Seed Cracker Recipe

Grain-free Seed Cracker Recipe.

 My journey to a healthier digestive system & less inflammation, led me to try grain-free recipes. So far it has worked for me. Not everyone needs to go grain-free, genetically some cultures are raised on grain. I won't elaborate in this blog, but I love my substitutes & endeavor to eat a balanced healthy nutritional lifestyle. The relief of pain & the energy,  I get from grain-free is amazing.

I've tried a few recipes but love the combination of this one. The recipe is dependent on what I have in the fridge or freezer.

Spices & Herbs add to the flavour & depends on my mood! Turmeric, ginger, rosemary, parmesan cheese, nutritional yeast, chilli, jalopeno, the world is your oyster.

Also, I prefer the mixture to better a little runny/wetter, as it pours into the tray & is spread more easily. Some recipes instruct to let the mix sit & rest, but I find it easier, to let it sit after I pour it. I also use baking paper on the tray, which makes for easier cleaning up.

My motto is " Less cleaning is best, for me anyway!"

I also double or triple my mix & store it in airtight containers.

 Ingredients for Seedcrackers.

1 cup water
1/2 cup of sunflower seeds
1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
1/2 cup almond meal
1/2 cup flaxseeds 
2 tablespoons of chia seeds 
1 teaspoon celtic salt or salt of choice. 

As mentioned a teaspoon of Turmeric, ginger, rosemary, pepper, chilli can be added.
2 tablespoons of nutritional yeast & 1/4 cup reganno or parmesan cheese.

On my 2nd attempt, I added in

1/4 cup sesame seeds
1/4 cup of poppy seeds
1/4 cup coconut oil (melted)
1/4 cup of amaranth seeds (this is very gritty & I prefer it to be blitzed). 

Adding in Nutritional Yeast is another healthy option & has a cheesey flavour, a stronger cheese than parmesan also increases the flavour.


1. I blend the larger seed in my, I call it a blitzer? Nutri Bullet. 
Sunflower,  pumkin, amaranth.

2.  Then I add with all the other ingredients into a bowl & mix.

3.  Line the baking trays with baking paper. 

 My recipe usually includes turmeric for it's inflammatory relief properties. 

Add extra water to make it a little runny for an easier spread. 

4.  Pour in the wet mix & spread. The thinner the mix the better. Score the cracker mix with a sharp knife. 

5. Place in a heated oven at 180c & bake for 30 mins. Keep an eye on the mix & let it brown. it can go from brown to burnt very quickly at the end of the bake. 

6. Once the crackers cool, I break them up & store in my Tupperware container. 

A lovely lady I know produces this delicious tasting Everymite, a substitute for vegemite. The recipe came about to produce a product Cinnamons' son Will could eat. Everymite is Gluten, Soy, Yeast, Grain Free. I enjoy it with butter on my seedcrackers.

Many other spreads suit these crackers, Tuna, Salmon, Hummus, cucumber, egg & lettuce.

 To my friend Louise, this recipe works no matter what I add or leave out.

I love to hear of your results. Happy Baking All!
