Exercise your mind and body


Here’s a recipe I found on about.com awhile back but never got around to making it.  I made it yesterday and I’m going to have to make a second batch before the week is over since my whole family loves them.
It’s so nice to have a crunchy low carb snack.  It’s great with cream cheese. 

Garlic Parmesan Flax Seed Crackers

A great high fiber, crunchy, nutritious, and tasty snack. Good with dips, spreads, or plain.
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes

Ingredients:

1 cup flax seed meal
1/3 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
1 and 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup water

Preparation:

Heat oven to 400 F.

Mix all ingredients together.
Spoon onto sheet pan which is lined with parchment paper.
Cover the mixture with a piece of parchment or waxed paper. Spread and flatten out the mixture to about 1/8 inch. I used a rolling pin to flatten it out.
The important thing is not to let it be too thin around the edges or that part will overcook before the center firms up. So after you spread it out, remove the paper and go around the edges with your finger and push the thin part inwards to even it up.

Using a knife, gently score into 50 crackers (10 crackers x 10 crackers).
Bake until the center is no longer soft, about 15-18 minutes. If it starts to get more than a little brown around the edges, remove from oven. Let cool completely – it will continue to crisp up.
Break into pieces.

The whole recipe is 6 grams of effective carbohydrate plus 35 grams of fiber

0.2 Net Carbs per cracker.

Enjoy!
