These easy-to-make crackers are my new best friend. It’s simply a combination of chia seeds and other seeds (think pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds, sunflower seeds etc) with water and a little spice for flavouring (cayenne pepper, cumin, chilli or even some crushed garlic) mixed and baked on low heat.
It makes a delicious, filling, nutrient-dense snack that keeps you going for ages. Very moreish too!
The recipe is flexible, but if you use the following this will make about 12 decent sized crackers/shards:
Alkaline Snack Recipe: The Energy Cracker!
Makes 12 crackers
1/2 cup chia seeds
1/2 cup sesame seeds
1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1 clove of crushed garlic
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Salt & pepper to taste
1 & 1/4 cups of water
Get the oven on at 300ºF. Then simply mix it all together and wait ten minutes for the chia seeds to soak up all of the water. Then using a spatula spread it on a sheet of baking paper on a baking tray. Now, using the spatula divide it into 12 sections and then put it into the preheated oven for half an hour – take it out, flip it and bake for 25 more minutes. It’s done once it’s golden and crackable.
You can eat on its own or with avocado, dips like hummus or even as a regular cracker and whatever you’d normally have on a regular cracker
