Homemade Spelt Crackers

with Organic Spelt Kernels

Spelt Crackers are perfect for the holiday season with a little history and modern twist of ingredients.  Spelt is one of the oldest cultivated crops in human history. It is believed to have been used between 7,000 and 8,000 years ago.

Furthermore, Spelt is an ancient grain that has lately made a comeback in North America.  It has been popular through the decades in many European countries.

Some of the health benefits of spelt include:

  • Regulating the body’s metabolism.
  • Increases circulation
  • Builds strong bones
  • Improve the immune system
  • Boosts digestive function

These chewy crackers are always perfect for dinner parties! Infused with nutritious seeds like Sunflower Seeds, Flax Seeds and Chia Seeds. The combination of seeds is rich in healthy fatty acids and antioxidants, this recipe is nut free.

These crackers may look intimidating to make but they come together fast and easy. Perfect toppers are avocado and Spanish paprika.
