Raw Sun Dried Tomato Olive Crackers

I have been having a rough re-entry back to Minnesota after a week with my daughters in Colorado. It isn’t that Minneapolis is a bad place, it is stunning. And a city that is very cosmopolitan. The problem is that my daughters are not here. I still think there should be a law that kids can’t move more than 100 miles away from their parents. But I understand that they are pursuing their dreams, and that makes me happy.



That said, I must admit, I was really glad to get back to my kitchen and creating more recipes. Eating was a little more difficult this trip. I defaulted to a lot of fruit and fresh veggies. But I missed my raw food creations. On the other hand, I did get inspired. My oldest and I ate out a few times. We had some very good food, it just wasn’t raw. And true to form, I was constantly thinking, I can do this raw!

The first thing I got started on was a raw food recipe for some savory crackers. I love having crackers in the pantry. They replace bread for me in many ways. You can stack them with veggies, or top them with a quick dip. They are a wonderfully versatile item to always have on hand. These crackers have a healthy walnut base mixed with sun-dried tomatoes and olives! A touch of oregano and thyme complete the picture. This recipe is 100% raw and gluten free.

I will post the recipe for the macadamia cheese spread later this week!

Which Flax Seeds to Use

I always use golden flax seeds because of the mild taste. Measure after grinding.

    Very, very flavorful. Will be making these again. Too mad it only makes one sheet 🙁

    Where does the water go? It’s in the ingredients and then it disappears

      Hi, Stef, It is mixed with the flax seed before adding. Cheers!

    Can I leave the olives out or change it with something else?

    • Susan wrote on April 7, 2015

      Hi, Kim, You can leave them out. You could try capers. Cheers!

    Hi Susan,

    they look so good, I would like to give a try. I don’t own a dehydrator, do you have any idea what happens if I put them on a oven at 50C ? Can I get a similar result? Probably the crackers won’t be raw anymore.

    thank you for your reply.

      Hi, Ethel, I write about this on the FAQ page. You can find the link at the top. Cheers!
