flummoxed about FLAX-- Tastee Tuesday

Flax crackers

  • 1 cup flax seed meal
  • 1/3 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1 and 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt [if you are using regular chicken stock, omit this salt]
  • 1/2 cup water or fat low sodium free chicken stock or regular chicken stock


Heat oven to 400 F.

1) Mix all ingredients together.

2) Spoon onto 9x13 sheet pan lined with greased parchment paper.

3) Cover the mixture with a piece of parchment or waxed paper. Even out the mixture to about 1/8 inch. I find a straight edge, like a ruler, works well, though you can use a rolling pin. The important thing is to keep the dough evenly distributed so that everything bakes equally. 
4) Bake until the center is no longer soft, about 15-18 minutes. If it starts to get more than a little brown around the edges, remove from oven. Let cool completely - it will continue to crisp up.

5) Break into pieces.

The whole recipe is 6 grams of effective carbohydrate plus 35 grams of fiber.

 Why flax?  Well because:

No momma, I hate these. I really hate them. I would rather have that yummy yogurt .

Ohhhhh THAT yogurt! {momma's note... it has 1 tsp of toasted flax seeds added to it}

I am picky. Once you lick the cheese off, they are just ok. Now, The Wendy loves them, but then The Wendy loves everything.

We'll have to try these. Kirby has such dry skin I put flax meal in so many of his treats but these sound so simple and easy!
