These raw coconut flour crackers are a simple base for spreads and nut cheeses, similar to a water cracker.
Coconut flour is a helpful ingredient in the raw vegan kitchen for making breads and crackers. It has a number of characteristics that are quite different than baking with the traditional wheat or other grains. The biggest difference is that coconut flour is very dry, it will absorb a much greater amount of liquid. This means that to convert your recipe to one with coconut flour is difficult. One thing is for sure, it will require more liquid ingredients than the original recipe.
On the positive side, coconut flour is a high fiber, low fat, gluten free flour option.
If you do not have a dehydrator, you will need to let these dry on the lowest oven setting for a few hours. Each oven is different so keep an eye on it checking every hour after the first few hours.

Question. When and where do you add the 4 T EVOO? What if i want to use eggs instead of the ground chia/flax seeds? How may?
In the Add Wet Ingredients to the dry step. That amount of chia is approximately 1 egg.
What is EV00?
Extra Virgin Olive Oil. A phrase coined by Rachel Ray… Sorry for the confusion.
Should the chia seeds be measured at 1 tbsp and then grounded or already grounded?
Either way is fine.
