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.

I have been eating raw for over a year now and have learned to make many different kinds of crackers. I must say... These crackers are absolutely the very best... best crunch and best taste! They are a hit wherever I take them. Can't wait to try some of your other recipes!

Is there a way of making crackers without a dehydrator? Perhaps in the oven on a very low temp so it's still 'raw'? Thanks :)

Hi Anni,

No sorry, a dehydrator is definitely required. The oven doesn't work. I've tried!

Hi, I would like to purchase a dehydrator to make beautiful recipes such as these but I would like some advice... I'm looking at Excalibur... Are they a good brand? Is it important to get one with a timer? Or save my money and get one without a timer? Hope you guys can help ;-)

Hi Sjaan,

General principles: 8-to-10-trays are ideal, and do not get a round dehydrator because they don't circulate air properly.

Best dehydrator is 9-tray Excalibur, hands down. But... it is expensive! http://tinyurl.com/ah6o3qt

For the budget-conscious, you can also get a Vegikiln - they are cheaper, white, not as "reputable" but they get the job done if price is a big factor. The main difference is that this one doesn't have a door that closes all the trays in (which isn't a big deal unless you want to dehydrate taller items and have to remove trays, but you can cover the holes with aluminum foil if need be): http://tinyurl.com/avb59e3

Sedonas are supposed to be great too, but I haven't tried one myself

Hope this helps!

best dehydrator is the Sedona. it has two working fans, and is absolutely quiet.

i cant tell you how impressed i am with this recipe! i will keep it as my alltime favorite cracker recipe, WITH THE RED PEPPER!! i tried it the second time with cherry tomatoes and the texture and flavor didnt match up. i sampled them and sold them at a little organic market yesterday and they were very well recieved!! i love em on top of a green salad as my protein. ( im a vegan) they look really pretty on the salad, too. turns my everyday salad into fine cuisine! thanks for checking with me. keep inspiring us!!

making notes to my copy of your recipe... love this one!! the red pepper worked in a pinch. delicious. must say i soaked all the nuts and seeds so the dehydrating time doubled. i will be making these again and try it with the tomato next time.

Hi Suzi! Glad you're enjoying these! I've gotta say, they might go funky in a week - especially if they weren't really crispy (moisture + warmth = mold)

hello and thinking of you as i get ready to make another batch of these, as i keep hearing the same question at my house w/ family and friends , "do you have any of those crackers left?" i am compelled to share the fact that i made your crackers and they stayed fresh, delicious and crispy for 5 weeks in glass boxes in the fridge with parchment between the layers. i did soak my nuts and rinse them first, so my dehydating time about doubled. it was worth it. i am so pleased to have my perfect raw cracker. thanks for this one : )
