I’m still on a low carb kick. It is a lot harder than I expected. I’m always on the lookout for a low carb replacement for high carb deliciousness. Last night I made some flax seed crackers to eat with my soup. They were delicious. I can already see them being a staple with soup. They are so versatile you can flavor them with anything!
Here’s what you’ll need:
400 degree oven
Parchment paper or baking paper or silicone mat
Medium sized bowl for mixing
1 cup flax seed meal
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup water
chives to taste
sesame seeds to taste
Mix the dry ingredients together then add water and mix.
Pour, spoon or use method of your choice to put the mixture onto parchment paper or silicone baking paper.
I laid another sheet of baking paper on top and smoothed it out with my hand. I did not want to get out my rolling pin for some reason.
As you can see in the above picture I am smoothing it out as I took the picture. As for how thin to make it…. It is your cracker so your choice. If you like it thin roll it out thin. Whatever thickness you choose be consistent. The thinner it is the faster it will bake. So you don’t want parts of it to be thin and other parts to be thick.
I did not take the time to make sure mine was perfectly shaped. I really didn’t care. I was in a hurry to get it in the oven and baking so I could try them. I can be so impatient!
I was worried about cutting them afterwards so I scored them before I baked them.
I baked them for 15 minutes in a 400 degree oven then cut them while they were still warm. I also ate my first one while they were still warm. YUMMY!
MMMMMMM. Just look at all that cracker-y goodness!
We ate them with some hummus and our soup (click on links to see posts on those). I made about 24 crackers and we ate them all. I think next time I will try garlic and rosemary and see how delicious those turn out! How about some spice for some low carb fire crackers? Oh the possibilities are endless!
You know… you could even involve the kids with the rolling out. If they helped make it they would eat it. Think of it as a sneaky way to get your kids to make a healthier choice.
