The recipe is really simple – just a few ingredients.
Flax & Carrot Crackers

Yield about 24 crackers
2 1/2 cups flaxseeds
One cup carrot juice
One cup carrot pulp
One half teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 teaspoon salt

1 – Soak the flaxseeds in pure water for eight hours.

2 – When the flaxseeds are done soaking, don’t rinse them. Just put them in a large mixing bowl and add the rest of the ingredients. They will be very gooey. This is normal.

3 – Mix well with your hands or a big wooden spoon.

4 – Prepare three dehydrator trays with the grid and a teflex sheet on top.

5 – Spread 2 cups of the mixture on each Teflex sheet with an offset spatula.

6 – Once the mixture is spread evenly on the teflex sheet, score the crackers with your offset spatula. (see video)

7- Score the square in half and then in half again. Turn the sheet 90° and repeat until you get the size cracker you want.

8 – Put them in the dehydrator on 105° for 12 hours.

9 – After 12 hours, flip the crackers over onto the grid peel off the Teflex sheet.

10 – Break or cut the crackers apart and put them back in the dehydrator for another 12 hours or until they are crisp.

If the scoring has disappeared and you can’t break the crackers apart easily, use kitchen shears or a large knife to cut them apart.

These crackers will last a week or so in an airtight container. You can make them crispy again by putting them back in the dehydrator.

If you don’t have a juicer to make carrot juice and pulp, you can usually buy carrot pulp and juice at your local juice bar.

Once you master this recipe, you can make it your own by using other veggies, fruits and or spices. Have fun!
