Seaweed Crisp Bread (Knekkebrød)

crisp bread with seaweed knekkebrød
Crisp bread (knekkebrød) is a flat, dry type of cracker originally from Sweden. Traditionally shaped into large circles with a central hole that allowed them to be threaded on a long pole and hung above a fireplace to dry, the rectangular crisp bread was first manufactured in Germany in 1927, and remains popular in north-west Europe to this day. Crisp breads are a healthy and convenient lunch or snack, often served with sliced cheese, meats or vegetables. Their low water content means that they stay fresh for a very long time. Our recipe contains seeds, oats and seaweed, which means that these crisp breads will be high in fibre, heart-healthy and delicious.
This recipe makes about 4 servings.
Cooking time: 40 minutes


1 cup oatmeal
2 cups seeds (chia, poppy, pumpkin, flax and sunflower are our favourites)
Salt to taste
3 tsp Arctic Ocean Greens
1 cup water


Pre-heat your oven to 180 °C. Line two baking trays with parchment paper.
Mix the ingredients in a bowl.
Put half of the mixture over one of the trays and spread evenly and thinly. You can use the back of a spatula, or lay baking parchment or plastic wrap over the top of the mixture, pressing down and spreading to get an even thickness.
Score the unbaked crackers with a knife or pizza-cutter to make breaking it up after baking easier.
Bake in the pre-heated oven for about 30-35 minutes, keeping an eye on them and rotating the trays if needed.
Take the baking tray out of the oven and allow it to cool until it is easy to handle.
Break into pieces.
