  • 1/2C chia seeds
  • 1/2C sunflower seeds
  • 1/2C pumpkin seeds
  • 1/4C flaxseeds
  • 1/4C hemp seeds  
  • 1C water
  • 1 clove garlic, grated with a Microplane 
  • 1/4tsp salt
  • Additional add-ins: onion powder, thyme, rosemary, chili powder, etc. 


  • Preheat the oven to 300. Line baking sheet with parchment paper or silpat. 
  • Combine seeds, water, garlic, salt, and any additional spices in a bowl. Stir to combine. 
  • Let sit for about 8-10 minutes, until the chia seeds have become gelatinous and the water has been soaked up. 
  • Spread the mixture onto the baking sheet, attempting to spread into a layer about 1/8" thick if possible. It will be easier if you make 2 or 3 small rectangles over 1 big rectangle as you will need to flip the rectangle (intact if able) about 1/2 way through the cooking process. 
  • Bake for 30-25 minutes. Remove from oven, flip each rectangle over, and bake for additional 30-35 minutes. 
  • Once the mixture is dry and golden at the edges, remove from the oven. 
  • Cool for about 15 minutes. 
  • Break into bite-sized crackers. 
  • Enjoy!
