Preheat oven to 350°C/ gas mark 4. Spread the nuts onto a baking sheet and toast in the oven for 7-10 minutes, just until the nuts begin to turn golden brown.
In a heavy bottomed saucepan, combine the sugar, water and butter over a low heat. Stir until butter is melted and sugar is dissolved. Once mixture begins to boil, insert a sugar thermometer and cook to 300 degrees F, while stirring occasionally.
As soon as the temperature reaches 300 degrees, immediately stir in the baking soda, which will cause the mixture to foam. Moving quickly, stir in the nuts, cranberries and Flax + Chia and pour onto a non stick baking tray lined with greaseproof paper. Use the back of a spoon to spread out the mixture as thinly as you can (mixture will be thick). Sprinkle generously with sea salt.
Let sit for 30 minutes until cool and then break into small chunks.
