  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. In a medium bowl, combine flaxseed, flour, baking powder, 1/4 teaspoon salt, pepper, onion powder, 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder and oregano. Combine milk and oil and add to dry ingredients. Stir until ingredients are moistened and use hands to lightly knead together into a ball. Flatten dough and roll out between 2 sheets of waxed paper to a 9 inch square about 1/8 inch thick. Cut dough into 1&fract12 inch squares and place on an ungreased baking sheet.
  2. Bake for 12-15 min or until lightly browned around edges. Remove from oven and sprinkle crackers with remaining salt and garlic powder. Cool on wire rack and store in an airtight container. Makes 36 crackers.
