Nut flours. Ever notice how so many *healthy* grain-free/paleo recipes call for cupfuls of nut flours? Yes, nuts can be a healthy addition to a diet (if they are not an allergy, if you are at a place in your diet journey where they can be digested well, and if you don’t need to limit oxalate or even salicylates or histamines in some cases) – but, let’s face it, if you are here looking for grain free recipes you very possibly fall into one of those aforementioned categories.
These crackers are coconut flour based, so you can keep your oxalate levels low, your salicylate levels lower than if using almond flour, and they are perfect for my little canaries at my house!

GRAIN FREE TABLE CRACKERS
3 Tablespoons Nutiva Palm & Coconut Oil Shortening (you can buy it here)**
1/2 cup coconut flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon Apple Cider Vinegar
1/2 teaspoon real salt (plus more for tops)
1 teaspoon water if needed
[ **You could substitute with straight coconut oil if you had to, but the palm shortening really works best.]
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
In a mixing bowl, mix together the shortening, egg, vinegar, coconut flour, and baking soda. Your batter should be a crumb that can be pressed together, like a pie dough. If it is still on the dry side, you can add a little water until it comes together nicely.
Roll the dough out between two sheets of parchment paper. Cut into desired shapes. Place onto a parchment lined baking sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes or until the edges start to brown and the crackers are crisp.
Enjoy with your favorite snack cracker topping!
This is a very basic recipe, so the sky is the limit with the flavor combinations you could try as additions.
