4-Ingredient Flax Crackers

Great as a crunchy snack, for packing on-the-go, dipping in hummus or this cashew veggie spread. Also, an easy way to get your daily dose of flax seed.


4-Ingredient Plant-Based Flax Crackers


It’s best to purchase flax seeds whole and then grind them up when you’re ready to use them. Once ground up, flax goes bad quickly. Typically I will throw a couple of cups in a high speed blender at the beginning of the week and blend until a flax meal is formed. A coffee grinder also does a great job of grinding flax seed, though you’ll have to do smaller batches.

Whatever I’m not using right away I store in a sealed container in the refrigerator for use throughout the week. If storing whole flax seeds for more than a couple of weeks, I recommend keeping them in the freezer.

While this recipe is fairly basic, the flavor options are endless. Trying including…

  • sesame seeds
  • garlic and onion powder
  • dried basil, oregano and parsley
  • black pepper and cayenne powder
  • your favorite spices and herbs
