Seeds may be small, but they pack a powerful punch of protein and many other health benefits which is why it's important to include them in your diet on a regular basis. There are so many ways to incorporate the wide variety of seeds; add them to smoothies, grind them into flour and use them in baked goods, include them in your granola mix, sprinkle them on your non-dairy yogurt. Here, we've used them to create a Superseed Crackers which are super-tasty and super-nutritious! You can snack on these anytime and if you flavor these with your favorite spices and herbs, you'll never get bored and always have a something delicious to nibble on. Serve these with Cashew-Garlic Ricotta Cheese or Baked Almond Cheese
1/2 cup flax seeds
1 cup ground flax seeds
1/4 cup chia seeds
1/4 cup sunflower seeds
1/4 cup pumpkin seeds
2-3 tablespoons gluten-free tamari
2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
2 teaspoons onion powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
Dash of real maple syrup
1 cup water
Preheat the oven to 300ºF and line a baking tray with parchment paper. In a large bowl, mix all the seeds together. In a small bowl, mix together the remaining ingredients (tamari through water). Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and stir till combine. Allow them to sit for about 20 minutes. This allows the flax and chia seeds to become gelatinous which is how they will stick together.
Pour the mixture onto the lined baking tray and spread using the back of a spoon or an offset spatula till it’s even and about 1/4 inch thick all around. Score lightly with a knife lengthwise and widthwise so that the crackers will be easier to cut or break later.
Place the baking tray in the oven and bake for about 35 to 40 minutes. Turn off the heat and allow crackers to stay in the oven while it cools, for about an hour. Remove from oven and cut or break along the score lines. Store any left-overs in an air-tight container and it will keep for up to a week or so.
