Crackers can be made with seeds and seeds only. Grain free seed cracker is easy to make and it makes a nice home made gift to enjoy with some red and cheese.
Th crackers I make are not exactly grain free as I always oats, quinoa or buckwheat. Oats are my favorite. But as said, the grains are not necessary at all. Or pseudo-grains I should call them I guess.
My first thoughts of making crackers were that it will take hours, there will be crazy lot of dough rollin' and the dough will seriously stick. That could actually be the case with a more traditional approach but not with seeds. All there is to do is mixing the seeds with water, some waiting, spreading the seed mix on a parchment paper with a spoon and then some more waiting again while the cracker is in the oven.
The seeds can be any of your favorites but do use some flax or chia as they act like eggs and help to combine the ingredients together. And remember to brush the parchment paper with oil, otherwise your cracker will stick to it like super clue and will ever never come off. Been there..
Seed Cracker Recipe
100 g oats, quinoa meal or buckwheat meal
300 g seeds (30-50 g flax or chia)
4 dl water
- Mix your chosen meal with seeds and water. Let sit for at least 30 minutes.
- Line baking tray with parchment paper and brush with olive oil.
- Spread the seed mixture on the paper evenly and bake in 175 (celsius) for 45-60 minutes. Check the cracker at 45 minutes and if its still soft in the middle, flip it and continue to bake for another 5-15 minutes.
