Hi, Everyone.  I made the flax-seed meal "bread" (from the recipe data base) the other day, and while it was OK, it wasn't really what I wanted.

I need something akin to a "chip" or "cracker".  I am going grain-free (getting my starch from compliant beans and other legumes) and that's the one thing that I am really missing.  I eat a lot of almonds and walnuts as a substitute, but it's not the same as having chips or crackers.

Does anyone have a good recipe for something like this?  I think that the flax-meal bread could probably be modified to give a "cracker" sort of feel to it, but, while I'm a good cook, I'm not familiar enough with baking to make those modifications myself.

Any thoughts or recipes would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

I do ok on amaranth.  It's not technically a grain, I think it's a seed [actually, I'm not certain about this].  I haven't made crackers, but I've made great tortillas from them.  They DO make me gain weight temporarily (water weight), so they're still fairly carby, which is why they're just an occasional indulgence for me.  Plus the labor factor.  I think if you made a dough, rolled it out thinly to cut them out, and then baked them, you might be able to get a crisp cracker from amaranth.  You could add some flavorings, herbs or whatever.  Looks like I've talked myself into it, lol!

Hi, C-Sharp!

I used to make a "chip" from microwaving certain cheeses - it works GREAT.  However, the Parmesan cheese in the "baked" crackers is an avoid for me....also, cheese, in general, is a trigger food, so I have to limit it.

The "microwave" crackers seem super simple.  I'll give those a try.  I don't find flax seed very tastey, but who knows?

I probably want to avoid amaranth.  I don't do well with Quinoa, and I think that they are similar.

How about Mary's Gone Crackers - flax and other seeds.  I like the plain ones the best but they also have an herb and a pepper version.  Very crunchy.  I even use them to make my version of nachos.  Ithrow them on a plate with some goat's milk cheddar and compliant salsa and nuke for just a few seconds to melt the cheese - great snack.

I just mix different seeds, flax and almonds  ( all made into flour) with eegwhite and salt
- spread out thin and bake on low heat untill crisp-

I do the same with seeds, nuts etc as "flour" & add either egg or wet (soaked) chia seeds (sometimes both) & a dash of rice bran oil... I also add either nutritional yeast or mineral salt, then cook them in a panini grill which squashes them flat & cooks them crisp...
