Who doesn't love guacamole? If you're used to having it with celeries to avoid the calories of chips, we have an alternative chip choice that you make with healthy flax seeds! Flax Seeds are full of protein, omega-3 fats and fiber and studies have shown they may help lower cholesterol and blood pressure. So enjoy the creamy, zesty, citrus guacamole on a homemade flaxseed cracker that has incredible crunch and small spice kick. You'll never want to go back to a bag of tortilla chips again.
