Flax Seed Crackers

This was on another board..recipe by Mary..

1/4 c. flax seeds
1/4 c. flaxseed meal
1 1/2 c. almond meal
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
4 t. butter
1/2 cup heavy cream

In a bowl add all ingredients EXCEPT THE CREAM. Mix on low speed until mixture looks like coarse meal.

Stir in cream and mix until mixture forms a soft dough.

Wrap dough and refrigerate for 10 minutes.

Divide dough into quarters. Turn onto a lightly almond floured surface. Roll out very thin to a rectangle 1/16 inch thick. Cut into 2 1/2 inch squares.

Transfer to an ungreased baking sheet..Repeat with the remainder of the dough..Preheat oven to 325..

Bake 20 minutes until crisp and golden.

variations: 1 T. powdered onion soup mix, or 1 cup grated cheddar cheese or 1 T. oregano and 1 cup mozzarella..

Has anyone tried these?????? I think I'll make some this afternoon to get more fiber into my diet..

I made these just like the recipe...except I added some sesame seed on the tops..and they are fabulous..The fiber would be 2 grams for each of 17 pieces..and there would
be 150 calories for each one..Carbs would be about 1.5 for each one.

Mmmm, I bet if you shook that over them BEFORE baking it'd stick better! Kinda like wanna-be cinnamon graham crackers maybe??

Char: I was thinking that the next time I would make them, I would add cinnamon and splenda to the basic recipe..so it would be baked in..but they are still great sprinkled over the top..with a cup of coffee on the side.

Yes..for each cracker because the fat is rather high.

Did you use the whole flax seeds? or just meal? Seems I have read that the seeds don't digest much, so wonder if they would be better with meal which would bring it to 3/4 cup. Also wondering if the cream is necessary, or if one could dilute it, or even use water. Calories, you know!!
What do you think?
Thanks,
Bette

I think I did make it twice..and without the seeds is fine..all meal..Bette, I don't know how the water would work..skim milk might be okay..pour in until it looks like a thick
cookie dough..Let me know.
