If you're in the mood to experiment with something new in the kitchen, Bob's Red Mill recipes always have something fun in store and are a great resource for creative ideas. On the back of the new packaging for Bob's Whole Ground Flaxseed Meal there is a recipe for "everything" crackers. The first time I made these I followed the recipe exactly on the back and they were fun, but not a big hit. The second time I made them I added crushed rosemary and black pepper to add a little dimension to it's otherwise bland-ish flavor and I think the family and I liked them a little better the second time around and even better with a slice of cheese or almond butter and fruit on top. But even still they aren't A-mazing. We'll just say they're a funny little cracker. Also, this is a great recipe to do with little helpers. There aren't a lot of ingredients and it's so simple which means minimal mess. Yay!
Can I also just say that I know most of my photos are kinda lame and not really blog-worthy, but taking fancy photos aren't really at of the top of my to-dos currently, so bear with me on that one.
Original Bob's Red Mill Flaxseed Everything Crackers Recipe:
2 Cups Flaxseed Meal
1/2 tsp Salt
1/4 tsp Garlic Powder
1/4 tsp Onion Powder
1/2 tsp Poppy Seeds
1 tsp Sesame Seeds
1 cup Water
Preheat oven to 400 F .Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside. In a large bowl combine all dry ingredients. Add water and mix until a dough forms. Spread onto the prepared baking sheet and flatten to 1/8 inch thickness. Cut into 1 1/2 inch squares and bake until crisp and the edges are browned about 25-30 mins. Let cool completely before dividing and serving.
The above mentioned "dough" would be more accurately called paste. It is sticky and will require parchment paper on top as well as bottom if you plan on using a rolling pin to smooth it out. Get it as thin as you can when rolling it out, maybe even thinner than 1/8 inch. My center crackers never got crispy on both tries even with them being 1/8 inch thick. Experiment with added flavors. I added 1 tsp crushed rosemary and several grinds of fresh cracked pepper. Try serving with almond butter and fruit- it makes a yummy breakfast and snack.
