Cinnamon Spelt Crackers

I try to stay away from store-bought crackers when I can, too.
(though I'm not as good with the latter...)

These turned out to be simple enough and totally delicious.
And guess what? In these cinnamon spelt crackers, 
you'll find answers to all of life's questions.

...well, mostly just the "What do I feed my kid for a snack today?" question.

...which can be one of life's most perplexing questions, if you ask me.
Anyway, my little guy loved this particular answer.  So did his daddy.

Take a bite and discover for yourself. :)

Cinnamon Spelt Crackers
Yield: About 40 1x2-in crackers

1 cup spelt flour (or whole wheat if you can't find spelt--I find mine in the bulk section)
1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
1/2 cup almond meal or almond flour (or more whole wheat flour)
1 Tbsp ground flax seed (optional)
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
2 Tbsp raw sugar
5 Tbsp cold butter, cut into 8-10 cubes
scant 1/3 cup milk
(+ more flour for rolling out the dough)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

In a stand mixer, crush the oats with the paddle attachment at medium speed for 3-5 minutes.

Add remaining ingredients, except the butter and milk, to the bowl and blend well.  Add butter cubes and mix on low speed until butter is mostly incorporated with some small chunks.  Keep mixer on low and drizzle the milk in.  Keep mixing for about 20 seconds until large chunks begin to form.  If it isn't clumping up well, add 1-2 Tbsp of milk.  If it sticks to the sides, add more spelt flour.

Remove the dough and form into a ball.  Divide it in half.  On a lightly floured surface, flatten each half into a rectangle and roll out to a 1/4-inch thickness (sprinkle flour on top of the dough if it sticks).

Using a knife or pizza cutter, cut the dough into squares (or you can use small cookie cutters).  Place on a greased or parchment-lined baking sheet (they don't expand a lot so they can be placed close to each other) and bake for 10-12 minutes; until bottoms are golden brown.
