Don’t be confused by these gluten free Multi “Grain” Crackers. Because they are in fact gluten free and grain-free. That’s right, these crackers don’t contain grains. What are they made of? They contain a multitude of high protein, high fiber superfoods including almonds, flax and hemp.
So as you can see, even though these are called Multi “Grain” Crackers, I have not started eating grains again. And yes, I’ve been grain free since 2001, on an eating plan (don’t like the word diet) that is similar to those referred to as Paleo or Primal.
Makes about 25 crackers
The idea for these gluten free crackers is from my dear friend Betsy. She came over one Saturday afternoon last November so that we could go for a hike. We did, and then we set out to bake our way through my kitchen.
These crackers were the first thing we made. It was a lot of fun because Bets (that’s her nickname), cooks the way I used to, before I started cooking for all of you. She just throws ingredients around without any measurements and says things like, “a few handfuls of this,” and “a lot of that.” I translated her handfuls and throws into exact measurements and then made the crackers a few more times to get them exactly the way I wanted.
