 1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
2 tablespoons oil (your choice, I use extra virgin olive oil)
4 tablespoons of water
Mix together the flour and salt. Add the oil and knead mixture together by hand. Add enough water to make dough. Knead for about 5 minutes.
Spread onto oiled cooking sheet. Bake 10 to 12 minutes a 325 degrees. Let cool for one hour. Break into pieces.
Enjoy! Put them in your child's lunch or eat them as a snack with a healthy piece of fruit; you'll be good to go!
