Superhero Seed Cracker/bread

piles of seedy goodness

So far, this is one of my favorite recipes from my sugar-free book.  Eat some for a snack, and feel like a superhero!  (I spread some yogurt cheese on them; pretty amazing!)  ((side note: yogurt cheese is just plain Greek yogurt that's been strained for a few hours.))

The only issue I've had with these "crackers" is that they don't ever really get crunchy.  Despite baking for over an hour, they still are a bit soft.  But delicious!

Superhero Seed Cracker/bread
adapted from I Quit Sugar, by Sarah Wilson

1/3 c. chia seeds
1/4 c. ground flax seeds
1/2 c. sunflower seeds
1/2 c. sesame seeds
1/2 c. almond meal
1-2 cloves garlic, crushed
2 large basil leaves, fresh
1/4 tsp. salt
1 1/4 c. water

In a small bowl, mix together the water, garlic, salt, and basil with a hand blender.  In a medium bowl, mix up all of your seeds and the almond meal.  Stir in the liquid, and let it sit for a few minutes until the water is absorbed.  Prep a square baking dish with some greased foil or parchment paper.  Press the seed mixture into the pan, and try to make it evenly thick. Bake at *325 for 30 minutes.  If you are really adventurous, you can try to flip the whole thing over, but this never works out for me. Bake for another 30 minutes (1 hour-ish total) until they are browned on top.  

Cut into squares or rectangles and let cool.  Will keep in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
