“Cheesy” Seed Crackers

Crackers are quick snack to reach for and can be taken everywhere – they’re perfect to pop into a school lunchbox. Top it with whatever spread your little one enjoys and you’ve got a quick and easy snack!

With these seed crackers, I wanted to make that snack healthier while maintaining it’s easy go-to nature. And so I came up with these cheesy seed crackers!

What’s so neat about these crackers is that they taste super cheesy (thanks to our “secret” ingredient), but there’s NO dairy in the recipe!

How to Make Homemade Seed Crackers

Preheat oven to 300°F.

Mix all ingredients except water and salt in a large bowl.

TIP: I like my crackers with texture but if that’s not for you then grind the pumpkin and sesame seeds slightly before adding.

Mix well. Add water and mix until everything is coated. Let sit for five minutes to allow the chia seeds to absorb the water.

Spread mixture onto a silicone baking sheet or into a 9 x 9 pan. Make sure you spread/press down evenly and there are no gaps in the mixture.

TIP: I made thicker crackers but if you prefer them thin and slightly crispy this recipe can be spread into 10 x 9 also.

Sprinkle salt over the spread. Bake in oven for 32 minutes. Remove from oven, cut into crackers and flip them on the sheet. Bake for another 20-22 minutes watching closely the last few minutes. Let cool on the baking sheet for ten minutes before removing.

This recipe makes about 12 large crackers.
