Servings: 43 crackers 


  • 2 cups Bob’s Red Mill Flaxseed Meal 
  • 1 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 2 tsp onion powder
  • 2 tsp garlic powder 
  • 4 tbsp Za’atar seasoning
  • 1 tbsp organic black sesame seeds
  • 2 tbsp raw sunflower seeds
  • 2 tbsp raw pumpkin seeds
  • 2 tbsp hemp seeds
  • 1/2 cup raw cashews 
  • 1/3 cup raw walnuts
  • 1/2 cup almonds
  • 1/4 cup sun dried tomatoes, packed in oil
  • 1 cup water 


  • Preheat the oven 350F. 
  • In a large mixing bowl, add in the flax meal, nutritional yeast and spices and mix well. 
  • Add all of the nuts and seeds to a food processor and pulse till you have a powdery crumble. 
  • Now add in the flax meal, nutritional yeast and spices. Pulse till everything is mixed together. 
  • Add in the sun dried tomatoes and water, then blend until a dough-like ball forms. If the dough appears dry, add an additional tablespoon of water to achieve the consistency. 
  • Transfer the dough to a large mixing bowl, then use your hands to finish mixing everything together. 
  • Take 1 tablespoon of dough at a time and roll it into a ball. Repeat until you’ve formed little balls with all of the dough. 
  • Place a dough ball between parchment paper. Using the bottom of a pint glass, evenly press it down to create a round disc approximately over 2 inches in diameter. Repeat for all of the balls. 
  • Arrange the round crackers on a sheet pan lined with parchment paper for baking. 
  • Use a fork to gently pole a couple of rows of holes into the top of each cracker. Sprinkle it with salt.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes until the tops of the crackers and the edges are golden brown. 
  • Transfer crackers to a baking rack and let them cool completely.
