Tasty RAW Chip
and Cracker Recipes
Finding good "comfort food" is important with this diet. Chip and cracker recipes are what I crave the most. I found a small collection
that are now my favorites and I've listed them below. Don't get too carried away though.
Although these foods are nutritious, you can
still pack on the pounds if you eat too much!
Most of the recipes listed on this page are made with some sort of nut or seed so they have a high fat content. It's the "good" fat, but it's
still high calorie.
If you're looking to gain weight, then go to town! But if you're like me, you'll need to watch your chip and cracker intake.
Balance out these chip and cracker recipes with lots of fruits, veggies, and greens.
Try adding seaweed or dulce flakes to your salads if you're craving a snack that's salty but not so high in fat.
Also remember to practice good food combining techniques and just eating in moderation! It's easy to start munching on these tasty
snacks and forget when to stop!
I found this recipe on the Raw Food Talk forum. This is truly one of the best cracker recipes that I've found!
Although they have the color and texture of "Cheese Its", I wouldn't say that they taste "exactly" like them. They ARE very good though!
- 1 cup sunflower seeds (soaked 4 hrs and dehydrated)
- 1 cup Brazil nuts (soaked and dehydrated)
- 1 cup almonds (soaked and dehydrated)
- 1 big tomato
- 1 cup red pepper, diced
- 1 tsp cumin
- 2 tsp salt
- 1 Tbsp taco seasoning
- 1 tsp onion powder
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- Process all ingredients and spread on teflex or parchment paper. They can be as thin as you like.
- After a few hours score with a knife or pizza cutter and leave until dry on top.
- Flip over and leave until crispy. Approximately 8 - 12 hours depending on thickness.
These kale chips are soooo tasty! I'm not a big fan of kale, but came across this recipe on the Raw Food Talk forum. It had such rave reviews
that I decided to try it. Well I wasn't disappointed! I knew right away that I had to include it on my cracker recipes page!
My daughter commented that "they just melt in your mouth!".
I haven't tried any variations yet, but I'm sure they would taste good with garlic, cayenne pepper, or maybe even dill! There are a ton
of flavors you can experiment with.
- 1 bunch of kale
- 1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- 1 tsp salt
- Remove ribs from kale and place in bowl.
- Add olive oil and salt to bowl and massage the ingredients into the kale.
- Lay on lined dehydrator trays. Dehydrate at 115 degrees F for about 4-6 hours or until crisp.
You can buy kale chips from various raw food sites too. One of my favorite sites sell these
Kale Chips (Cheesy) 3.5 oz.
Garlic Flax Crackers
This simple cracker recipe is great for making sandwiches! Place a nut or veggie burger in between two crackers with some lettuce and sliced
tomatos and you have a delicious, filling meal!
I like to score the mixture with a knife once I flip them over. This makes them easier to break into crackers once dried.
- 2 cups flax seeds
- 1/4 cup Braggs Liquid Aminos
- 1 lemon, juiced
- 1 Tbsp garlic powder
- Soak flax seeds in 4 cups distilled water for 30 minutes or more.
- Strain lightly through a cheese cloth or nut milk bag and add back to bowl. You don't have to get all the liquid out,
just the excess. It should still have a gel like consistency.
- Add the remaining ingredients.
- Spread onto Teflex lined dehydrator trays. Dehydrate at 115 degrees F for about 4 hours. Flip the sheets over and remove the liners.
Dehydrate for an additional 4 hours or until crisp.
Hot-n-Spicy Tortilla Chips
These chips have a spicy "kick" to them. If you want to tone them down a bit, replace the habanero peppers with jalapenos or another
When the chips are a couple hours from done, I cut them into little triangles so they look like authentic tortilla chips.
These taste great dipped in smoky cheese dip or simple salsa.
- 3 cups raw corn
- 1 medium red pepper, chopped
- 1/2 small yellow onion, chopped
- 3/4 cup flaxseed, finely ground (about 1 cup ground)
- 1/2 cup hemp seed
- 2 Tbsp lime juice
- 2 habanero peppers, minced and seeded
- 1 tsp chili powder
- 2 tsp cumin
- 2 tsp sea salt
- Chop the corn, pepper, and onion in a food processor.
- Add the remaining ingredients and blend until combined.
- Using a spatula, spread the dough onto Teflex lined dehydrator trays. Dehydrate at 115 degrees F for about 8 hours.
Flip the sheets over and remove the liners. Dehydrate for an additional 8 hours or until crisp.
Sun-Dried Tomato Crackers
I think you'll love the sweetness of the sun dried tomatos and red peppers combined together. This cracker recipe has a nice simple sweet flavor.
