Ingredients For Flaxseed Crackers

You will need only 7 easy-to-find ingredients to create these delicious and crunchy flaxseed crackers. Here is a list of everything that you will need:

Ingredients Flaxseed Crackers
  • Flaxseed Meal – You can grind your own flax. For this recipe, I used a golden flaxseed meal because it’s lighter in color, but you can also use a brown flaxseed meal.
  • Sesame Seeds – I used black and white sesame seeds for this recipe. Feel free to use only one type.
  • Water – helps everything to bind together.
  • Onion Powder & Garlic – these two ingredients add extra flavor to the crackers. You can also add your favorite seasoning.
  • Salt – this is an important ingredient that helps balance the taste.
  • Rosemary – you can make these crackers with other herbs, like parsley, dill, or thyme.

How To Make Flaxseed Crackers

Once you see how easy it is to make these flaxseed crackers, you will never want to buy them from the store. Here is everything you have to do:

Preheat the Oven: Start by setting your oven to 350°F (180°C). This ensures the oven is at the right temperature by the time you’re ready to bake.

Mix Dry Ingredients: In a large mixing bowl, combine all the dry ingredients – flaxseed meal, onion powder, garlic powder, paprika, salt, black and white sesame seeds, and dried rosemary. Whisk them together until they are well mixed.

Form the Dough: Gradually pour ½ cup of water over the mixed dry ingredients. Using your hands, mix everything together until a dough forms. The dough should hold together without being too sticky. If it seems too dry, add a tablespoon of cold water at a time until the desired consistency is achieved.

Roll Out the Dough: Place the dough between two sheets of parchment paper. This prevents sticking and makes rolling easier. Use a rolling pin to roll the dough into a large rectangle about 1/8-inch thick. Aim for an even thickness to ensure uniform baking.

Cut the Crackers: Remove the top sheet of parchment. Using a pizza cutter or a sharp knife, cut the dough into 1-inch squares. You don’t need to separate them; just make sure the cuts go all the way through the dough.

Bake the Crackers: Carefully transfer the parchment paper with the cut dough onto a baking tray. Bake in the preheated oven for about 20 minutes. The crackers should be lightly golden and crisp when done.

Cool and Serve: After baking, remove the tray from the oven. Let the crackers cool on the tray for a few minutes – they will crisp up further as they cool. Once cooled, break them apart along the cut lines.

Tips and Variations

  • If you notice the crackers at the edges of the tray turning brown but those in the middle aren’t quite done yet, just take the tray out of the oven. Carefully remove the browned crackers, and then put the rest back in to finish cooking.
  • Even Rolling: Roll your dough to an even thickness. This ensures all your crackers bake uniformly and prevents some from burning while others are still soft.
  • Watch the Oven: Keep an eye on the crackers, especially towards the end of baking, as they can go from perfectly golden to burnt quickly.
  • Dough too crumbly: If your dough is too crumbly, add water a tablespoon at a time. The dough should hold together without sticking to your hands.
  • Texture: If you prefer crispier crackers, roll the dough thinner. For a chewier texture, keep the dough slightly thicker.

Flavor Variations

  • Spicy: For an even spicier kick, try adding diced jalapeños or a dash of cayenne pepper to the mix.
  • Garlic Crackers: Add extra garlic powder or minced fresh garlic for a more intense garlic flavor, perfect for garlic enthusiasts.
  • Everything Bagel Seasoning: For a New York deli twist, top your crackers with everything bagel seasoning before baking.
  • Cumin: It’ll give them a warm, earthy flavor that’s wonderfully aromatic and a bit spicy.
  • For a smoky flavor, add some smoked paprika to the dough.
  • For cheesy crackers, sprinkle some grated Parmesan on the dough before baking.

Storing Ideas

  • Room Temperature: You can store these crackers in a ziplock bag on the counter at room temperature for up to seven days.
  • Freezer: These flaxseed crackers can also be stored in the freezer in a ziplock bag for up to one month.
