View Full Version : Try this! - flax crackers with sesame seeds
07-10-2006, 03:17 PM
I decided to add sesame seeds to my plain flax crackers to see how it would be. I used the regular plain fax cracker recipe (flax seeds, soaked in water, salt, a little lemon) and mixed it in a food processor with sesame seeds. They are super great, and more crunchie.

Great idea! I love sesame seeds. Have you tried Allisa'
s nut brittle? For a sesame crunch on the sweet side.

And crunchy (well, as long as you spread the batter thin, of course!). I like adding sesame seeds to other flax recipes ... or my own that I play with. Grinding some sunflower seeds and adding to the flax makes it more cracker like and crispy, too.

I like the sunflower seed idea too :) I Haven't tried Alissa's with the garlic and ginger, but I will. I usually like plain so I can use with sweet stuff or savory stuff. I am going to add the sunflower seeds next go around :) I think I'll try some mesquite pod powder too.

I am so anxious to get some thin crunchy crackers! How do you all get them evenly spread and thin? I have the L'Equip dehydrator that is rectangular with a hole in the middle. Kinda inconvenient for spreading out batter so I have been spreading on the teflex while it is on the table, then putting it on the tray. MESSY! A lot of these batters are so heavy and thick and even full of lumpy ingredients and I don't know how to get them nice and even. Does it just take patience? I am one who used to be fussy about a pie crust being EXACTLY 1/8" thick, you know.
I just wanted to know if there is some implement you use to help spread it smoothly and if you also process your mixes down to a really thin smooth batter first.

Hi... I use a masa spreader to evenly spread cracker dough etc. for the dehydrator. It was designed for tamale making... and it works great! I'm not sure it will work with your dehydrator shape but, you can take a look at the following internet address... Masa Spreader Item #418 It costs $8.00 plus shipping.

Thanks for the link. It does look good.

If I want a thin cracker I add extra water and it spreads better. When the water is gone there is less left so it has to be thiner and crisper.

Mmmmm.....I think when I get home I am going to try all these great cracker ideas out. THanks!
