Swedish Crackers

screen-shot-2016-11-29-at-5-08-23-pmAlthough my best friend from college lives 7,706 thousand miles from me, we get together at least once a year. Our conversations range from kid updates to travel stories to food adventures. Kirsten always has something new for me to try and it always comes with a fantastic story… the pure moroccan argan oil, the rare candy from an Iranian friend, the exotic LuLu dates (that you can’t find anywhere on American soil). One of her latest treats for me stemmed from a gift she received from a Swedish friend on a day she needed some cheer. Artistically presented, these crackers not only make the perfect gift, they also make the perfect snack. Thanks Kirsten!swedish-crackers


  • 1/4 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1/4 cup sesame seeds
  • 1/4 cup whole flax seeds
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin seeds
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 2 pinches of salt
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 1 cup water (must be boiling)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Parchment/baking paper
  • Sea salt

Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl. Pour boiling water over mixture and add the oil. Mix to a sticky dough. Cover a full size baking sheet with a sheet of parchment/baking paper; place a second sheet of baking paper on top and flatten the dough with a rolling pin or by pressing with a second baking sheet. Score with a knife to cut into squares and sprinkle with sea salt. Bake at 320º – check at 45 minutes (typically needs closer to an hour). Dough needs to be completely dry but remove before it browns too much. If it needs a little more time, turn off the oven and leave crackers inside to cool.20161124_121923-copy20161124_123802-copyswedish-crackers-recipescreen-shot-2016-11-29-at-4-47-44-pm
