Flaxseed Crackers

Looking for healthy snack ideas? If you usually turn to fruit, or fruit based snacks, but want something different, then it might be time to consider something like, these flaxseed crackers. We often buy crackers, but you can make your own! It will take you a couple of hours once every 6 weeks (depending on how many you are eating a day, of course!). They will last in the pantry, in an air tight container for a couple of months, they contain wonderful seaweeds which have lots of minerals in them and of course the flaxseeds themselves for the fibre and omega 3 oils. The nutrients in these crackers, are so far ahead of regular crackers so worth the time.
