Homemade Sesame-Flax Crackers
Crackers Loaded With Crunch
Crunchy Crackers Made With Sesame Seeds and Flax
Crackers are a tasty snack but what to do if you don't have any of the storebought variety on hand?
You can make your own crackers using everyday ingredients. There is no real mystery to crackers. They are a quick bread of sorts, leavened and rolled out thin and then baked in the oven
I love these homemade crackers. The butter adds richness and the sesame seeds add such a pleasing crunch.

- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 1 tsp. salt
- 1-11/2 tsp. baking powder

Add Your Own Ingredients

Tasty and Healthful
This is a healthful cracker as compared to crackers made with preservatives and artificial flavorings. When you make your own, you know exactly what goes into them.
Do you use flax and sesame seeds when you make crackers?
