Not only are these easy seed crackers a great whole food and low carb alternative to your standard packet crackers, but they’re extremely nutrient dense too! They contain two of the richest plant sources of omega-3 - chia seeds and flaxseeds; and a high amount of fibre from pysilium husk and chia seeds. unlike many other seed crackers recipes, these don't require a dehydrator!

EASY SEED CRACKERS
Makes one tray of crackers
½ cup chia seeds
½ cup flaxseeds
½ cup pumpkin seeds
½ cup sesame seeds
1 cup water
1 Tbsp psylium husk
Salt and pepper
1 Pre-heat oven to 200 degrees.
2. Add all dry ingredients to a bowl, then add the water. Stir through and let sit for 10-15 minutes until all the water has been absorbed.
3. Line a tray with baking paper and spray with olive oil.
4. Pour seed mixture onto the baking tray and flatten out with a spatular. Try to get it as thin as possible!
5. Bake for 25minutes.
6. Remove and cut the sheet into cracker size pieces with a knife. Then place back into the oven on a low heat (50 degrees) for another 25 minutes, or longer, to get them extra crunchy. Season with lots of salt!
