Homemade Flax Crackers & Healthy Hummus

By Stuart Cooke

Stu: Crackers and hummus make an awesome snack but it’s easy to run into trouble with the supermarket range. Both of these options usually contain processed damaging seed oils and hidden preservatives so thanks again to Keira Rumble for offering a truly healthy alternative.

Over to Keira…

Keira: I am a massive fan of mid-afternoon snack time. While I try to mix up my choices, sometimes I just want something easy and delicious, without having to go to the shops and buy pre-packaged overpriced ‘health’ snacks.

flaxseed oil free crackersCracker Ingredients:

  • ½ cup sunflower seeds
  • ½ cup pepitas
  • ½ cup sesame seeds
  • ½ cup chia seeds
  • 2 tablespoons Greens Plus
  • 1 tablespoon smoked paprika
  • 1 tablespoon nigella seeds
  • 1 tablespoon LSA
  • 1 tablespoon linseed
  • 1 scoop 180 Natural Protein Superfood (coconut)
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil

Method:

Combine all dry ingredients into a bowl. Pour in 1 cup of water and mix well, drizzle in the coconut oil. Preheat oven to 180 degrees. Line a baking tray with baking paper. Spread the mixture evenly across.

Bake for 30 minutes (be careful that it doesn’t burn). Remove from oven, carefully cut into desired shape, flip and re-bake for another 30 minutes, again make sure it doesn’t burn! Once cooked, let them cool in the tray for 10 minutes, then turn out onto baking wire and let them cool completely.

healthy hummus recipeHummus Ingredients:

  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 1 chilli
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil
  • 1 can organic chickpeas
  • 2 lemons (juice of 2, rind of 1)
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • 2 tablespoons flaxseed oil
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • Pinch of pepper

Method:

Pre-heat oven to 180 degrees. Roast the garlic cloves (whole and unpeeled) with 1-2 tablespoon of coconut oil and 1 chilli halved in the oven for 15-20 minutes. Once cooked, squeeze the garlic out of the skin into a food processor.

Combine garlic with the juice of 2 lemons, rind of 1 lemon, salt, chickpeas and water and blitz for 45 seconds. Slowly add the flaxseed oil and coconut oil until your desired consistency. If you want to add in tahini, go for it – I am not really a fan, so I didn’t add it. For a more creamier texture you can add in natural greek yoghurt.
