Wheat and flax seeds cheese crackers

Healthy crackers made with whole wheat and flax seeds meal. I just loved the way these turned out! Loved the nuttiness from the flax, whereas cheese and pepper made these extra delicious. I wanted to bake something similar to cream cracker as my hubby likes them and he wanted me to bake something like that. But I ended up with this recipe, it is not like cream cracker but it sure tastes great. Can be enjoyed with a dip or as it is.

Ingredients

  • Whole wheat 3/4 cup
  • Organic flax seeds meal 1/4 cup
  • Cheddar cheese 25 g or 1 cheese cube (room temperature) 
  • Cold butter 1 tablespoon 
  • Milk 2-3 tablespoon approximately or a required 
  • Sugar 1 teaspoon
  • Salt 1/4 teaspoon
  • Freshly ground black pepper 1 teaspoon 

Method

  1. Mix the whole wheat flour, flax meal, Salt, pepper and sugar. 
  2. Take butter and rub it to the flour mix till it resembles like sand. Add grated cheese to it and mix. 
  3. Add a tablespoon of milk at a time to bring the dough together, do not knead. Form a soft dough. 
  4. Keep it covered for 10 minutes. Roll it very thin between two butter paper or parchment sheet. Cut using a cookie cutter or with a knife. Place the cookies on a parchment lined baking tray and prick them with a fork. Pricking prevents the crackers to puff up while baking. 
  5. Bake in a preheated oven at 180 degrees for 10-15 minutes. 

    Notes 

    • Use coarsely ground flax seeds, don’t grind it too fine. Flax will release it’s oil if ground too much. 
    • Do not over bake them. Keep an eye on them after 10 minutes. 
    • Time and temperature as per your oven. 
    • The time will depend upon the thickness of the cracker. Roll them thin for crispy crackers. 
    • Stays good for a week when stored in air right container.
