Easy Homemade Flax Crackers

This is hands down the easiest recipe I know! These crackers are super crispy, tasty, and nutritious. It's the perfect addition to any snack platter (with hummus and guacamole, yum!). Crumbled, the crackers work really well as healthy croutons in salads too. 

The basic recipe for Flax Crackers is just flax seeds and water. Flax seeds are full of fiber and omega-3. Fiber helps with a proper digestion and omega-3 can help prevent cardiovascular disease, but that is kind of a complicated story. In the end, these crispy crackers just taste really good. Go try and make them! 

- 2 cups of flax meal
- 1/2 cup of water

For a cheesy version add:
- 1 tbsp of nutritional yeast (for a cheesy flavour)
- 1 tsp of rosemary
- 1 tsp of thyme
- pinch of salt

For a spicy version add:
- 1 tsp of garlic powder
- 1 tsp of chili flakes
- ½ tsp of cayenne pepper
- pinch of salt

Start by preheating your oven to 200ºC. Then make your own flax meal by blending 2 cups of whole flax seeds in your food processor until a flower forms. Add water, and all the herbs and/or spices that go with the version you like. Spread the mixture thinly on parchment paper and use a knife to already form them into crackers. Place the mixture in the preheated oven for 25 minutes. After you have taken the crackers out of the oven and they have cooled down slightly (the crackers get more crispy when they cool down) they are ready for that yummy snack platter. Enjoy!
