1 cup whole wheat flour, plus more for kneading/rolling*

1 1/2 teaspoons caraway seeds (or fennel, celery seed, sesame seeds)

1/2 teaspoon coarse salt

1/2 teaspoon baking powder (optional)**

4 teaspoons olive oil

1/2 cup water


Set oven to 325ºF. Get a baking sheet ready with parchment or a Silpat

Combine flour, 1 teaspoon caraway seeds, salt, baking powder in a medium bowl. Drizzle in the oil and combine with a rubber spatula until it’s in rather small bits, with some dry flour. Add about half the water and mix. Add enough to make a dough.

Knead dough for about 2 minutes until smooth. Roll out very thin 1/4″ on floured surface. Sprinkle with the remaining 1/2 teaspoon seeds and a large pinch of salt. Gently press into the surface. Cut into squares or rectangles. Transfer to baking sheet. Bake 25 minutes until crisp. Makes about 36- 1 1/2″ crackers


*Or 1/2 cup whole wheat flour + 1/2 cup buckwheat flour

**Omit baking powder for a thinner, crisper cracker  (my preference)
