Roasted Sesame Crackers Made With Thin Toasted Barley Flour

Roasted Sesame Crackers Made With Thin Toasted Barley Flour

Try these thin and crisp crackers; they're filled with nutrient-rich sesame seeds and are baked with a fragrant finish. It's an oily-free snack that can be made without much effort.

Ingredients: 1 oven tray worth

1/2 teaspoon
Sugar (cane sugar, if available)
30 g
Toasted barley flour
2 tablespoons
White and black sesame seeds
30 g (mixed)
Egg or milk
1/2 egg or 2 tablespoons milk


1. Add the ingredients listed into a bowl in the order shown, mixing well after each addition.
2. Drop spoonfuls of the dough on a sheet of parchment paper. The batter should yield enough dough for about 16 crackers.
3. Lay a piece of parchment paper cut into an 8 cm square over the dough and press down with your fingers to flatten to an even thinness.
4. Bake the dough in an oven preheated to 350°F/180°C for about 8 to 10 minutes, checking from time to time to see whether they are baking evenly. They're done with they turn a light brown.
5. Allow them to cool to a crisp, then serve.
6. Be sure to chew them well to fully enjoy the sesame flavor. Chewing them well also helps the body absorb the nutrients better, too.
7. Here, I used sweet potato flour instead of toasted barley flour. Please refer to "Thin Sweet Potato Flour Roasted Sesame Crackers" (Recipe ID: 954215).

9. Addendum on May 2, 2013: For subtle seasoning, sprinkle a bit of cinnamon powder on top; it's also very tasty.

Story Behind this Recipe

I've made several attempts to come up with a good recipe for a nutritious cracker full of sesame seeds and decided to stick with this. The miso as the secret ingredient and the toasted barley flour add to the nutty flavor.
