½ cup raw organic sunflower seeds
½ cup raw organic sesame seeds
¼ cup organic flaxseeds
1 tablespoon arrowroot powder

INGREDIENTS FOR AVOCADO TOPPING: (SERVES 2)
1 large organic cucumber
½ teaspoon finely grated organic lemon
10 fresh mint leaves, torn up small pieces
turmeric and pepper to taste
extra-virgin olive oil and lemon juice to taste
PREP FOR SEED CRACKER:
Preheat the oven to 320°F.
In a large bowl, mix all the cracker ingredients together. Allow this mixture to sit for 20 minutes to firm up.
Line a large piece of parchment paper on a baking sheet. Spread out your mixture evenly over the parchment paper.
Cover the mixture with another piece of parchment paper and use a rolling pin to flatten out evenly. Make sure the sheet is less than ¼ inches think. Carefully remove the top parchment paper.
Bake for 45 minutes. Let cool and then break the cracker into large pieces. Or you can use a pizza cutter to cut into large squares. These crackers will last up to a week in an airtight container.
PREP FOR AVOCADO TOPPING:
While the crackers are baking, use a peeler to shave the large cucumber into thin strips.
In a medium bowl, place the shaved cucumber and toss with the lemon zest, torn mint leaves, and season with turmeric, pepper, lemon juice, and olive oil (to taste).
Once the cracker is cooled and cut, slice the avocado and place it evenly over two crackers.
Top the crackers with your shaved cucumber garnishes. Powerhouse lunch!
