Oat & Seed Cracker Bread

A couple of weeks ago I discovered baking with psyllium husks, and have been experimenting ever since. This seedy cracker bread is in the same family as the Oat & Seed Rolls I shared last week but it’s deliciously dense, more like a cracker than a bread. If you slice it up and bake the slices a second time on parchment paper, these crisp up and harden into crackers. I love them both as dense bread and as crispy crackers.

This Oat & Seed Cracker Bread Is:

  • Earthy
  • Dense
  • Dark & intense
  • Flourless
  • Vegan
  • Freezer-friendly
  • Packed with nutritious seeds
  • Easily made gluten free by using gluten-free oats
  • Great as bread or crackers
  • Great for taking on-the-go or for travel
  • Versatile, use whatever nuts and seeds you have!

Active Time: 10 minutes
Inactive Time: 40 minutes
Optional Second Bake: 20 minutes
Servings 3 Mini-Loaves

Ingredients
 

  • 1 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
  • 1/4 cup sesame seeds
  • 2 tbsp hemp seeds
  • 2 tbsp whole flax seeds
  • 1 cup rolled oats or quinoa flakes
  • 1/4 cup ground flaxseed
  • 1/4 cup chia seeds
  • 1/4 cup psyllium husk powder, click the link for my brand recommendation
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 cup tahini, or nut butter such as almond butter or peanut butter for a sweeter, nuttier taste
  • 1.5 cups water

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 350° F.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine the oats and 2 cups total of seeds (except the flax and chia, those should be mixed into the wet ingredients first to activate their binding properties).
  • In a separate bowl, combine the water, salt, ground flax, chia seeds, tahini, and psyllium husk powder. Mix well and let sit a few minutes to thicken.
  • Add the contents of both bowls together and mix well.
  • Line each mini loaf tin with a strip of parchment paper to help easily lift the loaves out. (See recipe photos)
  • Bake for 30 – 40 minutes, or until browned around the edges and it sounds hollow and makes a nice thump when tapped.
  • Allow to cool completely before slicing. This bread can be frozen in whole loaves or pre-sliced.

Optional Cracker Step

  • To make this bread into crackers, slice when cool and place the slices on a parchment lined baking sheet in a single layer. Bake them at 350°F for another 20 minutes, or until browned to your liking. These crackers can be stored at room temperature.

Notes

Substitutions:
  • The amounts of each type of seed in the recipe are a suggestion, feel free to mix and match for the seeds you have. You’ll want 2 cups total of seeds. It works best to use a mix of large and small seeds. It’s also fun to throw some nuts in there such as walnuts or hazelnuts.

    Katie, can this recipe be translated into BLE servings?

    • Hi, please see the note for BLEers at the bottom of this post. If it were me, I’d just count it like any flourless cracker or bread products.

    BLE: As I read the recipe, I would be inclined to consider this to be a nut protein, especially if you used quinoa instead of oatmeal.
