<h4><p style="color: rgba(20, 117, 135, 1)">Bring on the Flavor</p></h4>
Not only do chives lend big flavor to many recipes, they also offer health benefits. They contain the antioxidants quercetin and vitamin K. Quercetin and other flavonoids help prevent cancers. Quercetin also contains carotenes, zeaxanthin, and lutein—all can help protect against certain cancers. Vitamin K assists the regulation of cells that help to prevent bone demineralization. It also helps with the production of a bone protein called osteocalcin, which is vital for maintaining bone mineral density.
<h4><p style="color: rgba(20, 117, 135, 1)">Better Butter</p></h4>
Turns out, butter’s way more complex than it first appears. This humble, creamy concoction comes loaded with potential health benefits—if you choose the right type. Cows allowed to graze on green, grassy pastures, as opposed to cows that are grain-fed, make better butter. The cows raised on superior food sources provide butter with higher concentrations of omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3 fatty acids are a type of polyunsaturated fat. They are essential for your body, but you can’t produce them on your own, so you need them from your diet.

<h5>Prep Time: 10 mins | Cook Time: 20 mins | Serves: 6 (10 crackers per person)</h5>
<h5><p style="color: rgba(20, 117, 135, 1)">Ingredients:</p></h5>
* 1 ¾ cups shredded mozzarella cheese
* 2 tablespoons sour cream
* 1 egg
* ¼ cup almond flour
* ¼ cup coconut flour
* 2 tablespoons chives
* 2 tablespoons grass fed butter
* ⅛ teaspoon salt
<h5><p style="color: rgba(20, 117, 135, 1)">Instructions:</p></h5>
1. Preheat oven to 400℉.
2. In a skillet or saucepan, melt the shredded mozzarella over medium heat. Remove from heat, then add the sour cream. Pour into a separate bowl and stir until well combined.
3. Add the almond flour, coconut flour, egg, and chives to the cheese mixture. Mix until well combined.
4. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap, then place in the fridge for 10 to 15 minutes.
5. Between two pieces of parchment paper, roll the dough very thin using a rolling pin. Remove the top piece of parchment paper.
6. Use a cookie cutter or a knife to cut out shapes. Place the shapes onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Brush the tops with the melted butter, then sprinkle with salt.
7. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, keeping a close eye on them. (Place any dough scraps back in the fridge for another for 10 to 15 minutes before rolling out again.)
