The Best Gluten Free Seeded Crackers

This recipe has been inspired by some very delicious crackers I tried when I was in India – In fact the cookbook I styled for will contain a few variatons of these amazing seeded crackers. As soon as I tried them I knew I had to make my own version, and of course that’s the beauty of a recipe like this, once you’ve got the base recipe down you can mix it up with different flours, seeds, spices etc etc

Today I used a combination of buckwheat and gram flour for added texture and flavour but you can use 100% buckwheat flour if you’d prefer and rice flour also works really well. I love adding turmeric so that the crackers become a gorgeous orange colour (and you get lots of anti oxidants of course). I combined a mix of seeds; pumpkin, sunflower, sesame & poppy seeds with lovely Indian spices (but you can omit these are use your favourites).

These tasty little crackers are completely wheat and gluten free and also packed with protein from all those lovely seeds, they are seriously good dipped into hummus, pesto or served with curries on the side for crunch.

They really benefit from a good tsp of sea salt to enhance the flavour and this can be added into the mix and/ sprinkled on top.
