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


  1. Preheat oven at 165°C.
  2. Mix sunflower seed, sesame seeds, almonds and husk together.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Use a knife to cute the mixture in squares. It will help separate them later. Sprinkle salt evenly.
  6. 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.
