It is school holidays, my beautiful five year old daughter has asked to write a few posts over the next three weeks, I hope you do not mind. This one is her first.
I take seed crackers and salad to school. They are great. My brother likes having seed crackers, he puts too many into his mouth. He is a bit crazy with the seed crackers. It makes me laugh!
When it is school lunchtime I eat my salad first and save my seed crackers until last. Sometimes we eat one on the way to school. My Dad and I have seed crackers and dip, or with the delicious cheese we buy at the market. We always have seed crackers in the cupboard, they are easy for Mum to make and great for snacking on.
1/2 cup chia seeds
1/2 cup flax seeds
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon*
1 teaspoon vanilla*
1 cup of water
Preheat your oven to 175 Degrees Celsius or 350 Degrees Fahrenheit
Place the seeds, salt and spice into your blender or food processor, pulse quickly to roughly break up the pumpkin and sunflower seeds. With the mixture still gently turning add in the water. Leave the mixture gently stirring while you line a large oven tray with baking paper. By this time the mixture will have thickened. Pour the mixture onto the tray lined with baking paper. Place another piece of baking paper over the top, using your hands spread the mixture out until you have reached your desired thickness. Bake for 30 minutes. Remove from the oven, turn onto a chopping board and cut into squares. Allow to cool and enjoy.
*these are also delicious with savoury spices / flavouring
