What makes these crackers so healthy

These crispy crackers are packed with a mix of sesame and chia seeds. Chia seeds are so rich in nutrients and have various health benefits. While sesame seeds gives great texture and flavour. In addition, there is also some olive oil and buttermilk, both great ingredients.

Extra baking tip

We used 4cm round cookie cutter to cut out the crackers and get 40 small round crackers. However, you can use any shape and size. Once you cut the shapes, arrange them on a baking tray and prick 2-3 times each with a fork.

Bake them for about 8-10 minutes or until they are lightly golden around the edges.

Whole Grain Sesame Chia Crackers

MAKES: 40 crackers
COOKS IN: 40 minutes



  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C/360°F. Line the baking sheet with baking paper.

  2. Combine the flour, baking powder, chia and sesame seeds, salt and pepper in a large bowl. 

  3. Make a well in the centre of flours, add the buttermilk and olive oil. Stir while gradually incorporating the flour into the wet ingredients. Add additional buttermilk if it is too dry.

  4. Turn out the dough onto lightly floured work surface and knead for a few minutes. Set aside to rest for about 10 minutes.

  5. Lightly flour the work surface and the rolling pin. Split the dough into half and roll each piece as thinly as possible (2mm), turning the dough as you roll to prevent sticking. Use a cookie cutter or small glass to cut out rounds. 

  6. Place the crackers on prepared baking sheet and prick each cracker with a fork 2-3 times. 

  7. Bake in the oven for 9-10  minutes or until the edges of crackers turn brown and crackers are crisp, rotating the pans midway through baking. Watch carefully as crackers burn easily. Let cool on the pan and store in an airtight container.

We recommend using the measurement in grams & ml (instead of cups & spoons) for more accuracy and better results.
