Product Review: Flax Seed Crackers

Flackers w/ Tuna Salad and Shredded Cucumber
My new name for crackers is "Protein Delivery Device". That is really all their good for, but it helps if they taste good too. I wanted to share a few gluten and grain free cracker options with you all. My two favorite are Foods Alive Flax Crackers and Doctor in the Kitchen's Flackers, both available at Whole Foods.

Both of these brands are primarily pressed whole flax seeds with spices. I use them as bread and load them up with my favorite proteins: tuna or chicken salad, cream cheese and sliced cucumbers, cheese and lunch meat. Serve with a salad and it makes for a great little lunch that is loaded with fiber. 1 Serving of Flackers is 3 crackers that have 0 sugar, 8 carbohydates and 7 grams of fiber for an S/C Value of 0/1. Three doesn't sound like a lot, but you can have a few more and keep the S/C the same. But it is really about what you put in the cracker that makes you feel full, and three is usually enough for me.

I know a few other bloggers have homemade recipes for flax crackers. I really should try that too, because they are not inexpensive crackers. But so far I've been to lazy and will keep buying them. If you have a good recipe, leave a comment with a link back please!

I am not paid to review or endorse either of these products, but they are staples in my grain-free diet. I don't have them everyday, but they are great to have handy for meals where I miss the crunch or when we have friends over for wine and cheese.  Click to see more Crackers Allowed on the Belly Fat Cure, I have a pretty long list.


  1. another great find thanks Amber :-)

  2. I will definately take a look at these when I am at Whole Foods next!

  3. Thanks Amber, I use to love the flax crackers made right there at my local health food store's cafe, but I stopped eating them when I discovered BFC. Their crackers were made with flax, nuts and buckwheat. Since I had no idea of their S/C value, I had to give them up for now. So nice that I can get some at Amazon. Great find.

  4. I have tried to make flax crackers before, I'll try and look up the recipe and get back to you. I am pretty sure it was Jeri who posted a cracker recipe.

    1. I would love to have that recipe...was thinking it might be better nutritionally to grind the flax seeds.

    2. Let me know Dawn! In a few weeks Ill try a recipe too, when things calm down.

  5. I would love to have a Whole Foods near by. But I'll be looking for something similar. Thanks!

  6. I do not have a Whole Foods nearby, so I was really excited to spot these at my TJMaxx!

  7. Thanks for sharing the great finds Amber! I found one of these at Whole Foods, but I saw it has soybean oil in it. Ugh, trying to eliminate everything 'unhealthy' isn't always so easy. I'm going to try making my own flax crackers eventually.

  8. Typically, I would use a cup of water for each 3-4 tablespoons of whole flax seeds, which will give you a good texture at the end of it. This ground flax seed mix is perfect for your shakes or mixed into cereal. Alternatively, you can blend your smoothie directly together with your flax seed for a tasty and healthy treat.
