Whole Grain Blue Cheese Crackers


3 1/2 C Whole Grain Flour (I used Rye ground at a course setting)
1/3 C Olive Oil
1 tsp salt
1 C water
2 Tbs Blue Cheese Powder
2 tsp Chicken Soup Base
Salt / Spices / Seeds for sprinkling

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F
  2. In a medium bowl, stir together the whole wheat flour, salt, cheese powder and soup base. Pour in the Olive oil and water; mix until just blended.
  3. On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough as thin as possible - no thicker than 1/8 inch. I used some of the leftover course Rye flour I had ground. Use a small biscuit or cookie cutter to cut into rounds. Place dough on an ungreased baking sheet. Use a fork to prick holes in the top. Sprinkle on salt, seeds or your favorite seasoning mix. I used Zapp spice blend and Chia seeds!
  4. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven, or until crisp and light brown. Baking time may be different depending on how thin your crackers are. I needed almost 20 minutes.
A note about Chia Seeds...they aren't just to grow hair on those terracotta Obama heads! They are SO good for you. "Chia seeds are one of the most powerful, functional, and nutritious superfoods in the world! The chia seed is an excellent source of fiber, packed with antioxidants, full of protein, loaded with vitamins and minerals, and the richest known plant source of omega-3."
