1/4 cup flax seed
1/4 cup ground flax seed
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
4 tsp margarine or butter, softened
1/2 cup skim milk


1. In a bowl of a stand-up mixer, add flax seed, ground flax, flour, baking powder, salt and margarine or butter. With the paddle attachment, mix on low speed until the mixture resembles a coarse meal.

2. Stir in milk and mix until mixture forms a soft dough. (You can also mix the dough by hand.)

3. Wrap dough in plastic wrap and chill 10 minutes.
4. Divide the dough into quarters. Turn out onto a lightly floured board. Roll out very thin to a rectangle 2 mm (1/16 inch) thick. Cut into 6 cm (2 inch) squares.

5. Transfer to an ungreased baking sheet.

6. Repeat with the remainder of the dough.

7. Preheat oven to 160° C (325° F).

8. Bake 20 minutes until crisp and golden.
