Healthy High Fiber Snack Crackers

Submitted by: JULIEARC

Introduction

These crackers are very high in fiber. I like to add Ginger or other spices for desired flavor or just go spice free to pick up the honey/molasses flavor when my sweet tooth is working overtime.

Number of Servings: 10

Ingredients

    1 cup Wheat Chex Cereal (ground) or whole wheat flower
    1 cup Ground Kellogg's All-Bran Cereal (to make a bran flower)
    1 cup ground 100% Natural Whole Grain oatmeal or oat flower
    2 tbsp Flax Seed Meal (ground flax)
    4 tbsp Honey
    2 tbsp Molasses, blackstrap or regular

Directions

Preheat oven to 200 F. You can have the grains and flax seeds pre ground to cut down on time. I keep all the dry ingredients already pre-mixed and in the refrigerator because I use it in muffins and other baking projects. Grind, measure and mix all the dry ingredients. Warm up the molasses and honey before adding it. This helps to mix evenly. Add water a Tbsp at a time until the dough is the consistency of pie or cookie dough. You will be rolling it out to the thickness you like (thick for more of a soft cookie texture or thinner for a crunchy cracker texture.) Put a dusting of flower on wax paper and roll the dough out. Use a pizza cutter to cut the dough into cracker squares or cookie cutter if you want them round. Place the dough on a cookie sheet and put it in preheated oven. Bake until dehydrated and crunchy. If you want a softer texture, roll the dough thicker and don’t bake as long. The baking time really depends on the thickness of the cracker dough and how much moisture you used mix the dough.
Now, if you want a spicy cracker you can add Italian spices, ground garlic, ground ginger, cinnamon or any other spice depending on what kind of cracker you need. Personally I like the ground ginger because I just LOVE ginger snaps. Hope you enjoy.
I like to divide the crackers into 10 servings and place each serving in a Ziploc Freezer bag and freeze them. This way I can just grab a bag at snack time and not just sit there and eat the whole batch in one sitting.

    I made these today to take on a trip (sometimes difficult to get enough fiber on trips!). I didn't know exactly how much water to put, so put too much, then I had to add a tad more WW flour. With all that, they still turned out quite well but I'll leave them in the oven for less time next time! - 10/1/09

    I usually put just enough water in to make it like cookie doe consistancy and that works. I'm glad you enjoy them. Thank you so much for your rating.
