  1. ¼ cup / 42 g whole flaxseeds
  2. ½ cup /120 ml warm water

  4. 2 cups / 280 g almonds
  5. 2 Tbsp. / 4 g fresh or 1 Tbsp. / 2½ g dried rosemary

    7. Bake at the above temperature for 20 minutes, or for “raw” crackers, at 115ºF / 45ºC for 1-2 hours (with the oven door slightly ajar) until golden.

  1. These crackers are AMAZING! I also added an organic egg and cracked pepper. I rolled the dough out on parchment paper, using olive oil on my rolling pin to prevent sticking. Cut the squares with a pizza wheel and topped with a hint of Johnny Salt (Costco) and fresh parmesan. DELICIOUS! Even though the egg added 80 calories to the overall calorie count, it also added protein and Omega 3s.
