Tomato Flax Crackers (Dairy, Egg, Gluten/Grain and Sugar Free)

I made these crackers in my dehydrator but they can also be made in your oven.  See below for details.


  • 1 clove garlic
  • 2 tomatoes cut in quarters
  • 1 cup flax seeds or chia seeds
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin
  • 1/2 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • pinch of cayenne or more to taste
  • sea salt and pepper to taste
  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Blend all ingredients until smooth and easy to spread. If you want to increase flavour let it soak for an hour.  
  3. With a spatula spread out mixture onto parchment paper until 1/4 inch thick.
  4. To make them easier to shape, gently score your cracker mixture with a knife to a desired shape.
  5. Bake for 12-15 minutes until able to flip then bake for another 5 minutes until crispy.
* I put these in the dehydrator at 115F for 12-15 hours.


  1. Great that you're doing've already got lots up for such a short time...

  2. What benefits has the dehydrator vs the oven? I have never heard of dehydrators so enquiring :)

  3. When using a dehydrator at a low setting (115) you are keeping foods at a more raw state and thus they are retaining more of their vitamins and nutrients, making them healthier.
