  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease 2 baking sheets.
  2. Stir flour, flax seeds, chia seeds, baking powder, salt, garlic powder, onion powder, and dried chipotle pepper powder together in a large bowl. Cut butter into flour mixture with a pastry cutter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  3. Stir water and olive oil into butter-flour mixture with a fork until dough sticks together and pulls easily off the sides of the bowl. Divide dough into 2 portions.
  4. Turn 1 dough portion out onto a floured work surface and roll out as thin as possible. Cut dough into squares and place on prepared baking sheet. Repeat with remaining dough.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until crackers are golden and crispy, about 8 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • Poking your crackers with a fork before cooking is optional. Either way you get a crisp, great-tasting cracker. Be sure to roll the dough as thin as possible.
  • You can use sesame seeds instead of chia seeds, if desired.

Nice base recipe with a lot of room for switching stuff up. This yields a TON of crackers. I'm taking this batch to a party so I'm glad of it, but I'll probably half the recipe if I make it agai...

We loved these crackers! They vanished off the table fast. I second the instruction to roll them out as thinly as possible. I baked them more than the suggested 8 minute--baked them until they w...

These are so GOOD! Used crushed red peppers, didn't have chipotle. I also brushed the tops with rosemary/garlic salt and evoo. Definitely will become a favorite!
