Going places I’ve never gone before. I will share with you along my journey!
As I mentioned in some of my earlier posts, I have been trying to incorporate more “live foods” (raw) into my diet. I lost a few pounds a few years ago when I went from eating a S.A.D (Standard American Diet) to eating about 90% raw. I didn’t get into the more time-consuming or creative aspect of it. I basically had lots of salads, smoothies, and fresh fruits!
Why raw crackers? Well, for me, it’s the crunch addiction! I know that if I can still have things that I enjoy in my diet, it makes changing my way of eating that much easier for me. If I deprive myself of thing my body craves, I fall of the wagon. Sometimes it’s hard to get back up. That’s why I know for me, for my body, I know that I likely would not ever do 100% raw. Also soaking raw flax and dehydrating at 115 degrees, I know that I’m consuming something live, something raw.
Enough rambling and onto the recipe!
Raw Flax Crackers
Raw Flax Crackers (Raw/GF/Veg/Vegan)
2 C Flax Seed
2 C Water
1/2 Red Pepper
1 T Garlic Powder
3/4 T Onion Powder
1/4 T Sea Salt
Soak flax seed in water for 2-3 hours. It will form a ‘gel-like’ consistency.
Process jalapeno and red pepper til minced.
Measure out garlic & onion powder, and sea salt. Add to minced peppers and add all to gelled flax-seed. Mix til well combined.
Spread as thin as you can get it on dehydrator trays or parchment paper and dehydrate at 115 degrees for 8 hours or until dry and crispy. Flip over after about 4 hours.
Store in an airtight container. Should keep for about 5 – 7 days.
This recipe is a little on the mild side, if you like really spicy, really hot foods, try adding another jalapeno or a habanero pepper. For an interesting variation you could also substitute the onion/garlic powder for 2 T of taco seasoning or Chili powder!If you change it up, let me know how it is!
