Sallie's Famous Flackers
Updated: Aug 19, 2019
Flax Crackers. Crackers made of flax. Flackers. ;) This is a recipe I came up with after spending $6 on a box of flax crackers that had like 5 crackers in it. Ahem... I recently just bought 4 lbs of golden flax seeds from Amazon for $5 (it was only on sale for a limited time) which will make about 6 whole batches of my flackers!! Much better deal. :)
I love this basic recipe because you can adapt it for sweet or savory - or both! Just stick with plain or a basic Tamari, or make cinnamon raisin or garlic rosemary! You can make so many flavors of these the possibilities are limitless!!
3 cups golden flax seeds
3 1/2 - 4 cups of filtered water
1/2 Tbs. salt 2 Tbs. Apple Cider Vinegar
Cinnamon Raisin: 1/2 cup Organic raisins 3-4 Tbs honey Two pinches of nutmeg
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
2 Tbs. fresh rosemary (or 1 Tbs. dried rosemary)
1 tsp. garlic powder
2 Tbs. pecorino romano grated sheep cheese (optional)
3 Tbs. gluten free tamari soy-sauce
Put the flax seeds in a large bowl and add the water and ACV and salt. Mix well. The flax seeds will swell and absorb the water. Leave for about 7 hours to soak.
When the flax seeds have swelled up, mix in your choice of seasonings. The mixture should be thick and "goopy" but still spreadable. Add more or less water to get just the right consistency. Then get two large baking sheets and line with parchment paper. (You must have parchment paper or they will stick like nobody's business.) Spread out the cracker mix with a spatula onto the two sheets.
Dehydrate in the oven on the lowest temperature - about 170 F for about 12 hours or until the crackers are crispy and "crackery." Break into cracker-sized pieces and store in an airtight container. These keep well at room temperature for several months.
These crackers are super yummy served with cheeses - especially melted grass-fed Brie!!
They are also great for dipping in chicken or tuna salad and the cinnamon raisin are also particularly yummy as a snack with some sunflower seed butter and sliced banana - my personal fav! :D
Hope you enjoy!
