Crunchy, Good for you Crackers
3 cups rolled oats
2 cups spelt or whole wheat pastry flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup water
1 cup wheat germ
1 Tablespoon Brown sugar
2/3 cup vegetable oil
caraway or sesame seeds (enough to sprinkle on top)
Mix dry ingredients (except seeds) well in large bowl. In small bowl or pint measure, mix water and oil with a whisk of fork to
emulsify. Slowly pour liquid mixture into the dry mix and stir, then knead lightly and divide dough in half.
Spray cookie sheets with Pam. Roll out each half with rolling pin to cover a large cookie sheet. If you like the crackers thinner, the leftover dough goes into a greased, glass pie pan for baking later; maybe as a tofu quiche crust.
Sprinkle lightly with salt (in addition to salt in recipe) and with sesame seed. Roll lightly again and then mark squares with pastry wheel to desired size.
Place one sheet at a time in a pre-heated 400 degree Fahrenheit oven, then immediately turn oven down to 350 and bake for 25 minutes. After 25 min. Turn oven off, but leave crackers in for another 5 or 10 minutes. Watch carefully as they burn easily.
