This tasty flax crackers recipe is sweet, salty and spicy and flavored with garam masala.  Garam masala is an aromatic blend of spices common in North Indian and South Asian cuisines. These super healthy crackers are primarily made of nutritious EFA rich flax seeds, which are  mixed with vegetables and seasonings to make them delicious, and then dehydrated to preserve the abundant enzymes and nutrition.  

Along with garam masala, this healthy flax crackers recipe has some coconut sugar and cayenne, which brings out the garam masala and enriches the flavor. If you like a less spicy cracker you can omit, or lower the amount of, the cayenne and same goes with the coconut sugar.  For me, I love the flavor that the combination brings all together. The sweet, salty and spicy flavors work in harmony here for a wonderfully, tasty and abundantly nutritious crispy cracker.

You will need a dehydrator to make these crackers. It’s worth it for the health benefits dehydrating your food provides. Check them out on my Resource page. I have listed my favorite machines and items that I love and use all the time.

Dragon Flax Crackers Recipe

Ingredients

2 cups Flax – soaked in 3 cups of water
1 cup Flax – ground
1 Red Pepper
1 Zucchini
1 Carrot
1 Onion – approx. ¾ cup
½ cup Sesame seeds
optional – ¼ cup Coconut Sugar
¼ cup Tamari
1” Ginger
2 Garlic cloves
1 Tbsp Garam Masala
optional – 1 tsp Cayenne

Note: I loved this recipe with both the coconut sugar and cayenne added, but adapt according to preference. These will also turn out great without adding these ingredients if you prefer to have unsweetened or less spicy crackers.

Directions

Place 2 cups of flax together with 3 cups of water in a big bowl. While flax is soaking in water prepare vegetables. Peel carrots and chop all vegetables, ginger and garlic. Place the vegetables, ginger and garlic in a food processor and process until they are all broken down into very small uniform size pieces.  When the flax soaking has formed a gel and thickened up add the processed mixture and all of the rest of the ingredients. Mix all together well.

If the mixture has thickened up you can add some more water to make it easier to spread. Mix again well and then transfer 3 cups of the mixture to a teflex sheet and spread out into evenly. Continue spreading 3 cups of the mixture on teflex sheets until you run out. I got a little over 3 sheets. Score to desired cracker size with the edge of a spatula or dull knife.  Dehydrate for 8 to 10 hours and then flip onto a mesh sheet and continue dehydrating for another 8 to 10 hours until completely dry and crispy.

Seal in an air tight container. Best stored in a cool, dark dry place free of humidity to keep them at their freshest and crispest state.

Chop vegetables, ginger and garlic. I chopped more than necessary. They just need to be chopped into big chunks as the food processor is going to do the majority of the chopping.  ..sometimes I get carried away chopping up vegetables.

Mix it all up. I do this by hand. It’s kind of messy, but getting your hands right in there works great. Add a bit more water if necessary to get a good easily spreadable consistency.

Spread 3 cups of the mixture out onto teflex sheets. These are for the larger Excalibur dehydrator trays 14 inches x 14 inches. Check out dehydrators from my resource page here. After they are spread out evenly, score them to desired size.

Dehydrate for about 16 to 20 hours, flipping over onto a mesh screen when they are dry enough to do so. Dehydrate until very dry and crispy. The time will vary according to how wet they are to begin with, humidity and other factors. This is why I give an average time frame. These can be over dried by several hours and they will be fine. It is actually hard to go wrong with them, dehydrating gives you lots of flexibility time wise.

When they are finished store for later or plate and serve.
