  • Wide mixing bowl
  • Measuring cups
  • Measuring spoons
  • Baking tray
  • Parchment paper
  • Rolling pin
  • Cookie-cutters
  • Sharp knife
  • Cooling rack
  • Oven mitts
  • Spatula


  • 1/2 cup sourdough starter
  • 1/3 cup Tirokafteri
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tbsp hemp hearts
  • 2 tbsp butter cold
  • 1 tbsp water cold

Optional for sprinkling

  • pinch Sea salt
  • pinch cayenne pepper
  • pinch black pepper


  • Add sourdough starter and Tirokafteri to a wide mixing bowl and stir until blended.
  • Add flour, baking powder, hemp hearts, and finely chopped butter. Using your fingertips, crumble-mix the ingredients until they begin to form small balls.
  • Add cold water and knead until the dough becomes a large ball.
    Refrigerate for 10-15 minutes while you prepare the rolling station.
  • Tear enough parchment paper to cover the baking tray and place on the counter.
  • Set the chilled dough on the paper, in the centre.
    Press to flatten slightly before rolling out to an even 1/16" - 1/8" thickness.
  • Using a sharp knife or cookie-cutters, cut the crackers.
    Sprinkle with sea salt or other seasoning.
  • Bake at 325°F (165°C) for 15 minutes. Rotate the baking tray during this time to ensure even baking.
    Remove crisp, browned crackers and place on a cooling rack.
  • Test remaining crackers by pressing the centre. If still soft, bake at a lower temperature, 250°F (130°C) until crisp.
  • Once cool, store in an airtight container for up to one week.
