Have you ever looked at the nutrition label on your favorite snack crackers? Many of them contain way more sodium than should be in a heart-healthy snack (around 150 mg of sodium). Additionally, many snack crackers are made with refined white flour, hydrogenated oils, and a laundry list of artificial ingredients.

Make a healthier switch when it comes to snacking by making your own crackers. They are much easier to make than you would think. These whole wheat rosemary crackers are made up of just a few simple ingredients, including whole grain wheat flour, fiber-rich wheat bran, eggs, and heart-healthy olive oil. Just 30 minutes and a handful of ingredients is all you need to make these healthy and delicious snack crackers.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup white whole wheat flour
  • 1 tablespoon wheat bran
  • 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon dried rosemary
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper

Preparation

  1. Heat oven to 350F
  2. In a bowl, mix together flour, wheat bran and flaxseed
  3. Add egg and oil. Mix until a dough forms
  4. Turn out dough and roll between two sheets of parchment
  5. Sprinkle dough with rosemary and pepper. Press lightly into dough
  6. Cut dough into 1 1/2-inch squares. Transfer parchment with dough onto a baking sheet
  7. Bake 20-25 minutes or until lightly golden. Cool.

Ingredient Variations and Substitutions

Use fresh rosemary in place of dried, if you have it.

You can also experiment with different spices and seasonings to make these crackers fit your taste or to lower the sodium.

Cooking and Serving Tips

Watch crackers carefully at the end. You want them to get crisp and golden, but not too brown. They will firm up a bit as they cool.

A pizza cutter makes it easy to cut straight lines in the dough.

These crackers go well with hummus, veggie dips, or on their own.
