Easy and Delicious Seed Crackers

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.
