Crunchy Flax Crackers
Updated: Sep 22
Crackers are just a vehicle for eating delicious toppings, but they can add sugar and unhealthy additives to an otherwise healthy snack. Try these super alternative. They contain lots of healthy fibre and are a source of selenium, potassium and iron without any sugar. Change around the spices to suit your taste.
130g ground flaxseeds
50g grated strong cheese (e.g. gruyere or strong cheddar)
2 teaspoons dried oregano
½ teaspoon dried chilli flakes
½ teaspoon mustard powder
Sea salt & black pepper
150ml cold water
Preheat the oven to 130deg C fan oven. Line a baking sheet with greaseproof paper.
Mix all the ingredients in a bowl to form a dough.
Spread the mixture out onto the lined baking sheet. Use your hands or a palette knife or fish slice to flatten the mixture out as thinly.
Bake for approx. 30 minutes. Increase the oven temperature to 200deg C and bake for a further 10 minutes, until the mixture is slightly brown and firm to the couch in the centre.
Remove from the oven and allow to cool before breaking into crackers.
