These gluten-free crackers, a tasty and healthy blend of buckwheat, walnuts, sesame seeds and spiced with wasabi (Japanse mustard), thin, crisp, and have an earthy flavour and an intense and rich sesame taste.

Buckwheat Wasabi Crackers with Walnuts and Sesame Seeds

adapted from All Day I Dream About Food
  • 100 g Buckwheat, ground
  • 100 g Walnuts, ground
  • 40 g Sesame seeds, toasted
  • 1 tsp Baking powder
  • 1/3 tsp Salt
  • 3 tbsp Sesame oil
  • 2 tbsp Wasabi paste
  • 1 Egg, lightly beaten
  1. Preheat the oven to 160C/320F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Combine together ground buckwheat, ground walnuts, toasted sesame seeds, baking powder and salt in a mixing bowl.
  2. In another bowl, whisk together the sesame oil, wasabi paste and egg. Pour the oil mixture to the flour mixture. Mix until a dough forms.
  3. Place the dough between two sheets of parchment papers and roll out to a rectangle approximately 2mm thick. With a sharp knife, cut into 2-inch squares or cut out with a round cookie cutter and place each one on the prepared baking sheet. Bake 30 minutes until firm and crisp. Turn off the oven and leave crackers in the oven for 30 minutes before transfering them to the wire racks to cool.

Great looking crackers and I can imagine how buckwheat would make it all the more crisp. I bake crackers with all kind of flours but never tried with buckwheat..great idea.

Tina 2/2/12 20:13

These crackers do look tasty as well as healthy. I have only made pancakes with buckwheat, but this post does inspire-especially with the cost of good grain crackers! Homemade I am sure is better all the way around. I like the ground walnuts in these also. Yum!

Ivy 3/2/12 07:31

The crackers look so good. Although I've had a bad experience with wasabi and said I would not eat it again, yet they seem so tempting and the 2 tbsp may not have a lot of heat.

Sounds very interesting! I'll have to try this. What did you use to grind the buckwheat? Would a food processor work?

[Reply]

I definitely want to bookmark this delicious crackers as there is wasabi added in it :)

[Reply]
Angie's Recipes 3/2/12 16:40

@avocadopesto I have a grain mill at home, but a coffee grinder would work too.

I do like sesame crackers - but adding the wasabi - now that's inspiring.

[Reply]
SavoringTime in the Kitchen 4/2/12 00:19

The wasabi must give these wonderful crackers a delicious 'kick'! As usual, this sounds like a great recipe.

[Reply]
Lizzy 4/2/12 02:09

Mmmmmm...these look so healthy and delicious, Angie! I'd probably spoil it by sandwiching a couple around a not so healthy slice of cheese. But it would taste heavenly :) Have a great weekend~

Wow loving this recipe cos it's gluten free. Do you grind the buckwheat and walnut with food processor?

[Reply]
Betty 5/2/12 17:32

Confession: I've never made crackers before. These sound particularly good to me because I am a real fan of wasabi! :) We are growing buckwheat this year for our bees, so I'm definitely going to be trying these!

FOODESSA 15/2/12 23:45

Hi Angie...just wanted to let you know that my friend had asked me for a buckwheat flour cracker recipe...and guess where I landed? How small our world is.
I'll be trying this out as well...Dijon will probably replace the wasabi for me...personally not a fan.

Thanks again,
Claudia

Donna 2/3/12 12:50

Bonafide fan...bonafide subscriber/follower ...thank you for sharing your culinary savvy with all of us!...

I cannot wait to try this "craving-of-crunch-satisfying" yet gluten-free cracker! It's just what I have been waiting for..Two questions...Could I possibly use hazelnuts instead of walnuts (due to allergy)..and could I somehow use wasabi powder (on hand in the pantry) instead of wasabi paste? Should the quantities of other ingredients be adjusted? Thanks so much!

[Reply]
Angie's Recipes 2/3/12 20:39

@DonnaHazelnut would be fine too.
Wasabi powder should not be a problem, but you might have to experiment with it.

[Reply]
Geni 31/3/12 18:02
