I usually make a big batch at the beginning of the week that will last us several days. The rest of the family enjoys them as mid-afternoon snacks on the go.

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 175C/375F.
  2. In a large bowl, sift together chickpea flour, salt, sesame seeds and thyme.
  3. Stir in oil, then add the water.
  4. Knead until it becomes a supple dough. Add little more flour if too wet, or little more water if too dry.
  5. Form dough into a disc.
  6. Between two sheets of parchment paper, roll out the dough evenly and as thin as possible, to 1/8 inch thickness (or less if you can). Remove top baking sheet.
  7. With a knife or cookie cutter, cut the dough into desired shapes. Poke each cracker with a fork to prevent puffing.
  8. Transfer onto baking sheet (with bottom parchment paper).
  9. Bake for 15-18 minutes or until edges turn golden brown.
  10. Remove from the oven and let cool. Break crackers at pre-cut edges.
  11. Serve immediately or keep in open bowl (they tend to un-crisp in airtight containers).
