Recipe: The Best Raw Flax Seeds Crackers Recipe

recipe image from remote site

You’d be hard-pressed to find a food higher in fiber -- both soluble and insoluble -- than flax. This fiber is probably mainly responsible for the cholesterol-lowering effects of flax. Fiber in the diet also helps stabilize blood sugar, and, of course, promotes proper functioning of the intestines.

Flax Seed is High in Phytochemicals: Flax seed is high in phytochemicals, including many antioxidants. It is perhaps our best source of lignans, which convert in our intestines to substances that tend to balance female hormones.

For this recipe you will need  a Dehydrator  and Non-Stick Dehydrator Sheets.

Ingredients for main recipe:
2 cups golden flaxseeds
2 cups sunflower seeds
1 cup sliced almonds
1 cup walnuts
Sea salt to taste
Dash of ground coriader
Dash of ground cumin
1/2 cup liquid aminos or soy sauce
