Oatmeal-Wheat Germ Crackers

Wonderful crackers to make for a healthful snack, to go with soup or whatever...

3 C quick oatmeal
2 C unbleached white flour
1 C wheat germ (raw or toasted)
3 Tbsp granulated sugar
1 tsp salt
3/4 C canola oil
1 C water
Sesame or poppy seeds (optional)

In a large bowl, combine quick oats, flour, wheat germ, sugar and salt. Set aside.

In a small bowl, combine oil and water. Stir briskly; add all at once to dry mixture. Stir until dough forms a ball. Divide dough into 4 balls. While working with first ball, keep other dough covered.

On an ungreased cookie sheet, roll ball of dough until cracker-thin. Sprinkle lightly with salt and, if you desire, sesame or poppy seeds. Press in seeds with the rolling pin. Score the rolled dough with a pizza cutter to desired cracker sizes (nutritional information is based on 1/60 of a recipe). Bake at 350° F for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown. The outside crackers may brown faster than the inside crackers, so you may want to cool the outside crackers on a wire rack and re-insert the cookie sheet into the oven to finish baking the remaining crackers. Cool on a wire rack.

Servings: 60 crackers
