Sesame and Herb Crackers

Sesame Crackers
Happy Easter everyone!!
Happy Birthday Annette!!!
I scored at Big Lots today.
I found Bob's Old Red Mill Golden Flax Meal (16 oz) for $4.00 and Bob's Old Red Mill Flax Meal ( 32oz) for $5.00. I also picked up a couple cans of coconut milk for $1 each.
So today I made crackers using the flax I got at Big Lots.
Scored at Big Lots

Crackers are super easy to make and they take just a few minutes to mix up, roll out, cut into squares with a pizza cutter and pop in the oven and bake 12 to 15 minutes.

Herb Crackers

1 cup flax seed meal
2 cups Almond Meal/Flour
2 Eggs
2 Tbls Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 Tsp Cumin
2 Tsp Garlic Powder
2 Tsp Onion Powder
1 Tsp Rosemary*
1 Tsp Thyme*
2 Tsp Salt
2 Tsp Pepper

  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. In large mixing bowl, combine almond flour, flax meal and spices.
  3. Whisk eggs and pour over flour mixture.
  4. Add in olive oil.
  5. Stir all ingredients together until it forms a dough.
  6. Roll dough into a large ball and place on a parchment lined baking sheet.
  7. Cover dough with another sheet of parchment paper.
  8. Using a rolling pin, roll out into a 1/4 inch thick layer.
  9. Use a pizza cutter to cut dough into 1 to 2 inch squares.
  10. Bake crackers for 15 minutes.
  11. Let cool.
  12. Store in zip lock bag once crackers are completely cooled.
* Original recipe called for 2 Tsp Oregano. I couldn't find my oregano so I subbed in the Rosemary and Thyme. 

Sesame Crackers
1 Cup Flax Meal
2 Cups Almond Flour/Meal
1 1/2 Tsp Celtic Sea Salt
1 Cup Sesame Seeds (I used black and white sesames seeds)
2 Tbls 21 Seasoning Salute (I got at Trader Joes)
2 Eggs, Whisked until frothy
2 Tbls Extra Virgin Olive Oil

  1. In large bowl, stir flax meal, almond flour, salt, sesame seeds, eggs and oil until well blended.
  2. Separate dough into two halves.
  3. Form each into a ball and place between two sheets of parchment paper and use a rolling pin to roll out each ball to 1/8 to 1/4 inch thick.
  4. Place parchment paper on baking sheet and use a pizza cutter to cut 2 inch squares.
  5. Place in 350 degree oven for 10 to 12 minutes.
  6. Cook completely.
  7. Store in zip lock bag.
The original recipe came from Elana's Pantry. I changed it up some. Since I scored on the Flax Meal, I thought it would be fun to toss some into these crackers, Worked nicely. 

Flax is a great source of fiber and is rich in Omega 3's. 

These savory crackers are full of good wholesome ingredients. I use these as an alternative to corn chips and potato chips and they go great with homemade guacamole and salsa. They are also great with some almond butter slathered on.
So with a little planning you can keep these savory crackers on hand too.
