Flavorful Homemade Cracker Recipe

These homemade crackers get their flavor from rolled oats, rosemary, and a dash of salt all baked up together. The low heat toasts everything perfectly so all the flavors shine through.

Change Up This Recipe

You know me by now if you don’t like or don’t have access to an ingredient that gives you the flavor, change it up! I wouldn’t switch out the rolled oats because that’s the base but that rosemary is just there flavor, swap it out!

Flavoring for Homemade Crackers

If you don’t have rosemary that is just fine, you can add a pinch of something else to give it some kick. Need some ideas?

  • garlic powder
  • Italian Seasonings
  • cracked black pepper
  • grated (not shredded) parmesan
  • onion powder
  • thyme
  • dill and onion powder will give you a ranch flavor
  • or you could go ALL OUT and use the flavor combo from THE Crackers recipe, you can’t go wrong there

Dry or powdered ingredients work best because they don’t add extra moisture to these crackers. And let me tell you, homemade crackers are fine with JUST salt.

Rolling these out

I used a rolling pin with little guides on the ends to keep it from getting too thin. It was set to 1/4 of an inch, then I took those off and gave it a couple of final rolls to get it a bit thinner.

If you’re going for cut crackers, start with a rectangle of dough. Then it’s easier to roll it out in a shape that will lend itself to square or rectangle crackers.

Once it’s roughly a 1/4 of an inch thick you can use a pizza wheel to score it to whatever size crackers you want.

If you’d rather just make rustic crackers you do that too! Just leave the rolled out dough full, then break it up once it’s cooled. It’s very easy to break up if left whole.

What to serve with Homemade Crackers?

EVERYTHING! You could go for cheese or meats, but in my opinion, these are screaming for an Olive or Red Pepper Tapenade. All the nooks and crannies of these crackers make them perfect for ANY dip.

  1. What oven temp should I use for these crackers? All mixed up and ready to go. I set it at 350 but want to make sure. Thanks
