YieldMakes 25 2" x 2" inch pieces
2 smallish chopped yams (optional to peel)
3 long carrots (chopped)
1 tablespoon Brazil nut oil
2 tablespoons agave nectar
¾ teaspoon cinnamon
Dash of allspice
¾ cup raw raisins (soaked 30 minutes)
2/3 cup flax seeds (soaked, dehydrated)
1. Process together yams, carrots, flax seeds, raisins, cinnamon, allspice, salt, agave nectar and Brazil nut oil.
2. Spread onto a teflex sheet. Score with a butter knife to make squares.
3. Dehydrate about 20 hours or until desired consistency is attained.
Prerequisite for soaked and dehydrated flax seeds: the easiest way to deal with flax seeds I’ve found is to soak them 5 hours in just enough water to cover all the seeds about an inch, dehydrate the big sticky mass that forms, as though you were making flax crackers, for about 15 hours.
When that’s dry, place your giant flax seed cracker—broken up some by hand—into a plastic sandwich bag, and crush with your hands or with the bottom of a cup against a surface until it looks like you just have individual flax seeds or very small clusters of flax seeds in the bag.
Why all this fuss? So we aren’t ingesting the enzyme inhibitors and so we get the most nutrients out of the flax seeds.

There’s something to give thanks for every day of the year.
And over the past few days in Washington DC, it’s felt more like November than April anyway.
This yummy flatbread tastes like something in between pumpkin pie and candied yams, with the added nutrition of flax seeds!
