I am looking for a recipe for crackers that would be similar to the Leslie Stowe Fine Foods Raincoast Crisps - these may be only available in Canada, but are delicious and come in a variety of flavours, like Canberry/Hazelnut, and Fig/Olive (see http://www.lesleystowe.com/raincoast.htm ) .
They don't have to be an exact match (a basic recipe would be much appreciated), I'm just not having any luck finding anything online.
Thanks in advance.

Here's the recipe a friend passed along to me, which I have slightly modified. It is as far as I can tell, a very accurate reproduction of the originals. Very addictive, enjoy:
2 cups flour (I use 1/2 whole wheat pastry)
2 tsp baking soda
1(generous) tsp salt
2 cups buttermilk (or just plain milk soured with vinegar--I successfully subbed used soymilk)
1/4 cup honey
Stir the above ingredients together until blended. Don't overmix!
1 cup raisins (or dried cranberries)
1/2 cup chopped nuts (pecans/walnuts/almonds)
1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
1/4 cup flax seeds (ground or whole)
1/4 cup Sesame seeds
1 tbsp fresh rosemary chopped (or more, or dry would also work, adjust proportion to taste)
Pour into two 4"X8" greased pans. Bake 45 minutes at 350 degrees F or until springy. Cool completely on rack and put in the freezer (I put them in the freezer while they were still pretty warm, no big deal). When the loaves are totally frozen, cut into very thin slices. Lay slices on cookie sheets and bake 15 minutes at 300 deg. F. Turn the slices over and bake another 10 or 15 minutes.
I have a cookbook that duplicates the Leslie Stowe Rainforest Crisp recipe.... excellent cookbook and really reasonable price. You should be able to find it at Book Warehouse (I got one for a friend). Problem is I'm not at home and I don't remember the name right now... I'll post it this weekend.
