What is it about crackers?

They are everywhere, from kids’ lunch boxes to high-end artisanal markets.  I regularly spend a pretty penny on “flatbreads” that are, essentially, just regular old crackers. 

Who knew, though, that you can save some of those pennies by making them at home? 

Well, ok, I did [1].

But this is another lovely little variation on flatbread crackers.  The roasted peppers add a much-needed dose of color — make your own, or use them from a can, well drained.  Either way, these couldn’t be easier. 

Finally, I am newly smitten with white whole wheat flour.  This amazing product has the health benefits of whole wheat flour with the taste and texture of white, all-purpose flour.  I love finding ways to sneak healthier ingredients into my recipes, and it’s is one of my favorite little tricks.

Roasted Pepper Crackers

1 cup white whole wheat flour
1/4 cup roasted red peppers, chopped
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup olive oil
Sea salt

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.

Stir together flour, peppers, baking powder, and salt. Add water and oil and stir until the dough forms a ball. Knead dough a few times until malleable.

Roll the dough out on a lightly floured surface, about 1/4″ inch thick.  Cut the dough into small cracker-sized pieces, pulling gently to separate.  Sprinkle the tops of the crackers with sea salt, and transfer them onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.  Bake the crackers for 8 to 10 minutes, and allow to cool.
