Ingredients

20 piece(s)

  • 1 tbsp chia seeds, (white or black)
  • 140 g Whole raw almonds
  • 15 g whole linseeds
  • 30 g sunflower seeds
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt flakes
  • 1/2 tsp Garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp dried chilli flakes, (or 1/2 tsp for extra bite)
  • 60 g water
  • 2 tbsp sesame seeds to finish, (or to taste)
  • 1 tbsp extra sea salt flakes, (or to taste)
5

Recipe's preparation

  1. Mix chia seeds with water in a small bowl & allow to sit at room temperature for approximately 1 hour.

  2. Preheat oven to 175C.  Line a large baking sheet with non-stick baking paper.

  3. Place almonds, sunflower seeds, linseeds, sea salt flakes, garlic powder & chilli flakes into the TM bowl & mill for  20 secs on speed 7. It should look like crumbs at this point.

  4. Add the soaked chia seeds (now a thick seedy gel) & mix on speed 4 until the ingredients begin to form a dough ball (approx 10-15 secs).  

  5. Using spatula, scrape dough onto lined baking sheet & form into a ball with hands.  Mixture will be sticky but firm.

  6. Place another sheet of non-stick baking paper on top & roll out dough to approx 2-3mm thick.

  7. Remove top sheet of paper & sprinkle extra sea salt flakes & sesame seeds over entire surface, pressing in gently with your hand to help them stick.  Using a sharp knife or pizza cutter score dough into cracker shapes (mine were approx 4x5cm each).

  8. Spread the shapes out a bit on the baking sheet so that each cracker cooks evenly.

  9. Bake in the oven for approx 15 mins or until golden brown (watch that the thinner edges don't burn).  Remove from oven & transfer crackers to a cooling rack.  Allow to cool completely - they will crisp up as they cool.

    Enjoy!

Tip

This recipe is based on //www.discoveringtheextraordinary.blogspot.com.au/2012/07/zippy-garlic-crackers-grain-free.html

I was converting the original recipe for the TMX, but found the mixture was a little too wet & the resulting biscuits were a bit too soft/crumbly.  I'm a big fan of chia seeds, especially in GF cooking, so I decided to add chia seeds to the water as a binding agent & the texture is much better.  The addition of sesame seeds on top made this version taste better than the original, too.

Perfect for those following a paleo-type diet, GAPS or avoiding grains for whatever other reason.  Also suitable for vegans.

If you prefer a blonder biscuit, you could blanch the almonds first.  Of course, these may not be suitable for school lunches with so many schools being nut-free these days, but they would make a great high protein after-school snack or the perfect accompaniment to dips or a cheese platter.

    These are great little crackers that we had been missing since starting the LCHF way of eating! Our oven is tricky so we cooked them at 160 and for about 20 mins to make them perfect. Used the MC to shape the most perfect size! Thanks for a great recipe Cooking 6

    Submitted by LizzyLoc on 11. January 2016 - 00:02.

    I made a spinich, ginger, lime and apple smoothie and then strained the pulp and used this to add with the chia seeds. Followed the recipe after this but needed to cook the biscuit for 1/2hr . Not sure if this was because of the pulp or because I rolled the mixture out abit thick but nethertheless the resuly is lovely with a hint of chilli and lime flavour. thankyou for this recipe, i will be making this again.

    Submitted by dazranga on 31. October 2015 - 19:10.

    I've made these a few times, and they're brilliant! I noticed that they're incredibly strong and crisp using almond only - however today I swapped out about 40gm of almonds for pecans (a mix of the two), plus I probably rolled them a little thinner than previously. 

    Hard to be sure whether it was just the decreased thickness, or the pecans, but they're definitely a little more delicate and inclined to crack than the almond only versions. Taste awesome though.

    Just wondering what other variations people have tried?

    These are wonderful, and so easy to adapt if you are low on one ingredient, or just want a slightly different flavour. Only problem is making enough that they're not all eaten that day. I'd like to make a big batch to keep in the cupboard, but they're too good to store.

    I love these crackers!  They are tasty (and addictive) enough to eat on their own but I also enjoy them with a spicy hommus or beetroot dip.  I use 100g almonds and 40g brazil nuts.
