gluten-free Black Sesame Wasabi Crackers with a kick of wasabi heat

~ raw, vegan, gluten-free ~

Aaaaah wasabi!  This isn’t your typical back of throat burn, this heat comes right through the nose!!  It has a sharp flavor that’s a bit hotter than the familiar white horseradish.

Wasabi powder provides a nice change of pace from chiles.  It provides heat, but has more of an herbal overtone and dissipates more quickly.  You can also use it as a substitute for Dijon mustard, or as a flavoring in home-made mustards.

Many of the “wasabi” powder and paste products that are available in supermarkets (and even some restaurants) contain only very little or no real wasabi at all and are made of colored horseradish instead.  This is because the cultivation of real wasabi is relatively difficult and expensive.

I hope you enjoy exploring new flavors. Please comment below and let me know if you try them. Many blessings, amie sue


Yields 26 crackers ( 1 Tbsp cookie scoop)


  1. In a large bowl, whisk together almond flour, ground flax, sesame seeds, wasabi powder, and salt.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the water, sesame, and olive oil.
  3. Combine wet and dry ingredients and mix well until dough forms. I like to use my hands for this part.
  4. To make individual crackers: use the 1 Tbsp cookie scoop.
    • Pack it with the dough and wipe off the excess.
    • Drop onto either a teflex sheet or parchment paper.
    • Use a glass or container that has a completely flat bottom that is about 4″ in circumference. It helps to dip it in water.
    • Press down on the dough ball to flatten it.
    • Gently remove from the bottom of the container.  (I used a dough scraper).
    • Place each cracker on the mesh sheet that comes with the dehydrator.
  5. Dehydrate at 145 degrees (F) for 1 hour, then reduce to 115  degrees (F) for about 8+ hours or until completely dry.
  6. Once done and cooled, store in an airtight container.

    This is a bit out of topic, but I have a question about black sesame seed.

    I am trying to use black sesame seeds for my green smoothie. I plan to use a blender to grind them into fine flour form. Can i just grind them without soaking? Or I do need to soak them first before grinding.

    Thank you

    • amie-sue says:

      Hello Dave,

      The whole purpose of soaking some nuts and seeds is to reduce the phytic acid which makes it much easier for the body to absorb nutrients. If you soak them and then attempt to grind them, you will just end up with a paste. I would soak them and just add them to the blender. If you have a powerful enough blender, it should blend them down just fine with the other ingredients. Does this help?

      Have a glorious weekend, amie sue

    I made these and they were delicious! Will be adding 3x’s the wasabi next time (today) when I make them. I love me some wasabi! It seemed the kick diminished the more it dehydrated as well, so.. gonna pump it up, if my eyes don’t tear up after a couple its just not enough. Thanks for this fantastic recipe!

    • amie-sue says:
