From "The Everything Raw Food Cookbook." My kids call these "pizza crackers," as they have an almost cheesy flavor. Cooking time included soaking and dehydrating time. **NOTE: You need a dehydrator for this recipe**

  6. Dehydrate at 145F for 2 hours.

I love this recipe. I'm attempting to greatly reduce the amount of wheat in my diet and was looking for a tasty bread replacement. I have made these crackers twice and love the flavour of the tomatoes and basil. I adjusted the temp - 115deg for 4hrs initially, then an extra 10. I had some trouble processing the mix after adding the flax meal, but they still came out well. I probably need to upgrade my processor!!
