Simple flax seed crackers
Made of only 2 ingredients:
- ground flax seeds
Cover a volume of ground flax seeds with the same volume of water (for ex 1/2 cup of ground flax seeds with 1/2 cup of water) and allow to soak for 1 1/2 hours. The flax seeds are going to absorb all the water. You can add some spices of your choice (cumin, paprika, dried garlic etc.) to give the recipe your own twist.
Spread the mixture about 3 millimeters (1/8 inch) thick on a non-stick parchment paper. It’s important to use a non-stick parchment paper ; it makes it much easier to take off the flax seed cracker layer when it’s done.
Bake in the oven for 20 min at 180 degrees Celsius. After the 20 min, turn the flax seed layer over and bake it for an extra 10 min on the other side. [If your oven can cook food at a lower temperature you may want to try to bake it at a very low temperature for a longer period of time to preserve the qualities of flax seeds’ healthy fats. Flax seeds are rich in polyunsaturated fat.]
Once the flax seed layer seems crunchy and crispy, slice the crackers using a pair of scissors. If you used 1/2 cup of flax seeds, you get about 10 crackers.
