I’ve been a bit hesitant to post a recipe for flax crackers because it’s they’re pretty simple, but after publishing an article on balancing omega-3 fatty acids on a vegan keto diet the other day, I’ve actually gotten a few requests to do so. This site is 50% recipes I decided to come up with on a whim, and 50% recipes you guys request that I make, so here we are with a recipe for vegan keto flax crackers.
Flax crackers are not only a great, low carb (like, super low carb) alternative to regular crackers, but they also fill that need for chips. Basically, whenever you want something kind of salty and crunchy that is otherwise difficult to approximate on a vegan keto or low carb vegan diet. They’re also easily adaptable to many different flavor profiles (basically all flavor profiles), as well as nut free and soy free.
While the ingredients list is simple, there are actually a few things of note about making this recipe, so I strongly suggest reading the “notes” section below, as it will make your life so much easier!
Notes on Making Vegan Keto Flax Crackers
- Measuring flax by volume is great, but you’ll get better results by using a kitchen scale, as flax seeds tend to change in volume when you grind them, and this can get confusing.
- The dough that forms will be dense and a little sticky, and is a huge pain to spread out. Sorry. 🙁
- I find that using a silicon baking mat is the easiest way to make sure these spread evenly, cook evenly, and can be removed from the pan easily. Parchment paper works, too but is way more difficult to spread this dough on.
- These need to be scored before going into the oven so that you can break them apart easier. I also find this helps them cook more evenly.
- I added 2 tsp of curry powder to these, and now my entire kitchen smells incredible. I would strongly suggest doing the same.
- 1 tsp of garlic powder, and 1 tsp of cayenne would also be delicious.
- Basically, any combo of spices will work for this (or you could just eat them plain!)
- Yes, that is pesto in the picture. I love pesto.
