Plastic free crackers - best recipe out there

If you are like me, you have a savoury-tooth and love your crackers and cheese as a stop gap before dinner. The problem is that most crackers inevitably come in plastic, and sometimes several layers of plastic.

This is a recipe given to me by one of my fellow 'Plastics Anonymous' members two Plastic Free Julys ago, and they are absolutely delicious and very easy to make. It is adapted from a Wendyl Nissen recipe.

110g wholemeal flour
110g rolled oats
1 tsp salt
40g each of sunflower, sesame, linseed, pumpkin seeds
350ml warm water
2 tsp olive oil
For extra taste, add finely chopped garlic and fresh thyme

1. Heat oven to 130c. Mix all dry ingredients and add water and oil.
2. Oil a large oven tray (you may need two if small) and spread the mixture out over the trays. Spread it is as thin as you can without creating holes in the mixture. Bake for 15 mins.
3. Remove from over and cut into cracker size pieces. Put back in oven for 1.5 to 2 hours until golden.
