wild seed crackers

Seeds aren’t just good for birds, they are also a really healthy and delicious snack for us. They are a great source of fibre and contain lots of vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants that help to reduce blood sugar and blood pressure.

 

This recipe is super-fast and easy to do and makes a tasty snack that can be enjoyed with some delicious cheese or simply on their own, with some parmesan or herbs sprinkled on the top.

 

ingredients:

  • 3 mugs of mixed seeds

  • Water to cover

 

optional:

Add fennel seeds for a hint of liquorice or chilli flakes for warmth. Mustard seeds or onion seeds add colour textured taste and sunflower seeds are packed full of nutrients too. 

 

For a slightly different topping you could sprinkle some rosemary or parmesan on the top of the crackers before they go into the oven or maybe some Himalayan salt?

 

you will need:

  • Baking paper

  • A baking tray

 

method:

- Heat an oven to 180°C.

- Add mixed seeds to a bowl and add enough water to cover.

- Leave for 1-2 hours to soak.

- When the seeds are soaked they for a gelatinous kind of syrup (if you use chai seeds they make it slightly slimier).

- Spread the mixture onto of the baking paper on the baking tray and then smooth out to a thin layer across the paper

- Sprinkle a topping of your choice or leave “naked”

 

cook:

- Put into a hot oven for approx 30 mins or until slightly browned and all of the moisture has evaporated.

- Remove from the oven and allow to cool.

 - Cut or break into pieces or shards and store in an airtight container until you are ready to enjoy them.
