    I love this recipe! I haven’t tried making raw crackers yet, and all of the recipes I’ve found so far have intimidated me, but this one looks very easy, hence the name, huh? 😉

    Do you put everything in the food processor with water and let soak together over night or just the flax seeds?

      I like everything easy… so I put it all in the food processor… 😉

      Sarah – let me explain some more. First soak the flax seeds for a few hours or overnight, then put everything in the food processor together with the carrots etc. The flax seeds will soak up the water, so it will have a pudding like consistency after a few hours… everything goes into the food processor – when soaked, you won’t have any water to drain from flax seeds. Hope this makes sense.

        Yes it does! I can’t wait to try this. I will let you know how it goes. Thanks for the clarification!

    How long does it normally take on the dehydrator? I’m really wondering when they should be flipped?


    • Mama In The Kitchen August 2, 2011 at 10:13 am #

      Hi Jennifer, if you dehydrate on maximum (150F) for 2 hours, I’d flip it then and then decrease the temperature to 105F until it is dry – maybe about 4 – 6 hours? If you don’t plan to dehydrate at a high temperature, I’d say if you start it in the morning at 105F, after around 6 hours, you could flip it and dehydrate till it is all dry – another 6 hours. NOTE – when you flip it, take it out of the texflex sheet and simply place on the screens to quicken dehydration. Hope this makes sense. I don’t tend to time dehydration – I just check periodically.

    Any ideas on what to replace the flax seeds with. I cannot not eat Flax seeds – period. Very bad reaction to them.

      Hi Wendy, I’ll have to get back to you on this. You can make crackers with vegetables and grains… but I don’t have a recipe to share right now, but it is something I can work on for you. I would think sunflower seeds would also be an alternative, but it won’t gel up like flax. Let’s see what I can come up with. I’ll let you know. Thanks for visiting and commenting!

        You can always use Chia Seeds. They will gel up like flax.

        Thank you Karina! Will try this!

    How many dehydrator trays to you use for this recipe? I wasn’t sure how thick it was supposed to be spread out.

    • Mama In The Kitchen November 3, 2011 at 3:38 am #

      Hi Elizabeth, maybe 2 or 3, depending on how thick you make them. We prefer ours thinner and crispier, so I use 3 trays. I have friends who prefer their crackers thicker.

    I have got ground flax seeds, do I still need to soak them?


    • Mama In The Kitchen May 7, 2012 at 8:24 am #

      No need to soak them… Just add the water until they have a good consistency.
