This is the most amazing thing to eat if you are struggling with wheat and other grains, or if you simply like a snack on the go. Made mainly from seeds, it will fill you up nicely, gives you great nutrients and it tastes lovely, too!
They are rather neutral in taste so you can add any sweet or savoury food (I love them with yoghurt or some peaches). Perfect additions are peanut butter, cheese, pastrami, edamame or simply a carrot or some cucumber… Have some water or a cup of tea so the chia seeds can keep you fuller for longer!
1/2 cup chia seeds (I use a normal tea mug as a “cup”)
1 cup of any seeds you like – sesame, pumpkin, sunflower, or a mix of all of them
1/2 cup ground almonds (if you are OK with gluten you can use wholegrain spelt flour)
1 handful of any nuts you like, chopped in small pieces (optional)
1/4 tsp of salt
If you prefer them more savoury, you can add fresh or dried herbs and some minced garlic.
Stir everything together in a bowl, add 150ml of water. If it’s too dry, add a bit more water.
Spread the mixture on a piece of baking paper, and put another layer of baking paper on top. Use a rolling pin to roll out the mixture until it’s about 5mm thick. If it’s any thicker they will not get crispy!
Remove the top layer of baking paper and lift the bottom layer with the mixture flat onto a baking tray.
Preheat your oven to 170C and bake the crackers for about 30 min or when the edges start browning. Remove from the oven, cut them into suitable size crackers, flip them over and bake them again for another 10-15 min.
Let them cool completely before storing them in a sealed container. Enjoy!
