The I-Can’t-Give-Up-Crackers Crackers Recipe

Multi Seed Vegan Crackers

So, I looked at the October Unprocessed challenge, and I’m thinking, no problem – I’ve got this one in the bag. I make almost all my food from scratch. Shop the perimeter of the store. Have a garden that I preserve and freeze from. I write a blog focused on clean eating, for crying out loud! But before I throw my shoulder out patting myself on the back, I have a dirty little secret.

I love crackers.

Now, not to say that all crackers are über-processed, but I’m thinking the majority of them wouldn’t pass the Kitchen Test. So if I was really going to embrace this month free of processed foods, I knew I was going to need crackers and I knew I was going to need to make them myself.

The results of this quest are these Multi-Seed Crackers – chocked full of whole foods thanks to October Unprocessed sponsor, Bob’s Red Mill. So simple to make and totally customizable, plus vegan and gluten-free to boot. They’re super on their own but it’s really a party when paired with dips like  No Bean Spiced Carrot Hummus or Edamame Miso Dip.

These crackers are so delicious and so addicting, you just may never need to buy crackers again!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup Flax seeds whole, raw
  • 1/2 cup Chia seeds whole
  • 1/2 cup Sunflower seeds raw
  • 1/2 cup Pumpkin seeds raw
  • 1/2 teaspoon Maldon sea salt
  • Your choice of seasonings such as black pepper, chili, onion or garlic powder, oregano, rosemary, or thyme

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. In a large bowl, mix all the ingredients together plus whatever additional seasonings you might want and stir until combined.
  3. Let sit 10 minutes to allow the flax and chia seeds to become somewhat gelatinous.
  4. Line a baking sheet with a piece of parchment and spray with cooking spray. Spread mixture out, pressing until the sheet is less than 1/4 inch thick.
  5. Bake for 30 minutes. Remove from oven and slice into crackers (a pizza cutter is super-handy).
  6. Carefully turn the crackers over and put them back in the oven for an additional 20-30 minutes.
  7. Stored in an air-tight container they will stay fresh for a week.

I love this recipe! I eat a measured portion of these everyday now, I usually add dried rosemary and garlic powder, this time I would like to make cheese flavour by using nutritional yeast, any suggestions on quantities please?

I was scared the recipe wouldnt work out but it did. I made them a week ago and I just finished my second batch tonight. I added 1/2 cup of sesame seeds to the mix ( because I bought too many and I wanted to use them in some thing.) It didnt change the consistency or crunch of the cracker. So good and good for you.

Love these crackers….I always have to add my twist to recipes…so I used 1 tsp Himalayan sea salt, 1 tsp ground rosemary and 1 tsp garlic powder. Next time, will add some pepper.

Thank you for the recipe, wonderful homemade crackers, no chemicals, no nasty packaging. I couldn’t resist and added a touch of parmesan cheese, deelicious!

So light and crunchy, each seed just pops in your mouth when you bite it, very satisfying. I added just cayenne pepper and salt in my first batch, they turned out so well.

Great whole foods ingredients! I will try this recipe in the dehydrator to keep everything raw, increase nutrition. I’m thinking about adding grated carrots, zucchini, red onion for a veggie version, citrus zest, finely chopped berries for a sweeter cracker.
