Raw Onion Energy Crackers

Raw seed crackers are awesome! They are packed with nutrients. Nothing better than raw seed crackers topped with organic raw cheese! You can change up the seasonings to your taste. Play with the recipe and you can have a whole variety of different flavors. The onion in this is awesome. I love dehydrated onion!

Chia is soooo good for you. It is an energy food! It aids in weight-loss/management. It has been a staple crop since Ancient Times. One ounce only has 137 calories, 4.4 grams of protein, Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids, 177 mg Calcium, 265 mg phosphorus, 44.8 mg potassium, 10.6 g dietary fiber. Put.it.in.everything.

Can be multiplied very well. This makes one dehydrator sheet full.

Ingredients:
1/2 cup organic raw pumpkin seeds
1/2 cup organic raw sunflower seeds
1/2 cup organic chia seeds
1/2 cup organic sesame seeds
1 cup water
2 cloves organic garlic, crushed
1 organic onion, diced
1/2-1 ts real salt, or to taste
1/4-1/2 ts organic garlic pepper
A couple shakes kelp flakes

Combine water, garlic, and onion, stir. Let it soak while gathering the other ingredients.  Combine seeds and seasonings well. Pour in water mixture and mix well. Spread onto one dehydrator sheet, 1/4-1/2 inch thick. I use a piece of parchment paper on a regular dehydrator sheet because I don't have the solid sheets and it works well. Dehydrate at 110-115 degrees (you can dehydrate at a higher temp for less time but will no longer be "raw") for a couple hours. Once it's pretty firm but still pliable, pull out to slice. Take a pizza cutter and make slices to the desired size, flip (I slice mine, carefully, on the parchment on the dehydrator sheet, place another dehydrator sheet and holder on top, press the two together and flip. If your parchment paper won't easily peal off, dehydrate for another hour or so.) After flipped, place back in dehydrator for another few hours. Once hard and crispy, they are done! Enjoy topped with some yummy raw cheese!

You could bake these, you lose some nutrients that way, but it would still be better than buying crackers. I'd say bake for 30 min or so before flipping. Then bake another 30+ minutes until desired consistency.
