Simple Seedy Crackers

I can't believe how simple and quick these crackers are.

And they are delicious.

Even better when I found this recipe I had all the ingredients in my pantry, courtesy my home made granola ingredient store.

The good news too is they have no extra oil added or flour or sugar, so they are really and healthy and a good choice for those with allergies and intolerances such as flour, nuts or soy.


1/2 cup chia seeds
1/2 cup sesame seeds
1/2 cup pepitas
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1 Tbsp flax/linseed
1 Tbsp poppy seeds
1 cup water
1 clove garlic
1/2 tsp salt

Mix dry ingredients (including garlic) together in a bowl and then add water.
Stir and then leave to sit for two minutes while the chia seeds absorb the water.
This will bind the mixture.

Transfer mixture to baking sheets lined with non stick baking paper.

Thin out to 1/4 inch or thinner even thickness and then score with pizza cutter or knife into cracker shapes.

Cook at 160 degrees Celcius for 30 minutes. Take them out and flip them over to cook the bottoms, about ten minutes, until they're crisp and golden.

So simple, so delicious. I'm going to experiment more with these and try some flavourings, I read somewhere about including japanese kelp flakes, and we have sushi seasoning packs which would be delicious in these, or perhaps some chilli flakes, paprika, italian herbs... the possibilities are endless. I might add a bit more garlic on my next try too.

I've adapted my version of the recipe from this one here: by adding some other seeds I had on hand.
