Ingredients

  • 1 cup 225 ml (110 g) almond flour
  • 2 tbsp 2 tbsp (20 g) sunflower seeds
  • 1 tbsp 1 tbsp (10 g) golden flax meal
  • 1 tsp 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ¼ tsp ¼ tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp 2 tbsp water
  • 1 tbsp 1 tbsp coconut oil
Serving
  • 6 cups 1.5 liters unsweetened almond milk

Instructions

Instructions are for 6 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C).
  2. Blend together almond flour, sunflower seeds, flax meal, cinnamon, and salt in bowl or preferably in a food processor to finely chop the sunflower seeds.
  3. If using a food processor, pulse in the water and coconut oil until dough forms. If blending by hand, stir the liquid ingredients into dry ingredients to form a dough.
  4. Place the dough ball on a sheet of parchment paper and press flat. Cover with another sheet of parchment paper and roll dough to about 1/8 to 1/16 inch (1.5 - 3 mm) thickness.
  5. Put on cutting board, remove top parchment paper, and cut into 1-inch (2.5 cm) squares using a pizza cutter or knife.
  6. With the parchment paper still on the bottom, transfer the cut dough onto a baking sheet. Bake until edges are brown and crisp (about 10-15 minutes). Allow to cool on a rack then separate squares into individual pieces.
  7. Serve plain for snacking or enjoy in a bowl with unsweetened almond milk or other low-carb, unsweetened nut milk.

    Just made this recipe to use more as a snack than a cereal. Would add a little more cinnamon next time and a bit of sweetener I think. Have a nice crunch and if you switched out cinnamon with ginger it would make a lovely ginger snap biscuit

    Can the flax be swapped with anything? Not keen on the flavour it gives.

    You could try omitting the flax but we have not tested this recipe without it or with a substitute.
