If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

Thanks for the recipe. As for adding spices, that's not a problem, so it should be fine. This sounds like a good cracker. The following recipe calls for the meal, so I guess I'd just use the potato starch and brown rice or almond flours. I can't use the recipe calculator on the site, because my screen reader has too much problem with that. But, this sounds like a pretty healthy appetizer or on the go treat. I imagine these would microwave okay, if you did them for 30-60 seconds.
Here's the veggie muffin recipe, which can be cut in half.

1/2 c. olive oil
1/2 c. diced red pepper
1/2 c. diced yellow pepper
3/4 c. diced onion
1 c. diced celery
3 c. shredded carrot
2 cloves garlic, optional, though I'd say essential
2 oz10 pkg. spinach, thawed and thoroughly drained
2 c. eggs or egg substitute
1 1/2 c. matzoh meal, or in this case, potato starch and brown rice flour
2 tsp. salt
1/-3/4 tsp. ground black pepper
cooking spray
Saute vegetables, minus the spinach, in the olive oil until onions are brown and most of the liquid is evaporated. Remove from heat and add spinach.Beat the eggs and combine with the potato starch and brown rice or almond flour and the salt and pepper. Combine with the vegetable mixture. Spray muffin pans, and fill 3/4 full. Bake in a dg350 oven for min45, or until nicely browned. Serve warm. They freeze well.
Note: 1 egg equals about 1/4 c.. It seems like a lot of eggs, but the recipe says it makes 36 muffins. I don't use egg beaters, but I know you can.

Oh, I can help! This recipe comes from Living Without magazine (April/May 2009 issue). Now, I have never had regular matzo crackers, but these were tasty. And it comes from their special on Passover and is supposed to follow the rules of the Jewish dietary laws.

Mock Matzo
makes 12 round matzo

2/3c potato starch
2/3c almond meal or brown rice flour (I have always used brown rice flour with success)
2TB flaxseed meal
1/2tsp salt (I didn't think that was enough, so I added 1tsp for a better flavor)
1/4c butter, margarine, or vegetable shortening
6TB warm water

1. Preheat oven to 450 & line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper.
2. Combine the dry ingredients. Cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse meal.
3. Add water, a little bit at a time, combining until the dough forms a ball. (add additional 1 to 2 TB water if using brown rice flour.) Knead well, if dough is sticky, sprinkle with a little more potato starch while kneading.
4. Break off small pieces and place on a sheet of lightly oiled plastic wrap or parchment paper. Press with your fingers or roll until flat and thin. Prick rows of holes in each matzo with a fork.
5. Place matzo on prepared cookie sheet and bake in preheated oven for 8 to 10 minutes or until edges begin to brown. Thinner matzo can oven-bake quickly, so keep an eye on it.

**** Okay, I am not sure if adding spices are okay for Passover, but for anyone else interested in making these crackers we liked it with 1/4tsp garlic & 1tsp of a seasoning that you like. We thought this was a good recipe for crackers.****

Maybe it could be made with almond flour?

Matzo is like a saltine cracker basically. Matzo meal is like ground crackers. Maybe a Glutino or Schar cracker...

I need to know what's in matzoh meal, and what is a good sub for it, as I'm guessing it is not GF. I am not Jewish, but am making something for someone and don't want to blow the recipe. I think it sounds great, except for the matzoh meal. Thanks.
