Homemade Herbs de Provence Crackers

5 from 1 review

Homemade crackers are fun and simple to make. They are a flat, crisp cracker loaded with Herbs de Provence and sprinkled with flaked Maldon sea salt. These crackers make a great addition to a cheese board or as a hostess gift. Change up the herbs for your favourite flavours.


Units Scale
  • 1/2 cup (60 g) all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup (60 g) whole-wheat flour
  • 2 Tablespoons (12 g) rye flour
  • 1 Tablespoon dried Herbs de Provence
  • 1/8 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 cup water, at room temperature
  • 3 Tablespoons (32 g) olive oil
  • Flaked Maldon salt for topping


  1. In a large bowl add all dry ingredients; flours, herbs and salt together (minus the Maldon salt), stir to combine.
  2. Next, add your wet ingredients, water and oil. Using a fork, mix dough until ragged.
  3. Using your hands, knead the dough until it comes together. Shape dough into a ball then wrap in plastic and refrigerate for 30 minutes or up to 24 hours.
  4. Preheat oven to 350˚F and line two baking sheets with parchment paper, set aside.
  5. Remove dough from the fridge and cut into 4 equal pieces. Using a rolling pin, roll each piece out (one at a time) into a long, oval shape. Roll dough out as thin as you can get it. Note: If your dough keeps springing back when you roll it, it hasn’t rested long enough.
  6. Transfer each piece onto the baking sheet, 2 ovals per baking sheet.
  7. Spray dough with water and sprinkle flaked Maldon salt over the tops.
  8. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until crackers are golden and crisp. Watch carefully.
  9. Let crackers cool completely. Once cooled, break pieces up into smaller crackers.


Store crackers in a container for up to 2 weeks.

Use a pasta roller to roll dough instead of a rolling pin.

If crackers go soft re-crisp in the oven at 350˚F for 5-8 minutes.
