Seedy Crackers - high in fibre, high in protein and healthy fats

If you're looking for a high fibre, high protein snack full of beneficial fats, then these crackers are perfect. What's more they're so simple to make, even my little nephew enjoys making them. You can find us making these on Instagram, click here. He loved getting his hands in there with the seeds!


Unfortunately, we all too often pick up snacks that are full of refined carbohydrates, and as a result you end up snacking continuously. If you ensure you're eating snacks or meals that are high in protein and fibre, these will help you feel fuller for longer. What's more, most people don't eat enough protein during the day, and these crackers are a great way to top up your protein and get some healthy fats in as well.


Rustic seedy crackers served on a plate with hummus

Ingredients:

  • 30g of each of the following - sunflower, pumpkin, sesame, golden and brown flaxseeds (total seeds - 150g) - you can add in fennel or other spices to give it more flavour

  • 15g poppy seeds

  • 2 tbsp psyllium husk

  • pinch of salt

  • 180ml of water


Instructions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 160 degrees celsius (140 degrees fan). Line a baking tray with baking paper.

  2. Mix all the dry ingredients together in a bowl.

  3. Add the water and bring everything together. Set aside for 20mins, so the seeds absorb the water and they bind together. Once thickened, tip onto the baking tray and flatten out as thin as possible.

  4. Bake for an hour but rotate the tray after 30mins. Once completely cooked, it should be fully dried and golden, if not carry on cooking a bit longer.

  5. Remove and let cool, then carefully peel the paper and snap to enjoy these wonderful seedy crackers.

Try adding other herbs and spices, I sometimes add za'ater or fennel seeds.
