These are fantastic! Not only are they super tasty but they are a much healthier alternative to your traditional crackers. At this busy and festive time of year any healthy tweaks we can make to our diet are welcome! I love serving these with my simple guacamole (recipe in my cookbook (currently 20 % off plus free shipping using the code CELEBRATE). Check it out here. Hurry the sale ends this weekend!).
I used my Thermomix to make these, but you can just as easily use a food processor to get the consistency you require.
The Shrinking Hubby’s Spiced Grain-Free Crackers
- 1 cup Almonds
- ¼ cup pepitas
- ¼ cup sunflower seeds
- ½ tablespoon salt
- ½ teaspoon garlic granules
- ½ tsp cumin
- ½ teaspoon chilli flakes
- ½ teaspoon turmeric powder
- ½ tsp paprika
- 1 tablespoon chia seeds
- 50 mls water
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
How To Pull It All Together
Make a chia gel by mixing the water, olive oil and chia seeds. Set aside.
Add everything except chia gel mix to your Thermomix or Food Processor. Mix until well blended. (Thermomix Speed 9, 10 seconds)
Add chia gel, mix until a dough is formed. (Thermomix speed 4, 10 seconds). You may need to scrape down the bowl and repeat until the desired consistency is reached.
Roll out the dough between 2 sheets of baking paper to about 2 mm thick and cut into squares. Repeat until all dough is used.
Sprinkle with extra sea salt and chilli flakes (if desired).
Bake 180 degrees Celcius (350 degrees Fahrenheit) for 10-13 minutes – watch to make sure they don’t burn.
Enjoy with your favourite dip!
