Raw Flax Seed Crackers

These flax crackers are the perfect snack for the work day’s afternoon slump or an airplane/road trip snack. Their omega 3 fats are essential for optimal circulation and mental acuity but are easily damaged by heat so make them in a dehydrator and store in a cool place. To create real indulgence, enjoy with this white bean puree or zucchini hummus.
