My general consumption of nuts and seeds are quite high. I love to eat raw organic seeds and nuts. I eat them on a daily basis as they give me more natural energy than any other food.
Seeds are high in fiber, contain high levels of essential fatty acids, vitamin A, B, C and E and monounsaturated fats that can help keep our heart healthy and our body disease free.
Seeds make healthy snacks for those peckish moments. Being a low GI food they are a good source of slow release energy, which helps to keep blood sugar levels stable and feeling fuller for longer.
This five seeded cracker recipe is quick and easy to make and stores well throughout the week. I love to top these with avocado or homemade pesto or hummus! ~ Yum!
3/4 cup mixed seeds ( linseed’s, sesame, pumpkin, sunflower, chia)
1 cup white spelt flour OR (for gluten free option replace with rice flour or coconut flour)
1 tsp salt flakes
1/2 cup water
1/3 cup olive oil
Mix dry ingredients to combine. Add water and oil.
Mixture will be a sticky consistency. Divide in half.
Roll each half on 2 sheets of baking paper thin. Press out with your fingers works well too.
Sprinkle with salt flakes or herbs to garnish.
Bake 180 degrees for 20-30 minutes until golden. Leave to cool completely before breaking into sizes you require.
