RECIPE: Sun-Dried Tomato Flax Seed Crackers

I realized the other day that I had been neglecting my dehydrator and, feeling badly for it, decided to put it to good use!

Since getting my dehydrator nearly three months ago, I have been wanting to make bread/crackers and I finally did!

I made crackers!

Here's the recipe, so you can make some of these bad boys yourself!

Sun-Dried Tomato Flax Seed Crackers


-  3/4 c. ground flax seed
-  1 c. sun-dried tomatoes, soaked 30 minutes or so
-  1-14.5 oz. can fire roasted tomatoes, drained thoroughly
-  1 clove garlic, minced
-  2 small shallots, diced
-  1/3 c. fresh basil leaves
-  1 T. freshly squeezed lemon juice
-  2 tsp. nutritional yeast
-  2 tsp. dried basil
-  2 tsp. thyme
-  2 tsp. sage
-  2 tsp. oregano
-  1 tsp. rosemary
-  1 tsp. salt

Combine all ingredients in a food processor.  When fully mixed, pour batter onto dehydrator tray and spread to corners.  Use a pizza slicer to score the batter, creating whatever sized crackers you'd like.  Dehydrate at 105' for 6 hours or so then separate the crackers, flip them over, and continue to dehydrate for another 4 hours, or until desired consistency is reached.


  1. I have never tried raw crackers before, they seem like the texture would not be all that great. Yours look so perfect though, like ones you could buy in store. I love the color as well, very eye pleasing.

    It seems like it would be so much fun to have a dehydrator, the creations would be endless.

  2. Is there any way you can cook these? I don't have a dehydrator, but REALLY want to make these. : (

    1. you can turn your oven on to the lowest temperature and cook/dehydrate them that way. decreasing the total time.

  3. Aww, you are so sweet! Unfortunately, I don't know how well these will turn out in an oven but you can of course give it a try! Just set your oven to the lowest temp it'll go, leave the door open a crack and experiment with cooking times! I'd start with an hour and 15 minutes and go from there!! Good luck!!
