Ingredients:

Crackers:

  • 3 ripe bananas
  • 1 cup flaxmeal
  • ¼ cup sesame seeds

Chia Jam:

  • ½ teaspoon coconut oil
  • 2 cups strawberries, top removed, berries quartered
  • Juice of ½ lemon
  • 2-4 drops stevia
  • 3 tablespoons chia seeds

Directions:

Crackers:

  1. Peel bananas and break them into several smaller pieces. Add then to a mixing bowl and mash using a potato mashed or a fork, until smooth (or as smooth as possible!)
  2. Add flaxmeal and sesame seeds and mix well. Let sit for 15 minutes (preheat the oven to 350 degrees F)
  3. Line a baking tray with parchment paper.
  4. Using a spoon, scoop a little bit more than ½ a tablespoon of batter and place it on the baking sheet. Gently flatten into a ¼ “ thick round, about 2” in diameter. Repeat this process with the remaining batter, placing crackers cloth together but not touching. The goal is to have about 36 crackers.
  5. Bake for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and flip each cracker over. Bake for an addition 8-12 minutes, or until just starting to brown and crisp up. (Prepare chia jam while crackers are baking)
  6. Allow to cool to room temperature and then transfer to an air tight container or zip lock bag. Store in the fridge.

Chia Jam:

  1. Heat coconut oil in a medium sauce pan over low. Place berries in sauce pan and cook until berries are heated through and start to become soft (around 8 minutes). Remove from heat and transfer to a mixing bowl.
  2. Mash the berries using a fork. Add in remaining ingredients and stir to incorporate. Transfer to a sealable jar or air tight container and store in the fridge.
  3. To serve, enjoy about 6 crackers with ¼ cup jam
