- 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
- 2 tablespoons garbanzo bean (chickpea) flour
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1/2 cup hummus (store-bought or [url href="http://www.vegkitchen.com/recipes/classic-hummus-with-variations/" target="_blank"]homemade[/url])
- Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
- Line a baking sheet with a silpat or parchment paper.
- In a medium bowl, thoroughly cream all of the ingredients together to create a smooth, cohesive ball of dough with a large spoon or a wide spatula.
- Lightly flour a clean surface, roll out the dough to about 1/4 inch thickness and prick it all over with a fork. Cut the dough into equally sized strips, about 1 inch wide and 3 inches long, and lay them on the baking sheet.
- Bake for 20 to 30 minutes, until lightly browned on the edges. Allow to cool completely, then transfer to a platter to serve.
- Or, if not serving immediately, serve in an airtight container. Covered, these can stand at room temperature in a cool kitchen for a couple of days. Otherwise, store in the refrigerator, where they’ll keep for quite a while.
