This post is part of the August Recipe Redux. This month’s theme is healthy crunchy snacks! I was so excited when I saw the theme for this month, because I love crunchy food! I don’t know how to enjoy a meal if it doesn’t have a crunchy component. That brings us to my crispy, crunchy snack:
Everything Bagel Whole Wheat Crackers!
Everything bagel seasoning seems to be all the rage lately. And for good reason! You can sprinkle a bit of this seasoning on a variety of savory dishes to amp up the flavor: avocado pesto, roasted veggies, vegan mac and cheese. Why not try out the seasoning in whole wheat crackers?
Here’s what makes everything bagel seasoning so flavor packed:
- poppy seeds
- white sesame seeds
- black sesame seeds
- sea salt
You can make your own everything bagel seasoning, or you can check out Trader Joe’s “Everything But the Bagel” seasoning, which is what I used in this recipe.

Quick and healthy homemade whole wheat crackers that use everything bagel seasoning.
- 1 and 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
- 1 and 1/2 tablespoons everything bagel seasoning
- 5 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- 4 to 5 tablespoons water, as needed
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a large sheet pan with parchment paper.

Baking 15 to 20 minutes, or until lightly browned. Smaller crackers will be done more quickly than regular sized crackers- be sure to check on them frequently to avoid burning! Remove from oven and allow to cool on racks.
