As I mentioned in my Easy Grain-Free Flatbread recipe post, I was attempting to make crackers when I "accidentally" made bread instead. Good accident. But- it didn't solve my cracker problem. So back to work again. Now I've become obsessed! I've made these crackers 3 times in the past week and my flatbread everyday as well with various modifications. Why? Because it's really easy. Especially when you leave your jelly roll pan, silpat, and rolling pin out :)
So for the crackers I decided to use Chia Seed meal along with the coconut flour and I made these herb crackers by throwing in some garlic powder and Italian Seasoning blend. You can leave them out or add other flavors you might like- nutritional yeast (for a "cheesy" flavor), rosemary, cinnamon, etc...

Coconut Chia Crackers
(grain free/gluten free, dairy free, soy free, egg free, nut free, paleo)
½ cup Coconut flour
¼ cup Organic Chia seedmeal**
¾ cup Boiled Water
1/8 tsp Sea salt
1/8 tsp Granulated garlic
½ tsp Italian Seasoning**For the Chia seed meal I grind whole Chia seeds in my blender or coffee grinder into a powder and just store it in the fridge in a jar.
Pre-heat the oven to 375ºF
Using a whisk or fork, mix the dry ingredients in a bowl until well incorporated.
Add the coconut oil into the bowl.
Add the hot water a little at a time, stirring as you add it in. (This will melt the coconut oil.)
Mix well with a spoon, stirring and mashing out any lumps that might still exist. Once you have a uniform dough in a ball, place it on your silpat or unbleached parchment-paper lined tray and roll out. Keep rolling your dough until it is as thin as you can get it without seeing through or tearing it. Feel free to move pieces of dough around and press it in- the dough is forgiving and easy to "cut and paste."
Mine rolled to be approximately 14.5” x 10” in measurement. Slice into squares with a pizza cutter.
Bake for approximately 20 minutes depending on your oven. 15 minutes got me a soft bread-like cracker, 20 firm but crisp, and 25 minutes extra crispy and darker.
Makes approximately 49 crackers (at 7 rows x 7 rows)
