a blogger’s dozen: daniela’s seed and nut crackers (two sweet bakers)

ImageProxy2.mvcHey guys! This week I was going to do a super long write up about my guest blogger Daniela and her amazing site, but then I realized that everything you need to know about it is in her blog name (and ad). Two Sweet Bakers is a blog that features the most delicious and the most healthiest recipes! Well, maybe not the most in the entire world, but really, who can claim to have that title? So until it is proven to me otherwise, I am giving it to today’s guest blogger. I just know that you will love this treat today. What are you waiting for? Try it out for yourselves!

ImageProxy.mvcSeed and Nut Crackers:

2 cups (300g) mixed raw nuts – you can use seeds as well (I used cashews, hazelnuts, almonds, walnuts and sesame seeds)

1 egg

2 tbsp water

1 tsp coarse sea salt

Steps:

1. Preheat the oven at 360°F / 180°C. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

2. Put the nuts in a blender or food processor and blend till the mixture resembles crumbs. Alternatively you can use a knife and chop the nuts till they resemble crumbs. This will take some time but it is still effective.

3. Add the egg and water. Stir until the mixture comes together in a quite stiff dough.

4. Place the dough directly on the lined baking sheet. Press the mixture with your hands to form a rectangle, about 0.1 inches (2-3 mm) thick. If the dough sticks to your hands, cover the dough with a piece of parchment paper on top. Now press on the parchment instead of directly pressing the dough.

5. Spray some water on top of the dough and sprinkle with sea salt.

6. Bake for about 10 minutes. Always keep an eye on the oven, they burn easily. Leave to cool, slice into rectangles and store in an air tight container. Enjoy!

ImageProxy1.mvcMy food blog is all about simple, healthy, all natural food. Sometimes I get my inspiration from the leftover ingredients I have. When I had two bags of mixed raw nuts in the kitchen, I had to do something with them. The solution? Make seed and nut crackers which have a generous sprinkling of sea salt on top. Yum! These crackers could easily become a pantry staple. They require wholesome ingredients and are super simple to make. These crackers taste amazing and are super filling so hooray!

  • Hello, friends. My name is Emory. I live on the Canadian prairies with my husband, daughter, and animals. Welcome!

  • Thank you to all those who liked, commented, and sent me messages yesterday. I am overwhelmed by your love. I would like to share one more thing. Since 2013, I have used my blog as a creative outlet and my Instagram account as my diary. I feel it’s a much better platform to reach out to others, and to be more truthful (if we dare). I try to only follow those who don’t always show the ups and highs of their “perfect” lives. While I think that the more popular, beige square, ad-infused, California chic, glam mother accounts are beautiful, I also find them to be depressing and unoriginal. A miscarriage is real. It is nothing to be ashamed of. If you don’t choose to discuss yours, that’s totally fine! I needed to share mine in order to begin my grieving and healing process. I am now a mother to two children. This is something that I did not want to, nor will I ever hide. Yes, our second child came much too early and did not survive, but that does not make his/her life any less worthy. Our baby was alive at one time. Our baby has a soul. Now, our baby has a name and will forever be part of our family. We are a family of four- three on earth and one angel in heaven. So, thanks again all. Sadness. What a difference a year can make. Last holiday season, Remy turned 10 months old. She had just gotten her first two teeth, and on Christmas morning, had learned to crawl. This year, we are mourning the loss of our second child. I suffered a miscarriage this week, and it has left a deep void in our family. This was going to be our Christmas card where we revealed to friends and family our joyous secret. Now, it remains one of our only photos as a family of four. Because of this, I want to share it with the world. Give your children an extra hug and kiss for me tonight. You are so blessed to have them. All my love, Emory.
