Cracker Fish-1

Add oatmeal to a food processor and process until fine. Add flour, wheat germ, salt and herbs de provence. Process until combined.

Add water, olive oil and cheese. Process until dough begins to hold together in a ball. It took mine a few minutes, and I ended up adding a little more water because it seemed dry.

Cracker Fish-2

On a floured surface, roll dough as thin as you can. Cut out shapes using a cookie cutter or knife. I used a 2 inch cookie cutter similar to this Fish Cookie CutterIf you use a bigger or smaller cookie cutter you are going to want to adjust your baking times.

Place on parchment paper lined cookie sheet and sprinkle with salt – I used kosher. Using the palm of your hand, press the salt into the dough. Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes or until golden.

Total Time:30 mins

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup oatmeal quick cooking is fine
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 3 tablespoons wheat germ I found mine next to the oatmeal in my grocery store
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tablespoon dry herbs de provence or you can substitute for basil or oregano
  • 1/3-1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese.

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Add oatmeal to a food processor and process until fine. Add flour, wheat germ, salt and herbs de provence. Process until combined.
  • Add water, olive oil and cheese. Process until dough begins to hold together in a ball. It took mine a few minutes, and I ended up adding a little more water because it seemed dry.
  • On a floured surface, roll dough as thin as you can. Cut out shapes using a cookie cutter or knife. Place on parchment paper lined cookie sheet and sprinkle with salt - I used kosher. Using the palm of your hand, press the salt into the dough. I always over salt, because half of it doesn't stick and the other half will come off when removing from the pan! Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes or until golden.
  • Check the oven around 10-12 minutes so they are not too golden brown.
