Healthy Wheat-Free Crispy Crackers

You can find many variations of these crackers on the internet, as folks adapt it to their tastes. As far as low-carb eating goes, this is a pure beauty. They are:

  • sugar-, wheat-, grain-, and gluten-free;
  • rich in fiber, fat, and protein;
  • lend itself perfectly to spread your butter on;
  • fit in Paleo, Keto, and LCHF;
  • crispy and chewy at the same time;
  • very simple to make, as they require no specific appliances.

As far as I could track it (and I am ready to stand corrected), it appeared first in The Real Meal Revolution by Tim Noakes. Below is my adaptation; I have marked the changes I made to the original, so if you want a less flavored version, you can always fall back on the more plain variation. The quantities are adjusted for my 11″ x 14″ baking tray. Also, these are on a salty side; decrease salt if prefer less of it.

  1. Выглядит очень вкусно, спасибо за рецепт, завтра же сделаю.
    Один вопрос: скажите, а если не добавлять семена льна, получатся ли крекеры или семена льна скрепляют все тесто?

    • It looks very tasty, thanks for the recipe, tomorrow I’ll do it.
      One question: Tell me, will it work without flax seeds, or they are needed to bind the dough?

      Zinaida, I’ve never tried such variation. I think it’s a necessary component but I am ready to be surprised. If you decide to experiment, let me know how that worked out 🙂

  2. Спасибо за ответ.
    Скажите, пожалуйста, правильно ли я понимаю, что семена льна нужно размолоть? А если их положить цельными неразмолотыми, получатся ли крекеры?

    • “Thanks for the answer.
      Tell me, please, do I understand correctly that flax seeds need to be ground? And if they are put whole, will crackers still come out well?”

      Yes, they need to be ground. Whole seeds won’t work. I just buy ground flax seeds, I have no use for the whole

  3. I have made these about 5x now with whole flax seed and ground phyllium husk and they turn out perfectly – I love this recipe for its never fail crunchiness. I don’t even need to crisp them under the broiler as they are already crispy out of the oven.

I would love to hear your opinion - Please Leave a Reply!
