Whole-wheat and grains Vegan Spelt Crackers
The name, Vegan spelt crackers, might not sound appealing, you probably thinking of a tasteless cracker that is indeed high in nutritional values but lack the taste, well, these crackers have it all, crispy texture with sesame and nigella seeds on top and a Mediterranean feeling with the zaatar in the blend.
Guidelines for the vegan spelt crackers
- Make sure you are not taking the crackers out of the oven before they are completely dry, we are baking them on a low temperature of 150°c/300°F in order to get minimum color and maximum evaporation of liquids.
- About 20 minutes after baking had started, make marks on the dough in order for them to be broken easily on the mark we made, I use a pizza slicer for the marks, its easy and comfortable.
- If making 2 trays at a time like I do, work with the turbo function and rotate between the trays to ensure an even baking.
- Spread a thin layer of dough on the baking sheet, it will make the crackers crispy like a cracker should be, I use a dough scraper to make an even layer.
In a large bowl, place all the dry ingredients except the nigella seeds, add the olive oil and slowly pour the water until you reach a runny texture but not watery one, it needs to be a bit firm.
Spread the dough in a thin layer evenly using a spatula or a dough scraper.
sprinkle the nigella seeds on top.
Place the crackers back into the oven, rotate between the trays and bake for another 20 minutes. rotate the trays again, reduce temperature to 130°c/ 260°F and bake for another 10-15 minutes.
