Cranberry & Hazelnut Raincoast Amish Friendship Bread Crisps
These cranberry and hazelnut raincoat Amish Friendship Bread crisps make a great appetizer or healthy and nutty treat.
- 2 cups flour
- 2 teaspoons baking soda
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 1 cup Amish Friendship Bread Starter
- 1½ cups buttermilk
- ¼ cup brown sugar
- ¼ cup honey
- ½ cup sunflower seeds
- ¼ cup sesame seeds
- ¼ cup flax seeds
- 1 cup dried cranberries
- ½ cup hazelnuts chopped
- Preheat oven to 350° F (177° C).
- In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking soda and salt.
- Stir in the starter, buttermilk and honey.
- Add in the remainder of the ingredients and stir until just blended.
- Grease two 8 x 4 loaf pans.
- Pour in the batter.
- Bake for about 35 minutes, until golden and springy to touch. Remove from pans and cool on wire rack.
- The cooler the bread, the easier to slice really thin (leave it till the next day or pop it into the freezer for partial freeze).
- Slice the loaves as thin as you can and place them in a single layer on an ungreased sheet.
- Reduce oven to 300° F (148° C).
- Bake slices for about 15 minutes, then flip them over and bake for an addition 10 minutes, until they become crisp and deep golden.
- Let cool slightly and enjoy!
Use a sharp, serrated knife works to slice the loaf. The end product definitely looks rustic and not necessarily neat and pretty but they taste amazing! For the perfect appetizer, serve with a dab of sweet red pepper jelly, or some soft creamy cheese.

These sound marvelous, much like a biscotti. Can’t wait to try them – going to run up to Whole Foods now and buy some hazelnuts and flax seed.
The photo appears to be comparing a cracker to a toasted slice of this bread. After reading this recipe, though, I’m thinking I’m going to try spreading out the batter on parchment lined sheet trays. May have to add a crispening agent.
This recipe looks so yummy~ I love these crackers and I cannot wait to make them! The only place I can buy them is at whole foods and we don’t have a store where I live ,so I buy them when we visit our daughter. They also cost 8 or 9 dollars per box-pricey!– so if I can make these – yippee!
