Sesame & Flax Seed Crackers

April 1, 2011

After a week of tough workouts that leave me feeling awesome, I do not want to sabotage my efforts by indulging in overly processed, caloric dense, and nutrient vacant snacks like crackers or chips.  I do, however, want to satisfy my snack cravings with wonderful flavors and crunchy textures that are similar to crackers.
These crackers -although good by themselves – are amazing with a side of freshly made guacamole and a cinch to make!
1/4 C. Blanched Almond Flour
1/4 C. Ground Flax Seeds
1/4 C. Sesame Seeds
1/4 C. Pumpkin Seeds
1/4 C. Sunflower Seeds
1/2 tsp. Ground Cumin
1/4 tsp. Ground Coriander
1/4 tsp. Ancho Chile Powder (omit if desired)
1/4 C. Water
1 T. olive oil
Preheat oven to 375F.
Place all seed ingredients in food processor and process.
Pour seed content into mixing bowl, add seasonings and mix.
Add water and oil and mix to combine. The mixture should be slightly wet and sticky.
On parchment paper-lined baking sheet, drop mixture by the tablespoon spaced about 2″ apart. (parchment paper is important so they don’t stick!)
Cover dropped mixture with parchment paper and flatten with rolling pin as thin as possible. The bottom of a measuring cup works well also! Remove paper and make sure all pieces are evenly flattened.
Bake for 15 minutes, until crisp.  Place pan on wire rack and let cool for 5 minutes.  Remove crackers from pan and place on wire rack to cool completely.
We love to serve these with fresh guacamole, but the younger family members like them dipped in almond butter.
