Sesame Flaxseed Crackers

Amazingly tasty and healthy crackers made with sesame seeds, ground sunflower seeds and flaxseed meal. They are glazed with honey and a touch of salt so they have a wonderful combination of sweet and salty flavours.

Recipe from Apple Pie, Patis & Pate (also see fLAVORATOr)

1 3/4 cups whole wheat flour
6 tbsp sunflower seeds, ground
6 tbsp sesame seeds, whole
3 tbsp flaxseed meal
1/4 tsp salt
5 ounces water
1 1/2 tbsp honey
2 tbsp canola oil

2 tbsp honey
2 tbsp warm water

Mix all ingredient ingredients in a bowl until the dough forms a ball. Kead for 3 minutes. Let rest for 30 minutes. Divide into 2 pieaces. Prepare 2 baking sheets, greased or lined with parchment paper. On a lightly oiled surface, roll each piece of dough into a thin rectangular shape to fit the pan. Trasfer dough carefully onto baking sheets. Using a pizza wheel, cut dough into small squares. Bake for 20 minutes at 350F, rotating them half-way through baking time.
Brush with honey-water glaze and sprinkle with salt immediately after removing from the oven. The crackers will get crisp as they cool.

I’ve been on the hunt for a good cracker recipe for a while. I’ve tried several, but none of them turned out all that well. I wasn’t sure if the kids would go for these either, but to my surprise it was Cole who loved them the most! Tony and Cole had a picnic in our backyard together and Cole grabbed these crackers for them to eat. They ate them all! I only made half a batch, but still that’s a lot of crackers to eat in one sitting. I managed to sneak a few before Cole took them and I really liked them too. They sort of reminded me of sesame snaps, but not as sweet.  I think it’s the honey glaze that makes these crackers special. It adds just the right touch of sweetness that pairs very nicely with the sesame seeds.
