- Stabilizing blood sugar levels (preventing diabetes)
- Reducing muscle, bone and joint pain by lowering inflammation
- Helping balance cholesterol levels
- Improving mood and preventing depression
- Sharpening the mind and helping with concentration and learning

1 cup filtered or mineral water
1/2 cup Organic Flax seeds whole, raw
1/2 cup Organic Pumpkin seeds, raw
1/2 cup Organic Chia seeds whole, raw
1/2 cup Organic Sunflower seeds, raw
1/2 teaspoon Maldon sea salt or Himalayan Pink Salt
Preheat the oven to 350°F or 180°C
In a large bowl, mix all the ingredients together plus whatever additional seasonings you might
want and stir until combined. See some suggestions below.
Let them sit for 10 minutes to allow the flax and chia seeds to become somewhat gelatinous.
Line a baking sheet with a piece of parchment and brush with coconut oil. Spread mixture out, pressing until the sheet is less than 1/4 inch thick.
Bake for 30 minutes. Remove from oven and slice into crackers. A serrated cake knife or a pizza cutter is very handy.
Carefully turn the crackers over and put them back in the oven for an additional 20-30 minutes.
Stored in an air-tight container they will stay fresh for a week.
Note: Add your choice of seasonings such as black pepper, chili, cumin, onion or garlic powder, oregano, rosemary, or thyme.
Have fun and experiment with different combinations.
The other seeds also have great health and nutritional benefits too.
