  • 1 cup 100g Rye flour
  • 1 cup 100g Oats (I used Porridge Oats)
  • cup 50g Flaxseeds
  • cup 50g Sesame seeds
  • cup 50g Pumpkin seeds
  • 2 teaspoons Fennel seeds cracked (optional)
  • 1 teasponn Cumin seeds optional
  • ¾ teaspoon Salt (Would add a bit more next time)
  • ¼ cup 50 ml Olive oil
  • cup 150 ml hot water


  • Preheat the oven to 180°C.   
  • Add all the dry ingredients to a large bowl.
    1 cup 100g Rye flour, 1 cup 100g Oats, ⅓ cup 50g Flaxseeds, ⅓ cup 50g Sesame seeds, ⅓ cup 50g Pumpkin seeds, 2 teaspoons Fennel seeds, 1 teasponn Cumin seeds, ¾ teaspoon Salt
    Ingredients used in Crispbread
  • Stir well with a rubber spatula, then add in the oil and water. 
    ¼ cup 50 ml Olive oil, ⅔ cup 150 ml hot water
  • Stir well and use your hands to form a compact ball.
    Dough for crispbread
  • Place a sheet of parchment paper onto a large surface and place the dough on top. (If required you can divide the dough into two).
  • Cover with another sheet of parchment paper, and flatten the dough into a large and thin rectangle using a rolling pin. Try to make it as thin as possible, but careful not to tear it apart.
  • Remove the parchment paper on top and transfer carefully the flattened bread along with the parchment paper underneath into the baking tray. 
  • You can lightly score into pieces with a sharp knife. (I did not, but it is advisable to do if you need a clean and uniform pieces afterwards, as it becomes difficult to cut into pieces once baked)
    Crispbread ready to be baked
  • One can sprinkle with some additional flaky salt over it. (I skipped it).
  • Place the trays in the oven and bake for 15 minutes. Rotate the tray after 15 minutes or so, if your oven has a tendency to be more hot on the back or front side.
  • Bake it for another 10 to 15 more minutes, until golden. Be careful we do not want it to be burned.
    Baked Crispbread
  • Let it cool on the baking tray itself. Break into pieces, or crack along the scored lines with a knife.
  • Store in a airtight container for up to two weeks.


  • One can substitute the Oats with All purpose flour.
