I am back to some healthy baking after a long time. It is the time of our Bread Bakers Challenge and Sneha from Sneha’s Recipe wanted us to make some Crackers. As you know I love baking and specially healthy baking. Hence I was thinking of a recipe where I can sneak some veggies to my crackers with some healthy flours.

I have already converted our fried matris to this Baked Version and made this healthy munching Baked Whole Wheat Methi Matri (Fenugreek Crackers) and this vegan and gluten free Baked Chickpea Crackers using chickpea flour.



A Healthy munching Snack

So I wanted to make something different which I can munch on for my mid evening snacks as well the kids can enjoy. I had some fresh carrots from our local organic farm so decided to use this into some coarse wholemeal flour which was lying in my pantry. 

Will you believe me if I say that I made this recipe on the go? Yes I go crazy at times but tried my luck. I also picked some organic rolled oats and added it to the flour and carrot mix. Next I wanted to add chia seeds so skipped the egg and made a chia egg. 

Am I done with my experiment? Not really, Added some cheddar cheese and smoked paprika for the flavour with some sesame seeds sprinkled on the top. Thats it all set to be baked in the oven, with fingers crossed that they turn out good. 

I enjoyed them with a spread with some yummy Green Tomato Chutney again made with my fresh garden tomatoes last year. My son in the evening told me I ate those crackers mumma while you were away and I loved it. So all in all I am happy with my new healthy Wholemeal and Oats Carrot Crackers bake.
