Better than Boxed Crackers

These crackers are awesome! They are really easy to make, I was surprised how great they turned out.  They are also vegan, gluten free and high in protein.  Each cracker (for a recipe of 30) has 3.5 g of protein.

  • 3/4 cup shredded carrot
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 3 tbsp flax seed
  • 1/2 cup plain vegan protein powder
  • 1 tbsp sesame seed
  • 2 tbsp hemp seeds
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp oil

Directions:

Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Place grated carrots onto a baking tray lined with parchment.  Bake in the oven and bake for 20 to 30 minutes (flipping a few times), or until a bit dry. Add water and flax seed into a bowl, mix well. Set aside. 

In a larger bowl, mix together protein powder, sesame seeds, hemp hearts, chia seeds and salt. Add in flax egg, oil and carrot, mixing together into a dough ball. Place dough into a 8x11 pan lined with parchment and greased.  Use your hands to press down the dough into the pan, trying to reach close to the edges. Score the top with a sharp knife into the desired size of crackers you want.

Bake for 45 minutes to 1 hr, then flip and bake for 10 to 15 minutes. Using a knife, break apart your crackers into squares and store in an airtight container.
