This flax seed crackers recipe contains so many healthy ingredients, you’ll be able to take pride with every bite that you’re taking good care of yourself and your family!
Flax Seeds – Flax seeds have been linked to better digestion and reduced risks of heart disease, diabetes, and cancer. There’s no question why it’s considered a super food, and it’s fairly easy to incorporate into your diet! These crackers make it even easier!
Raw Pecans – Full of healthy fats and antioxidants, pecans aren’t just for pie making! The buttery sweetness of pecans make for a stunning addition to my paleo crackers. Pecans are very filling and also good for regulating blood sugar levels! What’s not to love?!
Almonds – Almonds are always a quick, go-to snack for me! By adding them into these crackers, you get the hearty, nutty flavor along with all the benefits of its Vitamin E, magnesium, and other vital nutrients.
Pumpkin Seeds – An excellent source of potassium, magnesium, and fiber, pumpkin seeds are good for bone, heart, and liver health in addition to helping reduce the risk of diabetes. It’s a yummy solo snack, but even tastier when mixed with these other seeds and nuts!
Chia Seeds – I love how easy it is to sneak chia seeds into your diet. Packed with omega-3 fatty acids, calcium, fiber, and zinc, these tiny seeds are incredibly good for you! Whether it’s in smoothies, yogurt, oatmeal, or baked goods, I can’t get enough!
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, plastic bags aren’t the best for storing them. I’d recommend using a plastic container instead.
When rolling out the dough, you can also experiment with different dough sizes. I like to roll it out to a 1/4 inch thickness, but if you want a studier cracker, feel free to thicken the dough!
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. You can label the bag and stick it in the freezer as is, but you can also put the bag in a freezer safe container to keep it from being crushed.
Freezing the flax seed crackers recipe is a super convenient way to make sure you always have a healthy snack on hand! Just let it sit at room temperature for a few minutes before eating—or enjoy it cold if you’d like!
You might be wondering what else can I do with this recipe? Well, here are a few suggestions:
Can I Make These With Almond Flour?
Although I love almond flour (it’s my favorite low carb flour!), I prefer these flax seed crackers without it! It keeps them crispier, crunchier, and different from other cracker recipes.

Can I Add Cheese To This Recipe?
You can try adding some grated parmesan to this recipe for cheese chips, or, try one of these cheesy low carb crackers instead!
- Fathead crackers are amazing snacks made of mozzarella cheese, almond flour, and cream cheese. You’ll be blown away by its rich and creamy flavor!
- Cheese crackers are made of nothing but cheddar cheese, bacon, and green onions. The cheddar tastes so good, it puts Cheez-Its to shame!
- The same concept as above, but you can make parmesan crisps, yum!
Can I Use Coconut Flour?
Coconut flour is pretty finicky, due to its dry, absorbent nature.
To make coconut flour crackers, you need a lot more moisture than this recipe has, so I’d recommend using a recipe designed specifically for coconut flour.
Can I Add Cinnamon?
To make these more like low carb graham crackers, add a dash of cinnamon!
About one teaspoon should do the trick, but you’re welcome to add more or less depending on your preference. You can also sprinkle cinnamon sugar on top for additional flavoring!
And the spices don’t have to stop there! Add in a dash of herbs or garlic powder to suit any cravings!
Flax Seed Crackers
- 1/2 Cup Pecans
- 1/2 Cup Almonds blanched or regular
- 1/2 Cup Flax Seeds whole
- 1/2 Cup Chia Seeds
- 1 Teaspoon Kosher Salt
- 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
- 1 Cup Water
- 1 Teaspoon Kosher Salt
- Fresh herbs optional! I used 2 sprigs of finely chopped rosemary.
- Preheat oven to 275 F.
- Add pecans, almonds, flax seeds and chia seeds to a food processor.
- “Pulse” ingredients together using 1-second intervals, until they break down into grain-sized pieces.
- Evenly distribute water and olive oil over the ingredients in the food processor. Sprinkle in salt and fresh herbs if using.
- Turn the processor on and allow the ingredients to form into a ball.
- Turn off the food processor and scrape down the sides using a rubber spatula, then process ingredient 1 more time to ensure everything evenly combines.
- 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.
- Place each sheet of dough on a separate baking sheet.
- Bake in preheated oven for 60 minutes -- you’ll know the crackers are done when they’re golden brown around the edges.
- Once crackers have cooled (they will continue to harden as they cool), break the crackers 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!
