Nut allergies are like a common cold now. I won’t get into why or how I see it but I’ll agree that if there is a nut allergy there has to be no nuts.
Schools, daycare , play centres, cafes all advertise whether they are nut free or offer dishes, most commercial biscuits contain traces of nuts so it is hard to find something suitable that’s made of real food and has none of those nasty numbers added to every packaged brand. So we made a nut free cracker for school, daycare and everyday that is perfect and so adaptable for your favourite flavours.
1 Cup Flax Seed- soaked overnight in water and pinch of salt
1/4 cup pepitas
1/4 cup sunflower seeds
1 egg (or use a Tbsp Chia egg gel as replacement)
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp turmeric
1/4 tsp fennel
Combine all ingredients in a food processor and blend until a wet sludge
On a lined baking tray spread mixture to 1/4 inch thick or as thin as you can
Bake in preheated oven at 180c (350f) for 30 mins until golden brown.
Test centre to see if it is cooked properly. Flip, turn off oven and open door. Leave for a further 10 mins to finish crisping.
