I don’t know about you but my toxic personality trait is being able to eat an entire packet of crackers and hummus whilst my dinner is cooking and then still being able to eat my dinner without difficulty. Honestly, how can you blame yourself when the crackers are THIS GOOD?! These Salt & Pepper Honey Spelt Sourdough Crackers are a definite favourite in this household, and yes you must serve them with hummus.
I do low-key have a cracker obsession. “Don’t forget the crackers.” As Wallace would say. It’s my go-to snack and making them yourself sort.. of.. makes.. them.. healthy? Not really but we can convince ourselves otherwise. In this recipe I’m using honey to flavour my crackers, but you can replace this with caster sugar or maple syrup if desired.
I’m also using wholemeal spelt flour instead of white flour to make my cracker dough, because we need those fibres and nutrients. And as always, ancient grains and sourdough are easier on the gut, aiding digestion and mixing up that microbiome (which we love love love here). Without further ado, let’s get into the recipe!

- Brush with a little olive oil, sprinkle on some salt and pepper.
