Spelt Crackers with Dates & Almonds

Author Julie Karla


  • 7 oz. wheat flour
  • 7 oz. whole grain spelt flour
  • 1 tsp. vanilla powder or seeds from 1 vanilla pod
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 egg large
  • 0.6 cup milk
  • 1.8 oz. butter grated cold
  • 2.6 oz. dates chopped
  • 1.8 oz. almonds chopped
  • Milk for brushing
  • Oatmeal for garnish


  1. Preheat oven to 325 °F
  2. Mix the dry ingredients together and add the chopped dates and almonds. Add eggs, milk and grate cold butter in. Knead it all together with your hand, well enough to form a smooth dough. Transfer the dough to a floured surface. Divide the dough in half and roll each half out thinly with a rolling pin. Cut into square blocks. If you have a favourite cut out, feel free to use it, so you get a nice pattern.
  3. Put the crackers on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or wax paper and brush them with milk. Sprinkle with oatmeal.
  4. Bake the crackers for approx. 20 minutes until the edges are golden brown. Yield 35-40 crackers.
