    These homemade crackers are wonderful with cheese, dips and more. Plus, they're packed with seeds so they're good for you!

    Preparation

    1.

    Combine the flaxseeds, sesame seeds, poppy seeds and fennel seeds in a bowl and separate in two halves, reserve one half of the seeds for topping.

    2.

    Mix the flours and 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt with half of the seeds.

    3.

    Add the olive oil and water to the dry ingredients and mix by hand until it forms a dough. Work the dough until it pulls together into a ball.

    Cover with plastic and let rest for 20-30 minutes at room temperature.

    5.

    Preheat the oven to 350º F.

    6.

    Dust a large cutting board with flour. Roll the dough to 1/8-inch thick.

    7.

    Brush the cracker with olive oil, sprinkle remaining seeds and 1 teaspoon of kosher salt over the top and gently press into the dough.

    8.

    Using a knife or pizza cutter, cut into 1-inch-by-3-inch strips.

    9.

    Place on a nonstick baking sheet (or regular baking sheet with a thin layer of oil).

    10.

    Bake for 20-22 minutes, until crackers begin to brown on the edges.
