  • 1 cup whole wheat flour I used whole grain sprouted wheat flour, plus more for rolling.
  • ½ cup spelt flour or if you'd rather you can use 1 ½ cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar I used coconut palm sugar
  • 1 stick of cold butter cut into 8 tablespoons
  • 4 tablespoons honey divided
  • ½ teaspoon sesame oil
  • 2 ½ cups toasted sesame seeds
  • 4 tablespoons ice water divided


  • In a food processor, or by hand a in a large
    bowl using a pastry blender, pulse/blend the flours, baking soda, salt, brown
    sugar until it forms a sand-like consistency.
  • Add in the butter, 2 tablespoons honey, sesame
    oil and 3 tablespoons ice water. Pulse/blend until the dough comes together into a slightly sticky ball, but one that holds together nicely.
  • Add the sesame seeds to the dough and using a
    wooden spoon and fold them thoroughly into the dough.
  • Form the dough into a disc and wrap it in
    plastic wrap. Refrigerate for at least 20 minutes.
  • Roll the chilled dough out onto a lightly
    floured surface to ⅛" thickness.
  • Preheat oven to 350-degrees.
  • Using a pizza cutter or pastry wheel, cut the
    dough into whatever size shapes you like. I cut mine into approximately 1"
  • Transfer the crackers onto a parchment-lined
    baking sheet.
  • Mix together 2 tablespoons honey and 1
    tablespoon water. *Note - It's easier to mix if you place it in a microwave for just a few seconds.
  • Using a pastry brush, brush the tops of the
    crackers with half of the honey mixture.
  • Bake for approximately 10 minutes and then
    remove the crackers and brush them again with the remaining honey mixture.
  • Return the crackers to the oven for another
    10-15 minutes and then cool on a wire rack.
