Seed Crackers

Today I made these crackers from Averie's recipe. They are delicious, although they don't really look that spectacular - definitely not as good as hers do!  I think my batter was too dry, and that I should have had the vitamix on low, not high. I only blended the seeds for about 5 seconds, maybe even just one pulse and they were ground up majorly. I'll try it again, but for now they do taste good!

Averie's GF Vegan Sweet Seed Crackers
1/3 C Chia Seeds
1/3 C Flax Seeds
1/3 C Sunflower Seeds
1/4 C Agave (or Honey, Maple Syrup, or combo)
1/4 Tsp Allspice (or use cinnamon only or pumpkin pie spice)
1+ Tsp Vanilla Extract
2-4 Tbsp Water if needed

Blend (blender, vitamix or food processor) first 3 ingredients. Add in agave, allspice and vanilla, then water. (I think I added about 4-5 T water and needed more.  It was sticky getting it out of the vitamix and I added more water to help spread it along.) Spread on cookie sheet and cook at 300 for 30 minutes. (My edges got a little burnt). Flip (it stuck a little bit but I did use a silpat sheet) and bake the other side at 300 for 30 minutes (mine didn't make it 30 minutes and I lowered the temperature because it started to look too dark). I'll try this again - I like it more seedy.

I like the idea that this recipe is mainly seeds!

Last night's dessert was a big scoop of pecan/almond/cashew butter with a scoop of chia seeds, a scoop of flax, a swirl of agave and some oats thrown in. It was very yummy! That was followed by my favorite Whole Foods Duplex Cookies (like oreos with one vanilla and one chocolate side).

  5. Runningfood is the healthiest raw whole food on planet earth and it rocks for improving your health and performance. Apparently the Aztecs dicovered chia and they called it "Running Food". The Tarahumara Indians as described in the book " Born to Run" are ultra marathon phenoms, running for hundreds of miles at a time. Their secret of their strength and endurance is chia seed.

    Running Food Micro-Milled Chia Flour is the best product I have ever used. The products are made at a Green + manufacturing plant. The use all renewable sources of energy (solar, wind, water, geothermal, magnetic). The are the “Greenest company I have ever seen! They are an awesome company and I recommend them highly. Their staff is super smart and they treat you like gold.
