micronutrient flax crackers

Who would have thought crackers could be so ketogenic and nutrient dense at the same time.

This another recipe from the Ketogenic Edge Cookbook by Jessica Haggard.

There are a ton of seeds and spices that soak up a liberal amount of butter or coconut oil which is what makes them so ketogenic.

While the recipe comes out to be 20% total carbs, once you account for the massive amount of fibre the net carbs are negligible.  And the nutrient density from the herb and spices is awesome!

One thought on “micronutrient flax crackers”

  1. Fascinating! While I have IgG food sensitivities to much of what is in these crackers (ginger, basil, oregano, flax and coconut oil), the idea that nutrients and fiber outweigh the effect of carbs is priceless! I will just have to create my own foods based on this idea.

    Thanks to all!
