Super Seed Crackers

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!

Ingredients:

  • 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

Directions: 

  1. Preheat the oven to 325ºF. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together chia seeds, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds and sesame seeds.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Sprinkle Herbamare and kelp granules on top.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. Store in an airtight container or jar on the counter for up to 2 weeks.
