Quick and Easy Sprouted Crackers
Delicious variations or make up your own. For extra flavor richness mix the sprouted flour with buttermilk, cover tightly and let ferment on counter overnight.
  • 5cups organic sprouted red wheat flour(organic Sprouted Sorghum Flour makes great gluten-free version)
  • 2 1/4cups organic whole buttermilk, thin yogurt, or kefir
  • 1/2 cup organic unsalted butter, melted(plus extra for greasing sheet pans)
  • 1tablespoon aluminum-free baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons sea salt
  1. Lightly butter 2 large baking sheets. Place flour and buttermilk in stand mixer and blend until slightly stiff dough forms. (For fermented crackers, place dough in bowl and tightly cover. Leave on counter overnight to add richness to the flavor. Return to stand mixer and proceed with directions.)
  2. Add melted butter, baking powder, salt, and variation ingredients (below). Blend well.
  3. Taking a fourth of the dough at a time, roll out to about 1/8 inch thickness on a floured surface. Using a knife or pizza wheel, cut crackers into squares. Place very close together on the buttered baking sheets.
  4. For DRIED crackers place in oven on lowest possible temperature (150-170°). Leave in oven all day or overnight until completely dried. Will be crispy and full of flavor.
  5. For BAKED crackers place in oven preheated to 300°. Bake until lightly browned on top, about 35-45 minutes. Reduce heat to 200° and let crackers continued to bake until completely dried and crispy (2-2 ½ hours).
