Flax Crackers

Last night I borrowed my mum's dehydrator.  She used to make us home made fruit leather with this dehydrator from the apples and pears from our back yard.  I found a recipe for flax seed crackers on My New Roots and wanted to give them a shot.

2 cups ground flax seed
1/4 cup hemp seeds
1/4 cup chia seeds
2 cups water
dried basil and oregano
1 tablespoon honey
1 teaspoon sea salt

Combine all the ingredients in a bowl.  Allow to become firm and then scoop onto a solid dehydrator sheet and spread thinly.  Cut the flax mixture into cracker shapes and dehaydrate for 5 - 6 hours.  Check periodically and when the crackers become dry on top, flip onto a mesh dehydrating sheet and allow them to become crisp, another 4 - 6 hours.  Store in a sealed container in the fridge.

They are seriously yummy.

I adapted the recipe slightly.  I found the mixture easier to work with after it had hardened slightly.  I was able to spread it more thinly.  And I found the crackers impossible to "flip" onto the mesh sheet so I slid a knife under them and one by one picked them up and flipped them over.  You could add any kind of seasoning you'd like to them.  I was thinking cinnamon and more honey the next time to make them more of a sweet treat.

Swear to God if LW eats these before you come over tomorrow I am going to freak out. Just saying... it's the closest feeling thing to carbs I'm getting this month.
