Wheat-Flax Crackers

Apparently these crackers are good. They got a thumbs up from the whole family and my 6 year old asked me if I could sell them in a box. When that idea wasn't going to pan out he insisted I post them on "that blog with recipes for cooking" so other people could make them too.

These were my first attempt at making crackers - they were surprisingly easy and quite good!

1 1/2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup wheat germ
1/3 cup flax seed meal
1 tablespoon sugar
3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 cup water
kosher salt for sprinkling

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
2. Stir together the dry ingredients. Pour in the oil and water; mix until just combined.
3. In batches roll dough on a lightly floured surface. Roll as thin as possible - no thicker than 1/8 inch. Place dough on an ungreased baking sheet. With a knife, mark squares. With a fork, prick each cracker and then sprinkle with salt.
4. Bake for about 20 minutes, until crisp and lightly browned. Remove from baking sheet to cooling rack. Break in to individual crackers and store in an airtight container.

Next time I will try using more whole wheat flour, olive oil instead of canola and adding some garlic powder and other herbs.
