If you start reading labels, you would realise how few ready-to-eat snacks fit the low-carb bill. Also, perils of carb intensive diets are no secret; if you need a refresher, you can look at some of them on Foods 4 Better Health.
Anyway. I am big on snacking, so tried to make an alternative that would curb the craving for crunch and salt. And that is how I cam across sesame crackers. I have always liked sesame, but they are too small for direct consumption; so this recipe uses sesame, and a few other nuts, held together by husk and dusted with sea salt.
Super healthy, pretty delicious and easy to make. Here’s what you need:
- 2 tbsp sunflower seeds
- 2 tbsp sesame seeds
- 1 tbsp chopped almonds
- 1.5 tbsp husk
- 1/2 tsp Himalayan salt (or normal table salt)
- 150ml water
- Preheat oven at 165°C.
- Mix sunflower seed, sesame seeds, almonds and husk together.
- Slowly add water to the mixture, and mix continuously. Add water until the mixture is gooey. Be careful as the mixture will thicken. Set aside for 10 minutes.
- Spread the mixture on a baking paper and flatten the mixture as much as possible. I am not an expert, so I pile the mixture on one half of the paper, cover it with the other half and flatten it with a plate. Such hacks save my life all the time.
- Use a knife to cute the mixture in squares. It will help separate them later. Sprinkle salt evenly.
- Place it in the oven, and let it bake for 75 minutes.
Once done, take it out of oven and let it cool. Break it into pieces and store in a zip lock bag.
