Sesame Spelt Crackers

These are the sesame spelt crackers I served with my Herb Quark Spread in a previous post. They are super easy to make and are a far healthier option than store bought crackers - having only a handful of ingredients and no preservatives or other nasties.

   Crackers are so versatile - serve them with your favourite cheese and relish, or with a tasty dip or spread!

            A light brush with olive oil and a sprinkle of rock salt makes these crackers beautifully crisp and salty.

Makes around 50 crackers

1 cup white spelt flour
1/2 cup wholemeal spelt flour
2 tbsp black sesame seeds*
2 tbsp white sesame seeds
1/4 cup olive oil + 1 tbsp extra for brushing
1/2 cup tepid water
1 tsp rock salt + 1/2 tsp for sprinkling

Pre heat oven to 180°C and line two baking trays with baking paper. Place all ingredients into a food processor and process until well combined. Divide the dough into four balls, roll each one into long thin strips (you should be able to fit two alongside each other on one tray). With a sharp knife gently score the sheets of rolled out dough into cracker sized squares. Lightly brush the dough with the extra olive oil and sprinkle with rock salt. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Keep in an airtight container for 1 week.

* Just use four tbsp of white sesame seeds if thats all you have, or poppy seeds in place of the black sesame seeds.


  1. Hi, your recipe looks awesome and can hardly wait to try it however, I can't seem to find wholemeal spelt flour, only spelt flour. Any suggestions to what I rcan eplace it with. Thanks!

    1. Hi there, I am so sorry for my late reply! I must have over looked your comment. You can use whatever spelt flour you can find, or replace the wholemeal spelt flour with regular wholemeal flour or buckwheat flour works well too. I hope that helps, thanks for your question:)

  2. Topping: also, really nice with black pepper instead of salt!
