Vegan Oat Crackers

Vegan Oat Crackers topped with onion jam and cheese

Are you annoyed with how expensive crackers are?  Not Saltines and Ritz, which are lovely in their own right, but really good whole grain crackers.  As it turns out, whole grain crackers are really easy and quick to make.  Now we can fight back against our corporate cracker oppressors!

Preparation time: 10 minutes;  Baking time: 20 minutes

½ cup Old Fashioned Oats or a blend of rolled grains (I used Old Wessex Ltd’s 5 Grain Cereal)
1 cup Whole Wheat Flour
¼ cup All-purpose Flour

1/8 teaspoon Ground Pepper
¼ teaspoon Dried Parsley
¼ teaspoon Dried Basil
1/8 teaspoon Salt
5 tablespoons Olive Oil

1/2 cup Water

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and line baking sheets with parchment paper.

Combine oats, flours, pepper, parsley, basil, and salt.

Mix in the olive oil.

Slowly incorporate the water into a dough until it is no longer crumbly and easily forms into a ball.

Roll out the dough on parchment paper to about 1/8th inch thick, and cut the rolled out dough into ~1.5 inch squares.

Place the crackers on lined baking sheet.  They don’t spread, so you can put them pretty close.
Stab each once or twice with a fork because it will make you feel like a badass (it also keeps the crackers from puffing up).

Bake for 10 minutes, rotate pans, and bake for an additional 6-10 minutes.  (16-20 minutes total).

Makes approximately 36 crackers.
