Try this grain-free, dairy-free snack cracker!
My daughter is obsessed with Cheez-Its.She discovered them through the snack program at her school, and now asks for them with as much impassioned pleading and cajoling and whining as she does for the latest My Little Pony. Unfortunately, she doesn’t do well with gluten and I generally try to keep her away from as much processed food as realistically I can. What’s a mom to do? Come up with her own gf/cf version, of course. Ideally grain-free as well, so mom can share the snacking.
I tried a few versions out there in the ‘sphere, and found an almond flour-based one from Delighted Momma that I really liked, and began experimenting with that one too. Right at this time, I noticed that Trader Joe’s is now carrying cashew meal! You know their great and affordable almond meal? Not quite a flour, better used in things like meatballs and such? Well, this is just as affordable, but, cashews! The light color would also work well for this recipe, and the added hint of sweetness from the cashews was perfect.
Try this whether you and yours have any restrictions or not! Be warned that they only last for about 24 hours. Not because they go bad, just because they WILL be eaten. You have been warned. Read the rest of this entry →
