Recipe Directions

  • 1. Place walnuts in a food processor. Process them until they are in very small uniform pieces (Mindi suggests that they should resemble cous cous.). Transfer the ground walnuts to a bowl.
  • 2. Place chopped zucchini in a food processor. Process the zucchini until it's in very small pieces. Add the processed zucchini into the bowl that already has the walnuts in it.

  • 3. Add ground flax, hemp seeds and salt to the bowl.

  • 4. Stir well until fully mixed. Add enough water to make spreadable dough ( 1/2 to 1 cup)
  • 5. Spread the batter onto two dehydrator trays.
  • 6. Dehydrate at 115 degrees for the first hour, then lower to 105 degrees for the remaining time. Once they start to stay together very nicely (after a couple of hours in the dehydrator), remove them from the dehydrator. Take a knife and "cut" where you want your cracker lines to be. Once they're done (I dehydrate these for approximately 12 hours in total, because I eat them so fast that I like to leave a tiny bit of moisture still in them. You may need to leave them in longer depending on your batter and the moisture in the air), you'll be able to simply snap them along the lines that you made in the dough.
  • 7. You'll know that they're done when they look and taste like delicious crackers and snap easily. If they're still kind of wet or doughy, they are not done.
  • 8. Serve with thinly sliced tomatoes, avocado, sprouts, etc. They're crackers, so do whatever you like with them! Store them in a tightly sealed container.

The Rawtarian's Thoughts

By The Rawtarian

These buttery raw walnut zucchini crackers are to die for. Warning: Once you make these crackers you'll never be able to go back to normal raw crackers. Consider yourself warned.

These crackers have been described as the raw food alternative to the "Ritz Cracker." Well, perhaps they don't taste exactly like raw Ritz Crackers, but they sure are savory, buttery and they melt in your mouth. Pure raw cracker bliss!

Mmm, serve with thinly sliced tomato and/or avocado... TO DIE FOR!

This raw cracker recipe requires a dehydrator.

Hi Lystra,

These don't taste like zucchini, so I think you'll be fine.

Don't substitute the zucchini in this recipe, they won't work out. The zucchini is important for the texture.

If you're freaked out of these crackers, maybe try these instead, they're tasty: https://www.therawtarian.com/raw-flax-cracker-recipe

Nice job, H.U. They look delicious.

And, don't worry, they weren't meant to survive ;)

What dehydrator do you use? I use the excalibur and only had been able to fill one dehydrator tray.....
I cannot comment the crackers- they are still dehydrating. I'm looking forward to tray them ! ( sorry for my english, I'm from germany)

Raw cracker recipe - Buttery walnut zucchini crackers
5
5 out of 5

Made these last night - they are lovely! They are quite crumbly - I turned them onto the mesh after a few hours so perhaps I over-dried them. I sprinkled some with hot chilli pepper which is lovely - and I also topped a few with nutritional yeast. Next time I might mix the yeast in with the mix for a more cheesy cracker. Definitely a recipe to make again and again.

Love the texture hey?? Great idea to use them as a base for a cheesy cracker. I might have to steal that idea!

Hi Sarah!

That's strange - maybe because it was on page two?? Not sure - let me know. There could be a prob that I am not aware of. I do see it when I click here and go to page two (https://www.therawtarian.com/recipe-categories/dehydrated-raw-crackers-w...), but perhaps you were talking about a different area entirely :)

Let me know if you have a chance. Thank you!

Steal away Laura-Jane! I like the texture, though I found it hard to spread things on it as mine just crumbled so I might take them out earlier next time - or make them slightly thicker.
