31 Days of Frugal Paleo | Avocado Chicken Salad & Seed Crackers

October 11, 2013

Chicken salad and seed crackers are a "take to work" favorite lunch of mine.

Let's face it, lunch at school is one of two meals of the day that I can make girl food. 

As far as Southern tradition goes... chicken salad is girl food. 

See also, baby showers, wedding showers, and any other party thrown by women in the South. 

For the Avocado Chicken Salad recipe I'm not going to bother restating it, it's included in the pin below. 

The only thing I would add would be onion and garlic powder, but then again I live in Louisiana and we don't eat foods that don't contain onion and garlic. 

The Seed Crackers are where I make my changes... to make this a cheaper meal of course. I've also included some cooking tips that I used as well, all in pink. 

Paleo Chips (Seed Crackers)
(Adapted from Jen’s Gone Paleo)
1/4 cup Almond Flour (homemade almond meal)
1/4 cup Ground Flax Seeds
1/4 cup Sesame Seeds (you can sub 2 tbsp of the Sesame Seeds for 2 tbsp of ground sunflower seeds)
1/4 cup Ground Sesame Seeds (sunflower seeds)
1/4 cup Ground Pumpkin Seeds 
1/2 tsp Light Chili Powder
1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
1/2 tsp Onion Powder
1/4 cup Water
1 Tbl Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 tsp Kosher Salt
Preheat oven to 375 F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Mix the dry ingredients together in a bowl. Add the water and oil then evenly combine. The mixture will be sticky. Place about 1 Tbl of the mixture evenly on the baking sheet and smash with another piece of parchment paper and a rolling pin. Bake for 15 minutes, or until crisp. Transfer to a wire rack and let cool.
I baked my batch on a baking stone as well as a baking sheet, the stone gave the Seed Crackers a much better consistency. Instead of grinding your Sunflower Seeds before, just toss them in the food processor, along with everything else, except the Sesame Seeds. Mix the Sesame Seeds in at the end. I also used wax paper and a heavy glass to mush out the crackers thin enough.
