In a large bowl combine flaxseeds, chia, psyllium, sunflower, pumpkin, sesame, poppy seeds, fennel, cumin seeds and salt. Combine well. Add water to the bowl and mix well. Allow the mixture to sit for 10 – 12 minutes until all of the water has been absorbed and the mixture comes together.

Bake for 25 – 30 minutes until lightly brown on top. Remove tray from oven and let cool slightly, break or cut into individual crackers.

To make the green olive hummus, combine all ingredients and blend until mixed well.

Spoon into a serving bowl and top with fresh parsley, pine nuts and green olives.
