Original Recipe from Dr. Joel Fuhrman

Yield: 16 large or 30 smaller crackers


  • 1 cup ground flax seeds
  • 1/4 cup sesame seeds
  • 2 Tbls. each: coarsely chopped pumpkin seeds and raw sunflower seeds
  • 3/4 cup filtered water, or more if needed
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 2 teaspoons salt


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Heat a shallow pan on medium. When hot, toss all your seeds, except the ground flax, into the pan to toast lightly. Shake the pan to keep the seeds moving. When it becomes fragrant, remove the pan from the heat, shake it again and let them cool for 3-4 minutes.
  3. Mix all ingredients in a mixing bowl until a dough ball forms, adding more water if needed. Spread evenly on a parchment lined baking sheet using a rubber spatula. Even up the sides so you can cut evenly shaped crackers. Using a table knife score into 16 squares.
  4. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until crisp and lightly browned.
  5. Shut the oven off and leave the crackers in the oven with the door shut for another 30 minutes.
  6. Remove, let cool and carefully break them apart. Store in a sealed container for up to 2 weeks.
