Sundried Seaweed Seeded Crackers

By Hayley Tia

Harvested from the sea, baked in the sun and enjoyed in the cockpit - these seaweed seeded crackers are the perfect plastic-free alternative to a store-bought option that are also efficient on resources that you don't even need an oven!

Seeded Seaweed crackers platter


1/3 cup flaxseeds

1/3 cup chia seeds

1/3 cup pumpkin seeds

1/3 cup sunflower seeds

2 tablespoons of hemp seeds

1 tablespoon Nigella seeds

1 teaspoon sea salt

1 teaspoon of cracked black pepper

1 teaspoon of dried seaweed

1 teaspoon of nutritional yeast

1 cup of water


  1. Combine all of the dry ingredients in a small mixing bowl, then remove approximately half of the mixture and blitz in a small benchtop blender until finely ground.

  2. Return the fine mixture to the remaining seeds and add the water, mixing with a spoon until well combined. Let sit for 10 minutes.

  3. Transfer the mixture to a square of baking paper resting on a baking tray or plate.

  4. Using a spatula spread the mixture out until it is about 3mm thick then use a knife to gently score the mixture into bite-sized pieces.

  5. Place your baking tray in the full sun until the crackers become crispy. Depending on the intensity of the sun and the humidity this should take approximately 4 hours at 28C/82F.

  6. Serve immediately with dips and nibbles at sundowners or store for up to two weeks in an airtight container.

Makes approximately 24 crackers

Not only are these crackers low carb, high in healthy fats and a great source of fiber, they are also allergy-friendly- GF, dairy-free and vegan.

If you’re not quite ready for seaweed why not substitute this for Italian herbs or get creative with the flavors. For something different try;

  • Spicy Mexican style with smokey paprika, cumin and chilli.

  • Garlic and cheese, using powdered garlic and a heaped tablespoon of nutritional yeast.

  • Light and tangy using sumac, mixed herbs and plenty of sea salt.

  • Sweet and fruity with walnut and fig.

The combinations really are endless! We always love hearing from you guys so,
whether you sink or swim with your endeavors in the galley we want to hear it.
