About this Recipe

These are lovely with your favourite soft cheese, or hummus, or try my avacoda & artichoke salsa.  They should keep for a week in an air-tight tin. 

Gram & Linseed Crackers

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup gram flour (chickpea flour)

2. Mix all the ingredients and leave to stand for 5 minutes

5. Check on the crackers, they may need a little longer depending on how crispy you like them.

Health Benefits

Gram flour is made from chickpeas and is packed with nutrients—B vitamins, particularly folate,  + phosphorous, manganese, copper, magnesium & iron.  It has been used for centuries in Indian cooking, a useful gluten free alternative in baking.

Chia seeds are another ancient grain from other parts of the world.  One of the few complete sources of non-meat essential amino acids.  Packed full of protein & fibre, as well as manganese, magnesium, calcium & phosphorous.

When soaked these tiny seeds swell up and form a gel that can be useful in binding vegan baking (replacing the need for an egg).

Linseeds (flaxseeds) are 1 of the worlds oldest crops are can be either golden or dark brown.  An amazing little seed, providing omega 3, fibre, B Vitamins, calcium, & magnesium.  The highest source of lignins of any plants, research shows lignins help lower the risk of hormone related cancers & improve general health.  Great for women in mid life when oestrogen levels change.

However to unlock all these nutrients the seeds should be ground, or soaked for several hours.
