Cinnamon Raisin Flax Crackers

I use flax seeds all the time to make dehydrated snacks and breads. When the people over at FlaxMatters offered to send me some of their fabulous Organic Whole Golden Flax Seeds I jumped at the chance to try them out. They were gorgeous in color and ended up tasting great! Thank you so much FlaxMatters!!

I knew when I saw the flax seeds that I wanted to make something special. These Cinnamon Raisin Flax Crackers were delicious, chewy and really amazing! I have always loved raisin bread and these were the raw version of that. The bananas in the mixture made them chewy and the raisins made them so sweet, so good! When I soaked the flax seeds they became gelatinous, very similar to chia seeds. I love the gels that these seeds make!

Cinnamon Raisin Flax Crackers

Recipe adapted from Brigitte Mars
Makes about 2 -3 dozen crackers

Ingredients:
2 C flax seeds
4 C water
1 1/2 C raisins + 1 1/2 C raisins
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
2 bananas, peeled
1 tsp. sea salt

Preparation:
Soak the seeds in the water for about 2 hours, and do not strain. Set aside 1/4 of the flax seeds and then combine the rest of the flax seeds and all ingredients in a food processor until smooth, stirring in the additional 1 1/2 C raisins and the set aside flax seeds by hand. Spread the mixture onto three solid dehydrator sheets. Dehydrate for 4 hours at 110 degrees. Remove the dehydrator sheets and flip the crackers onto mesh sheets.  Score the crackers and continue dehydrating until that side is dry around 6-10 more hours.  When dry, the crackers will keep for several weeks in an air-tight container.

    ooh awesome! you can use flax oil in so many dishes, probably the easiest being as part of your salad dressing.

    Okay, so these crackers AREN’T going to get crispy like the recipe on the Purely Delicious website says? Mine are dry but more like a leather than a cracker (ie: not crispy at all). I’ll go rescue them from the dehydrator before I kill them!
