I know, the thought of making your own crackers seems daunting, but I promise this recipe from the Oh She Glows Everyday cookbook is easy and delicious! If you don't have this cookbook yet I highly recommend it!
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 60-70 minutes
1/2 cup chia seeds
1/2 cup hulled sunflower seeds
1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
1/2 white sesame seeds
1 cup water
1 large clove garlic
1/4 tsp sea salt
1. Preheat the oven to 300F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
2. In a large bowl, combine the chia seeds, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, and sesame seeds.
3. Add water, garlic, and salt. Stir with a spatula until combined. Allow the mixture to sit for a couple minutes until the chia seeds absorb the water. After the 2 minute rest, when you stir the mixture, you shouldn't see a pool of water on the bottom of the bowl.
4. With the spatula (and a hand, if necessary), spread the mixture onto the prepared baking sheet in two small rectangles, each about 12- x 7-inches (30 x 18cm) and 1/8 to 1/4 inch thick. Sprinkle additional salt on top.
5. Bake for 35 minutes. Remove from the oven and carefully flip each rectangle with a spatula. Bake for 25-35 minutes more, until lightly golden around the edges. Watch closely near the end to make sure they don't burn. Let cool 10-15 minutes on the pan and then break the rectangles into crackers and let cool completely on the pan. Store in an airtight container on the counter for up to 2 weeks. You can also freeze the crackers in freezer bags for up to 1 month. If the crackers soften while storing (this can happen in humid environments), toast in the oven at 300F for 5-7 minutes, then cool completely. This is usually enough to return their former crispness.
