Flax Veggie Thins

Recipe: (makes a lot) Print it Here

½ cup pumpkin seeds
1 cup flax seeds (I used half brown and half golden)
½ cup sunflower seeds
½ cup sesame seeds
1 tablespoon tamari
½ cup chopped celery
½ cup chopped carrot
½ cup chopped red pepper
2 cloves of garlic
Pinch black pepper

Procedure:
Soak the pumpkin seeds and set aside.
Rinse the flax, sunflower, and sesame seeds. Combine the flax, sunflower, and sesame seeds together in a large bowl and add enough water to cover. Let mixture sit for about 1 hour. After this time the seeds will have soaked up most of the water, add enough water to make the mixture a batter like consistency. Let mixture sit 5 hours or overnight.

Place the flax, sunflower, and sesame seed mixture in a food processor. Add the chopped celery, carrot, red pepper, garlic, and tamari, and puree until the vegetables are finely chopped.
Mix in drained pumpkin seeds and black pepper.

Spoon 1 tablespoon of the mixture onto dehydrator sheets or parchment lines trays. Spread the mixture fairly thin, the circles should be about 8 cm  or 3 inches in diameter. Dehydrate until crispy,  about  8 - 15 hours depending on temperature and humidity.

  1. Is there a salt free substitute as opposed to using tamari? I am not totally opposed to using tamari but if there is a salt free substitute or even a lower salt sub I would love to know! Thank you.

  3. Hello! I'm kind of hard pressed to think of a viable substitution. The flax seeds are a great binder and help to keep the mix together. You could try another binder in a smaller amount ( like a tbsp or so) such as chia or psyllium. Sorry that I'm not much help. Or you could always just sub the flax with more seeds, but it might make for a super crumbly cracker.

  4. Hello Gabriella,
    Thank you so much! I'm so happy you liked them and hope your raw food diet is going well 🙂

  5. Hi Sophie, Not sure if the last comment posted. Do you have an alternative to flax seeds. I would love to make these crackers but cannot eat flax for 3 months. Thank you!

  6. Hi Sophie,
    This was delicious! I never would have thought that this will be enough for dinner but we are still full from it. This was day 2 being on a raw food diet. Gabriella

  12. No problem! I have used my oven many times to dehydrate goodies. Simply turn down the temperature as low as it will go (around 200 or so) and use something to prop the door open with, just a crack (I use a tea towel, but you have to make sure it doesn't touch the element). The crackers will require less time than in the dehydrator. I'm not sure how long, as it will depend on your climate and how much water you add. It's best to check often. Best of luck!

  14. Sounds delicious..... but I don't have a dehydrator yet. Is there a way of drying them out in the oven? If so how long for and at what temperature? Thank you 🙂
