Fun with the Dehydrator: Flax Crackers with Everything

There's something about an Everything bagel that just makes me swoon. Actually, I think it's the combination of the "everything" spices that really gets me. I was in the grocery store yesterday and saw some Everything Pretzels and almost picked them up. But I've been trying to eat as raw and as healthy as possible the past few days, so I left them on the shelf. As I came home and unpacked my groceries, the pretzels still loomed in my mind.

I've been addicted to flax crackers lately, since they are healthy and super easy to make in the dehydrator. I was thinking about making another batch of my standard Mexican flavor until it hit me - flax crackers with "everything!"

This recipe is delicious. The seeds and spices add a wonderful element of flavor to this cracker. They are crispy and delicious, and I've been dipping them into everything lately. I'm sure you can make this in a very low heat oven, so if you try it, let me know how it works out!

Oh, and check back on Wednesday for a lovely creamy Raw dip that pairs wonderfully with these.
