Low carb flax crackers

LOW CARB FLAX CRACKERS| GLUTEN FREE | GAPs| Paleo

Going low carb and not sure what to do about snacks? I’ve got your back my friend.  These low carb flax crackers are not only super healthy, but they will satisfy all your snacking cravings.

 

Going low starch can help you tremendously manage inflammation without drugs (with few exceptions of course). A lot of research has shown that people who suffer from arthritis and ankylosing spondylitis have reached noticeable improvements up to a total recession with a low starch diet.   If you have an autoimmune inflammatory illness, you will want to research the low starch protocol – there are usualy under these names: AIPs diet, the GAPs diet or the AS low starch diet.

 

I have personally started the GAPs protocol and beside the obvious steady reduction in inflammation, I have also learned so much about food since I decided to go cold turkey and do it.  My biggest takeaway was that “eating healthy” is totally subjective.  What may be healthy for you, may make me sick and vice versa.

 

You have to find what works for your body and what makes you thrive. Black beans, whole grains and spinach are considered healthy, whole foods. Yet if you have an autoimmune illness, those foods that contain antinutrients may do more harm than good and cause inflammation. Not everyone will have a reaction, that’s why an elimination diet can be very beneficial in this case. You need to know your body very well and notice how it reacts to what you put in it.

 

Antinutrients are compounds found in plants that diminish nutrients absorption in the digestion system.

 

Now, since I started on GAPs, I eliminated all grains, seeds and nuts (except almond flour and almond butter). The diet has an introductory phase and then you keep introducing new foods as you monitor your reaction.  To keep this post sweet and short, I won’t go in full detail but you can checkout more about this protocol here and if you are interested in getting started with low starch, gut healing recipes, check out The Heal Your Gut Cookbook I got when I first started.

 

Now..let’s jump in to the recipe and show you how I made these yummy crackers.

They are actually thinner than the image and very crispy..I had to zoom in to show the texture.

 

TIP: To simply things as much as possible. I transferred the dough directly onto parchment paper and sliced it there instead of doing this on a counter, instead of transferring the pieces separately.

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees (F)
  2. Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl. Stir very well and add water until you reach a consistent dough (it shouldn't be thick)
  3. Bring the dough onto parchment paper. Slice it into equal(ish) squares. I used a sharp knife. Dip the knife is water evertyime to prevent sticking. Transfer the the sheet onto a cookie pan (oiling the pan is not necessary)
  4. Bake for 15 minutes. Turn the oven off and leave them inside the oven for up to 30 minutes. The crackers will dry out and become crispy.
