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 made your moist bread recipe, your zucchini bread recipe and the flax crackers and all are absolutely delicious! I am so grateful for your site. You are such a source of inspiration to me, especially because myself and my family are very new to eating raw foods and need information and ideas all the time. Thanks again:)
Quick question....
Do you ever make a couple of different batches for the dehydrator at the same time? I wonder if the flavours would overlap, making it inadvisable. I am dehydrating some crackers and would like to make some fruit leathers also. Am I better off doing them separately, or can I dehydrate on separate trays at the same time? I surely do not want my leathers tasting like onions!

Hi Staci, you have been a busy bee!

I tend to always dehydrate savory together and sweet together. (I never do savory and sweet at the same time in the dehydrator, because the savory item always seems to take over everything. And then your fruit leather tastes like garlic!)

is there anything that can be substituted for the sunflower seeds? maybe more nuts? dont have any on hand right now... would a small amount of olive oil work?

Hi Christina, instead ofthe sunflower seeds you could use an equal amount of pumpkin seeds or pecans

(PS: don't use olive oil instead - always substitute a nut with another nut)

I just received my new dehydrator and this was the first recipe I tried. They really are delicious and will be a great snack for pre or post-workouts, hiking, and mid-workday doldrums. I look forward to experimenting with other recipes on your site. Thanks!

Forgive my ignorance but why can't we use baking paper?

Hi Emma, sorry if I made things confusing. "Baking paper" (also called parchment paper) (paper made to be heated in an oven) is perfect and recommmended. However, stay away from "waxed paper" - because it tends to stick to food when heated. 

hope this makes sense!

Thanks for the recipe! I added a few kale leaves to bring some color into the mix. I also used chia seeds and pumpkin seeds in place of walnuts. I'm very excited to try these, as well as a few other recipes I found on your site. Thanks again!!!

I plan on making these soon. The only thing I plan on changing is adding some chia seeds to this as well. Other than that, sounds great!

My dehydrator is arriving tomorrow so I'll be trying these.....The only thing is that I don't have a food processor, but I do have a food mixer and liquidiser, so I'll have to see how they turn out.

hi, I am totally new to this website and found some wonderful recipes!! Thanks a lot for sharing...

Now, any chance I could get a very simple hummus recipe to go with these delicious crackers? (or shall I just try to mix a few stuff together :-S)
