Crackers

I wanted to make some home-made crackers (to test them out before Superbowl Sunday) and I found a basic recipe that I could use and adapt — a lot.

First, I took some ground chestnuts out of the freezer and let them thaw out. I had about 3/8th of a cup.

To this I added
  • 1.5 c spelt flour (next time I’ll be using some almond flour)
  • 1 tbsp dehydrated sprouts (lots of added nutrients!)
  • a dash or two of onion powder
Next I mixed, in a measuring cup
  • 1/2 c water
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp agave nectar

I mixed the wet ingredients into the dry and stirred it until it was a sticky ball. (I had to add several tbsp of extra water to my mix.)

Next, I rolled this out onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. I rolled it to "cracker thin".
Next, I used a pastry brush to spread the last of the water-oil mixture, from the measuring cup, across the surface of the dough.
To this, I sprinkled some more onion powder, some garlic powder, and a sprinkling of sea salt.
I used a pizza cutter to cut the dough into cracker pieces.

Then, into the pre-heated 450F oven for 12 minutes.
I then broke apart the crackers, tested them for doughiness, and popped them back into the oven for another few minutes. (3 minutes?)

And then it was the taste-test and my picky-eater LIKED THEM!!!
I served them with some tzatziki dip. I will definitely be making more of these. Quick, easy, and tester-approved.
