· 1/2 cup sesame seeds
· 1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
· 1/2 cup sunflower seeds
· 1/2 cup chia seeds
· 11/2 Tablespoon ground flax seeds
· 1/2 teaspoon salt
· 1 teaspoon fine powdered herb/seasoning (eg. onion, garlic powder, cajun seasoning etc.) OR 2 teaspoons dried flake type herbs (e.g.dried Italian seasoning, thyme, oregano, dill etc.)
· 1 cup plus 4 Tbls hot water (boil then let stand and cool for 5 -10 minutes)
· Parchment paper and baking sheets.
Heat oven to 275 degrees
Combine all seeds and add salt and seasoning, mix to blend. Add water and blend. Mixture will be wet seeds at first but as it stands, it will thicken. This is due to the Chia and Flax which act as a binding agent when wet. Allow mixture to set for 10-15 minutes: stirring 1-2 times between.
Place parchment paper on a large baking sheet and spread mixture to a thin layer of 1/4 inch. Fill in any holes by borrowing from the edge and gently pressing into any gaps.
Bake at 275 degree oven for 45 minutes. Remove from oven and score crackers. Gently turn crackers and bake for an additional 45 mins. Turn oven down to lowest setting to let crackers get slightly golden (for about an additional 60-70 minutes or until crisp).
These keep fresh and delicious in an airtight container for up to a week.
