View Full Version : Cracker questions
03-14-2007, 04:32 AM
Has anybody made Alissa's whole wheat crackers? I am looking for a (don't laugh too much now!) wheat thins type saltish plain cracker.
What if I omitted the spices and the flax seeds and just used sprouted wheatberry flour?
I dislike flax crackers and most spicy crackers/ breads I have tried. Why is there orange juice in this recipe? What is it's purpose?
any ideas or suggestions would be most appriciated :~)

I found the "Just Like Ritz" crackers to be a nice cracker that might approximate what you are looking for. They are crispy and crunchy, a bit salty and don't have any grain in them. They do call for 1/2 cup of ground golden flax seed, but you might get away with not using it. With that little in there, you can't really tell it is there. I think that the jell from the flax seeds probably helps to keep it together as it is very "short". If you want to go totally flax free, you might try chia seeds in place of the flax or you might try some ground sprouted grain if you like.

Tirza~ thanks for the link to the recipe. They look pretty good.
I am not opposed to a small amount of flax in my crackers. Like 1/2 cup or so.
I just don't care for the smell of alot flax dehydrating. I like flax seeds in other things thou like porridge and smoothies.
I don't want to put any veggies in the cracker either! I just want something plain to top with good things like deviled eggless spread,guac, almond butter.. that kind of stuff.
I guess oj would make it kinda sweetish. The Morning muffins in the book look like a cracker type possiblity~ minus the cinnamon and raisins.

Yes, I know what you mean about lots of veggies in the crackers. I like some of those sometimes, but I usually just want a plainer cracker base for other toppings.
I don't count the zucchini in this recipe as the same thing. It helps to achieve that plain cracker taste as well as its crispness.

Tirza~ Yea, i do see what you mean about the zuchhini, and it's such a mild veggie.
..... I just don't care for stuff like sundried tomatoes and lots of spices in my crackers I have learned :) but i love rawkinlocs garlic toast.
I saw something similar to just like ritz in RFRW too.
Thank you very much for the link. I think I may try them out.
