Make Your Own Crackers – Homemade Wheat Thins

Make your own crackers! These Homemade Wheat Thin Crackers take about 10 minutes to make, taste better than store bought and are made with real ingredients that you can actually pronounce.

Wheat Thins are my favorite kind of cracker. I can go through half a box in one sitting, easy. This can often result in no wheat thins around when I really want some. To fix this problem I have an incredibly easy recipe to make your own crackers that in my opinion taste better than the store bought Wheat Thins and are made with real ingredients that I can actually pronounce. The recipe that I use has only a few simple ingredients; whole wheat flour, sugar/honey, salt, paprika, butter, water and vanilla. I love that I always have these ingredients on hand and they only take about 10 minutes to bake. I’ve only made a few varieties of homemade crackers and these near the top of the list. They are crispy and crunchy but slightly chewy in the center. The perfect cracker!
