I eat a lot of flax seed and it doesn't seem to take me out of ketosis. It makes good bread and I also use it for pancakes and in meatloaf.

That will be interesting to figure out EO. Looking forward to that.

I'd eat flax seed crisps if they were low carb...

Haven't had a chance to research this yet--but ran across one MD online at YouTube who claims that Flax Seed does not increase estrogen; but instead balances estrogen. This is an interesting point of view. I do not eat flax often, just looking for an unleavened bread recipe for the upcoming Passover/ULB holiday season when I ran across this flax-seed based on which doesn't contain any of my allergens. I've not had any symptoms from eating it--and I generally don't do well with a high estrogen diet (unless I also intentionally over-consume the broccoli for the DIM). After the holiday season, I will try to research this topic more than just N=1 anecdotal stories and see if that turns out to be true or not--but wanted to post it in case in impacts someone else's decisions on this or not.

I'm with you @2BDYNAMIC ...while I like having options for special occasions, things like crackers aren't part of my daily fare. While they're all comparatively low-carb, the carbs for the day add up really quickly with a good high-fat dip, LOL. I prefer to have good dips with my protein (sort of like sauce), or stirred into spaghetti squash.

I will probably shy away for now, as one of the reasons I started keto was to reduce the high amount of inflammation in my body. Keeping my meals super simple for now, since only being on keto for around 10 days. Thanks everyone for sharing!

It's great if they work for you! Your comment is a perfect example of why options are important!

These both have cheese in them and I find that dairy products, except butter are not particularly good for me. I'll stick with my flax recipes.

I'm sure these are great crackers and check that crackers and dip box quite nicely, however, anyone with inflammatory/hormone issues may want to look for other alternatives.

Flax is estrogenic, so it can exacerbate hormone issues. Flax is also very high in omega 6s, which are inflammatory, especially if you're already not getting enough omega 3s. It can cause inflammation to rise, and worsen some autoimmune conditions. For this team, due to the age of the target audience, these might be considerations to not.

Here are some other good low-carb cracker alternative if you need be careful:

Yes. I added this recipe, as is, to the SP recipe database so I could more easily track it. Feel free to remake it to your taste buds. I'm so looking forward to making this one again! As it is--the recipe forms a "dough" so nicely it is a pleasure to work with. Here is the link to the recipe, my photo, and the nutritional info.

INGREDIENTS:
1 Cup Golden Flax Meal (or fresh ground flax seeds)
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup water
(optional: spices or herbs)

DIRECTIONS:
~Mix together well until mixture forms a dough ball and no dry ingredients remain.
~Allow dough to rest for flax to fully absorb the water.
~Roll between two sheets of parchment paper to be thin (about the thinness of Tortillas)
~Bake in a 350 F oven until crisp at the edges (when cool it is less moist).

Break into pieces (for crackers, for the base of nachos or taco salad, etc) and serve. These are sturdy enough to really "crunch" and to be used in conjunction with butter, herbal or cheese spread, dips, or as nachos.

Flavor Variations: Stir into the salt and flax one of the following flavors--before adding the water. A dash Olive oil, Onion Powder, Garlic Powder, Tomato Powder, Parsley Flakes, Nutritional Yeast, Rosemary, Italian Seasoning.
