Simple five seed crackers
Prep Time 15 mins
Cook Time 1 hr


  • 1 cup sunflower seeds
  • ¾ cup pumpkin seeds
  • ½ cup sesame seeds (you can use a mix of black & white sesame seeds)
  • cup flax seeds
  • 1 cup water (can add extra if needed)
  • 1 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp coriander
  • 1 tsp chilli powder (optional)



  • Preheat oven to 170˚C (340˚F) fan bake.
  • Mix all ingredients together and leave for anything from 10mins-12hours for the seeds to soak up the water.
  • Stir mixture well and then divide mixture over 2 lined baking trays and spread thinly.  Ideal thickness is about 3-4mm.  Too thin and the crackers will break apart, too thick and they come out more like a seed cookie.
  • Score the flattened mixture with a knife into desired square sizes, so easy to break up once cooked.
  • Bake for 1 hr (switching the trays around halfway through) or until golden brown and crisp.  If they don't feel crisp after 1 hr, return to oven for another 5-10 mins.
  • Remove from oven, allow to cool. Store in an airtight container.
