Copycat Raincoast Crisp Crackers

By Sue Moran (The View From Great Island)
Prep Time 10 mins
Cook Time 1 hr
Total Time 1 hr 10 mins


  • 4 Mini loaf pans


Dry Ingredients

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup bread flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 cup golden flax seeds
  • 1/4 cup pepitas
  • 1/4 cup sesame seeds
  • 1/4 cup sunflower seed kernels
  • 1 cup assorted dried fruit I used chopped apricots, dates, cranberries, currants.
  • 1 cup assorted nuts I used whole hazelnuts, whole pistachios, whole almonds.

Wet Ingredients

  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup honey


  • Preheat oven to 350F. Lightly butter or spray 4 mini loaf pans.
  • Toss the dry ingredients together in a large mixing bowl.
  • Add the buttermilk and honey to the bowl and stir until everything is well combined. Note: the batter will be thin.
  • Fill your 4 loaf pans evenly. Bake for about 30 minutes, or until golden on top and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out without wet batter clinging to it.
  • Let cool briefly in the pans before turning out onto a rack to cool completely.
  • Wrap the completely cooled loaves in plastic or foil and put in the freezer for at least 2 hours, or until nice and firm. Note: it’s important that the loaves be completely cool before you put them in the freezer.
  • Preheat the oven to 300F.
  • Slice the partially frozen loaves as thinly as you can. You should get anywhere from 20-30 slices from each loaf.
  • Put the slices in a single layer on a dry baking sheet (you can fit them closely together) and bake for 15 minutes on one side, then flip for another 15 minutes. Note: depending on the thickness of your crackers they could take a little more or a little less time. Watch carefully so that they don’t burn.


  • If using larger dried fruits like apricots or figs, be sure to cut them in smaller pieces.
  • If you don’t have buttermilk you can make a substitute using whole milk and a tablespoon of lemon juice. Mix them together and let sit on the counter for 15 minutes before using.
Other ingredients to use:
  • fresh or dried herbs
  • grated aged cheeses
  • different whole grain flours like buckwheat or rye
  • rolled oats
