Easy Four-Seed Crackers


Easy Four-Seed Crackers

If you’re anything like me, sometimes you just need a little crunch factor in your life!  Whether it’s for scooping up your favorite dip or adding to a meat and cheese platter, crackers can be oh so delicious!  But lets be honest, packaged processed crackers are loaded with unhealthy ingredients.  Manufacturers try very hard to convince us otherwise.  Walk down the cracker aisle and you’ll see packaging with all the buzz words… all-natural, non-GMO, gluten-free or whole grain.  Don’t fall for it!  It’s important to always be a savvy shopper and read the ingredient lists!  Usually they contain unhealthy oils and flours (corn, soy, rice) along with other additives and sugars!  These crackers have none of that and are so delicious and crunchy.   BONUS…you will be amazed at how easy they are to make!

 

Ingredients:

  • 1/3 cup pumpkin seeds
  • 1/3 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1/3 cup chia seeds
  • 1/3 cup sesame seeds or hemp seeds
  • 1/3 cup almond flour
  • 1 Tbsp psyllium husk (can find this on Amazon)
  • 3 Tbsp Everything Salt (I get this at Trader Joe’s)
  • 2 Tbsp coconut oil (melted)
  • 1 cup boiling water

 

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
  2. Line a large sheet pan with parchment paper and set aside.
  3. Mix all dry ingredients in a mixing bowl.  I use a whisk to make sure everything is well incorporated and that there are no lumps from the flour.
  4. Add coconut oil and boiling water and stir.  Continue to stir until mixture thickens.
  5. Spread mixture evenly onto parchment lined pan with spatula.  Continue to work around pan to get a desired and consistent thickness.
  6. Bake on lower rack for 45- 60 minutes.  (This will also depend on how brown and crispy you like your crackers.)
  7. Turn oven off and allow crackers to dry for an additional 15 minutes.  Watch carefully.  Seeds can burn quickly.
  8. Remove from the oven.  When crackers are cooled, break into pieces according to size preference.  They will most likely break unevenly but I think that makes them more interesting.
  9. Enjoy!
