Which category of food?

Question:

Which category of food would these crackers fall into with these ingredients? :

organic spelt wheat, organic flax seeds, sea salt

If one ate them in place of bread and had enough for a meal, would that change things?

thank you

Answer:

From what you are writing it sounds like it is mezonos. However if you will eat enough cookies as you would eat for a real meal then the bracha would be hamotzei.

Best wishes

It is controversial how much has to be eaten it order to have to have to wash and make hamotzei, some say 4 eggs worth and some say that it is the amount that one would eat if a main meal was eaten only with bread. That is why it is best to just avoid getting into the issue and not eat more than 8 ounces at one time.
