crispbread


A friend of mine gave me this yeast free crispbread recipe not so long ago and I can highly recommend it, as it is easy to make. She reduced the oil content of the original recipe and said it tasted better that way – of course I take her word for it. I also reduced the salt content. My children like finding this crispbread in their snack box. If you are like I am and enjoy the occasional treat of crackers, cheese and grapes then this crispbread is excellent and of course much healthier than all those salty crackers available on the market. American readers please note: 1 dl = 100 ml, ½ cup = 125 ml.

CRISPBREAD/CRACKERS

INGREDIENTS

  • 1¾ dl spelt flour (175 ml)
  • ½ dl coarse rolled oats (50 ml)
  • ½ dl pumpkin seeds
  • ½ dl flaxseeds/linseeds
  • ½ dl sesame seeds
  • ½ dl sunflower seeds
  • ½-¾ teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1 dl water
  • 2 tablespoons (30 ml) quality vegetable oil

METHOD

  1. In a large bowl, blend all the ingredients using a spoon or a spatula. The dough will be wet and a bit sticky
  2. Line a baking sheet with baking parchment. To spread the dough over the parchment you put another baking parchment on top of it and roll it out with a rolling pin. If you need to, simply use your fingers to even the edges out. You can also leave them rough
  3. Slice the dough into rectangles (I use a pizza cutter and I tend to make rather small slices) and then pierce the surface of each slice with holes, using a fork or a skewer
  4. Place in the oven and allow to bake for 15-20 minutes at 200°C/400°F/gas mark 6 (please note that my oven is fan assisted) depending on how dark and crisp you want the slices (I bake it for 20 minutes)
  5. Allow the crispbread to cool and then store it in an airtight container
