    Why Grape seed oil, I thought that was not that good either, as it usually is chemically extracted?
    Better would be coconut oil or olive oil I would have thought.

      Grapeseed oil if “cold expeller-pressed” is very good for you & can be used for all sorts of things. Very healthy oil (stay away from Rapeseed or Canola oils)…Coconut is also very good!
      I use both on my skin, as well.

    Can I suggest stepping away from all “canned,” tetrapac, & plastics…ie BPA ~ If it has a “shelf-life,” it will shorten yours…

    Is there an alternative to chickpeas? We have a bunch of allergies, all of which I can think of subs for, except chickpeas! Maybe potatoes (hashbrowns)? Cauliflower? Thoughts?

    No eggs or dairy or soy for me. (Mary’s Gone Crackers has soy.) I’m going to try this with ground chia (for eggs), quinoa flakes (for crackers) and coconut milk kefir. Since the crackers would have added some nice herbs and aromatics I will also add some minced garlic and some spice like a pinch of cayenne…. oh, now I can’t wait to try this. :-)
