This easy pesto sourdough crackers recipe makes such a healthy, delicious snack. Try this recipe when you have extra sourdough starter that needs a home.
These sourdough crackers are addictive.
The tangy sourdough and savory pesto come together in a way that challenges my sweet tooth to become a savory tooth. This is a great way to use up some sourdough starter when it gets too big.
These crackers are more nutritious and more easily digested than typical whole wheat crackers because the sourdough helps to break down the phytic acid in the gluten. This makes the nutrients more accessible, and the gluten is much easier to digest.
Sourdough Crackers Tips
Use extra sourdough starter to put together the simple dough for these crackers. After rolling out the dough, cut the crackers into whatever shape you’d like.
You can store these sourdough crackers in an airtight container at room temperature for several days.
Sourdough Crackers Recipe
- 1 cup sourdough starter
- 1/4 cup melted coconut oil
- 1 cup white whole wheat flour
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- 2 tbs pesto
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
- Mix together the starter, oil, flour, and sea salt.
- Knead in the pesto until well-distributed.
- Roll the dough a scant 1/4 inch thick on a baking stone or parchment-lined baking sheet. With a pizza cutter, cut the crackers into the desired shape. (I cut them into squares.)
- Sprinkle with kosher salt.
- Bake for about 20 minutes, until the crackers begin to turn brown. Turn off the oven, open the door a bit, and leave them in the oven for another 10 minutes so they become crispy.
- Cool on a rack. Store at room temperature in an airtight container.
Pesto Sourdough Cracker Recipe Price Breakdown
This recipe generates about 12 ounces of crackers, and the total cost is $1.75. The same quantity of Ak-Mak whole grain crackers costs $5.07 at Trader Joe’s. That’s about 3 times as much as my homemade crackers cost, and the homemade version has the added nutritional benefits of sourdough and coconut oil.
