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


    • 4 teaspoons flaxseeds
    • 3 teaspoons sesame seeds
    • 3 teaspoons poppy seeds
    • 2 teaspoons fennel seeds
    • 1¾ cups whole wheat flour
    • 1½ cups all-purpose flour
    • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
    • 1/3 cup olive oil
    • 1 cup water
    • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
    • All-purpose flour, for rolling the dough
    • Olive oil, for brushing over the dough


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.

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