Pine Bark Bread Crackers

Pine Bark Bread (with outer bark)

This recipe for pine bark bread comes from Sweden and uses the outer bark of a pine tree ground into a fine flour.  The resulting bread is more like what most people would consider crackers.


  • 7/8 cup Pine Bark Flour 200ml
  • 3 3/4 cup whole wheat flour 900ml
  • 1 tsp salt 5ml
  • 1 3/4 cup cold water 400 ml


  1. Preheat oven to as hot as it goes, around 500 degrees for mine.

  2. Mix all ingredients to form a dough.  Adjust with more water or flour if it is either too sticky or dry.

  3. Roll the bark flour cracker dough into very thin sheets and prick it every inch or so with a fork.  Cut it into bite-sized pieces and place them on an oiled baking sheet.
  4. Bake for about 3 minutes, turning the sheets halfway through.  When the crackers come out of the oven they'll have a soft texture, but they'll be crisp once they cool.
