Making your own delicious seed-based crackers is easy and fun. Nutty and flavorful, these crackers will disappear almost instantly, with or without the help of cheese. Our Market Harvest spice blend works beautifully, with its nuanced mix of seed flavors, including the pungency of ajwain, the light sweetness of fennel and a gingery-pepper bite from grains of paradise.
You could also substitute our Better Than Everything Bagel Spice. Both blends have sea salt, so we didn't add any extra salt to the recipe. Inspired by a recipe from our friend Grace Benveniste.
Makes 1 cookie sheet of crackers
1/4 cup flax seed meal*
1/4 cup black chia seeds
1/4 cup flax seeds (dark or golden)
1/4 cup sunflower seeds
1/4 cup pumpkin seeds
1/4 cup toasted sesame seeds
2 tbsp Market Harvest Spice
*To get 1/4 cup flax seed meal, simply grind 1/3 cup flax seeds in a coffee grinder.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine all the ingredients in a bowl. Add 1 1/2 cups water and mix well again. Let the mixture sit for at least 20 minutes to soak up the water. Spread the mixture using the back of a spoon on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet until thin.
Bake the crackers until crispy, flipping the crackers once midway through baking, about 30 minutes per side. Cut up or break into pieces.
