Sesame Flaxseed Crackers

Buying healthy crackers with only ingredients you recognize is expensive and I have a lot of nuts to finish off before they go bad, so I attempted this cracker recipe:

  • 1.75 cups of whole wheat flour (paleo – almond flour could be used; or grind up nuts in a food processor)
  • ~1-2 oz (3-6 tbsp) of cut up almonds (or walnuts, sunflower seeds etc) – i only managed to cut 1 oz
  • 2 oz (6 tbsp) sesame seeds
  • 1 oz flaxseed meal (3 tbsp) – flaxseed seems to be paleo?
  • 0.25 tsp salt
  • 5 oz water
  • 1.5 tbsp honey
  • 1/8 cup of unsweetened apple sauce (recipe calls for 2 tbsp of oil)

Optional in recipe (I didn’t do): 2 tbsp honey+2 tbsp warm water to glaze post baking.

Mix all ingredients in a bowl, kneed for about 3 minutes and let sit overnight (can also just let sit for 20minutes, but apparently overnight gives it more flavor)


Divide into two pieces, roll out into thin layer (Starbucks Double Shot can works really well as a roller) and put on a baking pan lined with parchment paper or a silicon mat (yay I own that!). Rolling this out was okay, but transferring it to the pan was HUGE mess. I no longer needed to cut anything up since it was in pieces =x so next time – I’m rolling this out ON the mat/pan. HA!

Bake at 350 F for 20 minutes, turning half-way through. I think mine didn’t fully cook through so I’d recommend to wait until the crackers are deeply browned. You can glaze right out of oven if you want.

They looked ugly but were pretty tasty! I sadly finished these off in 2-3 days. =x Oops
