Primrose "PMS" Crackers Recipe

Ladies, if you'd like a more creative way to ingest your dose of Evening Primrose without taking those icky little oil capsules, I have a recipe for you. Evening Primrose oil is obtained by pressing the seeds of the plant. However, if pressing your own oil isn't an option, grinding the seeds up will still give you the same health benefits (it is thought that the whole seeds will merely pass through your system, but grinding them up releases the vital oils and nutrients). I have come up with a lovely little cracker recipe for munching on when you are feeling crampy:

1 cup ground Evening Primrose seeds
1 cup regular white flour
1 tbsp baking powder
4 tbsp melted (unsalted) butter
1/2 cup milk
(Note: you can add salt to the recipe if you'd like. I, being very salt-sensitive, have chosen not to.)


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix ingredients together in a bowl until a dough is formed. Roll dough out onto floured surface until very thin, and cut out crackers using a small biscuit cutter. Place crackers on greased baking sheet, and cook in the oven for 20 minutes. Allow crackers to cool, then store in an airtight container. Eat when you feel that pre-menstrual monster awakening...
