Everything bagel seeded crackers. V. GF.
I’m starting to think that Tuesdays are going to surpass Mondays on the suck factor. Weird situations keep happening that 1. kill my run times 2. make my daughters cry and 3. make me feel like the worst mom on the planet.
Last Tuesday my youngest stepped off the bus and snapped her ligament that connects her leg to her foot. We spent all morning at the doc, hospital, X-rays, resting, eating, ice etc. Thankfully my sweet girl is on the mend and off crutches as of Monday but has a wonderfully bruised foot. It was my oldest daughter’s turn this week for a rough patch. Long story short, when she was younger my youngest smacked out about 1/3 rd of her front tooth out and it’s been bonded ever since. With her moving 10 hours away to attend her university we wanted to get a veneer on that tooth for more stability. While we await the 2nd attempt at the veneer (the first one the cosmetic dentist was not happy with) her temporary shattered at 1a this morning. This was the 2nd time in 3 days. Problem is that our wonderful cosmetic dentist teaches at Penn on Tuesday in Philly and isn’t here. His assistant was able to help however without pain meds. My daughter tried to handle the exposed nerve pain but after too long gripping my hand with great force, tears and pain… we found a nearby periodontist to come and administer Novocain. I felt like the worst mom EVER! Finally repaired and home. I won’t even get into my orthodontist appointment details and my pain because it doesn’t matter at this point. My oldest opted to sleep this afternoon and not go to school. Phew. Can this day be over, please?
Sorry for the long tirade… I made these crackers yesterday and they came out great! I wanted to share with you all because I feel like we all need a good cracker in our life. Great snack with jam, almond butter or hummus. Super easy to make. Store perfectly for a week. I hope you give these a try!
1/3 cup of almond meal
1/2 cup oat flour (oats blended down to flour in a blender/food processor)
1 tablespoon of pumpkin seeds
1 tablespoon of sunflower seeds
1 teaspoon black sesame seeds
1 teaspoon hemp hearts
2 tablespoon of flax/chia blend or chia seeds
1/2 teaspoon of sea salt
1/2 cup plus 2 tbl of water
Topping: 1 tablespoon of everything bagel seasoning
Preheat your oven to 325 degrees & line your baking sheet with parchment paper. Into a bowl add all of your ingredients through water. Stir to combine and allow to rest for 15 minutes or until the water is absorbed into the flax/chia.
Spoon your batter onto the prepared pan and spread out evenly into a thin layer (about 1/4 inch). The thinner the crispier the cracker will be. Top with a generous sprinkle of the everything bagel seasoning. Bake for 1 hour or until golden along the edges and crispy. Remove and allow to cool thoroughly. Break into pieces and enjoy!
You can crack in randomly sized pieces or slice prior to baking for more even sized crackers.
Store in an airtight container. I love serving these with stew, soups, hummus or guac. 🙂
