Sweet Potato Paleo Crackers

SweetPotatoCrackers

I was looking for a cracker that was Gluten Free, didn’t contain Corn and tastes great but wouldn’t set me back 10 bucks if I ate a big box of   RW Garcia Sweet Potato Crackers

Luckily I found Sarah’s recipe.  I replaced the Garlic Salt with Roasted Garlic and added Nutritional Yeast and spices.  Click on this Sweet Potato Paleo Crackers PDF to see the tweaks and the measurements for double and triple recipes.

You can roll out the dough on parchment paper and  transfer to a cookie sheet.  I have tried it the lazy way and rolled directly on my large rectangular pizza stone. I cut it with a pizza cutter, pierced with a fork.  The dough is not as thin as it should be  so I had to flip them over to make sure I got a crispy result.

Here’s a link explaining the difference between Yams and Sweet Potatoes…it’s confusing.  But I have successfully used Sweet Potatoes, Yams and Kabocha Squash separately or in tandem with great results. They’re more nutritious than Potatoes but nonetheless  starchy veggies so try not to rack up your Carb Count.

Coconut Flour Tortillas

Pliable Coconut Flour Tortilla

Coconut Mama’s Coconut Flour Tortilla

Coconut Mama’s recipe moniker is a bit misleading, but these Coconut Flour Tortillas are fantastic for Burritos and Sandwich Wraps.   It’s so easy to make these tasty & pliable Tortillas. I’m holding one, ready to fill it with Chicken Salad,  Fajita or Taco Mix.  You can add Vanilla to this versatile batter to make Dessert Crepes too.

Tiffany makes 8″ Tortillas, cooking both sides till golden brown.  I ladle enough batter to cover a 9″ crepe pan on medium heat.  I  cook them just long enough so I can flip them, then lower the heat to finish the other side.  Both sides are light with toasted Flax Seed Meal flecks.

Cool on wire racks and separate the Tortillas with wax paper or parchment paper.  If you don’t use them all, place them in a bag or container in the fridge.

I added another column in the Coconut Flour Tortillas PDF if you want to start with half a recipe.

GF Super Soft Dinner Rolls

This is the best gluten free recipe in terms of white bread texture ! It’s light, fluffy and it’s so amazing, the Gluten Free & MORE! Magazine posted Carol Kicinski’s GF Super Soft Dinner Roll recipe on their web site.  You won’t have to substitute a single thing, albeit she offers an egg-free version.  You can use any kind of Milk.  I used a can of Coconut Milk and Unsweetened Almond Milk.  I’ve had success with both hand and machine mixing.  

Just like Jamie Oliver’s GF Yorkies, the key is White Rice Flour and Glutinous Rice Flour which can be bought at most retailers or online. The Erawan Rice and Tapioca Flours at my local Asian grocery store are only $1.50 for 400 grams.

The recipe yields 24 rolls.  I filled 2 large silicone muffin trays, so my 12 rolls are twice as big!  My Kitchen Aid oven has a bread proofing setting.  I don’t cover them as they double in height.  After they rise,  remove from the oven.  Crank up to 375 degrees and set it for 18 minutes.  If it gets too dark, just tent with foil.

After they cool for 15 minutes you can wrap it up, store and reheat in a 350 degree oven.  Its odd that this recipe uses 2 Tbsp Yeast and 1 Tbsp Baking Powder…which can be next to impossible to buy in stores or on-line during the COVID-19 crisis.  I’ve had success substituting half the Yeast with 100 grams of Wild Yeast Starter (similar to Sour Dough Starter).
