What are the Ingredients in these Seed Crackers?
White Sesame Seeds
Flaxseed Meal (ground flaxseed)
How to Make Seed Crackers
Preheat your oven to 350F degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
You'll start by mixing the flaxseed meal and chia seeds with warm water in a medium-sized bowl. This allows the chia seeds to gel and the flaxseed meal to absorb the water.
Next, you'll add the sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, white sesame seeds, and oregano.
Then, add the remaining ingredients and mix well until it forms a smooth and sticky paste.
Place the seed mixture on the parchment-lined baking sheet and spread the mixture out thin with the back of a wet spoon.
(The water on the spoon will help to keep the mixture from sticking to your spoon.)
Alternatively, you could place another piece of parchment paper on top of the seed mixture and use a rolling pin to roll it out thin. (If it sticks, you could spray the parchment paper lightly with cooking spray.)
Bake the crackers for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown and crunchy.
Allow the crackers to cool completely before breaking them into pieces.
How to Store Seed Crackers

Be sure to store crackers at room temperature for best results.

Ultimate Seed Crackers (Flax Crackers)
- Preheat oven to 325F. And prepare a large baking sheet or tray with parchment paper.
- Start by mixing the flaxseed meal and chia seeds with warm water in a medium bowl. Let it sit for at least 15 minutes.
- Add the rest of the ingredients to that same bowl and stir very well to form a smooth and sticky paste.
- Press the cracker dough out onto the prepared baking sheet. The easiest way is to use a wet spoon so the paste doesn’t stick to it. Another way is to cover the paste with additional parchment paper and roll it out with a rolling pin, but it may stick a little. You can spray the parchment lightly with cooking spray to prevent this.
- Bake the flax crackers for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown and crunchy. Let them cool enough to be able to break the large piece into smaller cracker size pieces.
- Keep leftovers in an airtight jar for up to 10 days (They will dry a bit after the second day).
