Recipe Directions

Soak Flax seeds in a pint glass filed with water for 30 minutes before using.
While they’re soaking, process the Onions (quartered) in your Food Processor (FP) with the finest (smallest) slicing blade. (not the chopping/normal ‘S’ blade). Should make long thin strips/slices of onions. (Julienne) Set aside in very, very large bowl.
Change your FP blade to the finest grating blade you have and process the Carrots. Add to the bowl with the sliced Onions.
If soak time has passed. Put soaked Flax Seeds and the soak Water into your Blender. Refill the pint glass with water and add that water to blender also. Blend for just a bit, it will become a thick gel/cream with a few whole flax seeds and bits of all sizes.
Pour Flax cream blend into bowl with Onions and Carrots. Add the Olive Oil and the Salt. Stir very well with large spoon. Allow to sit for 5 to 10 minutes. While waiting cover 3 Excalibur dehydrator trays with cling film or use teflex sheets.
Divide your mixture evenly between the 3 trays and spread out evenly on each one, just less than a half inch thick. Place into Dehydrator and run until dried well on top. Flip onto normal uncovered trays and continue to dehydrate until almost crispy. It’s best to cut it about two hours after you flip it before it gets too crispy.
As an option, try stopping one tray before it dries all the way and leave those squares more flexible.

Just stuck it in the dehydrator, not sure if the ratio was right. The recipe here says 1&1/2 pounds of carrots & onions & at purelyraw.com the recipe has 1&1/3 - I went for 1&1/2... My mixture was quite watery so I added some more flax.
Another mistake I made was putting 1 pint of water + flax when it was supposed to be the flax in a pint glass with water filling up - oh silly me! Fingers crossed, hope it turns out good though I'm not sure if it will be as good as the photo! Thanks for the recipe.. Bless

You are so welcome. I still feel this way about this recipe today and I have been eating it now for 3 years. It's nice to hear that others enjoy it too. That's what makes GoneRaw so great. Thanks again. Cheers Chris

This is an amazing recipe. I was getting a little burned out on flax crackers and am so new to raw I wasn't sure what else to try. I loved it, loved it, loved it. I took 3crows suggestion of making a sandwich with avocado and tomato and then added some sprouts. Fantastic! The few raw recipes I have tried left me with the feeling that I've just wasted ingredients. Not this one! I don't have a food processor so I sliced the onions on a mandolin and chopped the carrots in my Vita Mix. Worked great. I don't think I've ever used that many onions at one time before. Thank you so much for sharing.

3crows: Zoe and I often make triple batches and even have made 5 at a time a few times. We always work in these quantities though, because we are limited by the size of our bowls.

Amazing!! Made a batch yesterday - and ate almost half of one D tray before it was fully dehydrated!! Well, I had to test it right - and then I couldn't stop...
Today I ate it as an avocado sandwich with thick slices of tomato. All those flavors together were bliss. This recipe is a keeper for sure! Thanks Chris. Just what my Autumn tastebuds are calling for too.
Is it safe to just double the recipe if I want to fill my D trays? Or would that throw things out of wack? Wouldn't want to spoil it!

This looks great and I can't wait to try it! A couple of questions come to mind: What temp do you have your dehydrator and how long does it take generally before you flip it over? I dont have a timer so I have to try and time things right over night, etc.

pianissima: I don't juice a lot of carrots right now. I have thought about using pulp before but I have never tried it. Probably you'd loose a little sweetness and the onion taste would be stronger. I would probably like it that way also, actually.
zrising: Once it is dried it will keep for weeks in a paper bag on the counter top. It could also be refrigerated or frozen I guess. I always eat my batch in a few days.

I still haven't been able to dissect what part of Matt Amsden's Onion bread made me ill. Ever since then I've been using chia seeds for bread/crackers instead of flax with great results. I'm going to go for it with this bread (especially since the former bread has lots of nama) and you and Zoe always have amazing recipes. I'll post back tonight!
randommara-I made a version of Raw Food, Real World's Raw corn chips using chia instead of flax and zucchini instead of corn. Today is cracker day so i'll make them again and post the recipe for you w/ picture. They are my favorite cracker/ bread.

Wow this looks sooooo good! Thanks so much for posting it. I was looking for a bread/cracker that was low flax and high veg. Have you ever tried this with other veg like say zucchini? Then it could go with sweet stuff too!

Feel silly after Sovajo made a point to say "so detailed and clear" hehehehe
oh well, I prefer to be safe then sorry since I hate to waste food. I've made some dire mistakes in the past experimenting with my raw food journey.
Thanks Chris!!

Hey JoyceH, You are exactly right, just to clarify, flax into pint glass, fill with water, soak 30 minutes, dump into blender, re-fill pint glass and add this water to the blender also, then blend it up!

Wow, this looks amazing! My husband had trouble with the raw onion breads but maybe with carrots, this might be the answer for his irritable tummy.
One question: When you are soaking your flaxseeds in the pint glass, I assume it is completely filled with water (water almost to the brim)? Am I correct? And then another pint glass completely filled with water? Sorry, but I want to make sure I do this right the first time. Seems like a lot of water but then again it's probably in proportion with the other ingredients.

You're welcome! Zoe took the picture. She's got skills!!!
Make sure you weigh your onions after you clean and quarter them. The ratios of everything here is so crucial since there are only 5 ingredients.
Enjoy!

carrie I don't know how many onions that it. It depends on the size of your onions. They are different all over. You'll have to weigh them once and count them then make sure you always get the same size onions.
