Basic Sesame Crackers

A delicious and healthy snack for when you're craving a salty crunch.

2 C sesame seeds, unhulled
1 C golden flax, ground
2 Tbsp olive oil
2 Tbsp yellow yeast
1/2 C poppy seeds
1 tsp salt
2 cloves garlic, minced
Dash cayenne or fresh jalapeno
Enough water to make a thin paste

Put all ingredients into a food processor and process until smooth, adding enough water to make a texture like waffle batter.

Spread 1/8" thick on 2 non-stick cookie sheets.

Dehydrate at 115° until dry enough to flip and remove from sheet. Turn onto mesh sheet and score with pizza cutter or knife to desired size. Continue dehydrating until dry and crispy. Break apart and cool, then store in an air-tight container.


1) To make them more spicy, add 4-6 medium tomatoes and process with 1 fresh jalapeno and 1 Tbsp Bragg's Aminos instead of salt. Also add 1/2 C sun-dried tomatoes and/or 2 Tbsp ground caraway seed.

2) To make them more sweet, add 1/2 C honey or agave syrup or 6 softened dates or raisins and/or 1/2 tsp cinnamon or 2-3 Tbsp maple syrup and spice of choice.

Servings: makes about 50 2x2 crackers
