Recipe Directions

  • 1. Add all ingredients to food processor. Process well, until quite well blended but still chunky. 40 seconds or so.
  • 2. Spread onto two dehydrator sheets. Use parchment paper or Teflex sheets. (For the love of God, never use waxed paper!)
  • 3. Dehydrate for 1 hour at 115. After one hour score the crackers with a knife so that they’ll be easier to separate later. Dehydrate for another 6 hours at 105. After 6 hours flip crackers and remove parchment paper or Teflex sheets. Dehydrate for one more hour at 105 until dry and cracker-like!

The Rawtarian's Thoughts

By The Rawtarian

Raw flax cracker recipes... Yeah, I know, there are a zillion of recipes for raw flax dehydrator crackers online. But how many of them are actually really good standby recipes that you want to make again and again? For me, this is my favorite raw flax cracker recipe -- hands down.

What makes this recipe special? As always, I like how there aren't very many ingredients in it. But somehow, I think because of the walnuts, these crackers have a very nice, hearty, satisfying weight to them.

I like to eat one or two of these crackers when I'm feeling as though I need a raw flax cracker recipe that'll really fill me up... and that tastes great, too.

Do not use a high-speed blender for this recipe. A food processor will work much better. Dehydrating times can vary wildly depending on the season, the humidity and your dehydrator. The best thing to do is hang out at home and check on them every couple of hours until you get the hang of making crackers. Try not to nibble too much on these raw flax crackers before they're done!

Note: If you don't have a tomato, you can use an apple + 1/4 cup water instead of the tomato.

Hi there!
I have recently bought a dehydrator and this is going the be the recipe I try first. My dehydrator goes from 35-70 degrees Celsius. When you speak about 105 and 115 degrees, are you referring to Fahrenheit or is my dehydrator just not a very warm one?!?!

I am going to say yes, you can use pumpkin seeds instead of walnuts/pecans in this recipe.

It might need a small amount of additional oil if you do this (since pumpkin seeds aren't as oily as walnuts/pecans) - you could add 1 teaspoon of olive oil or coconut oil etc. But it will probably be okay without adding the additional oil. It just won't taste quite as nice and fatty without it :)

This makes an amazingly delicious cracker! All my non-raw, non-vegan friends love these as much as I do. I made it the first couple of times with a red pepper and finally used a tomato as the recipe called for. Completely delicious. I use walnuts but will try them sometime with the pecans. Thanks for all your great recipes!

Hi Ellen,

A red pepper substitute would be tasty I am sure! I love red pepper in my raw crackers.

Glad you're enjoying these crackers! I just made a huge batch of juice pulp crackers yesterday (attempting to make up a new recipe) and they are not very good, so I am jealous that you're eating these haha

Thanks for weighing in on this, Ellen!

If one soaks and then dehydrates (dries them) then it's fine, because you are using dry nuts :)

Just don't use wet nuts because they won't process well in this recipe.

Do not soak for this recipe. Using them wet will alter the consistency for processing. (but you can soak and THEN dry if that’s a thing that u do)

Hi Penny, absolutely! You can put these in a big ziploc bag and freeze them. Works really well. You can practically eat them right out of the freezer!

Marko you can try chia seeds. They react pretty much the same as flax seeds

Is there something I can do instead of the tomato or the apple plus water? I have no tomato, but I wonder if the apple won't make them too sweet and add more sugar content than I would want. Thanks! Sound wonderful.

Hi Angie, red pepper would work here. The apple is fine - it won't make it too sweet.
