Raw Flat Breads

For some reason, this post from February of 2009 lost it’s information. After it was brought to my attention, I tried to fix the post to no avail. I decided to recreate the whole post. So, if you have been looking for these recipes on the site…here they are!! This was a recipe from the second month that Rawmazing was published. It was a fun trip down memory lane for me! I love my flax crackers!


flax crackers


When eating a raw food diet, it’s always a good idea to have a selection of flat breads handy. They are fairly quick to make (other than the dehydration time), nutritious, and can be used for many things. Throw some veggies on one for a quick lunch, spread some cashew vegan cheese on another for a quick snack, and use them with raw dips for a quick, fresh treat. They are versatile! On this plate are Onion Sunflower Flat bread, Flax Wheat Berry Flat bread and Spicy Flax Flat bread.

    @ Grace: Your friend’s right. Flax is much more digestible when it’s ground but if you eat a lot of flax in your diet your omega 3 levels can actually get too high. So having some of it just pass through can be good actually, it makes a nice pre-biotic (food for the good flora in your intestines) and gives you some nice, healthy fiber even if it’s nutrients aren’t all absorbed.

    Hi, Susan ~
    When soaking the flax, how much water do we use to soak it in? Do we rinse it before using it?
    Is there a proper ratio on this? For example, maybe two cups water to one cup flax seeds, or whatever would be the correct amount.
    I’m kind of confused on this.
    Thanks you.

    Susan, I’ve made the sunflower flax crackers a couple of times. Love them! Now, if only I can make enough to curb my craving for them! They’re absolutely delicious. I find myself sneaking to the fridge for another tasty bite. 🙂

    Correction for my comment (didn’t proofread first) “I’ve been making raw flax crackers for quite some time……..

    I’ve been making raw flax crackers and bread for quite some using the dehydrator. Most of the time I add buckwheat as well as kale, olive oil, cayenne. A friend who is a chef just brought to my attention that we don’t digest flax and buckwheat or get any of the health benefits unless the flax and buckwheat is ground to some extent. It sounds reasonable. Even if you open up the seeds just by spinning them in a coffee grinder slightly before soaking them may be more beneficial. Would you comment on this please?

    Those are really beautiful. I was eating totally raw several years ago, and I never found what I really liked for a raw cracker, but if they taste anywhere near what they look like………..yum!! I will be trying those recipes! Thank you so much for sharing.

    for some reason, I had gotten away from making crackers & flat breads. I was just thinking today that I should get back to it. Perfect timing – Thanks for sharing!

    I’m new to your blog – found you when I was searching for new inspiring raw recipes. These flat breads couldn’t have come at a better time! I’m leaving for India in a couple of weeks and have been trying to figure out what kinda snacks I can bring with me. These would be perfect! Thanks for another great recipe 🙂
