We’ve been enjoying glorious sunny weather in Byron Bay this winter, but brrr. It has been cold! I don’t know about you, but cold weather always makes me want to snack. I’ve been trying to be good. Instead of reaching for something sweet, I’ve been enjoying the satisfying crunch of home made crackers dipped in hummous or topped with avocado. I feel so virtuous! Below is my recipe for easy, healthy home-made crackers, power packed with nutrition and healthy fats for glowing skin.

Home-made healthy crackers
This is my staple cracker recipe. It’s healthy and easy to mix up and roll out (even for a three year old).
I love that this recipe is super flexible and works with different types of
1. flours – eg wholewheat/buckwheat/rice flour/millet
2. seeds – eg poppy/sesame/sunflower/flaxseed – if I use pepitas I crush them up a bit so they’re not so big. You can use them raw or toasted.
3. seasonings – eg salt/spices/herbs
You can use all one type of flour/seed or a mix. I like to mix wholewheat flour 50:50 with buckwheat flour for the extra protein and B vitamins.
A mix and match recipe. Give it a go!
1/4 cup seeds
2/3 cup flour
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
2-3 tablespoons water as needed
Step 1. Preheat your oven to 175 degrees Celsius.
Step 2. Combine seeds, flour and salt/herbs in a bowl.
Step 3. Drizzle in the olive oil, cutting in with a knife until the mixture looks like breadcrumbs, then slowly add water as needed, mixing until you can gather into a ball.
Step 4. Roll mixture between 2 sheets of baking paper. Remove the top sheet and score into shapes with a sharp knife. This will help you break them up post-baking once cool enough to touch.
Step 5. Bake in a 175 degree Celsius oven for 15 minutes or until golden around the edges.
Step 6. Remove from oven and allow to cool. Once cool, break crackers apart along the scoring lines made in step 4.
Serve with spreads, dips or salsa. Store in an airtight container for up to two weeks (if they last that long).

“We can’t tell you how much we are crushing this sunscreen right now! @greenfootmama has been put through rigorous testing in the tough Indonesian sun and now here in the clear skies of Sri Lanka. Its a lush mousse that rubs in clear and holds in the hottest of humidities without much stickiness at all. We can’t recommend it enough!”
