Oat flour

Peppery Corn Crackers

by Berkeley Wellness  |  

In addition to cornmeal, these crisp and spicy corn crackers contain oat flour in place of wheat flour. Eat them on their own or top them with a little avocado, bean dip, or other tasty tidbit.


  • 1 cup yellow cornmeal
  • ⅓ cup oat flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • ¼ cup plain fat-free yogurt
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 2 tablespoons extra-light olive oil


1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray.

2. In a medium bowl, combine the cornmeal, oat flour, salt, baking soda, and cayenne. In a small bowl, combine the yogurt, milk, and oil. Add the yogurt mixture to the cornmeal mixture and stir until a soft dough forms.

3. Place the dough on the prepared baking sheet and pat into a square shape. Place a sheet of wax paper over the dough. Roll into a 10-inch square, a scant ¼ inch thick. Make sure the center is as thin as the edges. Remove the wax paper. If necessary, trim the dough to form a square. Cut the dough into 2½ x 2-inch rectangles (but leave the crackers just where they are, on the baking sheet).

4. Bake for 20 minutes, or until golden brown and crisp. Cool the crackers for 5 minutes on the baking sheet before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. Store in an airtight container.

Makes 20 crackers.
