The other day I was brainstorming and researching ideas for a recipe that would be a healthy snack option. I was looking through a website of a favourite food blogger of mine, Oh She Glows, and came across this absolutely perfected recipe – Endurance Crackers!
These super seed crackers are great for when you’re on the go and are in need of a little boost of energy. They are also low in carbs so they are a great snack alternative for t1d’s. Bonus points for those who have nut allergies or who are vegan or gluten-free as these crackers contain no nuts, dairy or gluten!
Add them to your salad for some extra crunch or grab a bowl of guacamole or hummus and dip away!
- 1/2 cup Chia Seeds
- 1/2 cup Sunflower Seeds
- 1/2 cup Pumpkin Seeds
- 1/2 cup Sesame Seeds
- 1 cup Water
- ½ tsp. Minced Garlic
- ½ tsp. Herbamare
- ½ tsp. Kelp Granules
- Preheat the oven to 325ºF. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- In a large bowl, mix together chia seeds, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds and sesame seeds.
- Add the water and garlic to the seed mixture and combine well. Allow this mixture to sit for 2 minutes. After the 2 minutes there should no longer be any water at the bottom of the bowl as the chia seeds will have absorbed it.
- Spread the mixture onto the baking sheet dividing it into two rectangles, about 12 by 7 inches each and 1/8 to 1/4 inch thick.
- Sprinkle Herbamare and kelp granules on top.
- Bake for 35 minutes. Remove from oven and carefully flip each rectangle with a spatula. Bake for another 25 to 35 minutes more, until lightly golden around the edges. Watch closely near the end to make sure they don’t burn.
- Let cool for 10 to 15 minutes on the pan and then break the rectangles into crackers and let cool completely on the pan. I used a large knife to cut the crackers to make even sized rectangles.
- Store in an airtight container or jar on the counter for up to 2 weeks.
