Raw Sesame and Flax Crackers

As we move into the holidays, I love making raw food that not only satisfies your every day needs but will also look great on a holiday table. These raw, flax crackers are gluten free and incorporate black sesame seeds for a fun accent. The black sesame seeds add protein and zinc, which are important ingredients to your diet. I used raw, organic oat flour in these. It gives a great flavor and also texture. Plus all the health giving benefits of oats! Not all oat flour is raw. You can find it through Sun Rise Flour Mill.

    you could use any non gluten flour I think. The goo from soaking the flax holds it together and makes it spreadable. This base can be added to to create a bunch of different flavor combos

    I have made these without the sesame seeds and grinded the gluten free oats into flour in a magic bullet or living well blender they came out great slow dehydrated them 145 degrees 5 hours

      Just a note, unless you turn your dehydrator down after the first 45 minutes, the food temp will increase too much to still be considered raw. You have to keep the food temp under 116.

    Could I use buckwheat flour from groats in place of oat flour? I only have regular oat flour in the house, and my son is gluten free- including oats. Thanks!

    Most oats that are raw are not certified gluten-free. I have used certified gluten-free oats to make a flour. It works fine in a high speed blender.

    Hi Susan,
    I can’t wait to make these….and eat them! Can I make my own raw oat flour by putting oats in my food processor?

      Honestly, no. You won’t be able to get the fine, fluffy texture you need. You can in a coffee grinder but it will require a little commitment as the batches will be small.
