now that ive got Biscru.


Biscru are these amazingly tasty raw crackers, created by a French chef, Serge de Thaey. Serge was looking 2 create a tasty vegetarian gluten-free cracker and luckily 4 us, he came up with something that is totally raw.


the main ingredients are buckwheat, flax, sunflower and psyllium. its the addition of psyllium that makes them light & crispy.

then there R lots of different flavours – at the moment we R stocking 4 of them.


these R mi favrites (above), the black olive  & onion. we’ve also got tomato & paprika (which i think taste like frazzles), beetroot & carrot, & banana & blueberry.


it’s hard not 2 just eat them straight out the packet, like crisps, they R so good. here’s Reuben enjoying his with sum pumpkin butter.


we’ve got them on special offer all may – they R meant 2 B £3.95 a bag but we R doing 4 bags for a tenner. Just 2 get U addicted.

how 2 make flax crackers

notice that the first rule of flax crackers is 2 soak ur flax.

2 cups flaxseeds in 1 litre of water for 4-8 hours.


u can make just abt any flavour u can imagine with flax crackers.

one of our favrites is purple corn & cranberries.

stir in 2 tsp purple corn, 1 cup dried cranberries.


spread the mixture on ur dehydrator trays. it will make 2 1/2 trays.

notice that this is very easy.


notice that i do not straighten the edges, nature abhors a straight line.

dehdydrate 4 8 hours, then score, flip & dry another 4-8 hrs on the other side.


i believe flax 2 b one of the most essential foods. we eat flax crackers every day.


reuben often has them 4 breakfast. i like savoury ones topped with tahini & alfalfa.


& we all like them as a snack topped with chocolate spread.
