Aussie Blend (Rosemary & Garlic) Seed Crackers – Free of Gluten, Wheat, Eggs, Dairy, Nuts and Yeast

imageimage

So ..on a thermomix page I frequent, someone recommended a cracker that was free of wheat, dairy, nuts, yeast, gluten and eggs. I checked them out and they were pretty low carb so I bought them. They were amazing but the price of them meant I would probably never buy them again. Over $8 for 8 crackers (4 serves) plus postage.

Anyway, I had a look at the ingredients and thought, I can make these. And I have. The recipe is so easy it’s ridiculous. Best of all, they are cheap. I would say at a rough guess they cost me less than $5 for a tray – approx 30 quite big crackers.

In these crackers I use flavour products from YIAH and I will link to where you can buy them but you can also just use whatever spices you have and like.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 c sesame seeds
    1/4 c sunflower seeds
    1/4 c pepitas (pumpkin seeds)
  • 1/2 c psyllium husks
  • 1 tbsp. Aussie Roast YIAH blend (or any herbs/ spice mix you like)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 c water
  • 2 tsp YIAH intensely garlic evoo (or sub with 2 x tsp olive oil and 1 tsp garlic powder) OPTIONAL if you are watching cals just add a tbsp or so more water

sea salt flakes

Method:

Heat oven to 160 d (140g fan forced). Place all the seeds, spice mix and the salt in a bowl. Pour in water and mix to combine. Leave for 5 minutes to soften and bind everything together.

Roll out 1/4c to ½ c mix at a time between two sheets of silicone paper (glad bake) cut to fit your baking trays. Roll as thinly as possible. Tidy edges by folding up edge of paper and rolling into the edge, turn paper and repeat.

Lift the top silicone sheet carefully off and take a large knife and score the top into squares buy PRESSING the knife into the mix, lifting and pressing again. If you try to do a cutting motion it will just pull it apart. If you make score lines when the cracker crisps up it will be easy to snap them off into crackers.

Lay the silicone sheet back on the top and put the whole thing on your baking tray and in the oven. Bake for 60 minutes or so. You want the cracker to be completely dried and crispy but not browned, as crackers that are too brown will be bitter. Lift the top sheet off for the last ten minutes to really crisp up.

Snap in to pieces, put on a rack to cool. Store in an airtight container. They will stay crisp for ages but they won’t last long, guaranteed! For a real low carb treat, serve with lashings of the YIAH garlic and herb dip

Enjoy!
