Chia crispbread/crackers

Today as part of my baking day I made these delicious little crunchy snacks!! They are soo good and full of seeds and super yummy and because they are made with chia seeds they are also very filling and a great source of fiber and omega 3!!

 They kinda look a bit gross at first as they are slimy and grey but I can say they taste soo good when they are cooked (and look more appealing too;))


1/2 cup chia seeds (I used white but you can use either)
1/4 cup sunflower seeds
1/4 pumpkin seeds
1 teaspoon of salt
1/4 cup oats
2 tablespoons sesame seeds
3/4 cup water
1/4 cup flour
2 tablespoons light olive oil


1. preheat oven to 130 degrees Celsius
2.Mix all of the ingredients in a small bowl and leave for 40min for the chia seeds to soak up the water to make a thick paste/dough (? I am not quite sure it can be seen as a dough but it thickens up and holds together)
3. Line a baking tray with baking paper and place the thickened dough in the centre
4.Place another sheet of baking paper on top and roll out flat to as thin as it can be,  you will be able to tell when it is the right thickness as it is evenly spread out and the width of a seed so it cant really be any thinner ( if that makes any sense haha)
5.Remove the top sheet of paper and bake in the oven for five minute to harden of so slightly
6. lightly cut the dough into small pieces so they snap easily into shape when they are done
7. place back in the oven and continue to cook them for 30-40 minutes until they are nice and crisp, hardened up and a golden colour 
8.Leave them on the tray to cool and they break into the small pieces and store in a airtight container

And that's it!! Super easy and really yummy!! 

This is my take on the recipe from nyoutritious.com, so if you would like the original please visit their site, but I found the recipe above worked best for me as I changed the quantities and some of the ingredients and the process so hopefully you can give it a try!! They worked amazing!!

Happy baking, Lots of love Livvy xoxo
