I like to buy my flax seeds in bulk from a farm in Michigan that sells through vendors at Farmer's Markets or even some other local harvest stores. The picture of the bag is below. They sell the golden flax (which is below). And also probably the more popular variety, the dark brown seed which is said to have a more nutty flavor, but I personally don't notice too much of a difference. On the back of the bag, the recommendation is to start only taking 1 ts. a day ground up in some food, because I guess too much too fast may be some sort of a surprise to your digestion. :) So, if you haven't eaten much flax seeds in the past maybe you should limit your intake of these crackers to not more than three or four. Which will be hard because they are so tasty!
Mix together in large mixing bowl:
Bake in a 250 degree oven for 2 hours, and then let cool in the oven for another 3 hours.
Then carefully break up the crackers and put in a air tight container, or zip lock bag.
These crackers taste amazing on a salad, or in soups. They are crispy and depending on the thickness can be used great with some goat cheese as an appetizer or snack. They taste delish, and you are also getting a great dose of digestible fiber with eat bite. There are some gluten-free crackers available on the market, but to make some at home means you will be tasting freshness over a packaged variety. They could also pass for chips, salad croutons, or bread for soup. So try 'em out and enjoy the health benefits as well.
