Sprouted Wheat Crackers with Sea Salt

These sprouted wheat crackers with sea salt are a perfectly crispy snack, either plain, or topped with your favorite spread.

These sprouted wheat crackers are surprisingly easy to make too! The sprouted wheat is very soft and blends will with the butter and milk to make pretty foolproof dough.

I had some sprouted wheat flour in the freezer leftover from this sprouted wheat bread (you can also read more about sprouted wheat), so when our host this month, Sneha, announced that we would be making crackers, I couldn't wait to try making these.

These crackers were such a happy surprise! They baked up super crispy and had wheat-y and slightly buttery flavor, and were delicious on their own as a snack.

You will need these ingredients to make these crackers: 


The ingredient list for these crackers is pretty simple. All you need is butter, milk, baking powder, salt, and sprouted wheat flour. I was happy to find it in my nearest grocery store. If you can't find it locally, you can find it online from sources such as King Arthur Flour.

The two things that really helped me roll out these crackers evenly and super thin were quality parchment paper and a specialty rolling pin with these little thickness rings (affiliate link) that hold the rolling pin to just the right measurement over the dough.




I know, I know, you probably already have a rolling pin, but I have no regrets getting this rolling pin for when I want to roll out cookie dough, pie crusts, or crackers to an even thickness (or thinness!).

Check out how evenly and thinly you can roll out the dough between two pieces of parchment paper.

I just wish I could get the edges to be even and squared!

I used a pizza wheel to trim the edges and then, feeling all geometrical, cut the rolled out dough into parallelograms and rhombuses, but you can cut the dough into squares, rectangles, or even use a cookie cutter to make circles.

Fortunately, you don't have to separate the crackers after you cut them. Just place the dough, still on the parchment paper, onto a baking sheet and bake the crackers in a 375 degree F oven.

These crackers could easily be compared to Wheat Thins, except that they get their slight sweetness from the sprouted wheat rather than sugar.

Right before baking, brush the cut dough with olive oil and sprinkle with flaked sea salt. I'm in love with Fleur de Sel de Camargue. I actually still have the little cardboard container with the cork top that I brought back from my one and only trip to France. It reminds me of that wonderful trip.

Plus, the salt is like nothing else.

You can serve these crackers with spreads, cheeses, smoked salmon, or simply plain. I suggest trying them with this celery leaf pesto. The combination was so delicious.

They would also be wonderful spread with this pimento cheese.

  1. How great that you don't have to separate them before baking! When I saw the cuts, I was imagining you trying to move them and eeeek, that looked hard. I can't wait to try these with my sprouted spelt flour!

  2. Beautiful, and perfectly shaped. I can imagine how lovely they would taste with that pesto or even a chimichurri.

  4. The crackers look crisp, golden and perfect. I will definitely try them (with plain flour, if i don't get sprouted flour). And that cracker with pesto looks gorgeous!
