  • Author: Chris Dalziel


A crisp and spicy flax cracker, perfect for cheese and wine.



  • 2 cups of w/w flour, freshly ground
  • 1 cup of flax seed, freshly ground
  • 1/2 cup of whole flax seed
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp. cayenne powder
  • 3/4 cup. water or enough to make a stiff dough — like a noodle dough


  • Mix all ingredients together, except water until well mixed and mixture resembles a coarse meal.
  • Make a well in the centre and add water.
  • Mix until mixture forms a firm ball, adding water 1 tsp at a time to get the dough the right consistency.
  • Knead on well floured surface for five minutes until dough is smooth and satiny.
  • Cover dough with plastic wrap and allow to rest for 15 minutes.
  • Divide dough into 4 portions.
  • Knead each portion separately and roll very thin.
  • Cut with round cookie cutters.
  • Pierce each cookie with a fork in at least 4 places.
  • Bake on ungreased cookie sheet for 15 minutes in 350F, until golden brown.
  • Cool in a basket lined with a linen towel.
  • Store in an air-tight container once cool, to keep them crisp.
