Flackers Flaxseed crackers!

For those who are looking for a simple snack or a cracker, try Flackers by Doctor in the Kitchen! Only one net carb per serving, made with organic ingredients and raw and Gluten Free too!.. I got my first two boxes at Whole Foods (2 hours away from me), and searched the internet to see where I can get them online. Lo and Behold, Netrition carries them!! They are pricey, but sometimes you just need a cracker! Just spreading the word!

I love these! Use them with chicken/tuna salad or a little peanut butter on the cinnamon raisin ones. One of my faves from netrition.

it's EXTREMELY easy to make these with flax meal, water, and a little salt. they are great made partially of almond meal too. I normally use about half and half... you just mix with water till it's barely wet enough to spread across the bottom of a silicon loaf pan, microwave for a little bit just till the center firms up, pop it out and cut while still warm. I forget the timing since it's been a long time since I did this, but they are nice enough to serve to company. the good part is you only make what you need. then you don't have the temptation of a box sitting around. that is just the sort of thing that might disappear way too fast at my house! *blush*

I had 2 boxes of savory ones, didn't really like them, they are "ok" with peanut butter, kinda gross flavoured eating alone. I ended up eating them during loading phase for this round of hCG, since they are high fat and I wanted to get rid of them. I think I'll just go with Ravenrose's homemade crackers if I really want something like that again.

Hmmm...rethinking. Dipgal, what flavor(s) did you try?

I only tried savory ..everyone has different taste preferences. Good to know I can make them...but I probably wouldn't bother.

Love them. And if you eat a few carbs, the cinnamon current ones are wonderful with almond butter.

Foods Alive also makes a raw sprouted organic flax cracker, plain and lots of flavored. They are ok. I by far prefer the plain flavor. They are expensive, but good to have in a pinch. I checked the ingredients and now make my own. I simply mix 1 cup of flax with about 1 cup of water and let it soak for a hour or more. I add liquid aminos to make up some of the water. If the mix is too watery, I sometimes thicken a bit with ground flax. Estimates are rough, because brown and the lighter colored flax are a bit different, and I am often just mixing the two. Definitely use parchment paper on cookie sheets. If they are still sticky, flip over the parchment paper a bake for a bit on the other side until breakable. You can bake a very low temp or use a dehydrator to keep them "alive" but I usually just bake at higher temp, because it is faster.

I mix in a two cup glass measuring cup, so that is all the needs to be washed, as the parchment paper keeps the measuring cup clean.

I am defintely going to try the microwave version with almond flour that Ravenrose posted!

This was possibly the first thing ever that's flaxseed lowcarb that I did not like. I tried to like them. But I just gagged. I make my own crackers...maybe that's why.

Just got my Netrition order and I did get the savory Flackers. I did not like them at all. They made DH gag. They are already in the trash.

I've tried two flavors of them and I don't like them either.

I've made these many times and I love them, great with sliced cheese:

Sounds interesting. DW has been trying to get me to eat more flax. If I show her this recipe maybe she will make them and I won't have to.
Today is her Forgot a card so I'll give her a recipe for her birthday! Then perhaps take her to Bass Pro Shop.

Tried making some flax crackers today. They are certainly different. I am afraid I could get addicted to them with only a little effort. I put a bit of parmesan cheese, some spices and a bit of garlic in them. The result got a bit overdone around the edges but actually tastes pretty good. I wonder how many of these things you can safely eat?

From the reviews I've read on Flackers in several places, you either love 'em or hate 'em. Doesn't seem much in-between.

I haven't tried them, but did find a cracker on Netrition I LOVE: Smackaroos. 3 nice sized crackers for 1 NC. These are extremely crunchy and have a nice nutty flavor. I like the rye and sesame the best. The plain is the only one I haven't tried and probably won't.

These are sturdy enough to load up tuna salad, or cheeses and meats, or whatever LC toppings sound good to you. Yesterday I had the rye with an excellent liver pate, sliced hard boiled eggs, and a thin slice of onion. YUM.
Had 3, totally satisfying lunch with crunch!

We literally just found these at Whole Foods and, after the Dude got over seeing SEEDS as the basis of a cracker (silly boy!), we love them. They come in an assortment of different flavors, but mostly we use them for tuna and chicken salad when we need variety. They keep well for quite a while, but we've rarely had them around longer than a week.

I actually really enjoy flackers, but also recommend Rawxies if you can find them. They're all nut and seed and come in three super tasty flavors - "Cheezy" Smoked Paprika, Chili Lime, and Chipotle Curry. They're kind of thick, but really tasty!

I tried a few different versions of these a while back. I don't think any flavors were very good but plain ones were hard to find. Making them sounds like a good idea...

I am going to do the same. So easy and a good carrier for spreads and butters.
I try to keep some on hand all the time.
