Healthy crackers made with whole wheat and flax seeds meal. I just loved the way these turned out! Loved the nuttiness from the flax, whereas cheese and pepper made these extra delicious. I wanted to bake something similar to cream cracker as my hubby likes them and he wanted me to bake something like that. But I ended up with this recipe, it is not like cream cracker but it sure tastes great. Can be enjoyed with a dip or as it is.
- Whole wheat 3/4 cup
- Organic flax seeds meal 1/4 cup
- Cheddar cheese 25 g or 1 cheese cube (room temperature)

- Mix the whole wheat flour, flax meal, Salt, pepper and sugar.
- Take butter and rub it to the flour mix till it resembles like sand. Add grated cheese to it and mix.
- Add a tablespoon of milk at a time to bring the dough together, do not knead. Form a soft dough.
- Keep it covered for 10 minutes. Roll it very thin between two butter paper or parchment sheet. Cut using a cookie cutter or with a knife. Place the cookies on a parchment lined baking tray and prick them with a fork. Pricking prevents the crackers to puff up while baking.
