    1 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/2 cup water

Directions

Put all ingredients in a bowl and stir until combined.

Spray a cookie sheet with cooking spray or line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and spray with cooking spray.

Spoon all of the mixture out of the bowl and onto the cookie sheet and cover with a piece of parchment paper. Using a tool with a straight edge, like a ruler or a rolling pin, evenly go over the parchment paper to flatten out the cracker mixture. Be sure to get it to spread out evenly You want the mixture to be about 1/8" thick, any thinner and it will burn easily. Also, make sure that the edges are not too thin or else they will burn. The whole thing should be of uniform thickness.

Place in the preheated oven and bake until the center is no longer soft, about 15-18 minutes. However, if the edges start to burn, remove from oven.

Let it cool completely. It will continue to crisp up as it cools.

Once completely cooled, break up into cracker sized pieces.

  • I love these! I accidentally added twice as much garlic powder as suggested and so mine had more garlic "bite" than necessary, but they were still good. Now I'm excited to try these with other spices and flavors! - 1/27/13

  • The recipe itself is good. The flax seed has a bit of a bite to it. I added Mrs. Dash and a bit more salt. Overall I was very pleased. I eat my with cheese rounds and I love it with fresh guacamole or hummus. I am on a low carb diet so this is a perfect alternative! - 10/1/12

  • Delicious! I added caraway seeds. Next time, I'll reduce the sodium. It is a bit salty for me. - 4/1/12

  • These really do the trick for low carb snacks, lunches, etc... I omitted the salt, used fresh garlic, and added cayenne powder and black pepper. I also made a batch substituting cheddar cheese. It is easier to separate if you score before baking! DELICIOUS! They also freeze well! ;-)

  • SOOOOO GOOD!!! Very impressed. Not 'cardboard' texture wise at all like a lot of low-carb recipes. I added sesame seeds and a seasoning mix in place of the salt. My go-to afternoon snack! - 2/2/12

  • These are fabulous! First time I've ever made crackers, but they're so easy it's a wonder we haven't all done it. They're very nutty and you can taste the parmesan. I think I didn't roll them thin enough (well, except the edges), so I broke them apart, kept the edges out and put them back for a bit - 2/22/11
