Hemp seed crackers with bean-free hummus


These crispy crackers are a delicious mix of hemp, pumpkin and flax seeds. They are easy to make and usually don’t last long in my house. 

Always handy to have these versatile crackers around to enjoy with dips, nut butter, or even just on its own. I love eating them with scrambled eggs, suppose it’s the crunchy texture that is a great alternative when craving the texture of bread. Bonus fact – they are packed with healthy fats and fibre and completely grain and gluten-free. The best way to turn any snack into a nutritional feast.

I highly recommend serving them with this bean free hummus. We all love hummus, don’t we? But not everyone can stomach chickpeas. Luckily you don’t need any beans for this delicious dip that might even fool a connoisseur or crowned hummus fan.
