People often ask, “What is the one raw food item that you wouldn’t want to be without?”. For me, it is flat bread and crackers. I always make sure that there is a batch in the cupboard. I never wait for the first batch to be gone before starting a new one. Coming up with new raw food cracker recipes is always a fun challenge. And boy, can these satisfy a craving.
I love this raw food recipe is because of its versatility. Throw on a few veggies or sprouts and you have a healthy snack. They are also great with spreads and make beautiful appetizers. This recipe for BBQ crackers is one of my favorites. They have a great consistency. Not super hard like a lot of the crackers. They have a nice mouth feel.
The crackers are pictured with avocado and tomato, one of my favorite toppings.
- 1 C Almonds (soaked, dried, ground fine in the food processor)
- 1 C Raw Oat Flour*
- 1 C flax
- 2 C Water
- 2 T Olive Oil
- 2 T BBQ Spice Mix
Place flax seed in the 2 c water and soak until soft. This will take at least an hour. Combine soaked flax seeds with other ingredients, spread about 1/4 ” thick on a non-stick dehydrator sheet. Score into squares. Dehydrated for 145 for 45 minutes (don’t worry, the food never goes above 116 and it helps reduce dehydration time) and then reduce to 115 and dehydrate until dry.
Makes 1.5 trays.
Chef’s note: Make sure your BBQ spice mix only contains herbs and spices. Many put additives and sugar in them.
