Grain-Free Crackers

I am taking an online cooking class called Reversing Food Allergies from Real Foods Media. It is a cooking class that is based on the GAPS diet. There are so many good recipes! I got this recipe from it. I am currently dehydrating my crackers. I used sunflower seeds. The are not done yet, but they already taste good. Dieter didn't really like them so I will experiment with different kinds of nuts/seeds for him.

2-3 cups Nuts and Seeds, soaked and dried (Any combination of pecans, pistachios, walnut, pine nuts, sesame seeds, almonds...Flax seeds do not need to be soak/dried but should be stored in the freezer.)
1 tsp Sea Salt
1 large Egg
2 Tbsp Coconut Oil
Optional: Seeds, sea salt, chopped herbs, or grated Parmesan for the garnish

-Preheat oven to 350 degrees
-Put the nuts and seeds into the food processor and blend until it is a meal or flour. Do not overblend or you will end up with a nut butter. It should be the consistency of sand.
-Melt the coconut oil.
-Add the egg and salt and pulse until combined.
-Add the coconut oil and blend.
-Put the dough onto the Silpat-or parchment lined baking sheet. Roll it out with a rolling pin as thin as you can get it. Smooth out the edges.
-If you like, you can decorate the top of the crackers dough with seeds and/or sea salt. Chopped rosemary or other herbs, or grated parmesan would also be nice to add.
-Use a pizza cutter to cut the size of crackers you want.
-Put it in the oven for 10-15 minutes-or put it on the lowest setting in your dehydrator (and let them go until they are very crisp-they will come out crispier in the dehydrator). If using the oven, keep an eye on them to make sure they don't burn.
-Let them cool and enjoy!

Glad to see your honest about Dieter not liking the crackers. I've been considering recipes like this. Thank you for joining our Frugal Tuesday Tip. Maybe you could leave a link back to us next time.

I'm going to have to give this a whirl. The hubs didn't like the purchased nut crackers but I think I can play around with this. Thanks for stopping by my blog!
