Seedy Cracker Recipe

Happy Monday Friends! I hope you had a great weekend! I've been MIA here yet again! My girls had their Winter break last week and I decided to just focus on them, catch up on a few things that we've been waiting to do, rest, play and just BE! It was great! One of the highlights was a spur of the moment trip to Boston to see Blue Man Group. It was SO fun and we loved it! Blue Man Group offered discounted tickets for school vacation week and we took advantage. If you haven't seen it, it's worth the trip! 

So, today we're back to reality and let me tell you, 5AM was brutal! I am glad we have less Winter behind us than ahead and am looking forward to longer days, more sunshine and in general, more warmth! Getting back to reality also includes getting back on track from an eating perspective! For me, I tend to indulge a bit more when we're in "vacation mode" so it's time to get back on track. That's where these Seedy Crackers come into play. 


Seedy Crackers
Ingredients:

  • 2 cups ground flaxseed - I buy preground, it just makes my life easier! 
  • 1 cup water (start with 3/4 c. and add more as needed to make a workable dough)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 2 tablespoons pepitas
  • 1 tsp freshly ground pepper
  • pinch of cayenne

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. 
  1. In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients and mix until an even dough forms. 
  1. Spread evenly onto a parchment paper and place another piece on top.
  1. Roll out dough and peel away top piece of parchment paper. The dough should be about 1/4 inch thick.
  1. Carefully cut your crackers into squares
  1. Bake for 20-30 minutes until your edges are crisp.
These are yummy when served with a bit of hummus or for solo snacking! I've been loving them lately! 
Can you believe we're Springing Forward on Sunday? Spring really is coming SOON!

  2. Blue Man Group? Boston? Fun, fun, fun! I hope to see both some day!
    How close are you to Boston? If I had my pic of anywhere to visit in the states, it would be there!
    The crackers sound tasty, do they stay crisp for a couple days?
