That means I did it. It’s done! For better or worse. I’m probably sleeping when this post publishes. Or I ran away, if it didn’t go well.

(EDIT: It did go well)

If you can’t tell, I am writing this in advance becauseeeee I plan on crying or celebrating after defending my thesis on Monday afternoon (EDIT: via Just Be Kitchen dinner followed by coin style margaritas, if we are being specific), this being published on a Tuesday!! Also, that is why this is so so short. I didn’t even think I was going to have time to write one or recipe create, but look!!!

I made these crackers whilst procrastinating cleaning my apartment, AND practicing my thesis defense….. they are great,¬†almond and nut free, crunchy counterparts. Enjoy!!


ROSEMARY¬†CHIA-HEMP CRACKERS Need: Oven, parchment paper, & food processor (makes¬†about 30 crackers) (dairy free, nut free, vegan, paleo,¬†gluten free… yada yada)
1/3 cup chia seeds

2 tbsp hemp hearts (find them here)

1 tbsp rosemary 

1/4 tsp sea salt

1/4 tsp black pepper

1/4 tsp apple cider vinegar

1 tbsp coconut flour

1 tbsp avocado oil (use Primal kitchen’s… otherwise Olive Oil)

3 tbsp water 


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Process the chia seeds, hemp hearts, and rosemary for about one minute. Transfer to a bowl. Add coconut flour, salt, and pepper. Mix in the apple cider vinegar, avocado oil, and water. Mix well, allowing the liquids to absorb.

On parchment paper, flatten the mixture to a thin layer.

Score the mixture with a knife (the shape and size of the crackers). Baked at 350 for 25-30 minutes. Until crackers are just starting to brown. After baking, remove parchment from baking sheet, and let cool. Use a rack if you have it.

After it’s cool, use those crackers for your snacking needs!! I recommend pairing them with goat cheese, or throwing them on a cheese board!

HAVE A WONDERFUL TUESDAY EVERYONE!!

And although my defense is done, I still have A LOT of work to do. Time to grind!

Ps. People always say ¬†“time to grind” in regards to work… but now I’m just picturing awkward parties from high school…. (sorry for that)
