GLUTEN FREE VALENTINE BEET CRACKERS


These bright red crackers contain no artificial flavors or colors. They are beet and onion crackers, and though absolutely delicious with a mild cheese spread, even one as budget-conscious as Laughing Cow, they would also be delightful with a mature brie. These almond-oatmeal crackers are as crunchy as they are colorful, and certainly won't be seen at every Valentine's Day celebration. Be the first on your street, as they say. Here's how:

Ingredients:

1 c almond flour
1c gluten free oatmeal, ground in food processor till powdery.
1 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar
3 T olive oil
4 T water
2 T beet powder
1 T onion flakes
1 egg white

Instructions:

Mix oats with almond flour, salt, sugar, onion flakes and beet powder. Beat egg whites, oil and water with a fork, then slowly add wet ingredients to dry until a ball is formed. Divide in four parts. Flatten one ball on a sheet of parchment, then cover with a second sheet. Roll out to 1/8 inch thick). Remove top parchment paper and cut dough with cookie cutter. Chill in freezer for a moment if dough becomes hard to handle. Place hearts on baking sheet. Bake until crisp, about 20 minutes.
