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.

Do you soak any of the nuts or seeds overnight?

This makes very very good crackers! I also made a batch and didn't break it apart into crackers for a really nice crust for a raw pizza.

I have tried many raw cracker recipes and this one is - by far - the most delicious one I have ever had. The flavors explode in your mouth! I added some fresh cilantro and they are absolutely irresistible. Thanks for the recipe!

Why will a high speed blender not work? I have a really nice Kitchen Aid food processor, but it is a pain to assemble and clean. I prefer using my Vitamix whenever I can. What's the reason a blender is not good for this recipe?

Hi Maureen,

The way I see it, basically, blender is for liquidy stuff (smoothies, icing, soup, sauce) and food processor is for dryer stuff (brownie, cake, cookie dough etc). Cracker batter can go either way, but I find that really dry stuff (especially heavy on nuts) is a PAIN and doesn't really work in a blender.

Are we supposed to soak the nuts before processing - I am sure I made these before - and you soaked for an hour or so....

This are good but after 11 hours, still aren't crunchy. (And yes, I'm nibbling along the way) I wish I would have soaked the onions first because they still have a bite. I used coconut aminos and added honey, raisins and caraway. Then I sprinkle mushroom salt which made it! Thank you! This is my first attempt at dehydrating! I hope I don't get addicted to these!

Hi Deborah, sounds like an excellent success for your first dehydrator attempt!

One important note - honey does not dehydrate, so that might have contributed to the lack of crunch :) (Best to never use honey in the dehydrator)

Also, re: onions, using sweet yellow onions can be the yummiest

Hey! Thanks for the awesome recipes! I was wondering if there was any sub for almonds? Thanks?

Yep - in this recipe you can omit the almonds and use any combo of sunflower seeds, pecans, cashews or walnuts instead

I need to make bigger batches of these; they're just too yummy to be true .

Yep! I recommend making one batch and then making another batch right after (no need to wash your equipment in between) - because if you try to do a double batch at once it might be too big for your food processor

Shelly Marshall's Review

Raw flax cracker recipe

Another awesome recipe! I made these yesterday, and added fresh Italian parsley (it just sounded like it would go with the tomato and onion), and the taste was great. I only dehydrated them for about 10 hours total, and they are quite dry. We ate them plain, with a kalamata/mushroom pate I made, and I crushed them on my salad for lunch. I have no idea how I ever got along without your recipes. Thank you. I wish I could post a photo of them. Have you considered adding this option?

I have just put these in my dehydrator! Cross your toes! I used Brazil nuts instead of almonds, upped the Flax to 4Tbs, added 3Tbs of hemp hearts, added 1/2 cup of spinach and a good handful of cilantro. The paste tasted amazing! The kids are anxiously awaiting the crackers!

When the paste tastes amazing you know you're off to a great start. Or should I say, you know you're on fyre :)

Hope they turned out to your (and your little ones') liking!
