RECIPE: Spiced Oat & Coconut Crackers


Is it bad that I make oat and coconut milk now just to make these crackers? It was an experiment that I had a play with the other day and then I became addicted. You know when you reach for a savoury snack and before you know it... the whole pack is gone! Well this is what happened, so I had to make some more!

I have spoken in the past for my love of my Almond Cow nut milk maker, I mean, it's bloody brilliant for people like me who like to make their own nut milks. I will admit, it did take some time for me to find a recipe that I liked and also, please remember these are not like the ones you get in the carton. Oatly barista will always take centre stage in my heart, but for £2 a carton that lasts around 3-4 matcha lattes, I thought it was best if I found a cheaper alternative.

Anyway, I'm digressing! If you make your own nut milks, this is a great way to use up the pulp. It's super easy to do to!


WHAT YOU NEED:

  • 1 cup of nut milk pulp
  • 2 tbsp garlic oil
  • 2 tbsp ground flaxseed
  • 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 3/4 - 1 cup of flour (I like spelt for the nutty flavour it gives)
  • 3 tbsp medium curry powder
  • few teaspoons of z'attar to sprinkle on top
  • salt and pepper
METHOD
  • Cut a piece of baking paper to fit the inside of your baking tray.
  • Strain out as much liquid from the pulp as you can and add to a food processor with the all the ingredients except the z'attar and flour. Blitz together.
  • Then add 3/4 cup of flour and pulse until you get a thick, dough like consistency. Add a little extra flour if your mixture is still quite loose (this can depend on the flour you use and also how much liquid is still in the pulp).
  • Wrap the dough in cling film and leave in the fridge for 60 minutes to set.
  • When ready to cook, preheat the oven to 175 degrees and roll out the dough onto the baking paper to your desired thickness. Using a pizza cutter or sharp knife, cut the dough into squares and prick each one a few times with a fork.
  • Brush with some garlic oil and sprinkle some z'attar over the top.
  • Bake in the oven for around 20 minutes, then remove from the oven and brake the squares apart and put back in the oven again for a further 10 minutes or until crispy and golden brown.
  • Serve with some tasty dips like this hummus recipe 
I hope you give these a go. I'm thinking you could have a play around with the recipe and make sweet ones with cinnamon too... I think that's my next plan!

Stay safe,
