Crunchy Nut Seed Fruit Combo Bites or Bars

This recipe is a favourite and can resemble a crunchy nut and seed fruit bar or equivalent bite sized snack. When I make the bars, I tend to spread the ingredients into a thickness similar to a museli bar but when I like to make smaller bite sized pieces, I spread the ingredients further to […]

Instructions
  1. You may wish to lightly grind some of the nuts to break them up a little but they can be left as they are
  2. Soak all seeds and nuts overnight and rinse them under filtered water in a sieve
  3. Combine and mix all ingredients with your hands or a big spoon in a bowl
  4. The flax seed may need a little more draining in a sieve before you add them to the remaining of the ingredients. These will work as a binding agent to keep all your ingredients together.
  5. When all is combined simply spread the ingredients on a dehydrator sheet (1 cm thick) and Dry at 135 degrees F or 57 ◦C for 20-24 hrs
  6. You may dehydrate for longer if you want a crispier result or intend to make thicker nut/seed bars
  7. When completed, simply break into bite size snacks or cut specific portions with a knife. You may also wish to break it up further to make a muesli mix for breakfast with your yoghurt.
  8. You can explore any nut fruit and seed combo that you desire. Enjoy!

GAPS Ginger Cookies

Instructions
Preparation
  1. Preheat oven to 150˚C and prepare one large or two medium stainless steel trays by lining them with (bleach free) baking paper.
Mixing and Baking the Cookies
  1. Add all the ingredients into a bowl (except for the desiccated coconut and bicarbonate of soda).
  2. Mix the mixture with electric beaters or other mixer/thermomix. I used electric hand held beaters for this recipe.
  3. When well combined, add the desiccated coconut and add the bicarbonate of soda last.
  4. Spoon a tablespoon of mixture neatly onto the prepared lined baking trays and pat gently with the flat of one finger so that the mixture resembles a rounded semi-flat shape.
  5. Place the baking tray into the preheated oven and bake for 15 minutes. Do not be tempted to cook longer than this as the cookies will burn. If your oven tends to cook quickly, you may want to remove them sooner. The edges and tops should be browned but not burnt.
  6. Once removed from the oven, carefully slide the liner off the tray and onto a cooling tray with the cookies still in place. Let them cool this way for ten minutes to allow the cookies to cool. DO NOT try to pick them up as they will be soft and fall apart.
  7. When they are cool to touch and are becoming more solid, remove the paper lining under the cookies so that the bottoms don’t sweat. Allow the cookies to cool for a further 20 – 30 minutes on the cooling tray.
  8. The cookies will be light, airy and soft to eat. If you like them like this, you may store them in an air tight container. They will be soft to eat similar to a cake like consistency. They can be kept fresh for a week
Recipe Notes

The Excalibur food dehydrator is the best on the market.  I have had mine for ten years and it is still going strong. We have a few Excalibur Dehydrator options available at GAPS Diet Australia based on affordability and specification.  If you do purchase one, I highly recommend the one with a timer.  This helps greatly when dehydrating food on an ongoing basis.

GAPS Approved Raising Agents for Baking

The GAPS diet does not allow baking powder or raising agents of any kind apart from pure bicarbonate of soda, otherwise known in USA as baking soda. (Use sparingly for people who have very low stomach acid). Egg whites (albumen) are especially good as a mechanical raising agent and for both soufflé and mousse the […]

Instructions
  1. Bicarbonate of soda is a pure leavening agent. It needs to be mixed with moisture and an acidic ingredient for the necessary chemical reaction to take place to make food rise. Because it needs an acid to create the rising quality, it is often used in recipes where there is already an acidic ingredient present, such as lemon juice, cocoa, yoghurt or honey. Baking Powder should be avoided as it contains additional non GAPS allowable ingredients.
  2. People who have very low stomach acid may need to avoid Bicarbonate of soda for a while and egg whites may be used for an alternative raising agent. Simply whisk the egg whites into soft fluffy peaks before adding to the mix.

Almond Flour Replacement/Alternatives

Almond flour is commonly used in many of the GAPS baking recipes, however these recipes can be substituted with other flours made from seeds. Almond Flour Replacement/Alternatives • Sunflower seeds ground into flour (remember to soak them first for 12 hours) • Pumpkin seeds ground into flour (remember to soak them first for 12 hours) […]

Instructions
  1. Bring a small pot of filtered water to the boil
  2. Place your raw almonds into the boiling water and let sit for half an hour. They will swell and appear larger.
  3. Drain the almonds in a colander or strainer and rinse them with cold water to cool them
  4. Blot the almonds dry with a tea towel
  5. Use your fingers to gently squeeze the almonds and loosen the skin from them. They usually just slip right out.
  6. Dry nuts as per activated nut instructions
  7. Store in an airtight container in the fridge
Recipe Notes

Whilst it is true that it requires more work, blanching almonds can be easier on the digestive system for severe food sensitivities than simple soaking, however blanching almonds may not be required for everyone.  It is a preferred method for making almond milk for those who are more prone to food sensitivities as this will completely remove the phytates.  Removing the husks on almonds also make for a nicer homemade almond milk.  It is very unlikely that commercial nut milk producers will have taken the time to activate their nuts or remove the husks, not to mention any additives and preservatives within the product ingredients.

Instructions
Preparation and Soaking
  1. After you have frozen the liver for two weeks prepare your liver by soaking it. Simply add the liver to a glass bowl and pour the kefir over the top making sure it is all covered and place it in the fridge for 4 hours or overnight. This will help to remove any impurities, tenderise the liver and improve the flavor of the liver.
  2. When soaking is complete, wash the liver to remove the kefir with filtered water.
Liver Pate
  1. Heat oil/fat in pan and add onion, celery and garlic and sauté for 1 minute
  2. Add liver and sauté till opaque
  3. Add herbs if selected and let cool
  4. Transfer to the blender and remaining oil/fat and blend till smooth
  5. Transfer to glass container and refrigerate
  6. Add melted ghee or lard over the top to create a skin to preserve the colour. Sprinkle a little herbs over the top for garnish if you wish.
  7. Alternatively transfer mixture to ice cube trays and freeze
Recipe Notes

Clinical Notes

Another way to supplement with liver if you do not like the flavour of pate is to freeze it raw and cut them into small capsule sizes and swallow them whole like a capsule.  This way you will not taste the liver as it is swallowed whole.  If you do this option, be sure to freeze the liver for two weeks first.

Activating Nuts/Seeds for Flour

What are Activated Nuts? Activated nuts have been soaked in water and salt for a period of time, which starts off the germination or sprouting process, then dehydrated at a low temperature. Soaking increases the nutrient value of the nuts along with breaking down the problematic compounds that help enhance their digestibility. Nuts and Seeds […]

Instructions
  1. In a large bowl place your nuts or seed of choice.
  2. Dissolve salt in enough water to cover the amount of nuts/seeds you are activating.
  3. Cover with the salt water solution.
  4. Soak the nuts or seeds for the specified time according to the chart below (see soaking time chart)
  5. Strain and rinse the nuts when the specified time has lapsed.
  6. Spread the nuts or seeds over a dehydrator rack, or baking tray.
  7. Place in the oven on a low heat (90 degrees) or dehydrator until completely dry and the moisture is removed. The dehydrator is a longer drying process but helps to keep activated nuts active. The oven can stop the germination process, however it will get the job done in drying the nuts and seeds after they enzyme inhibitors have been removed.
  8. Eat the activated nuts as they are or make flour from them by grinding the nuts in a strong blender like a vitamix or thermo until you have a flour like consistency.
  9. Store nuts, seeds or nut flours in an air tight container.

Clinical Notes

Try fermenting nut/seed flour or nut/seed milk if nuts and seeds continue to be a bit of a problem.

Recipe Notes

Clinical Notes

Nuts and Seeds are fibrous and should not be introduced for GAPS patients until digestive symptoms have shown some signs of improvement. The introduction diet provides a slow introduction to nuts by starting with nut butter followed by baking with nut flour and finally nuts for snacks themselves with encouragement to prepare them and chew them well. The sensitivity test is advised to be carried out first for those who suspect a true nut allergy, however there are many people who express their intolerance for nuts during the introduction diet who may need to determine themselves whether to wait until further healing takes place before introducing them.

Selecting organic nuts and seeds and preparing them by soaking and sometimes blanching them (skins removed) often makes all the difference for a GAPS patient to better tolerate them.  Many GAPS patients have a toxic overload and cannot tolerate even the smallest amount of chemicals or pesticides in their system and this is why organic serves to be a better option.

In addition to crop chemicals, nuts and seeds contain their own toxic substances known as enzyme inhibitors and phytates (phytic acid).  These toxins can play havoc in the digestive system, blocking nutrients such as calcium, magnesium, copper iron and especially zinc.  Enzyme inhibitors in particular, are contained on the skins or surrounds of nuts and seeds and they are especially apparent in nuts with brown skins like almonds.  Their purpose serves as a protective layer to naturally prevent animals and insects from consuming them so that they have the opportunity to germinate and sprout into a plant. Soaking nuts and seeds in warm salty water overnight will activate enzymes that neutralise enzyme inhibitors and also breakdown a large portion of phytic acid that allow the nutrients to be better absorbed in the digestive system. This soaking preparation process is often referred to as activating nuts and seeds.

If you find that the introduction of nuts (nut butter) is too soon, you may try the Nut Free Flourless Chicken Pancakes more suitable. Some people may need to try introducing nuts much later in the diet than others, however this recipe is a good place to start when you feel that the time is right and you can make baked items from seeds as an alternative.

  1. Preheat conventional oven at 150 degrees (almond flour burns easily so this recipe needs to be cooked slowly).
  2. Cook the pumpkin by boiling it or use previously roasted punpkin from a left over meal. I like to make extra pumkin with my meals for this purpose in mind.
  3. Mix all ingredients in a glass bowl with hand held mixer on low. (do not over mix – just enough to ensure all ingredients is mixed and combined well)
  4. Line your bread tin with oven paper and pour ingredients in. Place in oven and cook for one hour (ensureing not to burn the top).
  5. When removing the bread from the oven, be sure to take it out of the tin immediately to allow it to cool by lifting the loaf out with the paper sides. This will avoid a darker crust because burnt nut flour is bitter. Let it sit and cook on the cooling rack with the paper still surrounding it. When it has cooled you may wrap the loaf in the baking paper and and place in a pyrex dish with a sealed lid to store in the fridge.
Recipe Notes

Suggestions

Nice with some avocado or nut butter.  You can make thin slices and crisp them in a dehydrator which is great for homemade dips and  soup dunkers.  The bread is also great for dippity eggs.

If the introduction of nuts or nut flour persists to be a problem for people starting the GAPS Diet, you may wish to ferment the nut flour itself.
