Rosemary & Sea Salt Flatbread Crackers

Did you watch the game on Sunday?!

Rosemary & Sea Salt Flatbread Crackers | #recipeDid you love it, or hate it? Those seem to be the only two sentiments. I think most people who didn’t have a stake in it found it to be disappointing since it was such a blowout… which is of course why I, and all other Seahawks fans think it could;t have gone any better!  I won’t go on about it too much, but WOOO the drought is over! We have a championship!

I made these crackers (among other things) for the Super Bowl party I went to, and they were perfect for snacking!

Rosemary & Sea Salt Flatbread Crackers | #recipe Rosemary & Sea Salt Flatbread Crackers | #recipeYou’re going to love these. Why? Because they are crunchy and flaky and addictively salty. They’re also stupid easy to make. There’s only like 5 ingredients and all you d it stir them all together in a bowl—foolproof! You can leave the flatbreads whole, or break them into pieces.

I found this recipe on Simple Provisions, and I LOVE her idea to top them with pork rilletes. I’m pretty sure that would be beyond phenomenal. I might have to make some chicken liver pâté to eat the rest of my crackers with 😉

Rosemary & Sea Salt Flatbread Crackers

Yield: 3 flatbreads

Rosemary & Sea Salt Flatbread Crackers


  • 1 and 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 and 1/2 tbsp chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/3 cup olive oil, plus more for brushing
  • Flaky sea salt, to top


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees, with a baking sheet on the middle rack.
  2. In a bowl, combine the flour, rosemary, baking powder, and salt. Pour in the water and olive oil and stir with a wooden spoon until a dough forms.
  3. Turn the dough ball out onto a clean work surface and knead a couple times until it comes together. Split the ball into three pieces.
  4. Lay a sheet of parchment paper down. Roll out one of the dough balls onto the parchment paper so it is thin (maybe 1/8" to 1/4").
  5. Brush the entire surface with olive oil and sprinkle with salt.
  6. Pick up the entire sheet of parchment paper with dough and place on the hot baking sheet in the oven. Bake for 10 minutes, until sides are golden. Carefully, lift the parchment paper off of the baking sheet and set aside to cool. Repeat with the other 2 balls of dough.

    Really beautiful. I love the ease and rustic look of homemade crackers and it's a shame that they're not made more often!

      Thank you! I think people just don't know how easy they are 😉

    These look amazing! I wonder how they would taste with whole wheat flour

      Ooh what a good idea! I bet it would make them a little nutty. If you try it out, I'd love to hear how it goes!

    Hello! I just wanted to thank you for the recipe! I first made it about a year ago and it is one of my go-to recipes. So much cheaper and tastier than store bought crackers! I just bought one of those Rosemary mini trees that they sell for Christmas so I’ll have a nice big plant from now on 🙂

    I’m planning to make this again this week, along with a few dips, because family is coming to town. I love your photography and blog layout!

      I’m so happy to hear this, Anna! You’re so sweet to leave this comment.
      I totally LOVE these crackers, too! it’s kinda crazy how easy they are, right?!

      I want to buy one of those little mini trees, but I’m worried I won;t be able to keep it alive with very little sunlight in Seattle during the Winter, haha

    Amazing! I made 2 batches of these yesterday, one as per the recipe and one with organic whole wheat flour! Both are delicious; my taste testers all approve! Thanks for the recipe!

      I’m definitely going to have to try them with whole wheat flour! I bet it gives the crackers a great nutty taste!
