Forget boxed crackers! These crunchy crackers are made from only flax meal, making them completely grain-free and gluten-free by default. All you need to make them is flax meal, water, and seasoning (which can be sweet or savory), so the entire process is both simple and affordable. Serve the savory crackers with your favorite spread and for the sweet crackers, try them with a heaping dollop of chickpea cookie dough.
