View Full Version : Flaxseed crackers

I made the flaxseed crackers, which I love the taste of. I was wondering after you put them into the food processor and process them are they still supposed to be whole seeds? I accidently put to much water in them. When I made them the seeds were whole, they still taste good. Thanks :)

When I make mine, some of the seeds remain whole... when they are soaked, it is harder to blend them completely like when they are dry. :D Atleast that's what I have learned... I love flax crackers too- I do find that if I don't soak the seeds before a recipe, I get a bubblely stomach...
Hope this helps :D

I put my flax seeds in a pint jar and put the blender blades on the jar. Grinds them up good without any mess. After that I make my crackers.

I always wondered this, but never experimented to find out; but what about grinding the seeds and THEN soaking?? How do yall think that would turn out?

Raw I prefer a less grainy cracker so I just grind them to powder before I make the recipe and it works fine. I use my coffee grinder since I don't need it for coffee now. :D

I wonder the same, Rawk. Once ground dry, do you then soak?

you would have a big blob that would be hard to work with

Curtis, after you ground them do you soak the powder as the orginal recipe calls for. I like them the way they turned out with the seeds whole but was concerned about earing alot of whole :rolleyes: s seeds, I have heard it's not good to consume them. Thanks.

if you want to grind the flax seeds, you dont soak them no. They get too goopy to grind once they are soaked, and if you soak the meal, it will just absorb all the water.

Alice, the seeds are supposed to be whole if it doesnt tell you to grind. A food processor does not grind flax seeds.
Hope this helps

Yes sweetgoddess, this answers my question. Thanks so much. :)

I made the crackers without grinding, and they were very good. I soaked them first. I think maybe there is some benifit to soaking, as in it starts the sprouting process, which we all know is a good thing. I think this is the case with flax seeds just like any other seed/nut (that they begin to sprout).

Thanks Monica, that's true. I didn't think about it that way. :D
