Make homemade Flax and Sesame Crisps with only 4 ingredients. These crisp crackers are a simple take-anywhere snack and have the most unbelievable taste for how healthy they are. If you're impatient like me, you’ll appreciate the straightforward instructions and quick baking time! Store-bought crisps are always delicious - but there is no denying that they will never be as clean and simple as homemade crisps. Easy to pronounce ingredients and zero added preservatives, the dough comes together in minutes, with very little chilling time, cutting it in shapes you like, and hardly any baking time. It's just that easy.

So, let’s get going!

What ingredients do you need?

As always, all the ingredients used are simple, common and easy to pronounce:

  • Flax Seeds (you can use whole flax seeds or even flax seed powder if you feel too lazy to grind them)

  • White Sesame Seeds (preferably raw sesame seeds and not roasted ones)

  • Oil (any oil of your choice: like peanut oil, sesame oil, or even regular vegetable oil)

  • Pizza seasoning (or any flavouring or seasoning of your choice: BBQ, peri-peri etc..)

  • Water (just plain simple water)

To get started put the sesame seeds and flax seeds in a dry grinder. Then grind it into a fine powder.

Then, transfer that powder into a bowl. Add the pizza seasoning and mix it. Then add the oil to it. Mix it using your hands until it starts to look like wet sand.

Slowly start adding water to it until it comes together like a dough.

Once the dough is ready, take two pieces of parchment paper and lightly apply some oil on them. Put half of the dough between the two sheets of parchment. Roll it until it is 1/3 cm. Cut it into 2 cm X 2 cm squares. Refrigerate them for 15 minutes. Repeat the process with the rest of the dough.

While the dough chills, line a flat baking tray with parchment paper and keep aside.


Now, gently lift all the squares of dough and place them about a centimeter apart. Try and fit in as many pieces as you can.

Preheat your oven at 180ºC. Bake the Flax and Sesame Crisps for 20 minutes. Then lower the temperature to 160ºC and bake for another 10 minutes until the squares start to brown slightly. Rotate the tray halfway through the process to ensure an even bake.

Then, take out the crisps from the oven and let them cool properly. Ensure you let them cool down properly before serving or else they will taste more chewy than crisp.


I hope you love this recipe as much as I do. Especially given that it is the perfect combination of health and taste that one looks for in an ideal snack.


Happy Baking!
