Simple Seed Crackers

Can’t do grains? Don’t want to have to make crispy seeds BEFORE you make crackers? This recipe starts with wet soaked seeds instead of dehydrated crispy seeds!

You will need:

1 cup sesame seeds
1 cup sunflower seeds
2 tsp salt (each added at different times)
2 Tbsp ground flax

Step 1: Soak 1 cup sesame seeds with 1 cup sunflower seeds and 1 tsp salt for 4 hours or overnight.

Step 2: Drain seeds in a colander.

Step 3: Put in a food processor and blend with 1 tsp salt plus 2 Tbsp ground flax. Process until it has the consistency of dough.

Step 4: Press the dough out with your fingers onto some wax or parchment paper, smooth out with a silicone spatula or put another piece of parchment paper on top and smooth with a rolling pin (the dough between the two pieces of parchment paper). Roll out thinner for a crisp cracker.

Step 5: Cut in triangles or squares with a pizza roller or other knife and then prick three lines of wholes on each cracker (think premium plus) and then sprinkle with unrefined  salt.

Step 6: Bake in the oven @ 350 degrees for anywhere from 20 min to 40 minutes (depending on the thickness).You will know they are done when you can easily pull them off the paper without splitting them in half. Because some will naturally be thicker than others, I typically pull some off and then put the rest back in the oven to finish. You can also enjoy them raw by dehydrating in a food dehydrator!

Variations:

Add fresh garlic, fresh herbs, parmesan or other cheese or nutritional yeast (of which you might have to add some water)!
