These gluten free crackers are extremely delicious and slightly addictive, you might not ever have to buy crackers again!
When I'm creating recipes I can tell pretty fast if a recipe will become a staple item or not... This is definitely one of them. Before even posting this I've made several batches, wrapping them up and giving them away as gifts to friends and family. This is just like granola, hummus or peanut butter, you should have a big batch ready made in you pantry at all time!
- 1,5 cup flax seeds
- 1,5 cup pumpkin seeds
- 1 cup sunflower seeds
- 1 cup sesame seeds
- 3,5 cups boiling hot water
- 1/4 cup coconut oil
- 2 cup corn flour
- 1 tsp salt + some to sprinkle before baking
- Heat oven to 200°C. Place all the ingredients in a large bowl, pour the boiling hot water last and mix to combine. Leave for 15 minutes for flax seeds to soften and bind everything together.
- Spread the mixture onto a parchment paper lined tray using a large spatula. Use another parchment paper on top to spread out the mixture thin. No higher than 5 mm. Score the mixture by pressing a sharp knife down to create lines. This will make it easier to break into evenly sized crackers after cooking.
- Sprinkle with some flaky sea salt. Bake for 25-30 minutes. (watch the crackers carefully the last 5 minutes, they can burn quickly. Especially if you have an uneven oven.)
- Remove to a rack to cool then store in an airtight container.
When it comes to health and diet, one simple piece of advice is more relevant to ALL people than anything else: Eat more fiber! People are so concerned about proteins when in fact, fiber is something that most people are deficient in while protein is the exact opposite.
Fiber is a carbohydrate found in plant foods like fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds and whole grains. Unlike other carbs, it isn’t digested by your body so it passes quickly through your system without causing your blood sugar to rise.
These crackers are great for balanced blood sugar levels and contain both sources of protein, zinc and good fats.
I'm very sure that once you try this recipe you will appreciate it as much as I do! The great thing about these crackers is that you can get a fair share of flax seeds, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds and sesame seeds without even thinking about it!
