We partnered with BetterBody Foods to use Organic Chia Seeds along with a variety of other seeds to make a delicious cracker full of color and texture.

1 cup old-fashioned oats
¾ cup raw pumpkin seeds (pepitas)
⅓ cup raw sunflower seeds
⅓ cup sesame seeds
3 tablespoons Better Body Foods Organic Black Chia Seeds
3 tablespoons poppy seeds
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
- Preheat oven to 375°.
- Mix oats, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, chia seeds, poppy seeds, and salt in a large bowl.
- Stir oil, maple syrup, and ¾ cup room-temperature water in a medium bowl to combine.
- Pour liquid over oat mixture and toss until mixture is completely soaked. Let sit 10 minutes; mixture will absorb water and thicken.
- Form oat mixture into a ball and transfer to a parchment-lined baking sheet.
- Press a second sheet of parchment paper directly on top and, using a rolling pin, flatten to ⅛” thick (the shape doesn’t matter). Remove top layer of parchment.
- Bake cracker until golden brown around edges, 15–20 minutes.
- Remove from oven and carefully turn out, parchment side up. Place a fresh sheet of parchment on baking sheet. Remove parchment from cracker, carefully turn cracker over, and return to baking sheet.

- Let cool on baking sheet, then break into pieces with your hands.
