Flackers are a product unlike any I’ve seen before. Rather than your typical, hydrogenated, preservative-laden crackers found in the snack aisle at the grocery store, Flackers can be a HUGE attribute to your healthy diet.
There is absolutely no flour of any kind, no leavening, and no chemical preservatives. The ingredients are simple (see below) and pack a huge nutritional punch – EFAs, fiber, and protein.
Here’s a better breakdown of what makes flax seeds so incredibly wonderful for our bodies:
“Flax seeds are naturally high in alpha linolenic acid, a heart healthy omega-3 fatty acid. They are packed with fiber, which helps to maintain normal cholesterol levels and promote optimal digestion. They are a rich source of plant lignans – a type of naturally occurring phytonutrient. Also, these powerhouse seeds are gluten free, so they are great for people with gluten sensitivities and/or celiac’s disease. In addition, they are filled with antioxidants, protein and many vitamins and minerals. These delicious flax seed crackers are gluten free, they do not contain any yeast, or rice and they are also sugar-free!”
Flackers come in three different varieties
Dill – Organic Dill + Red Chili Peppers
Savory – Organic Garlic, Onion, Chili Pepper + Basil
Rosemary – Organic Rosemary + Sage
My favorite way to eat these babies is with either a wedge of light cheese (Babybel, Laughing Cow, or Sonoma Jacks) or slathered in hummus! They also make a great addition to salads if you crumble them up, in place of croutons. I’ve even tried them smashed overtop of savory oats with an egg and some Light Ragu sauce!
