Easy Flax Crackers

By January 18, 2016 May 15th, 2018 No Comments

Flax crackers are super yummy and pretty healthy too. I love to make these easy flax crackers because they’re easy to make and give my body a lot of healthy fiber. They also act as a great dipping-agent into dips like hummus or guacamole as an alternative (and a healthier one!) to other types of crackers.

These flax crackers can also be shaped to fit your favorite flavor profile by adding different herbs and spices – because on their own they’re a little bland (after all, flax doesn’t have an overwhelming flavor!).

I hope you love these crackers as much as I do!

Easy Flax Crackers

Prep time: 5 minutes

Total time: 30 minutes

Makes: About 20 crackers (cut 2 inches by 2 inches)

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup ground flaxmeal
  • 2 tbsp hulled sesame seeds
  • 2 tbsp hemp seeds
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds
  • Dash salt and pepper
  • (optional): dash garlic powder, turmeric, cayenne, oregano, dried basil, any others
  • 1/2 cup water

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Combine all dry ingredients in a medium mixing bowl.
  3. Add water and mix until well blended- the consistency should be a paste (but not overly wet or sticky).
  4. Spread mixture onto the baking sheet (I like to use a piece of plastic cling wrap to help me spread the mixture with my hands without sticking to it!)- it should be about 1/4 inch thick or less.
  5. Bake for about 20-25 minutes or until the edges are lightly browned and crispy (and make sure the middle isn’t doughy!).
  6. Remove from oven and allow to cool for about 10 minutes before cutting.
  7. Serve either by themselves or with your favorite dip- like hummus!
