    Recipe by Nel Smit.


    Combine all dry ingredients, stirring well. Whisk maple syrup, oil and water together.


    Add to the dry ingredients. Mix very well until everything is completely soaked and dough becomes very thick (if the dough is too thick to stir, add a little water until the dough is manageable).


    Add any flavouring you like (eg figs and star anise, or rosemary, pepper and smoked salt).


    Gather dough into a ball and place it between two sheets of baking paper. Using a rolling pin, firmly roll out into a thin sheets.


    Remove top layer of baking paper and using the tip of a knife score the dough into shapes, rectangles or triangles. Let sit ou on the counter for a least 2 hours, or all day or overnight.


    Preheat oven to 175 degrees celsius. Using the baking paper, slide the dough onto a cookie sheet and bake for 20 minutes.


    Remove cookie sheet from oven, flip the whole cracker over (if it breaks a bit, don't worry) and peel the baking paper off of the back. Return to oven to bake for another 10 minutes, until fully dry, crisp, and golden around the edges.


    Let cool completely, then break crackers along their scored lines and store in an airtight container for up to 3 weeks.
