Seed crackers

Suitable from 10 months

Seed crackers

This delicious seed cracker is very popular at home. We spread on our favourite nut or seed butter and eat these for breakfast or snacks, or alongside lunch or dinner. I only started making these recently – we don’t eat bread so it was quite a treat for my children to have something to spread their almond butter onto. Try our recipe for fruity nut butter for a great topping!

These don’t last long in our house, a couple of days at most, so make a big batch if you want them to last the week. I have found my children – one using a chair as a ladder and the other standing on the counter top – breaking into cupboards in order to get their hands on them on more than one occasion.

Recipe tips
You can vary the seeds used or experiment with adding nuts or other dried fruit. Recently the black sesame seeds we have purchased have not tasted good, so we have doubled the quantity of white sesame seeds. Varying the seed quantities works well.


Speak Your Mind



  1. First of all I love love love your site.
    I’ve been using it as inspiration for my 10 month old since he started solids and your recipes have been a favourite for the whole family.

    I made these crackers and they were delicious but they also had a slightly bitter after-taste. They were slightly overdone (due to our fan oven) so maybe this was why?

    Any thoughts on this would be appreciated so I can avoid it next time.

    Congratulations again in the great site.

      Hi Joanna,

      Thank you for stopping by to post a comment. It might be because you cooked them for slightly too long; it might also be something to do with the seeds you used. Certain kinds of sesame seed can taste like that. Perhaps you could try using white sesame seeds if you used black, or skipping the black ones, or skipping sesame altogether and adding a bit of the others. Did you have your oven on the fan setting or the usual setting?
