These sesame hemp triangles are a very tasty and healthy snack. They are easy and fast to make. The bonus is they contain 2 highly nutritionally dense foods – hemp and chia.
Hemp seeds are extremely nutritious. They are a fantastic plant form of protein as well as supplying omega 3, vitamin E and are one of the richest sources of essential fatty acids in the plant kingdom.
Chia seeds are a complete protein. They are high in antioxidants, potassium, boron, iron, essential fatty acids, fibre and so much more. They help increase and sustain energy. They are a great energy food for athletes.
Sesame Hemp Crackers
- ½ C sesame Seeds
- ½ C hemp hearts or seeds
- 4 tbsp chia gel
- Lemon zest – about 3 tbsp
- ½ lemon juiced
- 1-2 Tbsp honey or agave
Salt to taste
Soak sesame seeds for at least 2 hours. Put into wire strainer and rinse and drain well. You do not have to soak hemp seeds.
To make chia gel, soak 1 Tbsp of chia seeds in 6 Tbsp of water. Stir and wait for it to come into a thick gel (about 30 min). Not sure how much this will make, I am just guessing that it will make 4 or more Tbsp of chia gel.
Put all ingredients into a bowl and stir to combine and spread on teflex sheets. Score into triangles. Dehydrate at 105 degrees for about 6 hours or until it peels easily away from teflex sheets. Flip onto mesh dehydrator sheets and dehydrate for another 4 hours – or how ever long it takes to become solid.
This is a smaller recipe. Try it out and see if you like it. You may want to adjust ingredients. Add orange and or lime zest for a change. Add some black sesame seeds and even some whole flax or added color.
