There are so many things I could say about this dehydrated flax cracker recipe. Who doesn’t love a good gluten-free recipe?
They’re absolutley the easiest cracker you’ll ever make, gluten-free or otherwise! No heating up the oven, mixing, rolling, cutting, poking with a fork… none of that. The prep time for making flax crackers is litteraly under two minutes. This is the kind of thing that makes homemade snacks possible for even the busiest of people!
I was first introduced to flax crackers by a friend who eats a 100% raw diet. Honestly, up until that point, I hadn’t been terribly impressed by her raw food versions of… well, food. But that day, she served up some flax crackers and fresh peach slasa and, oh my! That’s some seriously addictive stuff!
Chances are, you’ll be really surprised by how sturdy these crackers are, which makes the possibilities endless!Print
Dehydrated Flax Cracker Recipe
- 1 cup flax seeds
- 1 cup water
- Salt and Assorted spices (optional)
Soak flax seeds in water for 30 minutes (longer is fine too).
- Mix in desired spices such as 1/2 teaspoon of garlic or onion powder.
- Spread evenly over a dhydrator rack with a fine mesh insert (if you have one). One cup of seeds should be just right for one rack. You want about an 1/8 inch layer.
- Dehydrate at 105º overnight or until dry.
- Break into pieces, and store in an airtight container.
For Non-Electric dehydrators.
No to sound overly redneck here, but it’s really easy to make (or rig up) your own air dehydrator using (clean!) window screans. Places like Walmart usually carry adjustable window screens. You can spread your flax crackers onto the screan, and cover them either with another screen, or something like Butter Muslin.
Set your makeshift dehydrator somewhere where it’s warm, dry, and with good air circulation – preferable outside with a breeze.
This air drying method works best with low moisture items – like these crackers!
