Main ingredients and substitutions

Ground flaxseed adds a nutty flavor and plenty of omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants, and fiber to these delicious crackers. You can purchase flaxseed that is already ground or grind whole flaxseed yourself using a blender, food processor, or spice grinder.

This flaxseed crackers recipe calls for whole wheat flour. You can substitute all purpose flour if you prefer.

Extra virgin olive oil adds richness to these crackers and improves their texture. You can substitute avocado oil or any other neutral oil you prefer.

A small amount of corn starch gives gives these crackers a satisfying, crispy texture. I like to use a non-GMO, organic variety. You can omit the corn starch if you prefer but the texture won’t be quite as crispy.

Garlic powder adds a savory layer of flavor to the crackers. You can omit it or substitute onion powder if you prefer.

How to make them

Start by preheating the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Add the ground flaxseed, whole wheat flour, cornstarch, salt, and garlic powder to a mixing bowl, then mix well.
