Sea salt and poppy seed crackers and award time !



Made n Enjoyed
Hello readers,

Considering that I've been so busy this month, I needed a healthy snack that I could pop into my handbag and take with me. It had to be something that didn't need to much time and effort to make.

My daughter made plain crackers not that long before (recipe here ) so we thought that adding a bit of flavour to the crackers would create a slightly different taste and texture. The addition was poppy seeds and sea salt.

The poppy seeds gave the crackers a nutty flavour and also enhanced the nutritional value of the crackers. The recipe is given a zing through the sea salt because the sea salt is a purer form of normal salt and also give a more aesthetic appeal. Because the flavour of salt is more pronounced using sea salt, less normal salt is needed in the recipe.
The crackers turned out really good and were nice and filling. Will definitely make this again!



You will need :-
  • 175 g wholemeal ( wholewheat) flour
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 50 g ground oats
  • 3-4 tbsp black poppy seeds
  • 75 g butter
  • 7-8 tbsp skimmed milk
  • Sea salt to sprinkle
Method:-
Preheat the oven to gas mark 5, 190C/375F.
Put all the ingredients into a food processors except sea salt and mix until the mixture starts to clump.
Take out on a floured surface, and gether the dough together with your hands and roll out.
Stamp out rounds with a round cookie cutter.
Sprinkle some sea salt on the cut crackers.
Place crackers on a ungreased baking sheet.
Bake 12-15 minutes or until just begenning to colour at the edges.
Leave to cool slightly, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completley.
