These are so easy and quick to whip up! And you have two options one is gluten-free and one is low gluten with a little bit of spelt flour. For the greens you can use baby spinach, baby kale, or mixed greens instead of clover.
I collected the clover leaves from the front yard. Are used white clover with no blossoms only the leaves. You can rinse them first if you wish. Clover leaves are very nutritious and also medicinal. I will post more info about the nutritional and medicinal properties at the bottom of this page. These make a great activity to do with your kids as you let them forage in your yard for three and four leaf clover‘s! Great way to celebrate St. Patrick’s day! More about who Saint Patrick is below that you can read as part of your activity.
1/2 cup spelt flour or Bob’s Red Mill gluten-free blend
1/2 cup coconut flour plus 2 tablespoons
1 cup arrowroot flour or tapioca flour
2 cups water
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
3 handfuls fresh clover leaves or greens of choice
Preheat oven to 350°F. Add all of the ingredients to a blender and blend until greens are fully blended. If needed push down flour with spatula if it is sticking to sides of blender. Add a little spray oil to 2 nonstick cookie sheets. Poor enough batter onto each sheet to spread out 1/4 inch over entire pan. Bake for10 minutes and remove from oven to sprinkle with seasonings of choice. Are used everything bagel mix and extra sea salt on top. Replace in oven and bake for additional 30 minutes. Remove from oven and check center to see if it is soft. If it’s still soft and center replace an oven for 5 to 10 more minutes. When finished baking let them cool completely before breaking them into chunks. Store in airtight container.
Use the photo above to identify white clover patches in your yard. traditionally white clover has been used to treat colds and viruses, it is also used to cleanse and purify the blood. It’s high in protein and many vitamins and minerals.
Who is Saint Patrick? First he was a saint in the sense that all who belong to Christ are saints, (1 Corinthians 1:2 To the church of God which is at Corinth, to those who have been sanctified in Christ Jesus, saints by calling, with all who in every place call on the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, their Lord and ours), but he was never dubbed a saint by any Church, neither catholic nor Protestant. In his own words he said “I am not a saint but a sinner”, as we all are without the Father’s Grace, Christ’s work on the cross, and the Holy Spirit deposited within us to teach us the ways of God (Colossians 1:12 giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified us to share in the inheritance of the saints in Light). While Protestant Christians would strongly disagree with some aspects of theology that Patrick taught, the fact that around 1,600 years ago a man dedicated his life to proclaiming the gospel to his enemies, resulting in tens of thousands coming to faith in Christ, is definitely worthy of celebration (Luke 15:7 Just so, I tell you, there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who need no repentance). The reformation had not occurred yet so while he may have some romanized roots he was a British Christian who found true faith during the solitude and servitude of tending sheep through prayer to God.
He was captured by Irish pirates at 16 along with his family. Then escaped 6 years later after overcoming his superficial faith in God and coming to true faith in God with his whole heart and soul. He later felt burdened for his captors and went back to Ireland to preach the gospel to pagen Ireland. He converted the king and over 130,000 people and planted 300 churches. The gospel coming to the people of Ireland is what is celebrated as the catalyst for the civilization of Ireland.
He died on March 17, 461 AD. He supposedly used the druids love for the shamrock to demonstrate the beauty of the trinity three in one, God the father, God the son, and God the Holy Spirit.
