milling mondays: four seed oat crackers

These crunchy crackers are full of nutrition and jammed packed with seeds. They are tasty and have so much more to offer than the traditional cracker. They are great by themselves or with toppings such as hummus.

Whole Wheat Four Seed Oat Crackers
3 1/3 oz. oats
3 1/3 oz. sesame seeds
3 1/3 oz. pumpkin seeds
3 1/3 oz. sunflower seeds
3 1/3 oz.  flax seeds, slightly ground
11 3/4 oz. whole wheat flour (hard wheat berries)
1 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp salt
6 3/4 oz. water
4 1/4 oz. oil of your choice

Pre-heat the oven to 395F.
If you mill your own flour, grind your hard wheat berries. I of course use my WonderMill.
Mix all the dry ingredients together.
Then add the wet ingredients to the dry mixture and mix together.
Once the dough has formed, add the dough to a prepared baking pan. If you prefer thinner crackers, divide the dough in two and spread out on two baking sheets.
Score the dough to easier cut the crackers once they are baked.
Bake for about 15 minutes.
Finish cutting the crackers with a pizza cutter. You may want to then bake them for another 5 minutes for them to fully set. Let them cool in the pan before eating.
