Why it’s delicious
You know you are on to a winner when Mahei (my husband) and I keep hiding these crackers from each other so that they will last longer! They are light, crisp, easy to make and are the perfect vehicle for grass-fed butter, good quality cheese, avocado, tomato or for nibbling on their own.

Hints, Tips + Tricks
This recipe calls for Ground wakame. I recommend purchasing a packet of wakame (dried seaweed) from the supermarket or Asian store and grind until it's small enough to sprinkle. I used a coffee/spice grinder to grind mine, but you can also use a food processor or you can chop furiously with a sharp knife until the seaweed is in small fine pieces.
- 110 g (3.9 oz) flaxseed meal or flax meal
- 2 tbsp chia seeds
- 2 tbsp hemp seeds (hearts)
- 1 tsp ground wakame
- 1 tsp mineral salt
- 120 ml (4 FL oz) water
- Preheat your oven at 170C (320F) and line a flat baking sheet with non-stick baking paper.
- Place all the dry ingredients into a mixing bowl and stir together. Add the water and stir well to combine to a soft dough. Allow the mixture to sit for 10 minutes to thicken.
- Place the dough onto a baking sheet and place another large piece of paper over the top of the dough and then using a rolling pin, roll the dough out thinly and evenly till the dough is 2-4 mm thick (⅛ inch)
- Score the dough into crackers with a sharp knife or pizza wheel and bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes, turning the tray halfway through baking to ensure the crackers colour and cook evenly.
- Allow the crackers to cool for 10 minutes on the tray and then break them into their cracker shape and cool completely on a wire rack.
- Store your cooled Flackers in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
