Banana Flax seed Crackers

What do you do with a ton of flaxseeds and a banana your about to toss out….

You make Banana Flax seed Crackers of course!

I found this idea on Taralynn Mcnitts blog.

I was very Leery about this recipe, but they turned out so good!

Mash up 1 banana and add 1/2 cup of flax seeds. Mix well together and drop about a spoon full for each cracker on a baking sheet.

Bake at 300 degrees for 25 minutes…your kitchen will smell like banana bread 🙂

And I’m serious when I say they really do taste like banana bread.

These crackers are so healthy and full of fiber to fill you up. I think I’m going to keep some in my purse to take tailgating at the football game tomorrow!

If you try making these tell me what you think!

  1. I’m all for my house smelling like banana bread! Will definitely try this recipe! You made me a believer when I tried your quinoa recipe. It’s actually my lunch today–quinoa with Stacey’s Multigrain pita chips, a small green salad, and peach. Yummy! Thanks for the unique, but also tasty ideas Michelle! 🙂 KP

  2. I did these all 3 of my kids and myself think there great! Thank you.

  3. Mine didn’t come out flat like yours , they retained a cookie shape. They’re delicious. I think I’d like them to be flat though. Any suggestions?

  4. Ah, I see why. I baked them at 200 instead of 300. I’ll try the higher heat next time, maybe that will flatten them out!

    I know this is from forever ago, but I was wondering roughly how many crackers 1 banana and 1/2 cup of flax seed makes? I’m using this recipe for a nutrition class and I would like to give everyone a taste.

    • This recipe made about 8. It depends on how big you make them as well.
      I am so excited to hear you are going to use this recipe for your nutrition class! Hope everyone likes them!
      Good luck!!
