Two weeks ago, my beloved, 4-year old oven suddenly quited on me. This has totally upset my Chinese New Year (CNY) baking schedule. I have bought a new oven subsequently but I am still adapting myself to its new features, baking time and temperature.
Seaweed crackers are one snack that I’m very tempted to make for this CNY. However, all of the online seaweed crackers recipes are deep-fried which I’m not so keen to try. Eventually, I had decided to use a baked version from Anja’s Food 4 Thought as a guide and come out with this creation of mine. It was a great success! They are so crispy, crunchy, tasty and not to mention healthy too!! These light, savoury crackers yield a delightful seaweed taste and fragrant sesame flavour. They are so addictive that my family and my son’s classmates can’t have enough of them.
These crackers contain no egg, sugar, butter, and are made from 100% gluten free flour (a mix of rice flour and almond flour). You can nibble them without much guilt as it has far less calories and fat than those commercial festive snacks. You can also be rest assured that it has no preservatives, food colouring and additives.
These crackers are super easy and quick to bake. You don’t need any special baking equipment or baking skill. All you have to do is to blend everything together, roll the cut pieces out as thin and even as possible, and bake till perfection. It is a very versatile recipe. You are free to create any shape you fancy. This is surely a great baking project that your kids will enjoy and have great fun. As it’s fun to bake, it’s also fun to eat. Other than having them just for snack, you can also crush them into small pieces and sprinkle over ice-cream or yogurt as topping. Chinese New Year is just one week away. If you have not enough time to bake, why not give this simple and quick recipe a go?
Wishing everyone a joyful Year of Horse blessed with prosperity and good health!
