For the past few months I've had the privilege of hanging out with a 12 year-old neighbor boy each Saturday to do some health activities. I've loved being able to teach him what I know and learn from him about making healthy changes and having a positive attitude. I am so impressed with him and his desire to be healthy! Such a big deal for a kid his age. Another thing I love about those Saturday afternoons - he loves to spend time in the kitchen! So you betcha we have made some fun things. Last week it was a version of these homemade wheat crackers. They were a hit!
Here is the recipe we used...but be sure to check out that blog. She has tons of great info on there!
Homemade Cheesy Wheat Crackers
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup oats
3 T. sesame seeds
1/4-1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp. dried basil
1 tsp. dried Italian herb mix
1/3 cup water
1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
In a food processor or blender, blend the flour, oats, seeds, salt and herbs until blended.
Then put that dry mix into a bowl and add the other ingredients until a dough forms. If you need to add a bit more olive oil to make it stay together, just add a little at a time.
After that, roll out your dough on a floured surface. Try to roll it as thin as possible without breaking the dough.
Then just cut the dough into the shape of cracker you want! We did stars. Place them on a greased or lined cookie sheet.
Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes. Then let cool - you can even transfer them to a cooling rack if you'd like. Enjoy!
