Quick Snack: Banana Flaxseed Crackers

Looking for a quick and easy snack with an added protein boost? Then look no further! Banana flaxseed crackers are simple to make and are totally delicious.

You only need two ingredients for this recipe:
  • 1 banana, medium in size
  • 1/2 cup flaxseed
Preheat the oven to 300 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with tin foil, or parchment paper.

Cut the banana into chunks and mash it up. I find it is easiest to mash a banana with a fork.

Once the banana is completely mashed mix in the flax seeds.

Finally once you have the banana and flax seed totally mixed together drop 1 tablespoon of batter onto the cookie sheet and press flat.

Bake at 300 degrees for 20 minutes. You will know the crackers are done because they will be slightly golden on the edges. You can enjoy hot or allow them to cool and enjoy. I keep mine refrigerated but you do not have to. 

There are so many ways to enjoy this delicious snack. Personally I like to add a little PB2 on top for even more protein. I hope you like this quick and easy snack recipe!!
