What if I use olive oil instead of Coconut oil? It contains saturated fatty acids.
You can read here why I don’t recommend cooking at high temperatures with olive oil: https://draxe.com/nutrition/healthy-cooking-oils/. I hope this helps!
What are Mary’s gone crackers I’m in the uk and never heard of them pls help Tia
Gluten free, organic, non GMO crackers
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. :-)
Sounds great! Let us know how that substitution works!
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?
Hmmm…Maybe black beans?
Or white/navy beans?
Can I use coconut milk instead of kefir & goats milk? Like I said before I am ALERIGIC to all dairy.
Can I suggest stepping away from all “canned,” tetrapac, & plastics…ie BPA ~ If it has a “shelf-life,” it will shorten yours…
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.
Sounds delicious but I’d use virgin coconut oil and bake them instead of grape seed oil to fry.
The recipe doesn’t call for grape seed oil. ?????
Where are you getting that from?
