How to make chick pea crackers?

To make these wholewheat chick pea crackers, simply add your ingredients to a mixer. Blend until smooth.

Spoon out the mixture and roll it out with a rolling pin between two pieces of parchment paper or cling film.

Then you can cut out little squares or rectangles. Or you could create fun animal shapes using cookie cutters if you prefer.

Cook in the oven for 20 minutes and enjoy!

Kids love them and they might become one of your favourite snacks too.

Roll out the dough

On a large flat surface, cut out two sheets of parchment paper. If you don’t have parchment paper, cling film can work too.
