2 tbsp Ground Linseed
⅓ Cup hot water
1 ½ cups Ground almonds
½ cup Tapioca starch
2 tbsp Arrowroot starch
2 tbsp Powdered Psyllium Husk
1 tbsp Coconut flour
1 tbsp Baking powder
1 tsp Sea salt
1 tsp Garlic powder
1 tsp Onion powder
1 tbsp Olive oil
1/3 - 1/2 cup water
2 tbsp Whole Linseeds
Make sure mixture is thoroughly combined
Set mixture aside to thicken for at least 5 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 195 Celsius
Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone liners
In an electric mixer bowl, whisk together the ground almonds, tapioca starch, arrowroot starch, powdered psyllium husk, coconut flour, baking powder, sea salt, garlic powder, and onion powder.
Stir in olive oil and the ground linseed slurry
Pour ⅓ cup of warm water into the flour mixture slowly and stir until combined
Let the dough rest for 5 minutes (This allows the psyllium husk powder and coconut flour time to expand and absorb the liquids in the mixture)
If the dough is still dry and crumbly, continue to add warm water, a tablespoon at a time as needed
Add water until the mixture easily comes together to form a workable dough
Stir in the whole flax seeds
Cover a clean work surface with a large piece of parchment paper
Using a rolling pin, roll out the dough in a circle until it’s thinner than ¼ of an inch thick
The dough should be very easy to handle however, if it starts to stick to your rolling pin, place another large sheet of parchment paper on top of the dough
Proceed to roll the dough out between the layers of parchment paper
Using a pizza cutter or a kitchen knife to cut the dough into long strips
These should be approximately 8-9 inches long, and ½ inch thick.
Carefully pick up one of the dough strips and twist gently about 3-5 times
Place it on one of the baking sheets.
Slightly press each end of the strip into the baking sheet to prevent it from unravelling
Continue slicing and twisting until all of the dough has been used up and divided up between the 2 large baking sheets
Bake for 15 minutes, and turn each strip over
Bake for an additional 10 minutes or until slightly golden.
Let cool completely, and enjoy!
**Do not press down the ends of the strips too hard or it might tear the strip when its time to flip them in the oven
**Feel free to use other toppings on the sticks such as Chia seeds, Sesame seeds, or even Poppy seeds.
