These Veggie Crackers are easy to make and make great finger food!

I am constantly trying to think of new ideas for finger food.

Last night I put together these vegetable crackers.  They are easy to make, healthy, perhaps a little bland, but a great snack to take in that handy snack cup.  And they’ve got a good serving of vegetables.

These can be introduced at 10 months.

I used my food processor and used the same process for making them as I did for the Goldfish Crackers.  Roll them out directly onto parchment paper, cut them out on the paper, move the paper & crackers onto a baking sheet and bake.  I double-baked these as well, to make them crispy.

Vegetable Crackers

  • 1 medium onion
  • 1 C frozen peas and carrots (thawed)
  • 1 t salt
  • 1 t basil
  • 1 t paprika
  • 1 t oregano
  • 2 &1/2 C whole spelt flour (or whole wheat)*
  • 1/4 C coconut oil (or butter)*

Preheat your oven to 400 deg. F.  Put the onion, peas & carrots in the food processor and pulse until they are broken into fine pieces.  You may have to scrape the sides of the bowl a few times.  Add the salt, basil, paprika, oregano and flour and pulse until well combined.  Add the coconut oil and pulse until a dough forms.  If it is too dry add 1 T of water and then pulse, until you get the right consistency.  Once a dough has formed, put half of the dough on a piece of parchment paper and roll out as thin as you can.  It is a stiff dough, so you may have to put a little power behind your rolling.  Roll out the other half on a second sheet.  Using a knife or (ideally) a pizza cutter, cut the dough into dime or nickel size pieces.  Place in the oven and bake for 10 minutes.  Removes from oven & let cool for 10 moinutes.  Separate the crackers, but make sure they are in a single layer.  Put back in the oven for a final 8 to 10 minutes, until they are golden brown and crisp.  This makes a lof of crackers.  I didn’t even want to start counting how many!

*If using the wheat or butter substitution you should wait a year to give these to your little one, but with the coconut oil & spelt you can introduce this finger food at 10 months.

    Do you think I might be able to run this through my cookie press like a cheese straw and make crackers this? Just not sure whether the dough is loose enough to, er, extrude through the little dies.

    I think I’ll just try it and let you know how it turns out 🙂

      Let me know how it goes! I never thought about that, but I think it would work.
