Sourdough Discard Crackers

Sharing is caring!

Sourdough discard crackers are thin, crispy and have that awesome sourdough tang that we have all come to know and love.

A lot of people throw away their sourdough discard, but after you taste these addictive crunchy crackers you will never throw it out again!

Using my sourdough starter to make a ton of sourdough discard recipes is one of my favorite things to do. There are endless recipes out there and so many ways to use them. My newest way are these delicious crackers.

What is Discard?

I get asked this question a lot — “what is discard?” Discard is the amount of starter that is left after feeding your starter. You have to pour some out in order to feed your starter. Many people just toss this out, however, I keep mine in the fridge to make other recipes with! 

One of my husband's favorite recipes I make with the discard is these Sourdough Discard Dinner Rolls.
