Onion Flax Crackers

Onion Flax Crackers from http://www.rawmazing.com/


Onion Flax Crackers

  • 2 C Flax seeds soaked at least 6 hours
  • 1 C ground flax seeds
  • 1 Sweet onion, coarsely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • 1/4 C Nama Shoyu
  • 1/2 C Hemp seeds

Place all ingredients in food processor. Process until well combined. Spread on teflex sheet 1/4 ” thick and score. Dehydrate 8 hours, flip and dehydrate until dry.....Thank You Susan! These are very delish!

Pam's changes: I didn't soak the flax seed. I put everything, except the 2 cups flax seed in the food processor and processed till minced, then placed mixture in a large bowl and added the unsoaked flax seed. I also added about 3/4 of a bag of small carrots to the food processor to be minced and added about 1/4 cup of water to the large bowl. I set the 'D' on 105 degrees.

Averie's Raw Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Balls....Rustic Style!

Averie's Raw Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Balls....Rustic Style!


*sorry the photo is so dark*

Averie's Raw Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Balls

2/3 c raw cashews
1/3 c oats
2 Tbsp Agave
1 Tbsp Maple Syrup (Omit and use Agave to preserve true Raw Status if you care)

1 Tsp Vanilla Extract
1/4 c Chocolate Chips (or to preserve true raw status, take 2 Tbsp Raw Cocoa Powder and add 1 Tbsp Agave, optional dash of vanilla extract, whisk and blend. Spread into a thin layer on wax or parchment paper, freeze. Take frozen chocolate off parchment and crumble the shreds into the mixture as your raw "chips".) * I used cacao nibs*

Recipe Yields: Approximately 17 Cookie Dough Balls

Take
Oats & Cashews and get ready to Blend in your VitaCookieMaker

After you have your Oat-n-Cashew Flour...

To it Add the Agave, Maple, & Vanilla Extract

Blend Again

Tip for Vita-Mix Users: You know you have "The Right Consistency" of Dough when the dough starts to ball up like a tennis ball and bangs around from side to side in the canister. I have learned this through trial and error and wanted to pass along my wisdom. Once you see The Ball(what I am talking about is in the above photo) start whipping around,Stop Blending. You have reached Perfect Dough Consistency Status.

Add the Chocolate Chips (or the Raw Chocolate Chips like I told you how to make)

Either Stir them in By Hand, of a 5 Second Blend in the VitaCookie (or Food Processor)

Transfer Dough Blob to plate or working surface. Tip: If for some reason your dough was too sticky, gummy, runny, or unworkable, refrigerate for a half hour and you should be back in business.

Roll Into Cute Raw Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Balls. I yielded 17 Balls from this Recipe. Clearly, not an exact science but that's what I got.

Optional Tweaks:
Add a dusting of
cocoa powder, carob powder, or powdered sugar to the finished balls
Roll in raw cocoa nibs or shredded coconut
Rather than adding in chocolate chips,
add raisins instead and add a dash of cinnamon to the batter for Oatmeal-Cinnamon-Raisin Raw Cookie Dough Balls
Flatten or mold into larger cookie shapes
Dehydrate for a more "cooked tasting" version of a chocolate chip cookie.

Thank you Averie...these are REALLY good! Averie's post here: http://www.loveveggiesandyoga.com/2009/10/raw-vegan-chocolate-chip-cookie-dough.html

Dehydrate at 140 for 30 minutes, then 116 for another 30 minutes. These should still be moist. These are SO good! (I made 10 - 6" pancakes) Thank You Susan!....http://www.rawmazing.com/
