Wholewheat ( wholemeal) oaty crackers !

Made n Enjoyed
Hello readers,

Lately, I've got a lot into healthy eating. It's now constantly in my mind: 5 a day, lots of exercise, lots of water...
I really look forward to going for walks in the park and going to my local gym.  However, I do have to live with the constant pain in my leg muscles! Ah well, I guess they are a constant reminder of my hard work when I'm about to reach for some sugary or fatty food!



To make sure that I can still enjoy eating all of my favourite foods without too much of the fat and sugar, I had a go at making these crackers. They are packed with wholeweat flour and oats which contribute to my recommended daily intake of fiber. The addition of oats to these crackers also helps with my blood sugar. This keeps up my energy for much longer and helps to make me feel fuller for longer.



The crackers have a delicate taste. Because of the small amount of sugar added, the crackers are very distinctly sweet and savoury at the same time. The crumbly texture gives these crackers a melt in the mouth feel (sorry for the cliche) making you feel as if you are indulging in something very special.

The crackers are so amazingly easy to make that anyone with less time on their hands (I wish I could say the same for myself ;) ) can make these crackers. They keep well too as long as they are in an airtight container. Never again am I going to feel guilty about what I put into my mouth.



You will need :-
  • 175 g wholemeal ( wholewheat) flour
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 50 g ground oats
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 75 g butter
  • 3-4 tbsp skimmed milk

Method:-
Preheat the oven to gas mark 5, 190C/375F.
Put all the ingredients into a food processors 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.
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.

The greatest good you can do for another, is not just share your riches, but reveal to them their own.
