First Update: Crackers Plus An Awesome Paleo Recipe Page

Well, some nights, you just don’t really want to cook anything.  So, our dinner was a little carnitas with salsa and cheese, chicken salad, and salami with cheese, all on a plate.  Hubby went searching for crackers but since I have to consciously think of him in order to put them on the shopping list, we didn’t have any.  I could have sworn I posted some of the wonderful-looking nut recipes I’ve seen online but I hadn’t on either blog.  Here’s the post I just made about how to make your own flours: https://atkinsjourney.wordpress.com/2013/12/19/how-to-make-flour-subtitutes/

So, here are some I’ve found.  I’ll be trying some of these out tomorrow and will update this post with my thoughts.

http://www.greenkitchenstories.com/gluten-free-nut-crackers/

2 cups (300 g) of mixed nuts (we used cashew, almonds, pumpkin seeds and flax seeds)
1 egg
2 tbsp water
1 tsp sea salt

Top with: sea salt, anise seeds, nigella seeds or some other seeds of your choice.

UPDATE: 12-19-2013: O.k.  I made this today.  I used
1 cup almond flour
1/4 cup each of walnuts, sesame seeds, pistachios, and sunflower seeds (which I made into flour using my Magic Bullet)

I don’t have parchment paper, so I buttered an insulated cookie sheet and had to keep adding water to my rolling pin because these sure were sticky. I also don’t have sea salt so used kosher salt instead. They ended up with too much salt, so I think next time I will use 1/2 teaspoon in the dough and 1/2 teaspoon for sprinkling on top.

To me, with this mixture of nuts/seeds, these taste a lot like Ok Mok crackers. The sesame was surprisingly strong but you could almost make the mistake that there is whole wheat in this recipe. I like them but the final verdict will be when hubby tries them when he gets home from work. And they feel like they need oil, so I can’t wait to try the next recipe.
