Are you often looking for ways to use up those leftover mashed potatoes from Christmas dinner? Well here’s the answer! These easy to make crackers are nutrient dense, have no additives or preservatives, and can be 100% organic should you so choose. I purchase organic spelt and make my own flour, but organic spelt flour is available at health food stores and at our Saskatoon Farmer’s Market. Choose buckwheat flour if you wish to make these gluten-free. I love these with a smear of goat cream cheese and my homemade raw salsa. Truly a meal in itself, as all of the macronutrients are there: complex carbohydrates, protein, and essential fats, and all of those healthy raw veggies!
3/4 cup organic rolled oats
3/4 cup whole grain spelt flour
1/3 cup butter or ghee for dairy-free
approximately 1 1/2 cups plain mashed potatoes (I leave the skins on!)
1. Combine the oats and the flour in a bowl.
2. Cut in butter with a pastry blender or your fingers.
3. Add mashed potatoes and knead to form a stiff dough.
4. Roll out carefully on a floured surface and cut out thin rounds using cookie cutter of choice. I made mine about 3″ in diameter.
5. Bake on parchment paper or oiled cookie sheets at 350 F. for 20 minutes or until crisp and lightly browned.
I rolled this dough very thin and made 38 crackers, but experiment for desired thickness.
