Cinnamon Flax Meal Crackers :)

Cinnamon Flaxmeal Crackers..

I made some alterations..and these are delicious..taste like cinnamon grahams.


1/2 c. flaxseed meal
1 1/2 c. almond meal
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 Tbs. cinnamon
Splenda to taste
1/2 tsp. salt
4 t. butter
1/2 cup CC milk or half and half


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

Stir in milk/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. I bake them for 15 minutes, then flip
them over so the tops get browned..

Thanks, Carolyn...these sound great! Just out of curiosity though...how much Splenda did you use?

I tried these today...very good! I ended up cutting the recipe in half and decided to try the crackers in the microwave instead. I always do crackers this way and have had good success...partly because I like making small amounts and partly because I don't like waiting! They came out great and really tasted like "grahams"!

Yes, they were! I just spread the "dough" onto parchment, covering it first with plastic wrap and then rolling out with a hand-held rolling pin to about 3/16" of an inch. I remove the plastic wrap carefully, then put in the whole thing and microwaved for one minute at a time. It took 5 minutes and they came out perfectly crunchy! All of the crackers that I have made are crunchy in fact. I guess the microwave just basically "dries" out the mixture. I then let it cool just a touch and then peel off the parchment and break into pieces. I could have scored it for a more "uniform" looking cracker but I just went with "free form". I stored the pieces in the fridge and grabbed some this morning...still crunchy and delicious! Thanks again, Carolyn...really nice recipe!
