Healthy Low Carb Seed Crackers

Avoiding pre-packaged snacks?  Try making these seed crackers from scratch.   They are low carb, gluten free, preservative free, and vegan.  Did I mention delicious???   They are REALLY good!  So good that I have made a double batch weekly for the last several months.

As much as I would like to, I can not take credit for this recipe.  I found it in Gwyneth Paltrow’s book, The Clean Plate and she references Chef Magnus Nilsson.  So this is your chance to eat like a skinny celebrity :).

Ingredients

1/2 cup flaxseeds

1 Tblsp arrowroot powder

1/4 Tsp salt

3 Tblsp black seasame seeds

3 Tblsp white seasame seeds

3 Tblsp hulled pepitas

1 cup boiling water

Flaky sea salt

Mix ingredients in medium size bowl and let sit for 10 minutes – it will thicken to form a sticky paste.  Dump mixture onto parchment lined baking pan, cover with another sheet of parchment and roll out to make a 1/4 inch thick layer.  (If you don’t have a rolling pin, use your hands to spread evenly).  Gently remove the top parchment paper, potentially using a fork if it starts to stick.  Add flaky salt.  Bake at 320 degrees for 1 hour.

Let cool and break into desired cracker shape.  Serve as a chip/cracker replacement.
