Make these sesame buttermilk crackers and enjoy delicious crispy snacks throughout the day. These crackers are packed with healthy ingredients so you won't feel guilty when enjoying them.

Who doesn't love crispy crackers, especially if they are just from the oven. We would like to share with you the recipe for simple crisp crackers loaded with healthy ingredients and topped with aromatic sesame seeds. The dough comes together in a few minutes, then roll it out, cut into rombs and bake shortly to get a bunch of delicious snacks. 

We love these crackers with some salmon pate on the top but you can pair it with any dip you wish. Instead of sesame, you can use toasted cumin seeds, coarsely crushed coriander, a bit of chili powder or red pepper pack some punch. You could also use fennel, celery seeds, poppy seeds...you get the idea.

Why our sesame buttermilk crackers are so special

Making a dough for sesame buttermilk crackers, couldn't be easier. Just combine all ingredients in one bowl, roll out the dough, sprinkle with sesame seeds, cut into desired shapes and bake quickly in the oven. 

Thanks to the combination of flours - plain, whole grain spelt and corn, gives crispy texture which is ideal for crackers. They are loaded with sesame seeds giving amazing nutty flavour. Thanks to the buttermilk, the dough has true buttery texture and flavour - the are like savoury cookies.

how to make sesame buttermilk crackers

MAKING THE DOUGH: For these crackers you will need only one bowl in which you first combine plain, spelt and corn flours, baking powder, sesame seeds and salt. These combination of flours gives delicious flavour and crisp texture while sesame seeds adds a special kick. Add olive oil and buttermilk in the flours and using a spoon incorporate everything together. The dough should be compact and not so soft. 

SHAPING THE CRACKERS: Once you dust work surface and rolling pin, roll out the dough as thin as possible. This will make them crisp and delicious. If they are not thin enough, they will be rather chewy than crispy. For this you need to have a proper rolling pin - the best one is with rotating handless. Cut the dough using a fluted pastry wheal or a sharp knife into desired shapes. We like rhomboids shape for crackers which is easily done by cutting the dough into 3cm wide stripes and then into small rhomboid crackers.

BAKING THE CRACKERS: Bake in the preheated oven for about 6 - 8 minutes, but watch closely as they burnt easily. Crackers should be slightly brown in the edges and crispy. Let them cool off completely, then put them in air-tight container. This way they should stay crispy and delicious for days!

Sesame Buttermilk Crackers Recipe

MAKES: 35 crackers
COOKS IN: 30 minutes


  • 40g plain flour
  • 40g whole grain spelt flour
  • 30g corn flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 60ml buttermilk
  • 1 egg white
  • 30g sesame seeds


  1. Preheat the oven to 175°C (347°F). Line the baking tray with baking paper.

  2. Combine the plain, spelt and corn fours, baking powder, sesame seeds and salt in a large bowl. Make a well in the centre of flours and add the olive oil and buttermilk. Stir, gradually incorporating the flour into the wet ingredients, until it forms a compact dough. Add additional buttermilk if it is too dry.

  3. Turn the dough onto lightly floured work surface and knead for about 30 seconds. Set aside to rest for about 15 minutes.

  4. Lightly flour the work surface and rolling pin. Roll the dough until paper thin, turning the dough as you roll to prevent sticking. Use a fluted pastry wheal or a sharp knife to cut the dough into desired shapes. 

  5. Place the crackers on prepared baking tray and prick each cracker with a fork 2 - 3 times. Brush each cracker with egg white and sprinkle generously with sesame seeds.

  6. Bake in the oven for 6 - 8 minutes or until the edges of crackers turn brown and crackers are crisp, rotating the pans midway through baking. Watch carefully as crackers burn easily. Let cool on the pan and store in an airtight container.
