The first time I tried these sprouted whole grain crackers, I fell in love with them. I got them from To Your Health Sprouted Flour Co. They’ve recently stopped making them, so I asked the owner, Peggy, for the recipe, and she was kind enough to give it to me. I modified the recipe slightly by adding coconut oil. (It’s so good for you, I try to get it into everything I can!)
These crackers are wonderfully crisp and have a pleasing crunch. The words “sprouted” and “whole grain” makes them sound like a bland health food (along the lines of tofu or bean sprouts) but au contraire, these crackers are really delicious. They taste like fancy store-bought gourmet crackers to me.
These crackers are very healthy. The phytic acid is most flours blocks minerals and this causes nutrient deficiencies which can lead to osteoporosis, cavities, and other health problems. Since the flour in this recipe is sprouted, the phytic acid is greatly reduced. It is also whole wheat flour, which means it is much more nutritious than refined flour. They’re also chock-full of healthy grass-fed butter and coconut oil.
They makes great portable food for toddlers or kids on the go — or for picnics. Add some cheese, some hummus, salami, liverwurst or smoked salmon — and you have a healthy meal or snack.
