If anyone has made these, how long can you store them for, and how do you store yours? I made them yesterday, and I have them in a ziploc bag.
Thanks in advance

Flax Seed Crackers
1 cup flax seed meal
1/3 grated parmesan cheese
1 1/2 t garlic powder
1/2 t salt
1/2 cup water

-Mix & spoon onto sheet pan using a silicone mat, or parchment paper...
-Cover with wax paper & even out to 1/8"....
-Remove wax paper
Bake 15-18 minutes at 400*

I made a similar microwave version once and wasn't terribly impressed with them.



MICROWAVE FLAX CRACKERS
2 tablespoons flax meal
1 tablespoon sesame seeds
1/2 teaspoon Seasoning Salt
1 tablespoon parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon water

Mix all of the ingredients in a small bowl until dough forms. On a piece of parchment paper, shape the dough into 6-8 thin circles. Place the parchment in microwave and cook on HIGH about 1 minute, checking after about 40 seconds so they don't burn.

Makes 1 serving

Although these do have an interesting crunch, they don't taste very good and have a tendency to burn in spots. The dough is very crumbly and sticky and almost impossible to shape. I won't bother making these again.

Thank you, Linda Sue

The recipe I used, they came out like tiny crackers, I cut them in the size of Wheat-thins.....I think I needed to leave them bake a little longer for added crunch.....all and all, with a tiny amount of cream cheese, or SF jam spread on the top of them, the taste was okay for me....their high in fiber, and it makes a quick simple snack in place of pork rinds....I don't eat many of them, they do satisfy me when I need to graze

They've been in the ziploc bag for two days now, and I just went and ate one of them this morning, they still taste fresh....but I think the next time I make them, I'm going to lighten up on the garlic powder.....

My next project will be to learn how to upload a picture here.....

Thanks again

I wouldn't store them in a ziploc bag. They're not airtight like Tupperware, etc.

I have found the recipes that use water rather than egg white stay crisp and keep longer. FYI
