Thank you so much for the inspiration and sharing your original recipe of the Lavash Flatbreads. We modified this recipe to an even healthier organic rendition producing another delicious cracker to add to our healthy cracker arsenal. Removing the salt in the recipe we reduce the sodium and replace it with lemon juice which is helpful and not harmful to blood pressure, and those watching their sodium intake or instructed by a doctor to eat less salt. We also improved the recipe by adding whole grain flour with the wheat flour. The flour we used brought whole grains to the recipe, the extra virgin cold pressed olive oil brought healthy fats with purified water. This seemed to make a stronger more sophisticated cracker that could have been served somewhere fancy.
Organic Lemon Sesame Whole Wheat Crackers
Whole Grain Cracker Recipe
Yields: 20-30 crackers
Time: 80 Minutes proofing dough & 10 Minutes cooking
(6 Item Recipe)
• 1 1/2 Cups Organic Whole Wheat Flour
•1/2 Teaspoon Organic Lemon Juice
• ½ tsp Non Aluminum Baking Powder
• 1 1/2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil & Extra for glazing, cold pressed
• 1/3 – 1/2 Cup Purified warm water, just enough to form a soft bread dough
• Sesame Seeds for a great topping incorporating a nutty taste to the cracker
You can also top the cracker with a light sprinkle of sea salt (optional)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a bowl mix together flour, salt, yeast, olive oil and water. If you need a dash more water, to get the right consistency go ahead and add it. Knead dough until dough is smooth. Roll risen dough until extremely thin, 1 millimeter. Cut into rectangles, glaze with olive oil and sprinkle with sesame seeds, if you are adding any sea salt as a topping add it when you add salt. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden.
Tips to Note:
Separating the dough into 2 balls, rolling each separately very thin is best.
This made nice, crispy crackers.
When adding the water, be sure to add it slowly.
Too much water will make the dough sticky.

You can also split the whole wheat flour with barley flour or oat flour for a healthier cracker. You can also add sunflower seeds that are chopped to the mix for a nuttier flat bread cracker.
