Try this wonderful Italian style flax cracker that is loaded with omega-3 fatty acids. Once you master this simple cracker, have fun creating variations such as honey-sesame flax, honey-cinamon flax, or peanut butter flax. See Original Fast Foods for the precise recipe instructions and also to view several variations of this cracker.

I've made these before, but without buckwheat. It was really helpful to see how you did the buckwheat. Watching it is so helpful. What a wonderful service. Thank you very much!

Is there a certain amount of water that you soak the flax in? I haven't caught that here or in the book. Thanks, Kathryn

The ratio of water to buckwheat or flaxseed is the same; it is 2 cups water to 1 cup grain or seed. Soak for 24 hours before draining the water and rinsing the buckwheat. You won't have to drain the flaxseed or rinse it because it will become gelatinous and will bind everything else together in the recipe found in the book. Jim

I'd like to try these crackers but don't have buckwheat on hand right now. Will it work to substitute regular wheat?

Faye, hulled buckwheat (without the shells) works much better in this recipe. Most health-food stores carry them or can order them in. Even a local grocer can order them in. Regular wheat will nearly break your teeth in these crackers, unless perhaps you grind it first. You could certainly do that. Let me know how it works for you! Jim

Well, I'll wait for the buckwheat then. Thanks for the quick reply. Can't wait to try them.
