Since I’ve stopped eating wheat, I’ve had such a hard time finding crackers to eat. Gluten Free crackers are really expensive. And the taste leaves a lot to be desired. Most are also lacking in nutrition. So I’ve been researching how to make my own crackers.
I’ve been making GF Oat Crackers lately. To insure they are gluten free, use gluten free oatmeal to make your oat flour. Or purchase GF oat flour. I find it just as easy to make my own. It’s so simple. Place oatmeal in blender. Blend until the flour is the consistency you want. It just takes a few minutes. I then put my oat flour in a canning jar for the next time I’m baking.
These are yummy little crackers. I eat mine plain, with dips, and I’ve even eaten them with tuna fish.
(Pretend there is a picture here. lol I forgot to take pictures the last time I made them. I wanted to share now instead of waiting to make them again. I’ll post a pic later. )
Gluten Free Oat Crackers
1/2 cup gluten free all purpose flour
1/2 cup oat flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons butter
6 tablespoons water
Mix dry ingredients together. Cut in butter using a pastry blender or two knives. Add water. You want your dough to be similar in consistency to pie crust. So use more or less water as needed.
Roll dough out on GF floured surface to approximately 1/8 of an inch, or desired thickness. Transfer rolled dough to greased cookie sheet. If desired, brush top of crackers with butter and sprinkle with a little salt. Score the crackers with a pizza cutter to desired size.
Bake at 400* for 15 minutes. Cool, then break crackers on score lines. I store mine in a canning jar. Any air tight container would work.
*Tip – When your ready to transfer your dough, roll it around the rolling pin, then unroll onto the pan.
