Have you been trying to lose weight like me but find it difficult to curb the hunger between meals?

One of my New Years resolutions this year is to lose a few pounds and I think this recipe will help.

These tasty crackers are gluten free and full of fiber and nutrients!

There's no white flour and no white sugar in this recipe.

I made 1/2 of my crackers with dried cranberries and the other half without.

I like to make a batch on the weekend and then I can just grab a bag out of the freezer on my way out the door, this keeps me from snacking on unhealthy food at work.

I make my own quinoa flour and brown rice flour by grinding the whole grains in a coffee grinder I purchased specifically for this.

Step 1: Ingredients

You will need the following:


2 cups Quinoa flour

2 cups Brown rice flour

1 whole Sweet potato

2 large eggs

3 Tablespoons molasses (or honey)

1/3 cup Raisins or dried cranberries

1 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

1/4 cup olive oil

You can add chopped pecans if you like.

Step 2: Cook Sweet Potato

Peel sweet potato. Cut up and place in glass bowl.
Cover with water.
Microwave for 8-10 minutes until soft.

Allow to cool for 30 minutes.

Measure out 2 cups cooked, drained sweet potato.

Step 3: Blend

In blender add 1/4 cup olive oil, 3 tablespoons molasses and 2 large eggs.

Blend for 30 seconds.

Add 2 cups blended sweet potato.

Blend well for 1 minute.

Step 4: Mix Together

In a large mixing bowl, place 2 cups brown rice flour and 1-1/2 cups quinoa flour. (or the other way around)

You will need 3-1/2 cups flour total.

Add 1/2 tsp salt and 1 tsp baking soda.

Stir well.

Add the sweet potato/egg mixture.

Stir with large spoon until blended. Add another spoon of quinoa flour if the dough is sticky.

At this point, stir in 1/3 cup raisins or dried cranberries and/or chopped pecans if you choose.

Step 5: Roll Out Dough

Place a tablespoon of remaining flour on counter.

Take 1/2 the dough and place on counter.

Sprinkle a spoonful of quinoa flour over top of dough.

Roll out dough until 1/8" thick.

Cut into 2" squares with a pizza cutter and poke with fork.

Step 6: Bake

Place crackers on lightly greased cookie sheet.

Bake in 350 oven for 8 minutes.

Repeat with remaining dough.

Makes approximately 7 dozen crackers.

Allow crackers to cool, and place 1 dozen in each quart size bag.

If your going to keep them for more than a couple of days, place them in the freezer.

There are approximately 40 calories in each cracker.

High in fiber, and eating just 2 or 3 will curb that hunger until dinner time!
