Flax Seed Recipes
and Low Carb Crackers

These flax seed recipes are vegan raw crackers that you can easily make at home. 

Flax seeds are very low in "net" carbs, so it's very easy to make a variety of low carb crackers using flax seeds.

And flax seeds make a great binder, so it's easy to make flax seed recipes with many types of low carb fruits and vegetables.

You can keep it real simple or be very creative! 

Just make the basic low carb flax seed recipe or create a more savory one.


Flax Seed Recipes
- Basic Low Carb Crackers

This is the most basic way to make a flax seed cracker recipe.

  1. Just soak your ground or whole flax seeds in water (at least 45 minutes). 
  2. Then spread thinly onto a lined tray or cookie sheet.
  3. Dehydrate until crispy in a dehydrator or in your oven set at the lowest temperature.

You can turn this recipe into a savory low carb cracker by using an Italian or Mexican seasoning that you create yourself or already have available in your pantry.

Low Carb Crackers

Ingredients:

  • 16 ounces Radish (wet chopped)
  • 2 cups Celery (wet chopped)
  • 1 Large Sweet Onion (wet chopped)
  • 1/2 cup of Ground Flax Seeds
  • 1 cup of Filtered Water
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp. of Seasoning
  1. You could also let your mixture sit for an hour or more before dehydrating to activate the gelatinous properties of the flax seeds.
  2. Then dehydrate until crispy in your dehydrator.

The Best Food Dehydrators

Food dehydrators will come in many shapes and sizes.  There are round dehydrators and square dehydrators.  Four tray dehydrators and nine tray dehydrators. 

And there are cheap dehydrators and really expensive dehydrators. 

I guess it will just depend on how much you plan on using a dehydrator when it comes to picking the right one for you.

I've only used a couple myself, so I can only offer advice on these two dehydrators...... 

The Nesco is a stackable dehydrator that is relatively inexpensive and pretty effective. 

The one thing that I really didn't like about this dehydrator was the hole running down the center of the machine.

I found it to be a big problem when making raw cracker recipes - or recipes that needed to be spread out uniformly.

I much prefer the Excalibur 4 tray which has square trays and no hole down the middle for making raw cracker recipes, dehydrating fruit, etc. 

I also think the Excalibur is a better quality machine.

Be aware that dehydrators and even the Excalibur can rise above the temperature that you set it at by 10 degrees or so.

Better yet, get a device that can tell you the exact temperature inside your dehydrator.

There is no end to how many different types of crackers you could create.

Try using different vegetables and fruits to create a different taste sensation every time.

Also, adding spices and herbs will help to add more depth of flavor to your flax seed recipes.
