Day 28 - And I'm about to make some crackers...

... don't worry, they're not wheat ladened ones, these are Elly's Linseed Bread with added nuts and cheese ones.  Judy says its a fairly flexible recipe and I can throw in it whenever I have to hand... so here goes...

100 gm ground linseed
25 gm ground almonds
50 gm walnuts, broken roughly
1 tablespoon sunflower seeds
1 tablespoon pumpkin seeds
1 tablespoon sesame seeds
2 tablespoons wheat bran
2 tablespoons flaked almonds (if you don't want to use seeds just add more almonds and walnuts)
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon onion granules [or ~ 1/3 tsp. onion powder]
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
100 gm cheese (e.g. strong cheddar, stilton, parmesan)
2 tablespoons plain protein powder (only if you have it)
2 eggs, large
3 tablespoons peanut or light olive oil
about 4 tablespoons water (you may need to add more when you have added the dry ingredients if it is too stiff)

Mix all the dry ingredients together; whisk egg, water and oil in a bowl, then add dry ingredients and mix well.
Place in a plastic food box, I use one that is 19 x 12 cm. (7 1/2 X 4 3/4 inches)
Microwave for 3.5 to 4 minutes. Turn out onto rack and leave to cool.
Slice when cold - I get 20 slices from mine - and spread out on baking tins. [Judy's note: I only got 18 slices; will slice thinner next time.]
Dry out in a cool oven (about 200 F) (93 C) until crispy.
A long time at a low temperature is better than a short time at a high temperature for taste.

These keep for ages in a clip and lock box so are handy standbys. Don't be put off by the smell when they come out of the microwave, once they are oven baked they are delicious. As I said, the quantities are to taste, so experiment to find out your favourite. Enjoy, Elly
