Flaxseed Crackers

Pin It
The husband  took me plant shopping!
Weekends are for watching basketball, sleeping for 10 hours straight, buying hanging baskets, getting dirt under your fingernails while you plant lettuce seeds and eating dinner out because you're too lazy to cook.

Mondays are for wearing dress clothes, listening to the radio while you drive to work, hoping the dogs were good while they were in the garage all day and for sticking to a menu plan.

Mondays are also for looking for after-work snacks and wishing the husband hadn't eaten all of the flaxseed crackers you had Saturday and Sunday.


Flaxseed Crackers
Slightly Adapted From This Recipe

1 cup ground flaxseeds (or 1 cup flaxseed meal)
1/3 cup Parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons wheat germ
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 cup water

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Ground the flaxseeds, if you're working with flaxseeds and not flaxseed meal. It took me 10 tablespoons to make 1 cup ground flaxseeds.

My new coffee grinder: another present the hubs got me this weekend.
Mix the flaxseeds through onion powder in a large bowl. Then stir in the water until everything is mixed well.

Spray a pan with a little nonstick cooking spray, then dump the cracker mixture onto the pan and spread it out evenly. I placed a sheet of waxed paper on top and spread the mixture by pressing down firmly with my hands. Once it was all about 1/8 inch thick, I removed the wax paper and popped the pan into the oven.

Bake for 15-18 minutes or until firm. Cut or break the crackers while they're still slightly warm.



  1. i've been eyeing different recipes for making my own crackers lately. these looks great! this is something that seems intimidating at first, but they really look great and so much better for you!

    1. I agree! I was afraid they wouldn't turn out well at all, but they were so, so easy to make.

  2. I've never made my own crackers - but I guess I better start! I have plenty of all of these ingredients. Fantastic! Thanks for the kick doll :)

    1. They're super easy, they actually taste good and they're healthy - doesn't get much better than that!

  3. Your husband was very generous this weekend! A coffee grinder and plants? I am impressed. :)

    1. Yes, a $10 coffee grinder, haha. The man doesn't know I'm not done buying plants yet.

  4. Yum! I made some cheddar-whole wheat crackers recently, but I love the idea of flour-less crackers. Can't wait to try these!

    1. I hope you've got the recipe posted. Those sound delicious!


Thanks for taking the time out of your day to show my space a little love.
