Eating a mostly gluten free diet I have been missing crackers. Yes I know there are lots of gluten free crackers for sale but the prices are outrageous for a little handful of crackers. Feeding a family of 6 we cannot afford to buy GF crackers. My amazing sister in law came up with this recipe from the gluten free quinoa flax sourdough starter we have.
Mix the ingredients together and let rise for 3-4 hours (or more if it is cool, up to 12 hours). When ready to work with the dough lay a large piece of parchment paper out on a cookie sheet. I like to press the dough out onto the cookie sheet and flatten it out by hand. You can also put another piece of parchment paper on top and roll out the dough with a rolling pin. The dough will be very sticky. Sprinkle flax and quinoa seeds on top of the dough to make it easier to work with. With flattened out to about 1/8-1/4 inch then coat with salt.
Bake at 350 for 15 minutes until set and then score into crackers of your preferred size.
Reduce temperature to 220 and bake another 20 minutes. Turn over and bake another 10-20 minutes until your desired consistency.
I use Bob’s Red Mill Organic Whole Flaxseed Brown, 24-Ounce Packages (Pack of 4)
and this quinoa from Vitacost (this are my affiliate links from which I will benefit if you purchase).
