One of my fondest memories as a child is eating toast with butter and cinnamon sugar at my grandparents house.

It forever solidified my adoration for all things cinnamon sugar. My grandma even had this fun little cinnamon sugar shaker that we loved to use. It looks like a little man… and now that sounds creepy.


These days, I’m satisfied with cinnamon sugar in a bowl.

Ever since I made easy, cheesy whole wheat crackers a few months ago, I’ve been anxious to try some other versions. Next came everything flatbreads which are some of my favorites. But I thought it was time to sweeten things up a bit.


You know, since I haven’t done that in a while.

Plus, these are just too easy! You can make them from start to finish in 20 minutes and they make an excellent snack. You can eat them in less than 20 minutes too.

Trust me.


And you can make little square crackers or longer flatbreads. I’m all about the flatbreads. They are a perfect vehicle for more deliciousness.

I obviously had to add some “butter” to my crackers, after discovering that I’m the only one on Earth who found that strange. Mother Lovett would be proud, but is probably scolding me from up above that it’s not actual butter.

I made a big batch of these last weekend and we had them to snack on all week. Topped with peanut butter and bananas, or jelly, or cream cheese, or fruit salsa, or even a little slice of cheese. You know I love my sweet and salty.


And I should mention that I don’t do “little” slices of cheese.

Cinnamon Sugar Flatbread Crackers

makes a bunch

1 cup all purpose flour

3/4 cup whole wheat pastry flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons warm water

1/4 cup olive oil

2 tablespoons sugar + 3/4 tablespoon cinnamon for sprinkling

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Combine flours, baking soda, salt and cinnamon in a bowl and mix well. Add water and olive oil and mix until a dough forms, using your hands at the end. Form it into a bowl.

Dust a baking sheet with flour and roll the dough as thin as you can with a rolling pin. Sprinkle cinnamon sugar mixture all over top and cut with a pizza slicer into small or large crackers. Bake for 10 minutes, or until golden and crisp. Let cool completely.

I’m thinking I should have topped the peanut butter one with bacon. Next time!

    I also used to adore cinnamon & sugar toast – why haven’t I made that in the past 20 years?! These crackers look fantastic – especially with peanut butter smeared over the top! I bet they’re even better than my favorite cinnamon & sugar pita chips.

    Cinnamon sugar on buttered toast was one of my favorite breakfasts as a kid!! I’m not sure why I ever stopped eating it now that I think of it…. I can’t wait to make these….I’ve never tried making my own crackers but these definitely got my attention.

    True story: I used to work at a cafe that had cinnamon toast on the breakfast menu. However, the Australia owner thought that this meant toast, butter, and cinnamon. No sugar.

    I always pitied the poor customers who ordered it, not realising the savoury “treat” they were about to get…
