One of the benefits of eating raw food flax seed crackers, besides the fact that they taste great, is that they are high in fiber. Flax seeds contain 28 grams of dietary fiber per 100 gram serving. Dietary fiber is important for strong and regular bowel motion.
Here’s my favorite recipe for raw food flax crackers – Italian style:
Tools you need: Food Processor with “S” blade, Grinder, Dehydrator
2 cups Flax Seeds
1 cup Ground Flax Seeds
1/4 cup Nama Shoyu, Tamari or Bragg’s
3-4 T finely chopped Italian herbs to taste
In a large bowl soak whole flax seeds in 4 cups distilled water and nama shoyu or tamari for 4-6 hours.
After soaking mix in ground flax seeds, herbs and extra water if necessary. The consistency should be like a thick almond butter.
Spread the mixture evenly on dehydrator trays about 2-3 mm thick. Dehydrate at 40-45 C (110-118 F) for 6-8 hours then flip over to dry the other side for another 2-4 hours until desired crispiness is achieved.
