Do you like crackers? How about hummus? What if I told you I made the perfect recipe that mashes both of these favourite things of mine into one awesome, convenient, bite-size goodie? Awesome right? Well, my friends, I give you: Garlic Hummus Crackers!!
Crackers have been a favourite thing to make ever since I found a copy-cat recipe of Mary’s Crackers a few years back. Since then, I’ve always looked at the ingredient lists of my favourite crackers to try and figure out how to create a make-at-home versions on the cheap.
Recently, I’ve been noticing more and more varieties of hummus crackers at some of our frequent grocery stores. Every time I get excited to try one of these yummy sounding crackers, I am quickly disappointed to then find dairy milk in the ingredient lists. Having recently identified dairy as one of the foods that really upsets my tummy, I’ve been trying to consciously avoid it wherever possible. And really, why does milk need to be in my crackers, anyways?
Thankfully, I saw this defeat as a personal challenge and started to formulate ways that I could make hummus crackers in the comfort of my own kitchen. Well, after one terribly failed attempt at these that almost saw us with a few broken teeth, I’m so happy to share with you this quick and easy recipe for hummus crackers.
These crackers need only 8 ingredients. one bowl and require less than 10 minutes of prep. Basically, you can have fresh out of the oven crackers in less than 30 minutes from start to finish, and that is a pretty amazing thing! Clean up is also a breeze since these crackers are rolled out between two sheets of parchment paper and then transferred directly onto a cookie sheet and straight into the oven.
These crackers were gobbled up in no time in our house and, for double the hummus pleasure, dipped into our favourite garlic hummus recipe to boot. Needless to say, we probably could have slayed some vamps with our awesome garlic breath after all was said and done. On the plus side, garlic has tonnes of health benefits so a little bad breath is totally worth it in our opinion.
If you’re not a fan of garlic, you could season these crackers in countless other fashions. Rosemary, chili flakes or Cajun seasoning would all make delicious additions to these crackers and are on the to-do list for the next time we make these at home. We also made a really tasty eggplant dip at home today that we can’t wait to dunk these crackers into.
