Recipe: Fennel Seed Crackers

These crackers are great to snack on and even better served with a dessert or vegan cheese.

These fennel seed crackers are a delicious snack and a great homemade alternative to store bought crispbread and crackers. Pair them with a vegan cheese, dessert (like the Caramelised Whisky Pears) or serve as a mid afternoon snack with a cup of tea.

Not a fan of fennel seeds? No problem. You can leave them out or substitute with cracked black pepper, nigella seeds or poppy seeds. Brush each cracker with olive oil and sprinkle with some chopped hazelnuts, sea salt flakes, or brown sugar if you like it sweet, before placing them in the oven.

Cool on a rack and enjoy. These also store really well in airtight containers, but chances are they won't last long in there (mine didn't).
