These crackers are so quick and easy to bake up… But watch out, betcha can’t eat just one!
You’ll find plenty of the omega-3 fatty acid rich chia seeds in these crunchy crackers, plus they are a fantastic use of coconut flour. They are, in fact, free from any grains typically found in crackers as they were created for a client who works out 14+ hours per week but must avoid all grains, dairy and gluten due to sensitivities. That meant getting creative with options to dip in hummus and take with for snacks. However, this tasty cracker isn’t just for those with sensitivities – it’s for anyone to enjoy, even if you are able to eat grains!
Makes 2-3 servings (about 50 crackers)
- ¼ cup chia seeds
- ¼ cup + 2 Tbsp almond or coconut milk
- 1-2 Tbsp honey
- 2 Tbsp virgin coconut oil, melted
- ½ tsp sea salt
- ¼ cup coconut flour
- ¼ to ½ tsp garlic and/or herbs such as parsley, oregano, basil (optional)
- Heat oven to 350.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together the chia and milk. Let sit for 5 minutes to gel.
- Add the honey, oil and salt, and mix well.
- Fold in the coconut flour (and spices/herbs if using), let sit a minute or two (to let the coconut flour absorb the moisture).
- Turn the dough out onto a piece of parchment paper the same length as your baking sheet. Flatten the dough with your hands. Place another piece of parchment paper over the flattened dough, and roll out very thin (to pretty much the length and width of the baking sheet).
- Remove the top piece of parchment paper and using a pizza cutter or large knife, score lines into the crackers.
- Slide the parchment paper with the scored crackers onto a baking sheet.
- Bake for about 10-15 minutes (watch closely to ensure they don’t burn – it can happen fast). Remove from oven and carefully flip the crackers over. Peel off the parchment paper and return to the oven.
- Bake for another 5-10 minutes, just until golden brown (again, watch closely).
- Let cool completely and then snap into individual crackers. Store in an airtight container or bag.
To good eats and strong running… Cheers,
