Grain and gluten-free, these squares made with mainly onion and dry shredded coconut are best served warm right out of the oven. The caraway seed is optional. I have served them with salad or soup instead of crackers. They are also delicious with a cheese spread made by blending together 1/4 cup feta cheese (I use sheep’s milk) and 2 Tbsp. mayonnaise and some fresh, minced chives if you have them.
Makes about 20 2-inch squares
1 large yellow onion, chopped
2 Tbsp. ghee
2 cups dry finely shredded coconut
1/2 cup sesame seeds
1 egg yolk
3 Tbsp. arrowroot flour
1 tsp. sea salt
1 Tbsp. ground caraway seed (grind whole seeds in blender)
Melt ghee in skillet. Saute chopped onion for about 5 minutes over medium heat stirring a few times. Remove from heat. Place all other ingredients into a food processor. Add the sauteed onions. Process until thoroughly mixed. Place the mixture into an oiled medium-sized baking pan. Rub 1 tsp. olive oil into the palms of your hands and press the “dough” evenly so that it is about 1/4-inch thick. Bake at 300 degrees F until lightly browned and dry to the touch. Baking time will depend on the size of your pan and how thick you spread the mixture–expect about 30 minutes. Remove from oven and cut into 2-inch squares. If you want more of a cracker rather than a moist flatbread, return the pan to the oven and let them bake longer at about 250 degrees F. Monitor closely so that they don’t over-bake. Serve warm, or refrigerate for later and warm again before serving.
