Mixed Seed Crackers

In Recipes, Snacks by Muriel3 Comments

When it comes to crackers and other carriers for avo or hummus, there are options in the supermarkets, but they’re often either not vegan-friendly, or very processed, or very expensive. So in that context, these seed crackers are a blessing: they’re really (really!) easy to make, very nutritious (high protein, good fats—but go easy on them), and easily adaptable to use different seeds and spices.

Here I’ve used a mix of half whole flaxseeds, half ground flaxseeds, and other seeds; but you can also just use flaxseeds (whole or ground). Normally when I use flaxseeds as-is in a recipe, I use them ground, since our digestive system won’t dissolve the hard outer shell. But if you soak them and/or cook them, the shells become more digestible.

This recipe is pretty forgiving, as long as you stick with flaxseed as a base: soaking the flax in water creates a gummy mixture that does a great job of binding everything together; from there, you can add other seeds (or not) and spices of your choice. In this case, I’ve used a mix of chia seeds (also good to soak first), sesame seeds and pumpkin seeds, with a generous dose of the Middle Eastern spice mix za’atar, some paprika and a dash of salt.
