It’s been such a long time since I’ve posted the last cracker recipe but now the cracker-family got a new member: Golden Turmeric Cracker. Let’s all welcome this vibrant addition! :)

Turmeric is all the rage right now. According to this The Huffington Post article, turmeric has the power to tame heartburn or an upset stomach, prevent heart attacks, delay diabetes, fight cancer, protect the brain and curb joint pain. Convinced? Then you’ll definitely want to try my Golden Turmeric Cracker!

Tips for making the perfect crispy crackers

  • The consistency of the dough: Flour, water, even altitude matter when making the dough, so it’s best to trust your instincts a bit when making the dough. Add water until you can make a smooth dough. If you’re not sure, it’s best to make it too wet than too dry, you can always work more flour into the dough while rolling out the crackers. A wetter dough is easier to roll out than one that is hard and crumbly.
  • The cracker thickness: Roll out the dough as thin and as even as possible. This ensures even baking! If they are not thin enough, they will be rather chewy than crispy. The best way to do this is to roll out the dough on a lightly floured parchment paper, cut them, and then carefully pull the parchment paper with the crackers onto the baking sheet. It also helps if you take your time rolling out the dough..sometimes it looks like it doesn’t get any thinner. Then I walk away for one minute and come back..then the dough has relaxed a bit and can be rolled out easier and thinner.
  • Rolling pin: A proper rolling pin helps a lot with rolling the dough evenly. It works best with a large rolling pin with rotating handles.
  • Baking times: All ovens are different. Keep a close eye on them if you make them the first time. If a few of them start to puff up a bit, that’s a good sign! They should get slightly golden/brown. If you’re not sure, they should be crispy to the touch.

Bianca, Thank you for this simple but crazy delicious recipe! I initially prepared it as written. We liked them so much! Since then I have made them with almond or whole wheat flour, without oil, and with whatever spice combination sounds good at the time. Sometimes I add nuts or seeds on top, sometimes not. I would have never believed I could make healthy homemade crackers that are actually delicious, but this recipe gave me the courage to experiment. We have not been disappointed. I particularly appreciate the small batch proportions so they don't go to waste and I can make a new combination frequently without guilt!

Hi Bianca, Taken me awhile to make them but I have finally made them. So easy to make and great taste too. I will add more tumeric next time so they are more yellowy. Thank you

Thank you, I thought it was for a serving size not the whole recipe. It makes sense now.

Yeah, I never know what I should use as a serving size for crackers, so I just take the whole bowl and people can choose with how many people they want to share (or not) :D

Hello

Are the calories correct? Over 600 calories seems very high for the ingredients.

Thanks.

Apparently, 1 cup of all-purpose flour has 455 calories, so I think they could be somehow correct. But of course, they are estimated by the plugin I'm using. I'm no nutritionist. :)

I will try it with a different flour as I am gluten-intolerant. I'll keep you posted :-) Thank you.

Hi Brigitte! I've made gf crackers using chickpea flour and they turned out great, so I'm hopeful they will work with other gf flours too. I'd recommend rolling the dough out between two pieces of parchment paper because it's much stickier! :)
