Save yourself a bundle and make your own low carb seed crackers! They’re a great snack, easy to prep, and a fab alternative to bread
Spending R50 or so on a box of crackers is not particularly my idea of fun … I used to do it – until I learned that I could make them myself (and just how easy it really is to do so).
You can either buy individual packs of the different seeds, or just use a seed mix to make life a bit easier 😉
This recipe is adapted from ‘The Real Meal Revolution’ (pg 226).
What you need
Yield: 10 crackers (snack sized)
Prep time: 15 minutes (incl standing time)
Cooking time: approx 1.5hrs
1 cup sunflower seeds
1/4 cup flax seeds
3/4 cup sesame seeds
1/4 cup pumpkin seeds
3 tblspns psyllium husks
1/4 cup + 2 tblspns water (you may need a touch more, use your discretion here)
Pinch of salt
(Alternatively, use 2-2.5 cups of seed mix)
*Options: Add flavours! Cumin, cayenne pepper, cinnamon for something a little sweeter … The choice is yours*
What you need to do
1. Preheat oven to 150°C. Line a baking tray with baking paper. Mix ingredients in a bowl. Leave to stand for about 10-15 minutes.
2. Spread out evenly, and as thinly as possible, and bake for 30 minutes.
3. Remove tray from oven, slice into desired sized crackers (it’s easier to do this whilst the mix is still pliable).
4. Place back into oven for another 30 minutes.
5. Turn off the oven, leave crackers for another 5-10 minutes, or until crispy.
