Today’s store-bought crackers are a shadow of what the real ones can be. White flour concoctions with heavy emphasis on salt just is not a healthy food. Here are some recipes I’ve found that bring delicious goodness to this favorite snack food we all used to enjoy with soup, cheese or peanut butter. Over and over again I read that crackers are easy to make and actually cheaper and healthier than buying them from the store.

These basic crackers only have 4 very basic ingredients and she swears they are super easy to make. She suggests trying other things like cheese, herbs, spices, nuts and seeds after you get the basic recipe figured out.

Just a couple additional ingredients give these crackers the flavor that we are used to getting from a box.

I had to include this recipe because I love chocolate. Butter and cocoa powder – yum! I really want to try this one.
Homemade Graham Crackers from Smitten Kitchen
Who remembers how good graham crackers tasted when we were young? These homemade graham crackers taste even better. This recipe looks like there is a little bit more involved but well worth it.
Homemade Yogurt & Spelt Crackers from Nourished Kitchen
Flaky, tender, crispy – these homemade yogurt and spelt crackers take little effort to make. In case you are wondering – Spelt flour is a whole grain flour that is not wheat. The taste is similar to whole wheat flour and it is very popular in Europe.
Cheddar Crackers from Home Cooking In Montana
These delicious cheddar cheese crackers make a better substitute to many of the cheese snacks we find at the store. Who cares if they are not shaped like fish? Cookie cutters do come in all shapes and sizes. Oh, yeah!
Wouldn’t it be nice to keep a supply of delicious homemade crackers available to the family? With these around snacks could be a healthy supplement to mealtime instead of a time to consume empty calories or worse.
