Flax Crackers

So I wanted to try making some flax crackers to go along with the hummus I made. I used my new food processor to make these & I felt like a new woman! I seriously did... :D

I like them but would make sure I spread the mixture out a little thinner next time so all of the crackers end up with a nice crunch. Some of them were slightly soft but tasted good. Once again, another hit with my son too!

They were super portable & traveled really well for our dinner date as a family. I added a little bit more salt to this recipe, as I thought ours could have used more. You can substitute just about any type of seeds or seasonings for the ones listed. Use whatever you have and let your imagination create some awesome combos!

If you're a bit of a salty, crunchy addict (like my hubby), you'll likely enjoy these crackers!

Flax Crackers

1 cup ground flax seeds
1/4 cup coarsely chopped pumpkin seeds
1/4 cup coarsely chopped sesame seeds (I used sunflower seeds since I was out of sesame seeds) 
3/4 cup water
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon salt

1. Preheat oven to 350.
2. Put any ingrients that need chopped into a food processor & blend until ground. 
3. Add remaining ingredients to the food processor & pulse until combined. 
4. On a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, use your hands or a rolling pin to spread the mixture about 1/4 inch thick. If you get your hands or the rolling pin wet with a little bit of water, it makes the spreading easier. 
5. Score into squares so they are easier to break after baking.
6. Bake for 30-35 minutes until golden brown.

Have you taken on the challenge to move a little more this week? We're off to a pretty good start and I'm looking forward to some fun plans over the next few days!
