Raw Flax Seed Crackers Recipe

Dehydrated flax seed crackers are a healthy raw food snack. I dipped mine in raw hummus.

Raw flax seed crackers are a popular snack for those on raw food diet. Even if you're just looking to include more flax seed in your diet or more raw foods, try this dehydrated flaxseed cracker recipe for a satisfying crunch. Flaxseed crackers are great with raw salsa, raw guacamole or raw hummus (pictured). I like to add garlic salt to my flax crackers, but this may not be suitable for those on a 100% raw food diet.

If you like these raw flax crackers, you might also want to try making these similar raw food corn chips.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups whole flaxseeds
  • approx 2 cups water
  • 1/4 cup tamari, Braggs Liquid Aminos or nama shoyu raw soy sauce
  • sea salt to taste
  • 1 tbsp fresh minced herbs (optional)

Preparation:

In a medium sized bowl, cover the flax seed crackers with water and allow to soak for at least 1 1/2 hours. The water will turn to a gelatinous goo. Check the mixture, and add more water if needed. You want the mixture to be gooey, but not runny, and not too thick.

Stir in the tamari, Liquid Aminos or nama shoyu sauce, sea salt and fresh herbs. You can also get creative and add some extra flavors - a quirt of lime juice, minced ginger, chili powder or cayenne pepper - depending on your tastes.

Spread the mixture about 1/8 inch thick on your dehydrator's paraflexx or teflex sheets.

Set your dehydrator to about 110 degrees, and dehydrate for 4-6 hours. Turn the mixture over, and dehydrate another 3 - 4 hours. If you like a crispy and crunchy cracker, dehydrate a bit longer. I like my flaxseed crackers a bit chewier, so I dehydrate them a bit less. Break or slice your crackers into pieces when finished dehydrating.

Raw flaxseed crackers are an excellent snack on their own, or served with a raw salsa, guacamole, raw hummus or another raw food dip.

These are great, Guest Flying Platters

I am gluten free and always looking for alternatives for bread and crackers. These were very good. I used golden flaxseed. Mine took upward of 12 hours in the dehydrator at 115 degrees for very crispy. Beware not to eat too many of the flax crackers at one time due to the ""cleansing"" effects of flax (if you know what I mean).
