Gluten-free cracker recipe

Grain-Free Flax Crackers

  • Author: Meghan Telpner
  • Total Time: 6 hours 5 mins
  • Yield: 30-40 crackers 1x


Delicious grain-free crunchy flax crackers. Perfect to enjoy with your favourite dip.


  • 1 cup flax seeds, soaked 2 hrs (or overnight) in 2-3 cups of water
  • ½ red onion
  • 1 avocado
  • 1/2 bunch cilantro
  • 1 tomato
  • 2 Tbsp lime juice
  • 1 tsp sea salt


  1. Strain flax seeds through a mesh sieve (some liquid will remain as flaxseeds will be thick and goopy – that’s totally okay)
  2. Blend all ingredients together until smooth.
  3. Spread out evenly over 3 or four dehydrator sheets – you can keep it thicker for more of a bread texture and thin for a crispy chip.
  4. Dry for 3 hours at 115, then peel off non-stick sheet and flip over.
  5. Dry for another 3-5 hours until dry and crispy.
  6. Store in an airtight container.


If you live in a humid climate, you may need to dehydrate them briefly just before serving if they have softened up more than you like.
I have never tried this in the oven. If you do, on the oven’s lowest setting, please post a comment and let me know how it works,
