Mix the 1 cup chia, 5 cups water (yes that’s right, 5 cups – chia holds up to 10 times it’s own weight in water) and sea salt to taste together in a large bowl. (If you plan to add any optional savory or sweet additions mix them in at step 1 as well.)
Allow to sit for 10 to 15 minutes until a thick gel has formed
Spread onto teflex sheets of your dehydrator as thick or thinly as you choose. Don’t be worried about going too thin- the crisps hold together beautifully.
Optional: score the crackers or crips with a knife so that they break apart uniformly- or just leave as one mass and break apart when finished for an artisinal look which is just as yummy and easier too!
Dehydrate on 115 for several hours (amount of time depends on the humidity of the season, where you live etc. so check on them periodically to determine when the top is dry) then flip to dry the other side (just place another sheet on top and flip, then peel off the top layer of teflex)
