Homemade Honey Wheat Thins Crackers

I’ve been on a homemade cooking kick lately.  Probably because I’ve read more and more about some of the horrible things that are put into our processed foods.  I picked up a box of wheat thins and couldn’t pronounce half of the ingredients on the list.

So, I decided to try making my own.

I took bits and pieces from different recipes I found online and came up with these.

I think they are delicious.  And my toddler kept running back to me asking for more crackers.  So much better than store bought.

Homemade Honey Wheat Thins Crackers

Homemade wheat thins – better than boxed.

Ingredients:

  • 1 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt, plus extra for sprinkling
  • 1/4 tsp paprika
  • 5 tbsp organic butter, cold and cubed
  • 2 tbsp raw honey
  • 1/4 tsp white vinegar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 tsp pure vanilla

Instructions:

  1. In a large bowl combine the wheat flour, salt and paprika. Use a whisk to mix together.
  2. Using a fork, knife, or your hands, mix in the butter until the mixture is similar to coarse sand.
  3. Add the honey and vinegar and stir well.
  4. Combine the water and vanilla in a small dish or cup.
  5. Slowly pour the water into the dough while stirring, just until the dough starts coming together. You may need more or less water. I needed a little more.
  6. Dust a work surface with flour and knead lightly.
  7. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 10-20 minutes.
  8. Preheat oven to 400.
  9. Prepare a piece of parchment paper to fit your pan and dust with flour.
  10. Roll dough until thin. The thinner the crispier!
  11. Cut with a pizza cutter.
  12. Sprinkle with salt and place in oven.
  13. Cook 7-10 minutes until crispy to your liking.

Mine made about 80 inch squared crackers, but I had to throw out some of the outer edges that were rolled too thin and burnt.

My daughter is really into table foods and crackers right now so this would definitely be a great alternative to the store bought ones!
