Awesome Seed crackers

These are a great grain-free alternative, have lots of crunch, and are very versatile.


Preparation:

One of the ingredients in these seed crackers is LSA. As the acronym suggests this is an equal mixture of ground linseeds, ground sunflower seeds, and ground almonds. We grind our own linseeds, sunflower seeds and almonds in a Thermomix or food processor and then combine them and keep in the fridge or freezer. Alternately, you can purchase premixed LSA from most health food shops.


If nuts are a problem for you or the kids can’t take nuts to school then just leave out the almonds for crackers that are nut free by increasing the other two seeds (linseed and sunflower) to make LS mix instead of LSA.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup LSA (refer above)
  • 1/2 cup pepitas (dried pumpkin seeds)
  • 1/2 cup sesame seed
  • 1/2 cup linseed
  • 1 cup of filtered water

Method:

  1. Mix all ingredients together for one minute in a mixing bowl with a spoon
  2. Pour out onto oven trays lined with baking paper until even and flat in the tray
  3. Bake on a 120 degree Celsius oven for 30 minutes then score the crackers with a knife
  4. Place back into the oven and then cook for a further 1 to 1.5 hours or until crisp.

You can use a dehydrator instead of the oven but the crackers will be less crunchy. These will keeps for a week in airtight container. Cooking at or under 120 degrees celcius stops the seed oils from becoming trans fats and keeps them in their natural state.
