Oven-Baked Chia Veggie Crackers {gluten & oil-free} sweetsimplevegan.comAfternoon snack attack? I’ve got you covered {and it’s healthy, too!}. I wanted to put together a savory snack for once, and I think I nailed this one 😉Oven-Baked Chia Veggie Crackers {gluten & oil-free} sweetsimplevegan.comNot only will this satisfy your mid day slump, but it will also bring to you a plethora of nutrients in every bite! I included a whole slew of vegetables, healthy whole food fats {hemp and chia seeds} + probiotics.

Chia seeds are one ultimate superfood. The Kunachia chia + probiotic combination takes it even further, and is a great source of protein, omega-3 fatty acid, antioxidants and fiber, PLUS it will  support your digestive health, strengthen your immune system and give you a natural energy boost you might need as an afternoon pick up. When I was reading up on Kunachia‘s website, I learned that chia seeds are nutrient powerhouses that have:

  • 14 times more magnesium than broccoli
  • 14 times more Omega-3 than salmon
  • 5 times more calcium than milk
  • 3 times more antioxidants than blueberries
  • 3 times more iron than spinach
  • Twice as much fiber as any cereal
  • Twice as much protein as any other seed
  • Twice as much potassium as bananas

So really, these crackers are freakin’ awesome for ya. They’re great on their own, but I highly suggest you take them even further and serve them with a dip, such as a salsa, guacamole, or even go all out and try my Dill & Chive Bean Dip Or Spread {Oil-Free, Low-Fat}Oven-Baked Chia Veggie Crackers {gluten & oil-free} sweetsimplevegan.comRecipe resting for these crackers was, well, an experience to say the least. I called and consulted with one of my good friends Yvonne of My Eclectic Kitchen and asked for advice on cracker baking since she makes a mean flax cracker. Like seriously, her crackers are unreal! Anyways, she told me exactly what method she uses for her crackers, so I mimicked that with my recipe, but since our ingredient list is completely different, it was a FAIL. I was getting rubbery and moist crackers, well I would say flatbreads since they were so thin, and I was about ready to give up.

What Chris and I did to improve it was spread out the batter even thinner than our first few attempts, set the oven to convection, and turn up the cooking time. After two tries with this method and a few tweaks, they were perfect! Only about 5 hours later haha but hey, all of the hard stuff was done for you guys so now all you have to do is follow my instructions below to whip out a bangin’, and easy I should add, Oven-Baked Chia Veggie Cracker. Oven-Baked Chia Veggie Crackers {gluten & oil-free} sweetsimplevegan.comMake sure you tag me on Instagram @sweetsimplevegan or twitter @sweetsimpleveg and hashtag #sweetsimplevegan if you recreate any of my recipes, I love to see your photos!

Oven-Baked Chia Veggie Crackers {gluten & oil-free}

  • Author: Jasmine Briones / Sweet Simple Vegan
  • Total Time: 4 hours 10 minutes
  • Yield: 10-12


  • 1 1/2 cup Kunachia Organic Milled Chia + Probiotics (or any milled chia seeds*)
  • 1/2 cup Kunachia chia seeds (soaked in 3 cups water for 23 hours)
  • 1 cup sun dried tomatoes (soaked in 1 cup water for 23 hours and drained)
  • 2 cups baby spinach & kale mix
  • 2 garlic cloves or 2 tsp granulated garlic
  • 1/2 cup chopped carrots
  • 1/3 cup red bell pepper
  • 1/4 cup hemp seeds
  • 1/4 red onion
  • 2 medjool dates, pitted
  • 3 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1/4 tsp paprika
  • 1/8 tsp cumin
  • Salt & pepper to taste


  1. Pre-soak your chia seeds and sun-dried tomatoes for at least 3 hours. Drain any excess water from the tomatoes.
  2. Preheat oven to 300F convection*.
  3. Place the chia seeds and hemp seeds in a large bowl.
  4. Blend the remaining ingredients (everything but the chia and hemp seeds) in a high speed blender, and blend until combined and fairly smooth. Then add into the large bowl and mix.
  5. Spread onto a silicon baking mat (or parchment paper*) 1/8″ thick (or as thin as you can get them without holes). Carefully score with a sharp knife into 1 1/2″ squares. Try not dragging the knife down but cutting into them in sections.
  6. Bake for 30 minutes, or until the top is sold and dry, then remove from oven and cool for 10 minutes. Using a thin edged [metal] spatula, flip the crackers, trying to avoid squishing them.
  7. Bake for another 20-30 minutes, or until crispy.


Milled chia seeds are just any chia seeds that have been ground to a uniform powder.

I have only tried this recipe on convection, so results may vary with a standard oven.

I used a silicon baking mat with this recipe, and that is what I suggest, but parchment may work. I have not yet tried this, so let me know if you do!

Oil-free Heart Shaped Falafel w/ a probiotic chia tahini dressing, romaine, tomatoes, cucumber, red onion, mixed greens, crushed almonds, mixed sprouts and parsley. I am in love with this dressing, and it’s easy to make.

Dressing recipe: 1/3 cup water, 1/4 cup tahini, juice of 1 small lemon, 1/2 tbsp Kunachia chia + probiotics shot (it comes milled so it blends easily), 1/4 tsp dried garlic, 1/4 tsp dried dill, salt & black pepper to taste. Blend until smooth. It thickens overtime so just add more lemon and water.
