For a batch of 50 Gluten Free Apple Cinnamon Seed Crackers:

240 g of the basic ‘flour’ mix above (4 dl, 1 2/3 cups)
200 g unsweetened applesauce (2 dl, ¾ cup)

1 ½ tsp baking powder
Just less than 1 tsp salt (4 ml)

2. Mix all the ingredients for the basic ‘flour’ mix with a hand mixer until you have ‘quite’ a smooth basic ‘flour’.

5. Bake in the middle of the oven for about 10 minutes, until it the cracker gets a slightly golden colour.
6. Take the trays out of the oven and turn the temperature down to 50°C/ 125°F. Use a sharp knife (or pizza cutter) to cut each sheet of crackers into about 25 pieces.
