This recipe by Nest Wellness is so easy and fast—giving you a grain-free cracker to add to your charcuterie boards or to grab for an easy snack with your favorite dip.

Chia Crackers Recipe by Beth Bollinger⁠


  • 1/4 cup chia seeds⁠
  • 3/4 cup sunflower seeds⁠
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin seeds⁠
  • 1/4 cup sesame seeds
  • 1 tbsp psyllium husk powder
  • 3/4 cup water⁠
  • Sea salt to taste (about 1/8 tsp)
  • Optional spices: garlic powder, onion powder; herbs such as thyme, oregano, rosemary; zaatar or everything bagel spice⁠


In a food processor, combine all dry ingredients and pulse. Add water and pulse until combined and your dough forms. Let the mixture rest and thicken for 20 minutes so the chia and psyllium plump.⁠ ⁠ Roll the dough between two sheets of parchment paper, then cut the flat rolled dough into rectangles or squares. Sprinkle sea salt or spices as you desire.⁠ ⁠ Bake for 1 hour at 300º. When lightly browned and crisp, the crackers are ready. The exact time in the oven will depend on how thick or thin you roll the dough. Thicker crackers may need 10-15 minutes more.⁠ ⁠ Once cooled, carefully break the chia crackers apart. Enjoy!⁠
