FANTASTIC FLAX CRACKERS
I love these because they are SUPER easy to make with just a few ingredients, but more importantly they are something healthy that satisfies those crunchy crisp and biscuit cravings! Plus made using flax seeds these beauties are super high in pant-based omega 3!
What will you dip them into?
Salsa? Hummus? Guac? Soup? So many possibilities!
Lets dive in!
Soak time: 12 hours
Prep time: 10 mins
Cook time: 50-60 mins
1 cup whole flax seeds
1/2 cup water
1 tsp dried rosemary
1/2 tsp garlic powder (smoked garlic is fantastic for this!)
1/2 tsp onion powder (optional)
tiny pinch of salt (optional)
Feel free to change up the flavours for whatever you like. Caraway seeds or chilli flakes might be good!
Add the flax seeds, water and seasonings into a mixing bowl. Mix until the herbs are evenly distributed, then cover and place in the fridge for 12 hours.
After soaking, remove the mixture from the fridge and give it a good stir. The herbs tend to rise to the top, so it’s a good idea to stir them back in.
Take a baking tray and line with parchment paper. Place the flax seed mixture on this, then place another piece of parchment paper on top and roll out with a rolling pin or spread using the back of a spoon. Make them as thin as you'd like. The thinner you get them the crispier they will be.
Bake on a low temp at 130°C fan (140°C) for 50-60 minutes with the parchment paper on - but keep an eye on it, checking half way through cooking time is a good idea.
Be aware that the edges might go crispy well before the middle does. If this does happen, turn down the temp of the oven slightly, or if you can, break off the crispy edge bits and remove from the (so they don’t burn) and put the gooey middle part back into the oven and keep checking on them until they’re done - make sure they’re crispy and all moisture is gone.
After removing from the oven allow to cool for 10 minutes before breaking into pieces.
If you discover a fantastic dip combo for these let me know!! (I’ll be in the kitchen experimenting!)
