Introduction: QUICK & EASY FLAXSEED CRACKERS

Flaxseeds(linseeds) is one of the super foods everyone seems to be raving about at the moment and unlike chia seeds it is more affordable. The benefits are countless, studies have shown that it prevents cancer, improves blood sugar, high in fiber and heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids.

There are many natural constipation remedies out there, from prune juice, senna leaves,soft fruits, and high fiber vegetables or cereals believe me I have tried them all. This flaxseed crackers recipe is the best natural constipation remedy with no side effects! You see, flaxseed has something called mucilage which is a slimy, gum-like compound that provides a temporarily soothing and protective coating along the entire digestive tract. It provides both bulk and softness to the stool. These properties make it an excellent tool to relieve constipation, as well as stomach and intestinal inflammation.

This is a very easy-to-make nutty, healthy and crunchy snack with just 3 ingredients. You can add more herbs and spices according to your taste. Perfect satisfying the cracker/biscuit craving. It is delicious and you can enjoy them anytime and anywhere.

Great idea! But I would agree with 1joyjunkie2. I read somewhere that flax seeds don't get assimilated by the body so it's better to grind them. I do powder them when they're dry but not sure if they'll blend when soaked. Anyone?

It is the raw seeds that don't get assimilated. When they are soaked, toasted or roasted they are digested better and so far I have not had any issues with them.

Ooops, almost forgot....I would suggest blending the flax in a blender....from what I understand, flax seeds can get stuck in the intestinal tract; grinding them in a blender would be easier to digest and better for you.
