I love creating different textures and options for my cheese boards. Seed crackers appeal to me because they provide a gluten-free option to my guests.
While you can buy seed crackers they can be expensive but ever so easy to make. They are satisfying on their own or with a dip.
Easy and Delicious Seed Crackers
I used to buy seed crackers or even discs which you could break into pieces for my chees plate. I finally discoverd that you can make your own quick easily.No real skill required and have the bonus of being gluten free and keto friendly.
- 1 cup sunflower seeds
- ½ cup pumpkin seeds
- 1/4 cup sesame seeds
- 3 tbsp chia seeds
- 2 tbsp psyllium husks
- 1 cup water
- 1 tsp. kosher salt
- Preheat the oven 300F and prepare a rimmed baking sheet with an oversized piece of parchment paper.
- Combine all ingredients in a smal bowl. and let rest for 5-15 minutes to allow the chia and physillium to thick the mixture.
- Roughly spread the mixtuture on the parchment paper and place another sheet of parchment on top. Flatten with your hands or use a glass as a rolling pin to evenly distribute the seeds to the edges.
- Carefully remove the top sheet which and cut into shapes with a knife or leave whole and break into pieces later.
- Bake for about 1 hour or until a light tap on the surface signals that they are done.
- Cool completely and then separate them into pieces.
This recipe is quite versatile as you can use whatever seeds you have on hand in whatever proportions you wish to equal 1 3/4 to 2 cups of seeds. I often use flax meal instead of chia seeds which also become glutenous with water, but use 1/4 cup.
