Made these for my daughter one day. She likes them more than store-bought ones, and I like knowing what she's eating.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a baking sheet.

  • Place the rolled oats into a blender or the work bowl of a food processor, and pulse several times to grind them into coarse flour. Stir the oat flour together with whole wheat flour, salt, sugar, and cinnamon in a bowl. Pour in the water and olive oil, and mix to form a soft dough. Place the dough onto the prepared baking sheet, and roll out 1/8-inch thick. Using a knife, partially slice through the dough in desired shapes.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until just barely brown, 10 to 15 minutes. Watch carefully, as they burn easily. Allow to cool completely on baking sheet before breaking along score lines into individual crackers.

Cook's Note

The cinnamon can easily be replaced with many different seasonings to make different flavors. Some of the different types I've tried: garlic parmesan; regular salt; and garlic pepper.

This is a good base recipe but really needs some help in the flavor department. The cinnamon smelled good in the dough but was undetectable in the finsihed product. You will need a large baking sheet for this recipe. Since this is rolled out on the sheet it's best to use one without sides to allow room for the rolling pin. I may try a savory version of these using parm and garlic. Read More

Really liked these! I did modify the recipe a bit by decreasing the oil to 2 T and using homemade applesauce in place of the other 3 T. Read More

This recipe is really easy and the crackers are yummy. I plan on making them again and moving more toward the sweet side. Read More

Tastes just like (thicker) Wheat Thins and much cheaper. I'd suggest you sprinkle some more salt on before you bake or put a little more salt in the recipe--just a little--to make it tastier. Read More

I made these today (thanksgiving) when I realized that I had forgotten to pick some up at the store. I used cracked black pepper instead of cinnamon and used cookie cutters shaped like a turkey instead of just rolling them out. I like them but next time I will probably double the amount of spice I used but all in all a good basic recipe to add onto. I will probably share this with a friend who just had a baby would be a much cheaper alternative to brand name baby biscuits and crackers if you leave out the spice. Read More

I hate to say it but I thought these were so bland. I did herbs and Parmesan cheese but even my 1 year old wouldn't eat them. Too bad they looked healthy. Read More

Added a tsp of vanilla substituted in 1/4 cup applesauce for half the water and substituted honey for white sugar. This makes a nice slightly sweet cracker but is not truly sweet like a cookie. I rolled all of the dough out in a 10x15 inch pan and cut lines every inch going both directions to make 1 inch squares. This seemed to be just about the right thickness and easy to break into tiny crackers. Baked 15 minutes until crispy but in retrospect I think they might have been better a little softer. My 1 year old likes them a lot. We use them as rewards for potty-training. Read More
