They’re absolutely the easiest crackers 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 literally under two minutes. This is the kind of thing that makes homemade snacks possible for even the busiest of people!

Homemade Flax Crackers: A Delicious and Versatile Cracker

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 salsa and, oh my! That’s some seriously addictive stuff! 

These flax crackers are also really awesome topped with homemade goat cheese (or any other cheese), and homemade lunchmeat too!

Chances are, you’ll be really surprised by how sturdy these crackers are, which makes the possibilities endless! 

If you’re wondering where in the world you would get flax seeds, don’t worry! Most health food stores have them, and of course, you can buy flax seeds on Amazon.com, or online health food stores.


Dehydrated Flax Cracker Recipe

These flax crackers are so delicious and super quick to make! You won’t want to miss this recipe.

  • Author: Elyse
  • Prep Time: 9 hours
  • Cook Time: 0 minutes
  • Total Time: 9 hours


  • 1 cup flax seeds
  • 1 cup water
  • Salt and Assorted spices (optional)


Soak flax seeds in water for 30 minutes (longer is fine too).

  1. Mix in desired spices, such as 1/2 teaspoon of garlic or onion powder.
  2. Spread evenly over a dehydrator 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.
  3. Dehydrate at 105º overnight or until dry.
  4. Break into pieces, and store in an airtight container.

For Non-Electric Dehydrators:

Not to sound overly redneck here, but it’s really easy to make (or rig up) your own air dehydrator using (clean!) window screens. Places like Walmart usually carry adjustable window screens. You can spread your flax crackers onto the screen 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 – preferably outside with a breeze.

This air-drying method works best with low-moisture items – like these crackers!
