I could hardly wait to share this recipe with you because these little seedlings are sensational! I am always culinary inspired by my Italian side of the family because when we gather at their lake house, eating and eating more seems to be the thing we do!

Fortunately for me, everyone is on board with clean eating! These delicious little “seedsters” can take on a life of their own depending on the ratio of seeds and spices you choose.  My sister-in-law, Ellen had bought some seed crackers from the market but they were mostly flax seeds that were not ground; not to mention they had a high price tag on them.

So you may be asking, what is the problem with that?  Besides the exorbitant cost that made these crackers a luxury, not everyone is willing or can pay that price. Eating flaxseeds whole is even more wasteful…yes literally {physically wink wink}. They end up passing right through the body into the commode and you miss out on all the nutrients those little seeds offer.

My {most} brilliant sister-in-law, decided to make her own!!  She made her version and they were devoured in no time by all; even the little pieces that broke away were mastered with such dexterity! Not even a crumb was left behind!

This is my take on the recipe and my foodie head is spinning on the exponential ways to create different recipes from sweet to savory!  I hope you enjoy every last crumb {or seed} because as always, this recipe will nourish your noggin and your body with all the great omegas and nutrients!

I thought you might like to see some family pictures of our vacation adventures! This was a first for Adriana getting to go into the City and on a train! We decided riding bicycles in town was more desirable than risking our life in the city! Our daughter was spot on as she proclaimed there were as many pigeons as people in this place! I think a highlight for her was taking a taxi through the city {which I always felt was hazardous to one’s health}!

This Historical house is home to a charming theater in Spring Lake NJ. I was so excited to see my all time favorite Mary Poppins! Adriana was over the moon to spend time with her older cousins! I thought it very keen they had a fountain of fresh water for the local dogs walking by.

My favorite part of our family trip is always staying at the cabin on Taconic Lake. It brings my busy self to a welcoming idleness. Not to mention paddle boarding, building a fire, which you can see I gleefully “tried” to chop wood with an ice pick axe. I don’t recommend doing that! I do recommend playing the game Post It! You take turns writing famous names on post it notes and stick it to the forehead without that person seeing it. After everyone has a name, you take turns asking Yes & No questions like ” am I still alive, am I a boy or girl? Anyway, I loved that they picked Mary Poppins for me! I guessed after only a few questions!

Total time

 

Author:
Serves: 30-35 crisps

Ingredients
  • ¾ cup raw sesame seeds
  • 1 cup raw pumpkin seeds
  • 1 cup ground flax seeds
  • 1 cup raw sunflower seeds
  • ½ raw cup hempseeds
  • 1 tbsp. onion flakes
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp pink Himalayan sea salt
  • ⅛ tsp ground cayenne pepper
  • ¾ cup water

Instructions
  1. In a large mixing bowl add all seeds and mix.
  2. Add all spices and herbs mix. Add water and stir.
  3. When water is blended and seeds are sticking together taste and add any extra spices to taste.
  4. Spread mixture on 2 cookie sheets. Flatten into a rectangle ¼ inch thick squaring edges.
  5. It takes a few minutes using a spatula to pat and flatten firmly so mixture sticks.
  6. Place in a 250 degree oven for 35-40 minutes.
  7. Using a pizza cutter or knife cut into pieces. When cutting if mixture buckles put back in oven.
  8. When crackers are ready to cut flip them gingerly and put back in the oven 30-40 minutes longer.
  9. The last 30-40 minutes will depend if you like them crisp and on your oven. I like 30 minutes.

Notes
I prefer using stoneware verses coated cookie sheets for health purposes. Do not oil the baking sheets. I noticed if I used the bigger pumpkin seeds crackers didn’t stay together as well. You could use a food processor to grind them smaller. Also, I prefer to buy whole flaxseeds and grind them myself as they will stay fresh. I often grind them and freeze them to use as needed. It is common they can go rancid and the nutrients deplete after grinding so freezing them is a good idea. Interchanging seeds for shredded coconut tastes great but may require more water.
