Bird Seed Crackers

This recipe comes to you from Quite Good Food ‘ homemade five seed crackers’ via my friend Sally Rose who was kind enough to gift me the recipe after I scoffed half a tray.


1 cup sunflower seeds

3/4 cup pumpkin seeds

1/2 cup chia seeds

1/2 cup sesame seeds ( a mix of black & white if possible)

1/4 cup linseed (flaxseed)

1 1/4 cups water

1 teas salt

1 Tbs dried herbs (I used oregano but thyme is nice)

1 teas chilli flakes (optional)


Preheat oven to 170C

Mix all ingredients together and leave for 10 -15 minutes so water will absorb the chia seeds.  Mix well and pour the mixture in 2 trays or as I did a large one lined with baking paper.  Spread thinly but evenly.

Bake for one hour but switch tin around so it cooks evenally until crisp and golden brown.  If not crisp give them another 5 or so minutes.  All ovens are different!

Remove from oven, cool and break up into shards and keep in an airtight container.

    Thanks! I’ll have to make these since I have all the ingredients. An Australian cup is a little bigger than a US cup, I think. For you, 1 cup is also 250 ml?


  2. Yes Stacy. Thought of you when I received the Russian cookbook ‘ Kachka’ in the post today. Looks very entertaining! Thank you for that recommendation 🐷
