Here on Fatties we don’t believe in things tasting bad. They can be healthy, they can be not so healthy, but they can’t taste bad. When a friend brought these raw flax seed crackers by, we were skeptical. As it turns out their delicious and uber healthy. So today, we bring you the recipe of this ultra healthy snack.
It’s a bit of a process but it’s worth it. You’ll be able to mow down on these at your desk totally guilt free.
1 cup flax seeds soaked in 2 1/2 cups water
1/4 cup chia seeds soaked in 1 1/4 cup water
1/2 cup raw almonds
1 1/2 cups raw cashews
1 cup raw sunflower seeds
1/2 cup raw pumpkin seeds
1 large or 2 medium red peppers, diced
1 medium red onion, half diced finely and half diced larger
2-3 cloves garlic
Juice of 1 large lemon
4 tbsp nutritional yeast
1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
1 tsp salt
1 bunch leafy greens chopped small
10-15 basil leaves chopped small
1 cup medium diced tomatoes
3 green onions, diced
7-10 sheets nori seaweed
Food processor, spatula, dehydrator
2. Soak chia and flax seeds separately for 24 hours. Once they’ve soaked, combine and set aside.
3. Chop all items as directed in ingredient list.
4. In a food processor, combine cashews, lemon juice, apple cider vinegar, yeast, salt, onion and garlic. Blend until mostly smooth.
5. Add almonds, pulse until mostly smooth.
6. Combine veggie and nut mixture with seed slurry until thoroughly mixed. Do not blend. Add sunflower and pumpkin seeds, mix well. Add remaining ingredients, saving tomatoes for last.
7. Take nori sheets and place them rough side up on dehydrator. Do the following steps on the dehydrator, once assembled nothing can be moved.
8. Place a good amount of mixture on the nori.
9. Spread mixture across entire sheet of nori, ensuring you reach the corners. About 1/4 – 1/2 inch is good. The thicker the longer it’ll take to dry out.
10. Cover and dehydrate to desired crunch. 24-48 hours.
It’s labour intensive, we know. But make a big batch, store it in a Ziploc bag and enjoy it for many an afternoon snack at your desk.
