►Makes 100 Crackers
3 tablespoons (36 g) white chia seeds
⅓ cup (80 ml) water, more if needed
½ cup (120 g) packed cooked and cooled amaranth (See headnote.)
½ cup plus 2 tablespoons (75 g) whole wheat pastry flour, plus extra for rolling
3 tablespoons (30 g) shelled hemp seeds
3 tablespoons (23 g) golden roasted flaxseeds
2 tablespoons (15 g) almond meal 1½ teaspoons nutritional yeast Generous ½ teaspoon fine sea salt 2 tablespoons (30 ml) olive oil
Combine the chia seeds with the water in a small bowl. Let stand 2 minutes to thicken.
Place the amaranth, flour, hemp seeds, flaxseeds, almond meal, nutritional yeast, and salt in the bowl of a stand mixer. Add the thickened chia mixture and oil on top. Use a stand mixer fitted with a flat blade attachment to thoroughly combine. If the dough is crumbly or dry, add extra water, a few drops at a time. The dough should come together as a not-too-sticky ball.
Shape the dough into a 5-inch (13 cm) disc; tightly wrap the dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 2 hours or overnight.
Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C, or gas mark 6). Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper. Divide the dough into 4 portions.
Place a quarter of the dough on a lightly floured piece of parchment paper, lightly dust the top of the dough with flour, and roll out extremely thinly, about 1⁄16 inch (1.6 mm). Using a 2-inch (5 cm) round cutter, cut the dough into crackers and transfer to the prepared sheets. Roll out the dough scraps until you run out and repeat with the other 3 quarters of dough. You can also wrap the remaining dough tightly and place it back in the refrigerator for later use for up to 4 days.
Bake for 8 minutes and check for doneness: The crackers should be light golden brown all over. Some crackers are likely to bake faster than others; just remove those that are ready and transfer them onto a wire rack. Bake the rest until ready, in 1-minute increments, until light golden brown all over. Let cool on a wire rack before storing in an airtight container at room temperature. Leftovers should be enjoyed within 2 days.
