Homemade Crackers Recipe – Top Tips

  • Because you want everything to be crunchy, there’s no need to blitz any of the seeds. Our family loves the rustic vibe of these seed crackers, so we use whole unsalted seeds.
  • Remember, the thinner you spread the mixture on the tray, the more crispy the crackers will turn out.
  • Don’t forget to use a large baking tray and spread the seed mixture evenly; otherwise, you’ll end up with some parts being soft (due to moisture) while other parts crunchy.
  • Once cooled, they will be even more crispy. Crack and enjoy and always store in an airtight container for seven days.
