Elevate your snacking experience with Organic Ancient Grains!


Einkorn, one of the earliest cultivated forms of wheat, has been treasured for centuries for its unique taste and exceptional nutritional profile. Unlike modern wheat varieties, Einkorn remains largely unaltered by selective breeding, preserving its natural qualities. Packed with vitamins, minerals, and fiber, Einkorn is known for its high protein content and low gluten levels, making it a popular choice for those with sensitivities. By incorporating Einkorn flour into our crackers, we provide a wholesome alternative to traditional snack options.

Course: Snack



  • 1 1/2 Cups Hot Tap Water
  • 3/4 Cup Melted Coconut Oil
  • 1 Tbsp Real Salt
  • 1 tsp Onion Powder
  • 1 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 6 Cups Organic Whole Grain Einkorn Flour
  • 2 Cups Sourdough Start
  • 1 Cup Grated Cheddar Cheese (Optional)


  • 1 Cup Fresh Basil Slightly Packed *See Notes
  • 1/4 Cup Avocado Oil
  • 2 Small Cloves Garlic or 1 Large Clove Garlic
  • 1/4 Cup Pine Nuts or Sunflower Seeds
  • 1/4 tsp Real Salt
  • 1/2 Cup Parmesan Cheese



  • To get coarse flour, blend 6 cups of einkorn berries in a blender (Blend 2-3 cups at a time for 60-90 seconds)
  • Thoroughly mix first five ingredients and 4 cups of flour.
  • Add sourdough start and mix.
  • Add remaining flour until right consistency. It should be one mass pulled completely away from sides of bowl and should not be sticky.
  • Let rest in warm place for 4-6 hours.
  • Roll out dough as thin as possible. Cut into a few large rectangles. (For cheese cracker variation, knead graded cheese into the dough before rolling out.)
  • Place 1-2 rectangles on hot griddle at a time. Once you’ve laid one down, salt the side that’s facing up.

    Fork thoroughly before turning
  • Flip over and, while still on griddle, cut into little squares with a pizza cutter.

  • Once both sides have browned a little, place on cookie rack to cool. (See above picture for example of correct coloring).
  • Let cool completely before serving or storing in airtight container.


  • Blend all ingredients in food processor or blender until desired consistency.


*In place of 1 Cup Fresh Basil you can use 1 Cup Spinach and 3 drops Basil Essential Oil
These are crackers. If they are not cooked long enough or not allowed to cool long enough, they will be chewy instead of crunchy.
