View Full Version : Nut Crackers
02-13-2007, 01:36 PM
I tried to find the post on alternatives to flax seeds for crackers. Couldn't so I started a new one. I just wanted to share this: I wanted to do the crackers and didn't have walnuts, so I substituted a mix of hazelnut and brazil nuts that I did have on hand and I didn't have zuchinni on hand so I substituted butternut squash from my garden I had stored. Mixed it up following the directions for the nut crackers and dehydrated them. Then I had some frozen tomatoes thawing, which were from my garden last year as well. Threw them in the dehydrator and when they were sort of have dried and warm.....smeared some on my nut crackers and OMG! so good..........Now, I took some dehydrated tomatoes with a little fresh garlic and a little water and mixed it up in my little food processer and smeared that on one of my crackers.........so good. I think this is just a beginning of what you can do with these little gems. I, as well, didn't care for the flax seed cracker and pretty much tried to do without the cracker, well, not anymore. Thanks for the insight! :D ;) :rolleyes:

oh wow!! sounds delish...
i tried something new today as well...in time for valentine's i might add... :rolleyes:
i had tried to make nut bars...like a granola bar. someone had suggested marinating soaked almonds in honey and cinnamon. i threw in walnuts and dried cranberries as well. i had tried forming them into bars after processing and dehydrating them, but they didn't stick too well, sort of tasted like "granola"...so...
i tried something different-truffles!!! i added a little extra honey, formed them into balls, melted some raw chocolate and rolled them in the melted chocolate. i then sprinkled leftover "granola" over them or unsweetened powdered cocao. i stuck them in the freezer for a little while until the chocolate hardened.
we tried a couple just a while ago
"...oh...my...gawd" is all he could say.

found this great idea from Terra Bella Cafe in cal. (terrabellacafe.com)
2 cups soaked sunflower seeds
1/4 c dehydrated onion
1/2 c ground flax seeds
1 tsp sea salt
dash namo shoyu
they are amazing! This is part of her Bruschetta recipe-I just improvised from how she describes her crackers. Now I can't wait to try to duplicate the tomato topping!! YUM!
