Isn’t the Internet amazing? Not only can you diagnosis any ailment through Dr. Google (I’m not advising you to do so) but you can find copy cat recipes for your favorite foods. I found 3 copy cat recipes for Mary’s gluten free crackers. Whole Foods carries them for $4.70 a box. Costco also carries them for less. A box is usually gone in a week at my house so I wanted to make them myself. Melissa at My Whole Food Life posted an easy to follow recipe which I am reconfiguring here. The original copy cat recipe is at www.mywholefoodlife.com, please stop by and say Hi.
• 1 cup brown rice cooked
• 1 cup quinoa cooked
• 1/4 cup sesame seeds
• 1/4 cup flax seeds
• 1/4 cup chia seeds
• 1/4 cup water
• 1 teaspoon sea salt
• 1 teaspoon ground pepper
• 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
• 1/4 cup finely grated Parmesan cheese, reserve for topping the crackers. Leave off the cheese if you want vegan crackers.
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
2. Cook brown rice and quinoa separately until soft but not mush.
3. Combine rice, quinoa in food processor until mushy
4. Add remaining seeds, pepper, dash of salt and the Italian seasoning. Processed until a ball forms. You will still see the whole seeds.
5. Roll 1/2 of the dough between parchment paper and plastic wrap until very thin almost translucent.
6. Sprinkle with sea salt and parmesan cheese.
7. Score uncooked dough with a pizza cutter into desire shapes.
8. Repeat with the second 1/2 of the dough
9. Bake on parchment on a cookie sheet 15 minutes. Carefully turn parchment paper with crackers over onto the baking sheet and return to the oven for 15 minutes. Remove pan from oven and break crackers into scored pieces and return to the oven for an additional 10 minutes until desired crispness.
