Nutrition Information

  • 1 Healthy Fat

Ingredients:

  • ¼ cup pumpkin seeds
  • 2 Tbsp. sunflower seeds
  • 2 Tbsp. sesame seeds
  • 2 Tbsp. ground flaxseeds
  • 2 Tbsp. hemp seeds
  • ¼ cup chia seeds
  • 1 tsp. dried thyme
  • 1 tsp. dried basil
  • 1 tsp. dried rosemary
  • 1 tsp. poppy seeds
  • 1 tsp. coarse sea salt

Directions:

  1. Place 2 oven racks in the center of the oven and preheat it to 200ºF. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. Combine all the ingredients, along with pepper to taste, in a small mixing bowl. Add 3⁄4 cup water and stir to combine.
  3. Set the mixture aside to soak for 15 minutes, until thick and uniform.
  4. After soaking, stir the mixture to combine. Divide evenly between the prepared baking sheets and press the mixture into even 1⁄8-inch-thick layers.
  5. Bake for 1 hour, until golden and crisp on top.
  6. Remove the baking sheets from the oven, keeping the oven on. Carefully lift the parchment paper and cracker dough from the baking sheets and flip them over, back onto the hot baking sheets. Slowly peel the parchment away to expose the bottom of the cracker dough. Return the baking sheets to the oven for another 30 minutes.
  7. Cool the cracker dough for 30 minutes and then break or cut it into crackers that are approximately 2 by 2 inches (about 24 crackers per sheet).
  8. Note: These crackers may be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for 4 to 5 days. For long-term storage, lay the crackers on a baking sheet in a single layer, with the crackers not touching, to freeze before storing them in a freezer-safe bag.
