Cracked Pepper and Sea Salt Multi-seed Crackers

It’s been one of “those” weeks, a week of many emotions and we’re only on Wednesday! Earlier this week I finished with the company I have been working at for the past 4.5 years. It’s very bittersweet as although I am leaving for a new and exciting role elsewhere, I have made some lifelong friends and saying goodbye to them and an environment I have come to know so well was just heart wrenching. I wish I could just pull myself together sometimes, but I take after my mother and when one tear comes, they all do!

But then on the flip side, I have a few precious days off before beginning my new role so I took a cycle ride in to Richmond yesterday in the beautiful sunshine to pick up two magazines I have been featured in this month! The first being a teeny tiny little mention in Women’s Fitness and then a contrasting 5 whole recipes in “Free From Heaven“. I found the whole thing incredibly surreal and exciting seeing my name, my recipes and my pictures in a glossy magazine….so much so I just had to buy 4 copies! I will share the articles in the press section of my blog as soon as I have scanned them in.

In the meantime I have a crunch-tastic new recipe for you. I made these for a dinner party “pre-dinner nibbles” we hosted last weekend served with dips, olives and crudités. I have since made these twice for my husband as he’s such a savoury snack lover and these are the perfect “grain free” remedy. There are only really 4 key ingredients for the basic dough and then you can flavour it how you like. I make mine with cracked pepper, flaked sea salt and mixed seeds (for extra crunch and texture). They are great for having with dips or as a bread substitute for a mezze or picnic. I use sesame flour in my recipe and I know this is a slightly harder ingredient to get your hands on. However, you could substitute for coconut flour, you just need to be mindful that coconut flour is a little denser. If you would like to get your hands on some sesame flour though then I really recommend it. I got mine from Sukrin online, it’s great for baking and is very affordable as far as a seed based flour goes. You can also pick it up at Amazon and Health Supplies too.

Delicious and simple grain free multi-seed crackers. Perfect for sharing.
Ingredients
  • ½ cup Sesame flour (you can substitute for coconut flour)
  • 1 cup Ground almonds
  • 1 tbsp Olive oil
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ cup Mixed seeds (I use golden and brown linseed, pumpkin seed and sunflower seed)
  • 1 tbsp Poppy seeds
  • ½ tsp Sea salt
  • 1 tsp cracked black pepper
  • 1 tsp ground cumin (or ½ tsp cumin seeds)
Instructions
  1. Pre-heat oven to 170ºc / 338 ºF
  2. In to a mixing bowl beat egg and olive oil together until pale and combined
  3. Add in ground almonds, sesame flour, mixed seeds, a pinch of sea salt, poppy seeds and cumin
  4. Mix and combine until a dough has formed
  5. Using two sheets of baking paper (enough to line a baking tray x 2 sheets) place one sheet on top of the other with the dough in the middle
  6. Press the dough down slightly before using a rolling pin to roll it out in to a flat square, it needs to be about 0.5 cm thick
  7. Take the top layer of baking paper off and put asside
  8. Cut off the ragged edges and keep those bits to the side as you can roll them back out and make a few more biscuits after
  9. Now carefully cut your biscuit shapes (I cut about 9 - 12, depending on how big you want them)
  10. Repeat action with other bit of dough (if you have any off cuts) and spare greaseproof paper
  11. Place on baking sheet (s) and pop in oven for 20 minutes until golden brown
  12. Once out, don't be alarmed if there's a little foam on top- this will evaporate almost straight away
  13. Once cooled they will break away from each other very easily and can be eaten straight away or stored in an air tight container for up to 1 week
Notes
You will need: 1 baking tray, 2 pieces of baking paper, 1 rolling pin, 1 mixing bowl, 1 oven

If you use coconut flour, be aware that it is a little more dense so you want to add a little at a time until you have created a dough, that you can mould. You do not want it to be too dry and cracking.

  2. Hey I love your website! I’ve just recently been diagnosed with T1D and am trying to make changes to my diet to help me cope with it. Just wondering if this would be considered low-carb, and if so would you have any idea roughly how many carbs per serve?

    • Hi Debra, thank you for your note and sorry to hear about your recent diagnosis. These are certainly very low carb ( I personally don’t have to give myself any insulin if I have 1-2 of them) as they are just made up of nuts/seeds and then an egg and olive oil to bind it all together. I am not the world’s best mathematician but based on the ingredients I used there are around: 1.10g carbs per 1 serving (12 crackers in total) . Hope this helps!

  3. Wow! These look stunning – always after a great cracker recipe. Nice to see another Paleo UK based blogger too! Am absolutely going to give these a go!
