Tip #1

- Varying shades of brown are typical of cracker bread. Try to roll or press dough out very evenly for even browning.

Tip #2

- Flax seeds, when used as whole seeds, add texture to foods. Ground seeds give the most nutritional benefit and are a primary source of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. Flax seed is available in the health food section of the supermarket.
