Crispy, nutritious, savoury flax seeds thins that will make you come back for more!


You will be surprised to see how easy it is to make these delicious Flax & Pumpkin Turmeric thins….

And you can truly create your own flax crackers by adding any seeds, herbs or spices you like.

I have used pumpkin seeds and turmeric here, but you can also use hemp or sesame seeds, cumin, oregano, rosemary, garlic powder… the options are unlimited 🙂

Enjoy them on their own or with your favourite dip, or try them with this Pickled Red Cabbage and Onion Relish for a mouth-watering appetizer. Yum!


What you’ll need….


  • 1 cup flax seeds
  • 4 tbsp pumpkin seeds
  • ½ tsp turmeric powder
  • ¼ tsp chili flakes
  • ½ tsp good quality sea salt (optional)
  • ½ cup water


How to…


Preheat the oven to 180C, 160 fan, gas mark 4.

Grind the flax and pumpkin seeds and add them to a medium-size bowl with the turmeric, chili and salt, if using. Mix well.

Add the water and mix well.

With clean hands, form a dough and shape it into a ball.

If the dough is too sticky, add some more flax meal.

Place the ball between two pieces of parchment paper and, using a rolling pin, roll it to your desired thickness.

Cut the dough into circles with the help of a glass. Roll any extra into more thins.

Remove the piece of parchment paper on top, and slide the paper with the thins on a baking sheet. Prick each cracker with a fork.

Bake until golden. Baking time depends on the thickness of your thins, the thicker they are, the longer it will take to bake them.

I like my thins quite thin, so they are ready in 7 minutes or so. Check them frequently to prevent burning.
