Pumpkin Millet Crackers


Pumpkin Millet Crackers
created by Snacking Squirrel


1/2 cup cooked millet
1 large beaten egg
2 Tbsp pumpkin seeds
2 Tbsp flax seeds
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/2 cup water
1 Tbsp lemon juice
1-2 tsp mustard
Dash basil + thyme
Pinch black pepper



Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 365 Fahrenheit 
2. Mix dry and wet ingredients separately in two bowls, then combine together
3. Place dough between two pieces of parchment paper or baking sheets 
4. Using a rolling pin, spread and flatten dough as thin as you like your crackers
5. Gently remove the top layer of parchment paper 
6. Cut vertical and horizontal lines along dough with pizza cutter or knife
7. Bake for 20-25 minutes until golden brown
8. Slowly pull apart your crackers from each other


I highly suggest sitting on it... seriously, my arms were getting sore from rolling haha


Mine weren't as pretty as i'd like them to be but they taste fantastic!


They go great with the Spinach Hummus and can easily be
 adapted to add in your favorite ingredients and seasonings :)

I'm fascinated with homemade crackers. I've had a recipe bookmarked for a while and am just waiting to use it...

Happy Wednesday, my dear!

If I made these, they would be gone by dinner time! I seriously cracked up when you "seriously" suggested sitting on the dough. Whatever works, right?

Those look so great! I've never thought of making my own crackers before, but it looks like I should go pick up some millet and give it a try. :)

I have never made my own crackers because I DONT OWN A ROLLING PIN. That is literally the only reason why. It keeps me from baking so much - pie crusts, crackers, flatbreads!

Those look great to me! I don't know why but I am soooo intimidated by making my own crackers. I should just stop and give it a try!

I've never made homemade crackers but these look so yummy, Kelsey! And that hummus looks so tempting, I'm going to be making some soon, I just ran out of my store bought hummus!

These are brilliant... and I *just* picked up some brown rice flour the other day! I'll definitely be trying these at some point in the near future!

Must find MILLET ASAP! You are a genius!!!

Kath (My Funny Little Life) said... [reply]

Looks like a lovely and nourishing snack! I just wish I could get brown rice flour somewhere, but so far I wasn't successful. *sigh*

This post just reminded me that I don't have a rolling pin at my apartment! Otherwise I'd be making these RIGHT NOW!

Tomorrow I'm taking this recipe to the health food shop and buying all the ingredients. Guilt free and gorgeous - a perfect combination!

Ayla said... [reply]

They look pretty to me! And delicious. If I could just find some freaking millet then I would make these asap. I have no idea where people buy it though!

Olivia said... [reply]

Is it weird that the corner pieces of those crackers are looking extremely appealing to me!? haha that spinach hummus looks amaze too! I'm making it tomorrow for some snackage:)
