How To Make Home Made Flax Crackers

There are countless videos on how to make countless things on the wonderful Tube of You… So if you are wanting to learn something, anything- youtube it.

Here is my favorite how-to on home-made flax crackers.  From this demo you can learn how to make your own flavored crackers and add your own spice combinations.  I personally find putting onions in my crackers makes a strong cracker taste which I don’t like.  I leave out the onion and just put fresh onions on top of the cracker when making a sandwich.

You do need a dehydrator for this.  And I highly recommend one, along with a slow cooker- for all sorts of healthy food preparations.


Why flax?

Although flaxseed contains all sorts of healthy components, it owes its primary healthy reputation to three of them:

  • Omega-3 essential fatty acids, “good” fats that have been shown to have heart-healthy effects. Each tablespoon of ground flaxseed contains about 1.8 grams of plant omega-3s.
  • Lignans, which have both plant estrogen and antioxidantqualities. Flaxseed contains 75 to 800 times more lignans than other plant foods.
  • Fiber. Flaxseed contains both the soluble and insoluble types.
