Sesame and oregano lavosh crackers

These tasty little bickies are a very fun cooking project for kids. Kids love rolling out the dough and cutting it into shapes to bake, will keep them engaged for hours… well at least 10 minutes. I will try them soon with bacon, different cheese, herbs and spices. They are great for kids lunch boxes and snacks. Also great for adults to serve with your favourite cheeses and dips and super easy.
2/3 cup wholemeal flour
2/3 cup plain flour
4 tablespoon sesame seeds
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon sesame oil
½ cup warm water
Topping for baking: Olive oil and sea salt
Turn oven on to 170 C.
Mix all ingredients in the Thermomix knead for 2 minutes or mix in the blender or mixer until it is a smooth dough. Rest for 10 minutes and roll out to 3-4 ml, you can do this through the pasta maker and cut into shapes, brush with olive oil and sprinkle with sea salt, and bake until golden brown and cooked through.
