Flax Seed Crackers With Turmeric - Gluten-free and Low Carb Recipe

Sometimes you just need something to nibble on. However, conventional nibbles such as crisps, crackers and salt bars are often very rich in fat, carbohydrates and calories.

Yet you don't have to give up tasty, spicy snacks, even if you're on a low-carb diet. Our low-carb flax seed crackers are made without flour or animal products and are therefore low-carb, vegan and gluten-free.

FlaxSeed Crackers Keto and Vegan

The crunchy flax seed crackers are very easy to make and taste mega delicious - the perfect low carb snack for in-between meals or a cosy evening on TV.

  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Preparation time: approx. 20 minutes + 20 minutes waiting and baking time
  • Number of portions: approx. 20 linseed crackers

Ingredients for the crunchy low carbohydrate flax seed crackers:

  • 100g flax seed
  • 2 teaspoons sesame seeds
  • 1 tablespoon rapeseed oil
  • 2 tablespoons sunflower seeds
  • 2 tablespoons pumpkin seeds
  • 50g almond flour
  • 120g of water
  • pinch of baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric


1.) Pour the water over the flax seeds and let them swell for 20 minutes.

2.) Chop the seeds coarsely.

3.) Add all the other ingredients to the flax seeds and mix well. The dough should be firm but easy to shape and not crumbly.

4.) Take portions of the dough with a teaspoon, place them on a tray and press them flat. This is best done with slightly damp hands. The crackers should be nice and thin, then they become really crispy.

5.) Drizzle the baking tray with some water and bake the crackers in the preheated oven at 200 degrees top and bottom heat for about 15 to 20 minutes. Make sure they don't get too dark, because then they will become bitter. So it is better to look in the oven more often towards the end of the baking time.

Tips and useful information:

Flax seed as a healthy ingredient for our low carb crackers

Flax seed is a healthy homely super food. Unfortunately, they are often overshadowed by chia seeds. In fact, they offer just as many valuable ingredients, are a regional food unlike chia seeds and are considerably cheaper.

The small brown seeds contain a lot of fiber. Per 100 grams they provide about 35 to 40 grams of the satiating plant substances.

Flax seed also contains many vitamins and minerals. They contain among others vitamins B5 and B6, folic acid, phosphorus, zinc, selenium and magnesium.

It should also be noted that flax seed is one of the best vegetable sources of omega 3 fatty acids. It is important to consume these kinds of fatty acids, because the body cannot produce them itself, but needs them for many processes.

Here's how to modify the flax seed crackers

You can easily change the basic recipe for the crackers. The only important thing is to keep the ratio of the ingredients as good as possible so that the consistency fits.

Instead of the seeds and sesame seeds used here, you can of course use any kind you want. You can also really blow off steam with the herbs. A little curry, chili powder, garlic powder or dried oregano for example, taste very good.

The flax seed crackers taste particularly good if you sprinkle them with a little cheese before baking. But then they are no longer vegan.

Have fun trying them, make sure they taste good!
