flaxseed and carrot crackers

Raw, vegan and paleo dehydrator crackers.

When you’re entertaining (or just snacking) a great cracker really makes all the difference. You want one that is flavoursome but not overpowering, one that provides nutrition and fibre rather than just acting as a glorified dip spoon, and one that you can trust not to break when going deep for a big scoop.

You can look forever trying to find a store-bought cracker that is not highly processed, cooked under high temperatures and made with nutrient-empty starches, especially if you want gluten free. Luckily, making a batch of golden flaxseed, (or linseed by another name) crackers couldn’t be easier with the Breeze food dehydrator. It really is a case of mix, spread and dehydrate!

Flaxseed and carrot crackers are nutty, (without nuts), full of healthy fats (without a drop in the mix) and packed with fibre. They’re also gluten free, grain free, egg free and sugar free. In fact, they’re ‘free’ from many things, but certainly not flavour! They’ll hold up well under the stress of a pile of your favourite cracker toppings and dive into the thickest dip without crumbling in your fingers.

Are you wondering what keeps these crackers together with no egg or starch? When you add water to flaxseed something special occurs – the seeds become gelatinous and sticky. It’s a unique feature that vegan and raw food enthusiasts love, and not surprising flaxseeds are commonly used as an egg replacement or binding agent.
