Easy Seed Crackers
Updated: Jul 14, 2019
Entertaining and snacking are two of the danger zones for straying from the path of shunning processed food, gluten and grains in the journey of healing.
Here is a simple Seed Cracker recipe which is quick, crunchy, filling, low carb and full of satisfying fats and protein. Best of all they have some serious CRUNCH factor, and a hidden ingredient for healing gut issues!
Makes about 40 crackers
Prep 20 mins
Cooking 25 mins
1 cup whole flax seed
1 cup milled flax seed (flax meal)
1 cup of chia seeds
1/3 cup sesame seeds
1/3 cup sunflower seeds
1/3 cup pepitas (pumpkin seeds)
1/2 tsp salt
1 3/4 cups of liquid - I use 50/50 water and bone broth for extra help with gut healing
Options: Ground salt to top, roasted garlic, turmeric, harissa, roasted rosemary, poppy seeds, almond meal instead of flax meal, pureed pumpkin with less liquid.
Preheat oven to 180C
Soak flax seed and chia seed in liquid for 15 minutes, stir in the rest of the ingredients.
On a piece of baking paper, turn out half the mix, spread evenly with a spoon to fit your tray. Wt the back of a spoon and spread as thin as you can or use a rolling pin to about 1/4 cm thick. Remove the top layer of paper. Score to the size you want the crackers if you prefer a more even shape, a pizza cutter works for this, otherwise just free style once cooked.
Move to the tray on the baking paper and bake for about 25mins or until the cracker make a hollow tapping sound. Turn out on the sheet and repeat with the rest of the mix. Give it 10 mins to cook then break apart, they should be crisp and break easily.
If they are still a bit soft give them longer. Break apart and once cooled keep in an airtight container.
Serve with: Pate, guacamole, tsatziki, hummus, cheese, salsa, themselves :)
