Wholegrain Flaxseed & Sesame Crackers (Vegan) | #BreadBakers

    Wholegrain Flaxseed and Sesame crackers are crisp and delicious. The crackers are guilt-free and make a  healthy snacking option. Enjoy plain or with cheese spread or with your favourite dip

     A heavy downpour plummeted the temperature. Winter is yet to stay it seemed.  Higher peaks of the region had mild snowfall. 

    But the next day, the sky was clear and azure. The Sun emerged from behind the hills in all the glory and strength.  The warmth infused a new life and high spirits that wiped the winter blues away.
    Far away near the bank of the river, we noticed some movement in the bushes. It was a fox. A majestic animal soon joined by two more were perhaps in search of some prey.

    The foxes moved ahead and one of them reached the puddle left by heavy rainfall a day ago. It looked intrigued by its reflection in the water. 

    A neighbour’s dog barked and the foxes disappeared in the forest.

    A sweet aroma wafted through and the timer chimed. Our whole wheat flaxseed crackers are ready. Crisp and seedy crackers make great guilt-free snacking option. 

    The crackers are a great accompaniment to a cup of tea, you’ll love them with cheese spread or some homemade dip.
    I have baked the crackers with oil. You may use the same quantity of ghee (clarified butter) or butter for a rich buttery taste.
