Daring Bakers: Crackers (1 day late)

I finished baking the crackers last night, but did not have time to take pictures and post them. The crackers, which I made from whole wheat flour, actually turned out pretty good. I topped them with sesame seeds, black pepper and salt before baking.

For the dip, I made Butternut Squash Hummus: equal amount of roasted butternut squash and chickpeas, a tablespoon of tahini, juice of 1/2 lemon, 4 cloves of roasted garlic, salt and pepper. Give it a try.

This is a great combo - wheat crackers + autumnal butternut squash hummus = perfect! I love the shape of your lavash, too!

Love the look and color scheme you got there. I bet it was even better to eat.

Oh, I thought they were supposed to be gluten free? Doesn't whole wheat flour still have gluten? Hummus looks yummy!

Beautiful combination of crackers and dip- as another DB told me- there is nothing in the rules about posting late- just early :)

Better late than never! I like the wholewheat element of your lavash. Wish I'd thought of that, as I normally prefer wholewheat breads.
