Happy Sunday everyone! It’s freezing cold and snowing in London right now. And all I want to do is have a long hot bath and then curl up on the sofa with a good book and lots of snacks.
If you’ve been following along for a while now, you’ll know that quick and easy homemade treats are my forte and there’s plenty of them on the blog!
To mix things up a little, I’ve been recipe testing (and tasting!) savoury snacks for a change. And the result is pretty damn good: vegan crunchy multi seed crackers!
Super quick and easy to make and perfect for dipping into hummus, salsa, guacamole, tapenade or baba ghanoush!
If you make this recipe at home be sure to tag your photo #myvibrantkitchen on Instagram. I love seeing all your beautiful recreations. And don’t forget to sign up for My Vibrant Kitchen’s newsletter to get the latest recipes, vegan lifestyle tips and travel diaries straight to your inbox.
- 100 g oats
- 250 g white all purpose flour
- 50 g Pumpkin seeds
- 50 g Sunflower seeds
- 30 g Flax seeds
- 20 g Chia seeds
- 3 tsp sea salt flakes (or 2 tsp table salt)
- 2 Tbsp olive oil
- 2 Tbsp maple syrup
- 250 ml water
- Add the oats, flour, different kinds of seeds and salt to a big mixing bowl and stir the mixture with a spoon.
- Now add the olive oil, maple syrup and water and mix with the spoon until fairly well combined. Once the mixture starts coming together, kneed the dough thoroughly with your hands. If the dough is too sticky, you can add a little bit more flour. Form a dough ball and let it rest for 10 minutes.
- Flour your work surface and roll out the dough as thin as you can without tearing it. Aim for about 2-3 mm thickness. The thinner the crackers the crunchier they’re going to be!!
- Pre-heat the oven to 180˚C.
- Use a cookie cutter to cut out the crackers and place them onto a lined baking sheet. Bake the crackers for 8 minutes then turn them over and bake for another 7 minutes, 15 minutes in total. You might have to adjust the times a little bit depending on your oven and cracker thickness. You want the edges to start turning golden brown and the crackers to snap when you break them in two.
- Repeat until you’ve used up all the dough. Let the crackers cool on a cooling rack and then store them in an airtight container for up to a week. Or even better, just eat them straight away! Enjoy!
