Garlic rosemary flaxseed crackers made in my food dehydrator

Savory crackers made with nutritional yeast or parmesan cheese can also be baked in the oven

This recipe was modified from fiddleheadscuisine blog.
1 cup golden flaxseed, freshly ground in a coffee grinder
1/4 cup nutritional yeast (or 1/4 cup ground parmesan cheese)
1/2 tsp lite salt
1 tbs fresh rosemary
1/2 tbs garlic powder
1 cup grated carrot
1 cup water, plus a little more to make a spreadable batter
The batter was spread on a solid dehydrator tray. The crackers were dried in the food dehydrator for a few hours and then flipped onto a screen tray, enabling the cracker to continue drying from both sides for the remaining hours. When drying was complete the crackers were cut, sealed in plastic storage bags and kept in the refrigerator. For those who don't have a food dehydrator these crackers can be oven baked as described in fiddleheadscuisine blog. These flaxseed crackers are a good source of the omega-3 fatty acid nutrition that is so often deficient in typical western diets.

Nutritional Yeast or Parmesan Cheese provides the yum-yum factor

Nutritional yeast provides a savory, nutty, cheesy flavor (Bea Rue blog) comprised of protein and b-vitamins (Nutrition Facts).

Parmesan cheese provides real cheese flavor comprised of mostly protein and fat, including a lot of saturated fat (Nutrition Facts).
