  • 13 cup (1½ oz.) 80 ml (45 g) unsalted pumpkin seeds
  • 13 cup (2 oz.) 80 ml (55 g) flaxseed or chia seeds
  • 13 cup (123 oz.) 80 ml (50 g) sesame seeds

  • 1 cup 240 ml boiling water
This recipe has been added to the shopping list.

Instructions

Instructions are for 30 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Preheat the oven to 300°F (150°C).
  2. Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl. Add boiling water and oil. Mix together with a wooden fork.
  3. Keep working the dough until it forms a ball and has a gel-like consistency.
  4. Place the dough on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Add another paper on top and use a rolling pin to flatten the dough evenly.
  5. Remove the upper paper and bake on the lower rack for about 40-45 minutes, check occasionally. Seeds are heat sensitive so pay close attention towards the end.
  6. Turn off the oven and leave the crackers to dry in the oven. Once dried and cool, break into pieces and spread a generous amount of butter on top.

Storing

In order to maintain the crispiness of these crackers you must store them in an airtight container. Also make sure they are completely dried and cooled before storing.

Substituting ingredients

If you want to make a nut-free version of these crackers you can substitute sesame seed flour for the almond flour. Or just try our recipe for sesame crisp bread.

If you don't have all sorts of seeds at hand - don't worry! As long as the total amount of seed use is the same as in the recipe you can use more of one sort and less of the other.

Serving suggestions

Only your imagination sets limits for how to serve these crispy bites. A nice butter spread and a slice of cheese goes a long way but don't stop there. Try sliced salami or your favorite ham and a generous wedge of Brie cheese or maybe our chicken liver pâte.

    My favourite addition for flavour is Nigella seeds (aka onion seeds, black caraway, black cumin, kalojeera, kalonji or kalanji) A couple of teaspoons is enough. I usually do this by eye. Whenever I share these with guests these ones are the favourites. I also use olive oil instead of coconut oil. I like to grind some of the basic seed mix and leave some whole.
    I only make these when I am sharing a meal because I find it hard to stop eating them. All low carb breads, crackers, cakes, and any food that is sweetened at all, trigger my overeating. I really wish they didn't!

    Made these yesterday 4.17.21. I am experienced in making seed crackers. I usually do them in the dehydrator, and it's so hard to wait more than 24 hours for them to be finished. Therefore, it was so nice not to have to wait so long. They held together well. I made them as directed with no changes. They are "buttery" and delicious. I will enjoy them with guacamole. The next time I make them I will most likely ground perhaps 1/3 of the seeds. But honestly, they are wonderful "as is".

    DELICIOUS homemade crackers that passed the kid test!

    Just a quick question - it says 1g of carbs but nowhere does it say for how much of a serving? The recipe is set to 30 servings, should we assume it's 1g per serving? Thanks!!

    Yes, all of our recipes show the nutrition information per serving. The number of crackers in each serving will depend how small or large they are cut.

    I weigh all the crackers together when they are cooled. I divide their total weight by the serving size of 30. I use that as a guide weight per serving using the DD nutrition information. I can throw a cracker on the scale and get a sense of how many servings it actually is.

    No, coconut oil becomes solid when cool, it helps with cohesion. Avocado won’t do that

    Simply the best! Made these cracker dozens of time with different dried herbs and spices.
    Love them!
  9. Lesha
    These are awesome! After reading the comments next time(and there will definitely be a next time) I'm going to do the scoring and add some herbs. Really yummy, added a little cheese on top and ready to go.

    Made these for a second time using chia seeds instead of flaxseed. Everyone likes them much more this time around.

    Heather I make these biscuits every week just love something with a crunch Thanks for recipe
  13. Marion Hera-gorr
    I love this recipe, I use less salt, and sometimes put herbs like rosemary in. I like to take it out about half way and score lines so it breaks into squares, 5 stars!
  14. Laura
    I'm still in the dark about how much a serving is. Since the crackers can be broken in different sizes, maybe weight should be used. What was used to determine the 1g of carbs? One ounce?
    Thanks for the help. Trying keto for the first time and getting my amounts clear is a challenge.

    Followed the directions - mine are not crispy up. They seem a bit thick to me - I did roll them all the way to the edge of the sheet. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks

    Depending on the humidity where you are, it could take a little longer time to cook and dry out all the way.

    Thank you for your feedback. The recipe makes 30 servings. If you cut your batch into 60 pieces, then 2 is a serving.

    I wish the video did not jump-cut from the pan to the rack. It is only a few more seconds.

    What size sheet pan are we supposed to use? I’ve got 3 different sizes, plus cookie sheets.
    And how thin are we aiming for? As thin as possible?

    You can use any sheet pan that's approximately 13x9". You want them to be pretty thin, though some people do prefer them thicker but the crackers may not end up as crispy.

  22. Janet
    I rolled my dough out to 15x9 and baked 45 min at 300°. So even thinner than you suggested.

    They are still bendy. I’m putting them back in the oven at 300° on a rack now without parchment paper to try to dry them out the rest of the way.

    I hope they come out they way they are supposed to.

    These are wonderful! Made them to take on a road trip to try to stay on my low carb diet. The “dough” looks & feels gross, but don’t let that deter you. I had some I didn’t take with me that I left in a ziplock bag in my cabinet - just found the bag & they’re just as crispy & good as they were 3 weeks ago when I made them! They do not raise my blood sugar at all. Great recipe!!

    Made these for the first time today, easy to do. Really enjoying with some cheese for lunch.

    This recipe has rapidly become a family favourite....I add a bit of ground flaxseed at the end to get the consistency right - i do it at the end

    Such a great staple recipe! I am skipping pumpkin seeds to make it more economical and handy, but it still works great. Helpful when craving a crunch! Hubby suggested using a pizza cutter to help with the "look" for serving to guests - works great.

    Such a great staple recipe! I am using only sesame seeds and sunflower seeds, but it still works great. Helpful when craving a crunch! Hubby suggested using a pizza cutter to help with the "look" for serving to guests - works great - either before or after the drying stage. Interested how to keep them crunchy over time...

    This is a fantastic Keto recipe. I followed the recipe exactly but added some onion powder, and they turned out super great. Yummy!

    Love these crackers and make them often. I've learned if you pour the mixture onto the parchment paper right after you add the boiling water, there is no need to roll out the dough. The psyllium husk goes to work quickly to thicken things up, but if you stir in the boiling water and pour out the seed mixture while still thin, it spreads nicely. I then use a spoon with coconut oil on it to spread the seed mixture around a little more and to fill in any holes.

    I added 2 Tablespoons of Lee and Perrins and 1/3 cup of unsweetened shredded coconut.
    Very happy with results.
  33. Antony
    I wanted to like it more than I did. Made exactly as per written recipe. Tastes decent and filling but too bendy, no crunch. What to try next time? Roll thinner? Bake longer? I think mine were about 1-1.5mm thin, and I baked for over 40 minutes. I only stopped because of fear of burning (the recipe had that disclaimer about seeds being sensitive). I wish all the recipes on here were as reliable as fathead pizza...

    Hi, Antony! You may want to try rolling it thinner if you can.

  35. Antony
    I will try. I checked again today, maybe they're more like 1.5-2mm thin.

    Thanks for the tips everyone. I added some nigella seeds and chopped up fresh rosemary, and also poured mixture into tray straight after quickly mixing the water in. Then pulled out after 20 minutes to score with a knife. All worked well and made the process super easy.
  37. Amanda
    Oh and if they are too bendy you can just turn off oven but leave tray in for it to crisp up further
  38. Amanda
    Now added as well as rosemary and nigella seeds three tablespoons of grated Parmesan and an extra teaspoon of psyllium husk. Everyone gives them a 10/10

    So my calculations is half the amount of carbs you guys show. I'm coming up with 15 grams of carbs for the entire recipe?????? Not 30 that you show. I'm using values from the bags of seeds & almond flour. Any chance you guys miscalculated?

    The actual value per single serving is .6g carbs, it's just rounded up to 1g as all our recipes round to the nearest whole number. That difference doesn't mean much over a serving or two but is definitely magnified when looking at the whole 30 serving batch.

    Thanks for responding Kristin! These were amazing by the way. I almost had heart failure after dumping a cup of boiling water into the seeds and it turned into water soup! But just like the recipe said, mixed it and it magically became a gelatinous mass of dough! Thanks again!
  42. Janel
    I love this recipe! I added nutritional yeast, Mrs dash and napolitain herb balsamic ( 1 tsp) for flavour. It turned out so well. 🙏💜
