5 Ingredient Hemp Seed Crackers [North Coast Naturals]
While talking on the phone with my Mom the other week, she quoted a phrase my brother had said to her. I couldn’t help but wonder why my brother felt so inclined to say that “I’m so glad to have a hippie as a sister“. A hippie? Moi? Now that I think about it, I guess I do have a few hippie-like tendencies. My closet consists of more than one tied-dyed piece, you will rarely see me without a mason jar or reusable container, I habitually flash the ‘peace’ sign at drivers to thank them for letting me cross the street, and I spent the better part of my weekend camping and doing yoga at The Groove Festival.
Another qualifying characteristic is the fact that I really enjoy making my own food. I’ve dabbled in bread-baking, kombucha-brewing, and more recently cracker-baking. I was jazzed by how easy and quick it is to create your own customized dipping vessels. This particular recipe has only five simple ingredients, although you could easily jazz them up with dried herbs, spices or additional seeds or nuts of your choice.

Bake for 20 minutes.
Remove tray from oven and score the crackers in any shape you like with a sharp knife.
Bake for another 10 minutes, checking often to prevent burning.
Turn off the oven, and leave tray in oven with door propped open to ensure crackers are crunchy.
Cool and enjoy with your favourite dips, nut butters, or on their own.
