Paleo, gluten-free, vegan
1 Tbls ground chia seeds
4 Tbls warm water
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 tsp chives, minced
1 tsp rosemary, minced
1 cup nut pulp (almonds or cashews work well)
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
1 Tbls nutritional yeast
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 t ground pepper
3-4 Tbls olive oil
Optional toppings: Nutritional yeast, Sesame Seeds, Sea Salt, Ground Flax
Preheat oven to 350F. Dissolve chia seeds in water and let thicken. Mix remaining ingredients and combine with thickened chia mixture. Roll mixture between two sheets of parchment until desired thickness (the thinner you roll, the crispier the cracker.) Score and bake for 20 minutes. Break, flip and return to oven for another 12-15 minutes. Crackers will crisp as they cool.
In honor of Celiac Awareness Month, we’re hosting Gluten-Free Food Fairs at select stores. While some choose a GF diet as a health preference, those with celiac disease don’t have a choice. Estimated to affect 1 in 100 people worldwide, celiac is a genetic autoimmune disorder wherein gluten damages the small intestine, interfering with the absorption of nutrients from food. Following a strictly gluten-free diet is the only known treatment. And it can be a challenge—while gluten is found primarily in foods, it also appears in products such as medicines, vitamins and lip balms.
