Flax and sesame seeds are two of the healthiest seeds you can eat. Loaded with phytonutrients your body will thank you for them. Try to use organic seeds. Flax seeds can get rancid so if you buy from bulk bins buy them from a whole foods store, food co-op or source where you know there is a lot of turnover. Keep them refrigerated.

You can eat these raw crackers along with raw soups or green salads. You can spread almond butter and/or raw honey on them. You can spread guacamole, pate or pesto on them and pile on avocado slices, tomato slices, sliced red onion and sliced raw crimini mushrooms and also top with another cracker if you like.

It’s hard to fail when you make these raw vegan crackers. If you add too much liquid, the liquid will eventually evaporate in the dehydrator.

Here is the raw recipe-

Ingredients: golden or brown flax seeds, sesame seeds, garlic cloves, sun-dried sea salt

How To Make Raw Sesame Seed Flax Seed Crackers
2 cups flax seeds – brown or golden
2 cups sesame seeds (1 cup will be ground up)
1-2 cloves of garlic
1-2 teaspoons of sun-dried sea salt
Optional- 3 tsp. Italian seasoning or 3 tsp. Caraway seeds or 4 pitted organic dates

First soak the flax seeds in 4 cups of pure filtered water for 15 or 20 minutes or so until most of the water is soaked up. Now in a food processor or coffee grinder grind 1 cup sesame seeds until fine. Set this aside in a large bowl. Add any of the optional ingredients above or experiment with other spices.

Now in the food processor bowl put in some of the soaked flax seeds and add 1 or 2 garlic cloves to it and grind up. This will need several additions of the raw flaxseed- water mixture.

You may need to add a little more water as you go along to help grind it. The mixture does not need to be smooth. The seeds should be well broken up though.

Remove the flax seed mixture and put in the bowl with the golden ground sesame seeds, whole sesame seeds and sea salt and mix thoroughly. Next spread the mixture in a thin layer on non-stick sheets that come with your dehydrator. Use a pizza cutter and cut into 16 squares.

Dehydrate at 98-100 degrees for about 24 hours; turn over half way through by placing another tray on top and flipping over onto a clean non-stick sheet. Retrace your cut lines with the cutter. Dehydrate until crispy or a little softer if you prefer. Refrigerate in airtight jars.

This is just one of many different types of vegan raw flax seed crackers you can make. There are many other free raw food diet recipes that are easy to make too.
