Quinoa and Flax Seed Crackers

A Few Words…

This is a great flavorful cracker that is so easy to make! It’s healthy, full of protein and gluten free.

This is the 2nd batch I made. The first batch was without the flax seeds and although they were delicious, they crumbled when I picked them up. On a side note, I will be using them as a topping on salad.

The flax seeds made the batter a little thicker and the cracker held together nicely. I topped each cracker (before baking) with Trader Joe’s Everything but the Bagel Sesame spice blend, but you can use za’atar, dried herbs, paprika, onion salt – or your own combination!

These crackers are delicious alone, with hummus or with your favorite spread.
