I recently tested this cracker or crisp bread mix by Go Green, 300 g, and will let you know how it turned out when it came to taste, texture and ease of preparation.
Pumpkin seeds, coconut flakes and chia seeds are the main ingredients, but there are also sunflower and psyllium seeds.
You just pour the seed mix into a bowl and add water. Then set the mixture aside for a while, to soak up the water.
They recommend to add some oil, so I used olive oil, plus salt. Also to spice it up with some extra herbs, and I included rosemary and thyme to the “dough”.
Then just spread out on a tray and let dry to crispy seed crackers.
- It is great that you can buy a ready mix with all the ingredients needed to make raw crackers/crisp bread.
- There are alternatives when it comes to drying. You can bake them in a regular oven, but also in a dehydrator and then have a complete raw product.
- It is quick and easy to mix together the “dough” and then just spread out on a “tray”. The preparation description is simple and straightforward.
- Nice to find a raw product in a regular grocery store.
- I found that the taste was nothing to brag about. In spite of the herbs, the salt and with the fat from the oil as a taste enhancer, the crisp bread was rather flavorless. To me the sweetness from the cocnut flakes did not make this into a crisp bread experience. But instead a semi sweet cracker with a faint coconut flavor – nothing I especially appreciated.
- The oil and probably the fat in the coconut also made the cracker a bit rubbery in the middle without any crispness in spite of it being rather thin. Not an enjoyable texture. At the edges where the cracker mix became very thin when I spread it out, there where holes once the dough had dried. On the other hand the crisp bread there was both crisp and hard and had a much better texture. But it was too thin and brittle to be able to spread it with a topping like tahini butter or avocado spread or similar.
So what was the verdict?
Well it turned out to be a rather tasteless cracker with coconut sweetness och doughy in the middle. Unfortunately.
I think I will mix my own seeds and herbs in the future, to get a crispy tastier seed cracker. Just have to check that I have all the ingredients at home first! I can’t just take out a bag with everything included😉.
