Gluten-free flours used in this recipe

This recipe features combination of almond, buckwheat and rice flours, all gluten-free and nutritiously rich. 

Almond flour, made of blanched almonds adds nuttiness, while buckwheat flour gives rich and earthy flavour to the crackers. White rice flour with sandy texture and very mild taste complement great with these two flours. Each of these flours can be bought from health food stores or ordered online.

Making the chia egg

A chia egg is simply made from water and whole chia seeds. Once combined, they become gelatinous - similar to the texture of egg. Chia eggs are used in vegan baked goods instead of eggs. It doesn't have much of taste at all. If you don't want to be able to see the chia seeds, consider using white chia seeds rather than the standard black chia seeds.

Just take 1 tablespoon of chia seeds and place them in a small bowl. Add 4 tablespoons of water and wait for about 5 minutes, until they become like a gel. Then use it in the recipes, just as you would regular egg.


Making the dough

Once you have measured all flours, seeds, olive oil and have ready an chic egg making the dough is easy. In a medium bowl combine all ingredients (except olive oil), make a well in the centre then pour olive oil and chia egg. Stir then working with your hands make a compact dough. 

Shaping the crackers

It's time for rolling the dough. This is best done between two sheets of cling film. Once you roll the dough thinly (we love this rolling pin), using a sharp knife or a pastry wheel cut squares of rectangles. We get 32 small square (3x3cm) crackers from this dough.

Arrange crackers on the lined baking sheet and bake 8-10 minutes. Leave them to cool on the tray. Your healthy crackers are ready to enjoy!

iNGREDIENTS

  • 10g (1 tbsp) chia seeds
  • 45ml (3 tablespoons) water
  • 50g (1/2 cup) almond flour
  • 30g buckwheat flour
  • 35g (1/4 cup) rice flour
  • 35g (1/4 cup) sesame seeds
  • 35g (1/4 cup) sunflower seeds, finely chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 30ml (2 tablespoons) olive oil

METHOD

  1. Preheat the oven to 175°C (347°F). Line 2 baking sheets with baking paper.

  2. Combine chia seeds and water in one glass and leave for 5 minutes.

  3. In a large bowl, combine almond, buckwheat and rice flours, baking soda, salt, sunflower and sesame seeds.

  4. Make a well in the centre of flours and add olive oil and chia seeds. First stir with a spoon then using your hands form a compact dough. Leave aside for 5 - 10 minutes.

  5. Place dough between two sheets of cling film and roll with a rolling pin up to 1-1.5mm thickness. Remove the top clingfilm and cut with a knife little squares 3x3 cm.

  6. Transfer crackers onto baking tray using a thin metal spatula leaving some space between. If there is leftover dough, gather the dough to reform a dough ball. Repeat the rolling/cutting process again with the dough. 

  7. Bake for 8-10 minutes, checking every 2-3 minutes, as they brown easily. Fully cool down on a cooling rack. The crackers will harden as they cool down. Store in a glass jar or airtight container for up to 10 days.
