These crackers are amazing. So tasty with the blend of seeds and the toasted sesame oil, and crunchy like I don’t know what. Avocado slices is my drug of choice for topping on these crackers, but if you allow dairy products in your everyday diet, goat’s milk cheese with slices of peach on top can also be a killer combo. Either way, you will not regret baking these crackers – they are lovely and so easy to whip together. It only took me 30 minutes, including baking time. In other words: No excuses!

For about 30 crackers (depending on your chosen cracker size of course) – You will need…
1/2 cup golden linseeds (or any kind of linseeds)
1/2 cup millet flakes
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1/2 cup sesame seeds
1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
2 heaping teaspoons chia seeds
2 cups gluten free flour (I always use the “White Self-Raising Flower Blend from Doves Farm)
1 cup of water
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 cup toasted sesame oil
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 teaspoons salt

The dough should be moist, but not completely soaked and not more than it will enable you to roll it out between two pieces of baking tray papers.

This is how it’s done…
Stir together all ingredients and divide into two batches of dough. Roll each batch out between two sheets of baking paper as thin as you can, and cut the corner pieces and patch them to create a real square instead of a circle. This is of course optional, I just like my crackers in squares. Cut them out in your preferred cracker size, before baking them in 15 minutes at 200 degrees Celsius. Be sure to have an eye on them as they soon turn dark.

So-So-Easy Dried Apple Snacks

I just bought this toy from Labour & Wait in Shoreditch. It has been a frequent guest on my wish lists over a year now. This weekend I was nearby and decided to seal our fate. This is the most fantastic and fun kitchen gadget, and the favorite may I add, at the moment in The Pantry. It will both cut the apple in slices and peel it at the same time, making it very easy to create wonderful dried apple snacks you can use to either top off your morning yoghurt, granola or just as a delightful little snack. I originally saw this tool in action in my all time favorite TV-show in Denmark, called Bonderøven. From that moment on I knew I had to have this in my Pantry one day. Today was that day.

One apple will make up to 10 slices. Here’s how it’s done:
Just slice up the apple as the gadget allows – or if you don’t have such an instrument, slice the apple using a sharp knife, and make sure to take out the core of the apple afterwards.
If you are using the gadget you will get a spiraled apple, so you need to make a cut through all of the layers to make the slices. Make sure to cut through the “heavy” side of the apple, meaning where the apple is thicker, as when you dry the apple on a hanging rack the heavy part of the apple will seek towards the ground (gravity, right?). If you are cutting the apple through the thin side and gravity pulls on the heavy side, the slices will fall of the rack. Make sure to dry them safely over a radiator or wood burning stove. If you feel like it drizzle some cinnamon on top of the slices before you let them hang to dry.
