Ingredients

  • 1 cup flax seeds, ground
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup parmesan cheese, grated
  • 0.5 tsp rosemary powder
  • Sea salt for sprinkling

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 170C .
  2. Combine all the ingredients, apart from the salt, in a bowl.  Let sit and thicken for 5 minutes.
  3. Transfer the mixture onto an ovenproof tray lined with baking paper.
  4. Using a greased rolling pin roll the mixture into a thin sheet.
  5. Sprinkle with sea salt and bake for 10 minutes.
  6. Remove from oven, flip over and bake for another two minutes. Turn off the oven.
  7. Leave the thins in the oven to dry out for another 30 minutes.
  8. Remove from the oven and break into pieces.
  9. Serve with your favourite dip- mine is tzatziki yummmm!

Tip: It's important to drink plenty of water alongside flaxseeds (1 cup of water per tablespoon), as flaxseeds need water to work. Also, gradually introduce flaxseeds into your diet as a rapid increase can actually aggravate gut symptoms.

(Note: cooking times will vary depending on the oven).
