IIFYM "If It Fit Your Macros"

I’ve made this recipe before which I found on about.com awhile back but I’ve tweaked it a little and it’s been a staple in our house ever since.
It’s so nice to have a crunchy low carb snack, I like to spread some cream cheese on the crackers for a quick snack.

Cheesy Spicy Flax Crackers

A great high fiber, crunchy, nutritious, and tasty snack. Good with dips, spreads, or plain.
 
Ingredients:
1 cup flax seed meal
1/3 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
1/3 cup Old Cheddar cheese, shredded,
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper (or to taste)
1  cup water

Preparation:

Heat oven to 400 F.

Cover the mixture with a piece of plastic wrap.
Spread and flatten out the mixture. I used a rolling pin to flatten it out.
It’s important to flatten it even from edge to edge or else the thin sections with overcook before the center firms up. Remove plastic wrap once it’s been flattened.

Using the back of a knife, gently score into 42 crackers (7 x 6).
Bake until the center is no longer soft, about 15-25 minutes.  Or longer depending on your oven.  If it’s soft to the touch it needs to bake longer until it gets firm like a cracker.
Let cool completely.    Break into pieces and store in a air tight container.

Each cracker is 1 net carb.

Enjoy!
