So roll up your sleeves and let’s get baking!
Here are some of the many reasons why you’ll fall in love with this flax seed crackers recipes:

- It tastes incredible—like trail mix in cracker form!
Let me walk you through how to make this flax seed crackers recipe. You’ll be surprised at how simple it is!
A combo of nuts and seeds. Flaxseeds and chia seeds are the secret to binding the cracker ingredients together! They’re also both considered superfoods, as they’re loaded with omega-3 fatty acids and a handful of other goodies.
We’ll toss in a few other low carb nuts: pumpkin seeds, almonds, and pecans, for flavor, variety, and bulk.
Herbs. To amp up the flavor of our crackers.
Olive oil. Again, another flavor enhancer!
Tools To Make
There are a few things you’ll need to make this flax seed crackers recipe:
- Food processor. To breakdown the nuts/seeds.
- Parchment paper. The “dough” will be sticky, so we’ll roll it between 2 sheets of parchment.
- Rolling pin. The best tool to press these into a flat and even surface.
- Baking sheet. To cook ’em!
Because these nut crackers can be crushed easily, plastic bags aren’t the best for storing them. I’d recommend using a plastic container instead.
Can You Freeze Them?
You can freeze these crackers!
Grab a plastic bag and put all the crackers in it. Remove as much of the air as possible, then place the bag in a freezer-safe container to prevent them from crumbling too quickly.
You might be wondering what else can I do with this recipe? Well, here are a few healthy recipes suggestions:
- Try adding some grated low carb cheese such as parmesan! Not only will this help to bind the ingredients, but parmesan also gets super crispy when baked! (Which is why parmesan crisps are another low carb fave).
- Make a sweet version. Swap olive oil for avocado or coconut, and toss in your favorite sweetener. Add a dash of cinnamon and you’ve got super crispy low carb graham crackers.
- Add in a dash of herbs or garlic powder to suit any cravings.

Crave the salty stuff?? Who doesn’t! Here are a few of our favorite crispy, crunchy, easy appetizers:
Flax Seed CrackersPrint Recipe Pin Recipe
- 1/2 Cup Pecans
- 1/2 Cup Almonds
- 1/2 Cup Flax Seeds whole
- 1/2 Cup Chia Seeds
- 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
- 1 Cup Water
- 1 Teaspoon Salt
- Fresh herbs optional. Such as rosemary or thyme.
- Prep. Preheat oven to 275 F.
- Nuts. Add pecans (1/2 cup), almonds (1/2 cup), flax seeds (1/2 cup), and chia seeds (1/2 cup) to a food processor. Pulse ingredients together using 1-second intervals, until they break down into grain-sized pieces.
- Everything else. Evenly distribute water (1 cup) and olive oil (2 tablespoons) over the ingredients in the food processor. Sprinkle in salt (1 teaspoon) and fresh herbs if using. Pulse ingredients together a few times, then set aside for 10 minutes (this allows the chia seeds to absorb the liquid). Turn the processor on and allow the ingredients to form into a ball.
- Shape. Place 1/2 the dough on a sheet of parchment paper. Place a second sheet of parchment paper over the dough. Use a rolling pin to roll the dough into a 1/4" thick, even layer. Repeat with the other half of the dough.
- Bake. Place each sheet of dough on a separate baking sheet. Bake in preheated oven for 75-90 minutes (varies depending on how thick the crackers are) -- you’ll know the crackers are done when they’re golden brown around the edges, and the center is completely dry.
- Break apart. Once crackers have cooled, break apart into pieces. If you'd prefer square crackers, cut them as soon as they come out of the oven (before they have time to harden). Enjoy!
