    Cooking With Pastor Susan Skommesa

    Sesame Flax Bar

    This is a great cracker that you can use with humus, use as bread to make a sandwich on, or just munch and snack. By dehydrating this cracker instead of baking it you keep all the enzymes, vitamins, and nutrients alive. Only living nutrients do the body good.

    Difficulty: easy

    Time: 4-6 hours to soak the Flax seeds; 15 min to put mixture together; 8-10 hours to dehydrate


    Dehydrator with Paraflexx* sheets
    Coffee Grinder
    Large bowl


    1 cup flax seed
    1/2 cup agave nectar
    1 1/2 Tablespoons cinnamon
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    2 cups sesame seeds
    1 cup raw peanuts (I don’t digest peanuts very well, so I replace the peanuts with)
    o ½ C Sunflower Seeds
    o ½ C Pumpkin Seeds
    1 C. Oatgroats** (ground fine in a coffee grinder)
    ½ C. Raisins
    ½ C. Cranberries.


    1. In a really big bowl, soak flax seeds in 1 1/2 cups of water for 4-6 hours. The water the flax seeds are soaking in get very gelatinous.
    2. After soaking flax seed, without draining the gelatinous water, add agave nectar, cinnamon, and salt. Stir well.
    3. Then add remaining ingredients: sesame seeds, raw peanuts (and/or seeds), oatgroats, raisins, and cranberries.
    4. Spread out on non stick sheets about 1/4 inch thick for crackers, an inch thick for food bars.
    5. Place in dehydrator at 115 degrees for 8-10 hours (if at cracker thinness) or until dry, flipping the large bar halfway through or when dry to touch.
    6. Cut into bread size, cracker size, or bars. Store in airtight container

    * Paraflexx sheets are the solid, nonstick sheet that goes on the dehydrator tray. If you don’t have Paraflexx sheets, wax paper works just as well.

    **Oatgroats are the hulled whole oat
