Whole Wheat Hummus Flatbread Crackers

11 May

I received free samples of Sabra Hummus mentioned in this post. By posting this recipe I am entering a recipe contest sponsored by Sabra and am eligible to win prizes associated with the contest. I was not compensated for my time.

There are SO MANY crackers out there that appear healthy and delicious. But upon closer inspection, most of these have a crazy amount of unpronounceable ingredients that are apparently only there to keep the crackers shelf stable.

Well, that might be all well and good, and some would argue that those ingredients are plant-based to a degree, but that’s just not good enough for me.

I want crackers and flatbreads that I can feel good about! Which is why I devised this stupidly simple recipe using just THREE ingredients. Yes, three!! Sabra’s Roasted Red Pepper Hummus provides all the moistness and flavor, whole wheat flour provides some complex carbs, and water pulls it all together.

Ok, water is hardly an ingredient, but like in Scrabble, a two-letter word doesn’t count, so I refuse to count a two-ingredient recipe as a recipe!

As such, enjoy these wholesome, family-friendly, and snack-worthy flatbread crackers. What’s a flatbread cracker? Well, you can either maintain a flatbread mouthfeel OR you can bake them even longer for a crispy cracker. And if you want a different flavor? Go for it! Sabra makes 14 varieties of hummus, so you can go wild! They make an excellent vegan snack to celebrate National Hummus Day, which is May 13. You could totally even dip these in more hummus, because this plant-based dip is all sorts of protein happiness!

Whole Wheat Hummus Crackers

Makes about 40 crackers

  • 10 tbsp Sabra Roasted Red Pepper Hummus
  • 1 C whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 C warm water

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment and grease well.

In a bowl, mix together the hummus, flour and water. Stir together with a spoon until a pliable dough forms. Add more water or flour as needed to achieve the right dough texture – it should begin to ball up quickly.

Transfer the dough to the center of the greased parchment and place another piece of parchment on top. Use a rolling pin to roll out the dough until even and  thin. The thinner, the better! Remove the tap piece of parchment and bake for 15 minutes, turning halfway through.

Remove and let cool five minutes on the baking sheet a few minutes. Then, using a sharp knife or pizza cutter, slice the cracker sheet into square crackers (or rectangles, triangles, whatever you desire!). You don’t need to cut all the way through – just enough to perforate the cracker sheet.

If you want more of a flatbread, let cool completely and then break apart at the perforations.

If you want more of a crisp cracker, cut the sheet all the way through and return to the oven for 5-10 minutes. Then, cool completely.

Transfer crackers to a metal tin or glass container. Store in the fridge and eat within five days.
