You won’t believe how 100% crispy these keto seed crackers are! They are packed with sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds and chia seeds. This keto cracker recipe is amazing for snacking or as part of a sharing platter or a cheese board. Only 1g net carbs per cracker!
Sticking to a low carb diet or a keto diet is all about preparation. And I’ve gotta tell you, these low carb seed crackers are one of my new secret weapons. In the last few days, I’ve had them for breakfast, lunch and dinner!
They are gluten free, vegan, super easy to make and stay extra crispy for weeks. Many keto cracker recipes contain nut flours but these crackers are completely nut free.
Multi seed crackers ingredients
My super seed crackers are crazy nutritious. Check out the superfood ingredients and their benefits:
Pumpkin seeds – Also known as pepita seeds, pumpkin seeds are high in antioxidants such as cartenoids and vitamin E. Antioxidants help reduce inflammation. They are also one of the best sources of magnesium (source).
Sunflower seeds – Apart from anti-inflammatory benefits, sunflower seeds are rich in healthy fats that are linked to good heart health. They also contain vitamins and minerals that support the immune system (source).
Sesame seeds – High in fibre, which is vital for digestive health. Sesame seeds may also help lower cholesterol and reduce heart disease risk (source).
Chia seeds – AKA one of the healthiest foods on the planet! These tiny seeds are loaded with fibre, protein and omega-3 fatty acids (source).
Psyllium husk – Psyllium husks are the husks from the seeds of the Plantago ovata plant. They are a prebiotic fiber, which is essential for a healthy gut.
How to make keto seed crackers
Now to the best part. Seed crackers are incredibly easy to make! All you need to do is mix them with a little water and wait for the chia seeds and psyllium husk to expand and become gel-like and sticky. This way you end up with a cracker “dough” that you can roll out.
Combine all ingredients in a bowl. Mix well and let rest for 20 minutes so the mixture can thicken.
Once the chia seeds and the psyllium have absorbed the liquid, the mixture takes on a gooey, gel-like consistency. Transfer your cracker “dough” onto parchment paper…
… and put another sheet of parchment on top. Roll out using a rolling pin or flatten with our hands into a thin layer. My mix covered a 30 x 40 cm baking sheet and I had a few offcuts which I baked on a second tray.
Now, remove the top parchment and pre-cut into squares using a pizza cutter or a knife. Don’t miss this step!
Bake for about 1 hour until all water has evaporated and the keto crackers are lightly browned and crisp.
Note – The oven time will depend on how thick or thin you have rolled out the dough. If it’s been rolled out thicker, you may need to add 10-15 minutes. If it’s very thin, 1 hour may be too long. Just keep an eye on them!
What to eat seed crackers with
1. Enjoy them for nibbles with a dip such as guacamole, taramasalata or baba ganoush.
2. They could be part of a large mezze sharing platter or cheese board when you’re having a crowd over.
3. Or treat them like a mini sandwich. Think butter, ham and cheese, cream cheese and smoked salmon or peanut butter and sugar free strawberry jam!
4. Seed crackers even work as part of a simple keto meal (such as hearty soups or salads). They are filling and so satisfying. And did I mention delicious?
This recipe can be customised to fit whichever seeds you have in your cupboard and to your preferences.
You could change the quantities of the seeds around or use whole flaxseed or poppy seeds, for example.
Or try gently toasting the seeds before you mix the “dough” to elevate the taste. This can be done in a dry pan or in the oven.
Ground flax could work in place of the chia seeds. Also, ground flax seed is a possible sub for the psyllium husk powder. My guess is that you will need more flax than psyllium though. I would use 2 tbsp flax seeds instead of the 1 tbsp psyllium husk powder.
