View Full Version : My first batch of flax crackers
01-13-2009, 10:56 AM
Well, I've got my first batch of flax crackers "cooking" in the dehydrator. After reading so many recipes, it seemed deviations are the norm, so I did my own thing: ground golden flax, sunflower & pumpkin seeds, onion, rosemary, sundried tomatoes, garlic, a little Bragg's and some pepper. I can't wait to see how they turn out! I did measure everything so I can tweak the recipe as needed or repeat it they turn out well.
Any thoughts on how long they need to dry? Or just do them until they're crisp?

Well done, sounds like you chose a great combo!
Just keep um in there till they are done; it's different depending on where you live with the amount of moisture in the air. I have been know to dehydrate a cracker four five days but the norm is more like 24 hrs filpping over off the teflex as soon as you can.
. . . also a cracker with sweets like date/ agave never really get crisp but those with maple do!

I flip mine after about 7 hours - overall dry time for me is anywhere from 10 to 15 hours- I normally do not add too much to mine and spread them thin.

Yes, depends on what all is in the cracker. They sound VERY good!

Oh, and when you flip them, if you want them nice and neat cut them into squares with a nice clean pair of scissors. (less crumbs)
There is a nice sweeter version to try:
In FP: banana, 1t cinnamon, pinch of salt, large handful of raisins and maple syrup* or agave.
Mix and then fold in soaked flax. (you can also add some chopped pecans, coconut, etc)

I'm definitely going to try some of the sweeter ones when these are done! Thanks for the suggestions.

You are most welcome. They are really good with a little nut butter on them too. MMMM
Just toss in stuff you enjoy, it can be anything really, cranberries, apples, walnuts, chocolate...
Ok, must stop. I'm making myself hungry. Enjoy!
