Daring Bakers September Challenge - Lavash

Daring Bakers go vegan and/or gluten free this month! September's challenge was hosted by Shel of Musings From The Fishbowl and Natalie of Gluten A Go-Go. The challenge was to make lavash crackers. We had the freedom to make savory or sweet crackers and we also had to make a vegan AND gluten free dip to go with it. Ah... the possibilities are endless.


I have never made crackers nor even considered making crackers at home so I was excited to give it a go. The recipe was easy to make and wasn't all that time consuming (which gave me the time to complete 3 past DB challenges this month - posts coming in the next 2 days). I think I could've rolled the dough thinner to get a crisper cracker, but I liked how it was kind of pita-ish. Definately yummy!

I chose to make two different kinds of crackers; half topped with cinnamon-sugar and the other topped with sesame seeds. The cinnamon-sugar crackers were served by themselves and were AWESOME! I made a savory pumpkin dip to go with the sesame ones. I enjoyed the sesame crackers, but the dip wasn't my favorite. I don't think I am a savory pumpkin person.



So, I came up with a better idea... Sandwich the crackers together with peanut butter. Mmmmmmm!!!



Don't forget to check out the DB blogroll to see the other creations which are likely much more creative than mine! Oh, and the recipe can be found at the hosts' blogs!

I thought about the cinnamon sugar topping but decided to forgo because I just knew I would not stop eating them until I had eaten the entire batch!

Peanut butter between sounds yummy too!

These look great! Nice work! Thanks so much for the croissants and chicken salad. It is amazing! I especially loved the chocolate croissants, but that is no big surprise. It was really sweet of you to send me home with dinner. You didn't have to do that, but I really appreciate it. I hope that you have a good weekend (or a remainder of a weekend) and I look forward to seeing you guys soon!
