What are homemade superfood crackers?
These chia seed crackers are a full bite of proteins and nutrients without any filler ingredients. No added binders besides water are even needed thanks to the chia seeds doing the binding for us! If you want to try a healthy crackers recipe, this is the one to try. It’s simple and only uses a few REAL ingredients. Perfect for any diet.
Homemade Superfood Crackers Ingredients
-Sesame seeds: We need 1/4 cup of hulled sesame seeds.
-Pumpkin seeds: With 1/4 cup of pumpkin seeds we can add a bigger seed into the mix. They’re high in antioxidants.
-Sunflower seeds: Just 1/4 cup of sunflower seeds (without shells) will make these crackers tastier.
-Chia seeds: Using 1/4 cup of chia seeds will help us to get a lot of nutrients and the binder needed to hold the crackers together.
-Water: Helping us to combine the ingredients is a 1/2 cup of water.
-Salt: We only need 1/2 teaspoon of salt to help these crackers, but I divide this into the water and sprinkle the remaining 1/4 teaspoon for the topping.
-Oil: We only need a very small amount of oil for the pan. Olive oil is healthy and will do the job nicely.
How to Make Homemade Superfood Crackers
Preheat your oven to 325 degrees F.
In a medium-sized mixing bowl, combine the chia and sesame seeds, stirring to combine evenly. This is an important step, so don’t skip it. The chia seeds need to bind with another small seed so that they don’t clump to themselves.
Add in the remaining seeds and mix until evenly distributed.
Add in the salt (or half like I did) and stir until dissolved.
Add the water to the seed mixture and stir well. The mixture will thicken in about 5 minutes. Wait until all of the water looks absorbed.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and oil it lightly. The oil is an optional ingredient, but it makes the crackers easier to flip.
Dump the seed mixture onto the oiled parchment paper and spread it out until it’s about 1/4 inch thick. Use the backside of a spoon to do this and try to not allow any “holes” in the cracker mixture.
Bake in your oven for about 30 minutes remove from oven and then flip using 2 spatulas.
Cut into cracker shapes and then sprinkle with more salt if desired.
Return to oven and bake for another 5 minutes at 325 degrees F.
Decrease the oven temp to 250 degrees F and bake for an additional 20-25 minutes or until they look dry.
Remove from oven and cool completely.
Store leftovers in an airtight container.
- 1/4 cup raw, unhulled sesame seeds
- 1/4 cup raw pumpkin seeds
- 1/4 cup raw sunflower seeds
- 1/4 cup chia seeds
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 tsp salt
- Small amount of oil for pan
- Pre-heat oven to 325 degrees F.
- Place chia and sesame seeds in a medium mixing bowl and stir to combine evenly. This is an important step! If the chia seeds aren't mixed in with another small seed, they will tend to clump together. Add remaining seeds and mix until they are all evenly distributed.
- Stir salt into water until dissolved.
- Add water to seed mixture and stir well. Mixture will thicken in about 5 minutes. Wait until all the liquid is absorbed.
- Line a baking sheet with parchment and oil it lightly. (The oil is optional- but it does make the crackers easier to flip if you spray the parchment with a little cooking spray first.)
- Dump seed mixture onto oiled parchment. Spread mixture to an even thickness of about 1/4" using the back side of a spoon. Try to not make any holes in the cracker- spreading it isn't hard and you'll get the hang of it after a bit. I made mine into a circle that was 11" in diameter.
- Bake in preheated oven for about 30 minutes. Remove from oven and flip over using 2 spatulas.
- Cut into cracker shapes. Sprinkle with a bit more salt if desired, and return to oven, baking for another 5 minutes at 325 degrees.
- Decrease oven temp to 250 degrees and bake an additional 20-25 minutes, until they look dry.
- Remove from oven and cool. Any leftovers could be stored in an airtight container.

What goes with healthy crackers?
These crackers would taste incredible with some homemade guacamole! Especially since the crunchy and slightly salted crackers could pair great with a little flavor, smoothness, and heat from the guac. Try it for yourself and see!
