Banana Crackers

Today I was  I was lucky enough to spend the day with a great 2 yr old!  What better fun than playing with real dough than cooking it up into a tasty snack!
Banana Crackers
      2 cup  Whole Wheat flour
    1/4 tsp Salt
    1/8 tsp Baking soda
      6 tbls Apple sauce
   2/3 cup  Mashed banana (1 large)
      2 tbls Honey
      2 tbls Warm water
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Combine the flour, salt, and baking soda in a large bowl; stir in the apple sauce until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Add the banana and blend well.

In a separate bowl, dissolve the honey in the warm water.

Slowly add the honey/water to the flour/banana mixture and blend to form a dough that will hold together in a ball.
Divide the dough into 2 equal portions and roll the dough thinly.

Cut out squares or shapes using a cookie cutter.

Arrange crackers on a lightly greased cookie sheet.  Or use your silicone mat.
Prick each cracker in 2 or 3 places with the tines of a fork.

Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, turning over once during baking. These crackers should be medium brown.  Cool on a rack.

I love the idea of putting banana in crackers. I'll have to try this with my little ones. Thanks for posting.
