Flaxseed Crackers

These flaxseed crackers tast wonderfully light and crispy are quick to prepare.

They are also very healthy, as flaxseeds have the very good omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acid ratio of 1:4 and contain vitamin E and the phytonutrient lignans.

The ideal time to prepare these delicious flaxseed crackers is in the summer. In peak tomato harvest season, there really is an abundance of ripe tomatoes – and tomatoes are the key ingredient here!



  • 10 tomatoes (about 2 lbs)
  • 2 bell pepper
  • 1 cup flaxseed
  • 1 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon paprika and 1 pinch cayenne
  • 1 handful basil, finely chopped


  1. Soak flaxseed and sunflower seeds separately in plenty of fresh water overnight. Drain and rinse in the morning and let germinate in a colander for another day if desired.
  2. Puree tomatoes and peppers in a food processor, add seeds, herbs and spices and mix again briefly.
  3. Season to taste. Spread out on 3–4 dehydrating foils and dry in the dehydrator. Turn after about 7 hours and continue drying until they’re really crispy.
  4. When the weather is nice, these crackers can also be dried outside in the fresh air, in the sun or shade, depending on the temperature.
