Flax Crackers
Health Highlights


1 cup Flaxseeds
3 tbsp Chia seeds
1 cup Water, filtered
3 tbsp hulled Sunflower seeds
3 tbsp Pumpkin seeds (pepitas) (or crushed almonds, walnuts, other nuts or seeds)
1 1/2 tsp Sea Salt
1 tsp Black pepper
1 tsp Onion powder
1 tsp Garlic powder
1 tsp Rosemary, dried


  1. Preheat oven to 200°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, soak flax and chia seeds in water for 15-20 minutes. This is very important to bind the ingredients.
  3. After flax & chia are done soaking, add the rest of the ingredients and mix well. You will probably have to use your hands - it feels kinda weird but works the best!
  4. Spread the mixture as evenly as you can on the lined baking sheet. You will want to layer to be about ¼ inch thick.  
  5. Bake at 200°F for an hour and a half. Flip it over carefully using a spatula. Once it’s flipped over, bake for another hour and a half.
  6. Turn off the oven and let rest for 5 minutes in the oven. Take out and let cool to touch.
  7. It can now be broken into cracker-sized pieces. Don’t worry, they will be uneven!
  8. Store in an airtight container and enjoy within 7-10 days of baking.


Experiment with different flavors! Some of my favorites:

  • Add cumin, cayenne, chili powder for a spicy cracker that goes great with guacamole
  • Add nutritional yeast for a "cheesy" chip
  • Add lots of dill and dip in cream cheese
