I love these flax crackers. I’m not sure they are for everyone, but if you are on a low carb diet and are craving crackers, this might do the trick. Even my discerning hubby loves them! They are very filling due to the fiber from the flaxseeds so you don’t have to eat too many. So if you are looking to add more fiber to your diet and you are doing low carb too, this is the cracker for you.
Flaxseed Crackers (yields 92 crackers)
½ cup ground flaxseed
½ cup ground almonds (almond meal or flour)
1 cup grated sharp cheese (I like romano, parmesan, asiago or very sharp cheddar)
1 t crushed garlic
1 t Italian spices
1 t sea salt
1) Beat eggs with a fork. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well to form a dough.
2) Line cookie sheet with parchment paper. Lay dough on top and put another sheet of parchment paper (which you have sprayed with cooking spray) on top. Using a rolling pin, roll out the dough to as thin as possible. You may need to finness the dough by cutting the ends off and adding it to other parts. you want to get a very large rectangle all the same thinness. Score the dough lightly with a butter knife. I got 92 crackers out of this recipe but I made them pretty small.
3) Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes and then flip over gently. Try to get the whole sheet of crackers over. Bake an additional 10 mnutes til they start to brown. They will brown around the edges first. Take of the ones that are done and put back in the oven. Turn the oven off and check every 10 minutes until they are done to your likeness. This is a process that you just have to wing it.
4) When cooked break into pieces gently.
