Red Pepper Flax Crackers
So I'm totally diggin' these crackers but my kids aren't. :( I've got to find a flax seed cracker they'll actually like. But, who knows, maybe they'll come to like these too.
Here's the recipe:
2 cups flax seeds
1 cup sunflower seeds
1 small tomato, chopped
1/4 medium onion, chopped
1 clove garlic
1/4 - 1/2 cup chopped red pepper
3/4 - 1 tsp sea salt
juice from 1 lemon
Soak flax seeds in 4 cups of water for 2-8 hours.
Soak sunflower seeds in 3 cups water for 2-8 hours.

Drain sunflower seed water.
Place sunflower seeds in food processor.
Add in all other ingredients - besides the flax seeds.
Process until smooth. (takes some time but keep going)
Add in (thickened) soaked flax seeds.
Pulse until its well incorporated.
Grease dehydrator sheets.
Pour and spread mixture onto sheets keeping to 1/8" to 1/16" thickness.
Dehydrate at 105° for 8 hours.

After 8 hours, flip crackers onto mesh sheets.
Dehydrate for another 8 hours @ 115°.
Break, store in container @ room temperature for weeks and enjoy!!
*You can try scoring the flax mixture after first putting it on the tray for more even pieces ... but this may make flipping it a bit harder. OR try scoring them AFTER you've flipped them.
