Gluten free seed crackers

Bread is a big part of this household, but as we all know, too much of something is never good (at least not for my stomach). So I was happy to come across Happy Health Blog´s seed crackers,  and I guess I might not be the only one being happy to find a yummy substitute for bread? 

Fun fact:
Seeds are extremely beneficial for our health and sesame seeds that is part of this recipe, helps to improve heart health, digestion, improves your sleep and reduces inflammation.

So, get ready to fill the kitchen cabinet with these yummy, seed-filled crackers.

Ingredients
1,5 cup flax seeds
1,5 cup pumpkin seeds
1 cup sunflower seeds
1 cup sesame seeds
3,5 cups boiling hot water
1/4 cup coconut oil
2 cup corn flour
1 tsp salt + some to sprinkle before baking

Instructions
Start by heating the oven to 200°C. Place all the ingredients in a large bowl, pour the boiling hot water last and mix to combine. Leave for 15 minutes for flax seeds to soften and bind everything together.

Spread the mixture onto a parchment paper lined tray using a large spatula. Use another parchment paper on top to spread out the mixture thin. No higher than 5 mm. Score the mixture by pressing a sharp knife down to create lines. This will make it easier to break into evenly sized crackers after cooking.

Sprinkle with some flaky sea salt. Bake for 25-30 minutes, but remember to watch the crackers carefully the last 5 minutes, they can burn quickly. Especially if you have an uneven oven. Remove to a rack to cool and store in an airtight container.

Dinner Recipes

Vegan Zucchini Fritters

In the spirit of our previous post about getting more greens in, we thought we would share a delicious recipe to a veggie-inspired, meat-free dinner.

Yet again Happy Health Blog made us drool with her delicious dinner recipe, and these fritters are a must try! Easy to make, all vegan and a clever way to sneak in some more veggies.

Note: To avoid soggy fritters you will need a cheesecloth/nut-milk bag or thin kitchen towel in a colander over your kitchen sink.

Ingredients
Zucchini fritters:
4 cups grated zucchini + 1 tsp salt
2 garlic cloves
1 handful parsley
1/2 tsp black pepper
2 tbsp. chia flour (or flax meal) + 6 tbsp. water
1/2 cup coconut flour
3/4 cup gluten free breadcrumbs
2 tbsp. psyllium husk
1 tbsp. coconut oil
2 tbsp. olive oil

Vegan citrus yogurt:
1 cup vegan yogurt
Zest from 1 lemon
1/2 garlic clove
Salt & pepper
Olive oil

Instructions
Grate 2 big zucchinis (or enough to fill 4 cups). Add the grated zucchini to a cheesecloth/nut-milk bag or thin kitchen towel in a colander over your kitchen sink. Sprinkle with the 1 teaspoon of salt and leave to drain for 10 minutes. After ten minutes, squeeze as much liquid out of the zucchini as possible. This is a crucial step for your fritters to become firm and not soggy!

Prepare the chia eggs by mixing the chia flour and the water in a separate small bowl and leave for 3-5 minutes. Add the drained zucchini and the chia eggs to a bowl and mix in all the other ingredients until combined.

Form fritters and slightly flatten them on a baking sheet with your fingers until you get about 9 of them. Make sure to use some oil or baking paper under the fritters. Brush the fritters whit some olive oil and bake in the oven on 200°C for 15-17 minutes. Serve with the vegan citrus yogurt. Enjoy!
