Brown Rice Crackers – Out Of This World!

It was my lovely friend Alison who introduced me to this brown rice cracker recipe that she had found online at Better Health Clinics. While I was making the recipe, I was sceptical about the success of it but my goodness how wrong could I be?! These brown rice crackers are just out of this world and perfect for kids as a snack. I love them with mashed avocado, nut butter and alfalfa or humous – YUM!

Ingredients 

160g Brown rice – well cooked

40g Flax seeds soaked in 50 ml water for 15 mins

2 tbs Sesame seeds

1 tbs Tamari or soy sauce

1 tbs Olive oil

Makes 2 trays

Method:

  • Preheat your oven to 160˚C
  • Blitz all the ingredients together until sticky and fully mixed together – including the 50ml of water you soaked your seeds in. You will wonder what on earth this mixture is! If it’s not sticky, add a splash more water
  • Using a palette knife or similar spread a very fine layer of mixture on a piece of baking paper or place mixture between 2 sheets of baking paper and roll until very thin then remove top baking paper sheet
  • Using a knife make score lines for the size of the cracker you want
  • Place baking paper on a baking tray and cook for approx. 30 mins or until completely dry
  • Slice while hot as they crisp up fast
  • Store in an air tight tin for 4 days – if they last that long!

Tip: When you next cook brown rice, cook a bit extra and make these crackers with your left overs

Options: Try adding different seeds, herbs or spices

How kids can help:

  • Tipping ingredients into the blitzer
  • Spreading the rice mixture around the baking paper
  • Making the cracker lines with a (blunt) knife
