Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1/3 cup uncooked quinoa
  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds
  • 2 tablespoons hemp seeds
  • 1/4 teaspoon olive oil
  • 8 ounces shredded cheddar (about 1 cup)
  • 4 ounces shredded parmesan (about 1/2 cup)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Toss sunflower seeds, quinoa, sesame seeds, and hemp seeds with olive oil and spread in a single layer on a baking sheet. Toast in the oven about 15 minutes, tossing every 5 minutes, until seeds are fragrant. Remove from heat and set aside.
  3. Increase oven to 400 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  4. Layer your crackers: Drop 1 packed tablespoon of cheddar on parchment paper. Slightly shape and flatten into a 2-inch circle. Repeat until you've created 10 circles on a baking sheet, placing them 2 inches apart.
  5. Top with 1 teaspoon toasted seed mixture, 1 1/2 packed teaspoons parmesan, and 1 more teaspoon toasted seeds. Shape and press slightly into a 2-inch circle.
  6. Bake about 15-20 minutes, until the crisps are golden, but not burnt.
  7. Remove from heat and let cool on a wire rack while you prepare and bake the second half of the crisps. They will get crispier as they cool.
