5 Ingredient, 5 Step Seed Crackers

Have you ever seen those recipes for crackers that seem amazing, but in reality are a pain to prepare and you think ‘ain’t nobody got time for that’? Yeah, me too. I simplified a few recipes to make this one quick and easy, anyone could do it. Hello, healthy crackers!

These crackers took about 5 minutes to make, 40 minutes to bake and in that time I had also whipped up some gorgeous dips and cleaned my kitchen! Productive day, and so rewarding to pull some crunchy, nutritious home-made crackers out of the oven. I felt like Superwoman.

They are nut free, gluten free, dairy free and would be perfect to serve up at a dinner party or a BBQ. I flavoured my crackers with 1 teaspoon each of cumin and paprika. You could use whatever herbs and spices you wanted to make these lovely crackers your own.

Ingredients

1/2 cup chia seeds

1/2 cup flax seeds

1/2 cup pepitas (pumpkin seeds)

1/2 cup sunflower seeds

1 tsp of salt in 1 cup water

Instructions

Step 1: In a blender, blitz sunflower seeds and pepitas until they are crushed into small pieces. Don’t go past this point, or they will turn to mush.

Step 2: In a bowl, add chia seeds, flax seeds and the blitzed seed mix from the blender. Add the salt to the water now.

Step 3: Add water to the seed mix, and allow to sit for a few minutes, stirring every now and then until the water has absorbed.

Step 4: Line a baking tray with baking paper, and place the mixture in the middle. Get another piece of baking paper, place it on top of the mix and use your hands to spread the mix evenly over the tray.

Step 5: Pop it in the oven, at 180 degrees Celsius and bake for 40 minutes. Allow to cool before cutting into pieces with a sharp knife.

Voila! You just made your own crackers. Kudos to you, my friends.
