Spiced Holiday Smoothie

Something about cold weather doesn’t just make us pull out the fleece blankets and grab a big fluffy cat for extra warmth. It makes us slow down and start taking time to look a little deeper.

Cardamom Sesame Crackers

Cardamom Sesame Crackers

Here is another way to use up all that almond pulp. You can also try  my Carob Sesame Crackers or Spicy Sesame Crackers.

 Cardamom Sesame Crackers (Using Almond Pulp)

¾ cup packed almond pulp (freshly strained)

1 tbsp. coconut oil, melted

¼ tsp. sea salt

1 tbsp. coconut nectar

3 tbsp. ground flaxseed

5 tbsp. sesame seeds

1/8 tsp. cardamom

1/8 tsp. cinnamon

Preheat oven to 375 F.

Mix all ingredients in a food processor until well blended.

Press dough between 2 pieces of parchment paper and roll out to about 1/8th inch thick. Try to get it fairly uniform. Transfer dough and paper to baking sheet. Cut dough into squares but do not try to separate. Bake 10 – 15 minutes, until slightly brown. Let cool and separate the crackers.

Notes:

  • Honey may be used instead of coconut nectar.
