Instructions
  1. Spread sprouted quinoa to dry on a pan so it is easier to handle.
  2. Preheat oven to 350C and toast the sprouted quinoa for 15-20 minutes, until golden and toasty. Check and shake the pan often! Let cool before use.
  3. Combine 1/2 cup of flaxseed with water in a large bowl, stir and set aside.
  4. Blend cooled quinoa with 1/2 cup of flax seeds in high speed blender, may have to scape down sides. I prefer a coarse, "rustic" texture!
  5. Add all ingredients into the flax & water mix, roll into a ball. I used sesame seeds and Za'atar spice, try out other fun combos!
  6. Flatten the dough out around between two sheets of parchment paper until around 1/6" thick.
  7. Score the crackers into shapes using a knife.
  8. Bake 30-35 min until the bottoms and/or edges are slightly toasted. Let cool, break and enjoy!
