Raw Flax Crackers

These are the easiest crackers in the world to make. They are raw and full of healthy lignans, which protect against the chemical estrogens from the environment by metabolizing them and expelling them from the body. Lignans are anti-inflammatory and powerful anti-cancer agents. A Canadian study proved the power of flax when they fed women with Breast Cancer the equivalent of 5 tablespoons of flax in muffins every day. After 30 days, the tumors were smaller and the blood markers were lower. Bon Appetit!

Soak 4 cups of organic flax seeds in 1 quart of water. The water will absorb quickly and the mixture will be very sticky. Let sit for about 4 hours.

To the flax mixture add:

1/2 cup Liquid aminos or raw, fermented tamari

1 teaspoon powdered garlic

Stir and mix thoroughly.

You can add any type of flavoring or spice if you like. The above 2 are my favorite.

Spread evenly on the dehydrator sheets and dry for 12 hours, flipping the sheets after 6 hours. Score the flax sheets at this time.

If you do not have a dehydrator, spread the mixture on a cookie sheet and bake at the lowest temperature, which is typically 175 F, until the flax is dry and cracks easily.

Enjoy with any type of dip including salsa or almond butter.

    • You are correct Laurie! …. but in this recipe, it would be difficult to use ground flax and have it come out tasty… so, use your teeth to “fresh grind” the seeds! The ones you crush well will be digested better and you may see a few whole seeds “on the back end” so to speak… and that’s ok. Happy chewing! 😉
