Gluten-free rolled oats and various seeds easily create a lovely, healthy, homemade crispbread. Follow my success-guaranteed recipe with essential tips to make the best seed crackers.
Seed crackers are not only super delicious and easy but also really healthy. Seeds contain, among other health benefits, vital omega-3 fatty acids, and slowly absorbed carbohydrates. Plenty of fiber in oats help keep your blood sugar levels steady. In addition, multi-seed crackers are high in protein.
Gluten-free oat and seed crackers are made from just a few ingredients, simply mixing them and waiting for a while before baking the crackers crisp in the oven.
Always choose gluten-free oatmeal for gluten-free pastries. Oats are naturally gluten-free, but they are often grown and processed in the same fields and production facilities as wheat and are no longer gluten-free. So check always check the packaging carefully to be sure you have chosen truly gluten-free oats.
Old-fashioned rolled oats are usually the best option, but quick oatmeal works well in crispbread. Steel-cut oats can’t be used for baking crackers.
A mix of different seeds makes the best crackers. You can choose any of your favorite seeds, even just one kind, as long as the total quantity of seeds remains the same as the recipe.
It is good to have some chia seeds or flax seeds in the mix as they help to bind the ingredients together.
You can add more fiber mixture or psyllium to the dough to improve the nutritional value. This is totally optional, and your crispbread will be as healthy without added fiber.
Making these crackers
- Mix all the ingredients in a bowl and let them sit for half an hour.
- After the wait, spread the ingredients on a parchment paper-lined baking tray.
- Important! Brush the paper with olive oil or spray it. Otherwise, there is a good chance you’ll be earing the crackers with the parchment paper as the paper might stick even if the paper you use is labeled non-stick.
- If it feels tricky to spread the seed cracker dough to the baking paper, you can take another sheet and press or roll the dough between the papers.
- Mix the salt into the dough or sprinkle on top of the crispbread before baking or omit it altogether.
To make the baked crackers easier to crack, “cut” the spread dough into squares with a dinner knife before baking.
