Spicy Chive & Garlic Oat Crackers
I was just back from the CNY break and given a day off left, I felt like baking something to welcome myself back before getting busy after my daughter's school resumes...
The recipe ( adapted from here )
1 cup old-fasioned rolled oats, coarsely ground
5 tbsp wheat flour
5 tbsp plain flour
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp dried chive
3/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 coarsely ground pepper powder
1/2 tsp chilli flakes
45 g cold unsalted butter, cubed
6 tbsp milk
2 tbsp olive oil
In a mixing bowl, stir the first 10 ingredients until well blended. Add the butter and mix till it is like a coarse crumbly powder. Add the oil and milk to form the dough. Knead the dough few times, then wrap with cling film to rest the dough for 30 minutes.
Pre-heat the oven to 170 C. Roll the dough out to about 1/4" thickness or thinner and use a cookie cutter to cut into rounds and place these crackers on the baking sheet lined with parchment paper or silicone mat.
Bake for 6 mins and then turn over and bake for another 6-7 mins till slightly browned and crispy.
