DIY Wheat Thins

We all love this recipe for these simple crackers. They taste really similar to wheat thins but better. This is the recipe I used when I made the dinosaur crackers. The only problem with this recipe is they disappear really fast around here.

Homemade Wheat Cracker Recipe

  • 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 1/2 cups flour (you can use all whole wheat if you want)
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/4 cup oil
  • 1 tsp salt, plus 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 350F for 10-20 minutes, until golden brown. Let cool slightly, and then break into individual pieces.
These crackers are great by themselves or paired up with almost any dip.
