Flaxseed Crackers

Flaxseed Crackers: A Nutrient-Rich Homemade Recipe for Delicious and Healthy Snacking


  • 1 cup ground flaxseeds (flaxseed meal)
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (adjust to taste)
  • Optional: Herbs and spices for flavor (e.g., garlic powder, onion powder, rosemary)


  1. Preheat the Oven:
    • Preheat your oven to 325°F (163°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Prepare Flaxseed Dough:
    • In a mixing bowl, combine the ground flaxseeds with water and let it sit for a few minutes. The mixture will thicken and become a dough-like consistency.
  3. Add Olive Oil and Salt:
    • Add olive oil and salt to the flaxseed mixture. Mix well to ensure even distribution of ingredients.
  4. Optional: Add Flavorings:
    • For added flavor, incorporate herbs and spices of your choice. This could include garlic powder, onion powder, rosemary, or any preferred seasoning.
  5. Roll Out the Dough:
    • Place the flaxseed dough between two sheets of parchment paper. Using a rolling pin, roll it out into a thin, even layer. Aim for a thickness of around 1/8 inch.
  6. Cut into Shapes:
    • Use a knife or a pizza cutter to cut the rolled-out dough into desired shapes. Traditional squares or rectangles work well.
  7. Transfer to Baking Sheet:
    • Carefully transfer the cut-out crackers onto the prepared baking sheet. Leave a little space between each cracker.
  8. Bake to Crispy Perfection:
    • Bake in the preheated oven for approximately 15-20 minutes or until the edges turn golden brown. Keep an eye on them to prevent over-baking.
  9. Cool and Enjoy:
    • Allow the flaxseed crackers to cool completely on the baking sheet. Once cooled, they will become crispier. Break them apart along the cut lines.
  10. Serve and Store:
    • Serve your flaxseed crackers with your favorite dips or cheeses. Store any leftovers in an airtight container for future snacking.

Enjoy your homemade flaxseed crackers as a nutritious and flavorful snack! Feel free to customize the recipe with additional ingredients to suit your taste preferences.
