May is just around the corner and it snowed here in Denmark last night. What is that all about? Well, good that I have the sun shining in my heart. I am working on some exciting project at the moment and no snow can stop my enthusiasm and positivity this time.
Luckily, before I went to bed last night I decided to make some crackers and get them “baked” in my dehydrator, while I slept. It took me maybe 15 minutes to make the recipe and another 5 minutes to get them on a dehydrator sheet. However, this flax seed crackers recipe is not only for them that have dehydrator, because you can just bake it in your oven. I was so happy this morning to get my “still a little” warm crackers for breakfast.
Seed crackers like these can be made in many different ways, as plain crackers or with more taste to them, like onion, cinnamon or rosmarin. They are gluten free and can be made easily without any sugar.
Enjoy them on their own, with a toppings or dip them into a good hummus.
Flax Seed Crackers Ingredients:
- 1,5 dl flax seeds
- 1 dl chia seeds
- 2 dl water
- 1/2 tsp. maple syrup
- ½ dl sunflower seeds
- 1,5 dl pumpkin seeds
- 1 dl sesame seeds
- 1 tsp salt
- 3 tsp your favorite seasoning (for example garlic salt and ground rosemary, but this time I used organic sprinkle from Bragg)
Sprinkle on top:
- Nutritional Yeast (optional)
- Start by soaking the flax seeds and chia seeds in the water while you find and mix the other ingredients in a bowl.
- Then I mixed the flax seeds, chia seeds and water together with a hand blender, before I added it with the other ingredients, but that is not necessary.
- Mix everything together and stir together with a spoon.
- Spread the mixture evenly, about 0,5 cm thick, onto a parchment or silicone lined baking sheet or if you are dehydrating on a dehydrator seed.
- Use a knife to score the crackers in the size and shape you want them (This will make it easier to break them in your choice of cracker form when they are ready).
- If you like you can sprinkle the crackers with nutritional yeast. It gives the crackers a bit of a cheesy flavor to them.
- Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius (400 Fahrenheit) and bake for around 20 – 30 minutes.
- The dehydrating process takes around 8 hours, depending on your dehydrator.
