DIY Saltines

So, plain soda crackers aren't the most healthy recipe if you make them with all white flour, but at least with this homemade recipe there are no preservatives, and they taste way better than store bought saltines. Just like our homemade wheat thins, the only problem with them is they disappear way too fast around here.

Homemade Soda Cracker Recipe

  • 3 cups flour (you can use part whole wheat if you want)
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/4 cup oil
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • Salt for sprinkling on top (sea salt is great)
  • Additional herbs like oregano, basil, or thyme can also be sprinkled on top for a unique flavor (optional)
  1. Mix all ingredients until well combined. If dough is too sticky you may need to add extra flour. 
  2. Roll dough out on a lightly floured or lightly oiled surface until about 1/8 inch thick. You can either roll it out on a counter and transfer it in a large piece to an oiled cookie sheet, or you can roll it directly onto an oiled cookie sheet.
  3. Once on the cookie sheet, sprinkle with salt (and any extra herbs) and roll lightly to press salt in.
  4. Gently cut the crackers to size using a pizza cutter or knife.
  5. Bake at 350 F for 10-20 minutes until golden brown. Let cool slightly, and then break them into individual pieces.
This is the recipe I used to make train crackers.
