I don’t know why – but to my ear everything sounds better in Swedish. Even though English is definitely my stronger language – the sound of spoken Swedish is one of the best things I know – especially if it is coming from a Skåning (someone from the south). I even prefer to read in Swedish as there is something so poetic in the way Swedish authors put their words to paper and the rhythm that they create that I don’t seem find in the English language. What I hate however is writing in Swedish…an absolute nightmare! Which is why you will never see a post in Swedish, or the fact that I only write emails and texts in English to my Swedish friends (something they find quite amusing)!
So getting back to my post – I originally made these bad boys to go with my new low carb high fat (LCHF) lifestyle that I have embarked on the last 3.5 weeks. I was going to post it in my other blog LCHF…What?! – but thought that these are soo good and so simple to make that everyone will enjoy them.
I originally got the recipe from a Swedish blog called Vardags Liv Med LCHF (everyday life with LCHF), which has given me so much inspiration for different LCHF friendly meals – and I can honestly say these crackers have become a life saver! I use them instead of bread and put lots of lovely toppings on like ham and cheese, pate etc etc. but I can also see how you can doctor them up by adding some herbs and salt to make it slightly more exciting.
Seed Crackers (can anyone give me a better translation?!)
- 200 g sunflower seeds
- 60 g flax seed
- 100 g sesame seed
- 2 tblsp psyllium husks
- 5 dl watter (500 ml)
Blend all the above ingredients in a bowl, and let stand for 10 minutes (the seeds and psyllium husks will absorb all the water giving it a thick texture).
Pre heat your oven to 170ºC
On 2 baking trays with baking sheets, spread the mixture as thinly as you can, use a spatula or back of a spoon to help even it out. You don’t want there to be any holes.
Place your baking trays in the oven for 60 – 70 minutes, or however long it needs for the mixture to get hard and crispy. Keep an eye out for burning.
Break the bread up into desire size. I like mine to be slightly smaller than a piece of toast!
There you go – lovely crispy crackers you can have with just about anything :)
