This is a nice alternative to buying (usually expensive) crackers. The seeds make the crispbreads extra delicious—and nutritious—and they are SO SIMPLE to make. And this is coming from someone who does not bake things, because I don’t like to get too fussy. Try this recipe and you many never buy crackers again.
The best part is, with every seed you get a concentrated powerhouse of vitamins, minerals, fiber, and essential fatty acids. These crispbreads are loaded with them. That’s why I decided to include this recipe as part of a healthy party menu plan. If you’ve never used spelt flour this is a good place to try it. It has an almost pretzel-like taste that pairs wonderfully with the mix of seeds. Warning: they are addictive, make a lot!
MAKES 80-100 CRACKERS
PREHEAT OVEN 400ºF… MAKE THE DOUGH
3/4 CUP flax seeds
3/4 CUP sesame seeds
1 CUP pumpkin seeds
2 1/2 CUPS spelt flour
3/4 CUP grape seed oil
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 1/2 CUPS boiling water
Mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl, pour the boiling water over, mix well.
LINE TWO BAKING TRAYS WITH PARCHMENT
Bake in two batches, or on 2 separate trays…
Spoon half of the mixture onto each parchment-lined tray, and press it into a thin layer. With a knife, score the pastry into desired size. Bake for 25 to 30 min, until crispy and golden. (Start checking after 20 min, to make sure it does not burn.) Move parchment and crisps onto cooling rack. When cool, break apart on scored lines.
