Thanks to No Packet November ambassador Alexx Stuart from Low Tox Life for the recipe below.
"It was just a regular day, I was going about my business getting some work done and then I remembered that nut free snacks for my son needed to be made, for him to take to kindy. We’re gluten free, so I always send him with stuff for morning / arvo tea, to avoid vacuous ‘gluten free’ biscuits and crackers than are basically starch and provide virtually no nutrients – not what a little body needs!
I didn’t want to make another sweet thing and was keen to come up with a savoury snack that could last the week in an airtight container.
These crackers were born out of what I had in the pantry and wanting to create a seriously delicious cracker for a gluten free / nut free / dairy free / grain free snack. The little guy was really excited about these. He adores them. I hope you do to. You’ll notice that because they are so much more nutrient dense than your average cracker, 2 or 3 of these is perfect for a snack – delicious with a dip or cheese or whatever spread you fancy. I had 4 crackers with paté and a big salad for lunch Thursday, and that was perfect for the whole afternoon".
“Free From Lots” Crackers Recipe
1 egg (if egg allergic, use chia / water mix like this suggestion to bind your crackers)
30 g coconut oil (butter is fine too if you don't need to avoid dairy)
40 g hemp seeds (optional. you can up the sunflower / pumpkin seeds by 20g each instead)
60 g sunflower seeds
80 g pumpkin seeds
2 cloves garlic ** - the garlic, fennel and thyme are optional, so if you're FODMAP sensitive, you can ditch the garlic or if you don't like fennel, ditch the fennel and so on. BUT even if you don't think you like fennel, I'd be brave and try it any way. It really makes it so wonderful!
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp fennel seeds
3 stalks fresh thyme without the stalks if you know what I mean. Just get the little green leaves off the stalks
*** ACTIVATING SEEDS it's a great idea if you have time, to prepare a big batch of activated seeds every now and then, so you have them on call. More on that in this post here. Not the end of the world however if you want to get stuck into making these today, to make a batch with what you have.
