Perhaps you’ve been thinking about adding seeds to your diet, but you’re not sure how to do it. Good news for you: They’re pretty versatile. They can even adjust to the family menu quickly because they’re not only healthy, they’re also delicious.

5-Minutes Crafts wants to teach you some simple seed recipes that you can start trying right away.

1. Chia seed pudding


  • 2 tbsp chia seeds

  • 150 ml of milk (can be replaced with nut/veg milk)

  • fresh fruit, chopped (peach, apple, orange, pear, banana, strawberries, etc.)

  • Sugar to taste

1. Pour the milk into a glass and sweeten it to taste. Add the chia seeds, stir, and let the mixture rest covered in the refrigerator for 10 to 12 hours. You can leave it overnight.

2. Remove the glass from the fridge. You’ll notice that the milk now has thickened. Lastly, cut the fruit into small pieces and place it on top of the pudding.

2. Flourless crispy seed crackers


  • ½ cup chia seeds

  • ½ cup flaxseeds

  • ½ cup pumpkin seeds

  • ½ cup sunflower seeds

  • 1 cup water

  • 2 tbsp olive oil

  • Salt to taste

  • Aromatic herbs to taste (rosemary, oregano, thyme, etc.)

1. Mix all the seeds with the olive oil, water, salt, and herbs of your choice. Let the mixture sit for 15 minutes to let the seeds hydrate. While you wait, preheat the oven to 350°F.

2. Pour the paste onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Spread with a spatula until smooth and thin.

3. Cut the dough into squares to shape the crackers before cooking. Bake them for approximately 35 minutes or until the surface is golden brown.

4. Remove the tray from the oven, let it cool, and separate the crackers. You can keep them in a jar.

3. Bread with a mix of seeds and oats

2. Combine both preparations with the help of a spoon until you get a sticky dough. If necessary, add a little more milk.

3. Place the dough into a rectangular mold, previously buttered and floured (you can also line it with parchment paper). Sprinkle the surface with more seeds.

4. Bake at a moderate temperature (375°F) for 40 to 50 minutes or until you see that the surface gets golden brown and the bread is firm. Remove from the oven and unmold while hot.

4. Cheese, rice, and sesame bites

  • 1 cup of cooked rice

  • Toasted sesame seeds to taste

1. Cut the cheese into small cubes. Take a portion of rice in your hands (about the size of a meatball). Press your finger in the center and place a piece of cheese inside. Close and shape it into a ball.

2. Microwave the bites for 10 seconds, or long enough to melt the cheese. Remove and roll the balls over the toasted sesame seeds.
