Breads, Chips, and Crackers
Artisan Bread
6 1/2 cups lukewarm water                    1 Tbsp yeast
7 cups whole wheat flour                     3 Tbsp salt
6 cups unbleached flour                            ¼ cup olive oil 

Mix flours together in a separate bowl. Combine remaining ingredients in a bowl. Let rise at least 2 hours or refrigerate overnight. Preheat oven to 475ºF. Preheat 3 deep iron skillets with lids (like a Dutch oven) for 45 minutes. Oil 3 bowls and cut the dough into 3 sections placing one in each bowl. 
At the end of preheating the pans, gently drop each section into a pan. Replace lid and place in oven. Bake at 475 ºF for 30 minutes. Remove lids and bake for 10-15 minutes more. Makes 3 round loaves. This makes a very unique bread.
 Great for garlic bread.

Cornmeal Gems

½ cup spelt  or (ww) flour 

¼ cup honey

Spoon into oiled muffin tins. Bake at 350°F for about 20-25 minutes. Makes about 18 muffin tops or mini muffin gems

Raisin Bread Muffins
½ c dates, blended with some of water 
1 c. warm water 
2 cups spelt or whole wheat flour combo 
1 ¼ cup raisins 
2 Tbsp lemon juice 
¼ tsp salt 
1 Tbsp yeast 
1 Tbsp oil
Mix all ingredients well and put in oiled muffin pans. Let rise 30 minutes. Bake at 350 ºF for 20-30 minutes. Yields 12 muffins. These are best rewarmed for breakfast and served with vegan butter.
Sesame Crackers
¼ cup sucanat   
1/3 cup olive oil
2 cups quick oats 
2/3 cup water
½ cup sesame seeds 
2 tsp salt
1 cup cashews, ground OR ½ c almond meal & ½ c walnut meal
¾ to 1 cup whole wheat flour
Mix all ingredients thoroughly to make a stiff dough. Knead into a smooth ball. Roll out ¼ inch thick onto a large cookie sheet. Cut into fairly large cracker sized portions. Bake 20-25 minutes at 350◦F until golden brown. If browning too fast, lower the temperature and increase the time. Should be crisp like crackers. Makes a little more than four dozen 1”x3”sticks.
Cheese Crackers
1 cup sesame cheese 
½ Tbsp yeast
1 ½ cups of flour, mixture of oat, millet and unbleached
For using yeast, warm cheese. Mix ingredients. Add more flour if necessary to be able to knead dough. Roll out onto 1 cookie sheet. Score into crackers. Poke a hole in the centers. Sprinkle with salt. Bake 8-10 minutes until light brown at 325◦F. You may have to remove some of the crackers from the pan before others to avoid burning. I make “goldfish” for the kids from this recipe.
