Whole wheat and flax seeds impart a wonderful nutty aroma to the crackers, while giving a crunchy bite and texture.

“Crackers can be addictive!” Hmm.. never knew till I baked these Flax seed wholewheat crackers for myself. Ragi, Millet, cornmeal, oats and Quinoa in the pantry pushed this super food to a corner. After a long hibernation that packet of shiny brown Flax seeds finally moved out from my refrigerator. And when I was thinking to bake something with my tiny treasure, got a call from mom.
I am not one of those fortunate daughters who live close to their mom. I meet her once in a year or sometimes after a period of two years. But talking we do almost on a daily basis, thanks to the cell phone companies. During one of our chats she informed me that she made ‘Shakkarpare‘ (or Indian deep fried cookies) with flax seeds or Alsi as we call in Hindi. She does lots of creative cooking, now that her family responsibilities have reduced to minimum.
This is when I thought of making my own version of crackers by baking the same recipe of mom. And voila I got these highly addictive and healthy first batch of my Flax seeds whole wheat crackers smiling at me ready for a quick bite. Whole wheat and flax seeds impart a wonderful nutty aroma to the crackers, while the whole seeds (flax & sesame) give a crunchy bite and texture to the goodies.Print
