Rainforest Crackers


I came home to the smell of these absolutely glorious crackers.  Lovely with cheese or cream cheese or just plain with tea.  They also make a lovely hostess gift.

Rainforest Crackers:
2 cups flour   
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
2 cups buttermilk
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup honey
1 cup raisins or cranberries or currants or combination
1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts or almond
1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
1/4 cup sunflower seeds or sesame seeds
1/4 cup flaxseed ground
1 T fresh rosemary chopped
Mix all ingredients together & pour into two large or four small loaf pans that have been sprayed with non stick spray.....Bake at 350 for 25 min for small pans/45 minutes for large pans, until golden & springy.  Cool
Freeze the loaves & when you want to bake, thaw slightly then slice as thin as possible. Lay out on baking sheet and bake at 300 for 15 min, then flip over and bake another 15 min.  Should be crisp and deep golden.
Use your imagination per ingredients above, use some or all of nuts, rosemary, etc or substitute.  Enjoy!
