Raw Flax and Sesame Crackers

recipe for raw flax crackers
Raw flax crackers

Of course, raw crackers are never baked. Rather, you can get the same crunchy and crisp texture by using a dehydrator. The moisture is all removed without having to raise the temperature too high. Pretty clever, if you ask me.

  • 1 cup flax seeds
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup oat flour (raw)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 3 tbs dry onion flakes
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup sesame seeds

Before you start, you should soak the flax seeds in the first measure of water, for about 6 hours. After that, stir together everything else except for the sesame seeds. Spread the mixture out on the non-stick sheets that you use with a dehydrator for making fruit leather, or just line your dehydrator trays with waxed paper. Keep it fairly thin, no thicker than about 1/4″. If you want it to break up in to square crackers later, you can draw a knife through each layer to score it.

Sprinkle with sesame seeds and start up the dehydrator. Set the temperature to 130F for the first hour, then drop it back down to 115F. Keep drying for at least another 2 hours. Once they have dried enough to hold together, take your crackers off the sheets and put them back directly on the dehydrator trays. Dry for another two or three hours until they are nice and crisp.
