The mixture of the chia seeds, psyllium husk powder, and hot water is where the magic happens.
Combine them, and the chia seeds and psyllium powder expand and bind the crackers together. Because of its high soluble fiber content, chia seeds can absorb up to 10–12 times their weight in water! And because chia seeds expand in your stomach, they make you feel full and satisfied when you eat even small amounts.
So give these Flaxseed Crackers a try.
They are a healthy appetizer or snack with only 2g net carbs per serving. And they are perfect for low carb dips like Queso Cheese Sauce, or Curried Hummus. You can top them with cheese, meat, vegetables, anything that can reasonably be eaten on a cracker.

I made these and have been enjoying them. When spreading or rolling out the dough, make sure to spread out the middle. I left the middle a little thicker and it did not crisp. I also took a pizza cutter and divided the pan into six sections before baking.
Great recipe! How many servings does it make and what is the nutritional breakdown for one serving?
Thanks! Each serving is one sixth of the recipe, and the nutritional info is at the bottom of the recipe card. (In case you don't know about how you calculate net carbs, you subtract the fiber from the total carb amount to get the 2g net carbs.)

These crackers are fantastic. I have also made them subbing coconut oil for the butter, which gives a slightly different flavour. Both are great. Pretty hard to just eat one serving though!
Fantastic recipe - make it every week now. Thank you.
I do have a lot of trouble with your website though, as all the ads make my browser crash every time. Such a shame. Will have to print out the recipe so I don't have to use the website anymore.
So glad you like the crackers. I'm sorry to hear that your browser keeps crashing. Ads are, unfortunately, the only way to be reimbursed for the free recipes that food bloggers provide. Without them, I couldn't afford to be doing what I am doing.

Loved this recipe! I didn't have the everything bagel spice so I just added some onion powder, garlic powder and paprika instead. It came out delicious. Will definitely make again!
Sounds great. That was a really smart substitution.
