These are really easy to make and taste great. Any oatmeal will work that is not instant, but stone ground will give the best result. These taste great with pate or cheese.

Oat Crackers

  • 1 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 6 tbsp butter
  • 1/2 cup water
  • sea salt

Blend the rolled oats into a coarse flour then add whole wheat, baking powder, salt and sugar. Mix well then beat in butter until dough begins to form in crumbs. Slowly add water until it forms a soft dough. Place on a floured counter and knead into a ball quickly, do not overwork the dough. Cut into two pieces. Using two pieces of wax paper roll dough out very thin, flipping the paper often to eliminate wrinkles. Remove top sheet of wax paper, cut sheet of dough into desired size for crackers and place on a baking sheet. Brush with water and sprinkle on seas salt. Bake at 350 degrees until crispy, about 15-20 minutes. Repeat with other part of dough.

    This sounds like a tasty and sturdy cracker to enjoy with a rustic pate.

  6. I see bits of green in your garden. I can’t wait for spring. Beautiful crackers!

  7. Perfect – pass the cheese please!

    Once you make your own crackers and see how easy they are to make, it’s hard to justify buying them ever again. I’m sure these taste better than anything one can buy.

  9. Cheese and homemade crackers. Nice!

    What a nice little cracker you’ve got there., Greg. An oat-y “biscuit” studded with flaky salt topped with cheese on a warm patio sounds like right where I want to be!

  11. Those do look like quite a nice foundation for some extra-sharp Cheddar!
