green crackers

6 Apr

eli loves these because they’re green, his favorite color. i borrowed this recipe from diet, dessert, and dogs. these are a new lunch box favorite for me because they are a cinch to make. it seems to be a very versatile recipe, that can be made according to what you have on hand, my favorite kind of recipe.

green crackers

3/4 cup cashews
1/4 cup flax meal
1/4 cup gf flour
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 generous cup green stuff, i used cilantro, spinach, and a little fresh jalepeno
2 tbs coconut oil, melted
2-3 tbs water

375º
line cookie sheet with parchment paper,dust with flour, set aside. in bowl of food processor grind cashews and flax meal into a fine meal. add flour, salt and baking soda give it a whirl to combine. add the green stuff, oil and water whirl until mixture forms a soft dough. roll directly onto cookie sheet to desired thickness. slice into crackers with pizza cutter and bake for 15 mins. remove from oven and flip them over carefully then return to oven for another 15 mins.

*note* watch these as they cook. most of the time i only have to cook these 10 min then flip for 10 more minutes. sometimes i don’t even need to bake longer than 15 mins on one side.

    I’m so glad you both like the recipe! 😀 I think yours are a bit more green than mine were–I love the color! And I agree, the recipe can be infinitely adapted.
