1. Preheat oven to 375 - 400 degrees F. 2. Combine dry ingredients (including spices of choice) in a large bowl 3. Add the wet ingredients to the dry mix bowl, and mix until combined. The dough will be a tad sticky. 4. Sprinkle parchment paper with some flour and roll out the dough with a rolling pin. 5. Roll it out very thin, trying to make it as even as possible, and then cut it into cracker sizes. 6. Place on a baking sheet, and bake for 18-25 minutes, flipping half-way, and baking until they start to brown just a little bit. Let cool.
**In regard to the choice of flours, try Bob's Red Mill whole grain flours, such as Kamut, Triticale, White Wheat, Barley, Oat, Spelt, or gluten-free flours like Teff, Buckwheat, Sorghum, Amaranth, or Millet. Each grain gives a unique flavor, so we enjoy trying different flours to get different flavors, such as nuttier or butterier or wheatier flavor...

Update 8/24/09: Thanks for all the great comments and ideas. Cornmeal would be a nice addition for flavor and crunch. Adding some oat bran, wheat germ, or flaxmeal would also be a healthy addition. And more flavors we thought of - cinnamon or spiced cracker, spicy Mexican cracker, or chocolate cracker!
