Maple Pecan Walnut "cracker/cookies"

I wanted to bake another portable snack for the girls and whipped this up. Rory told me "you'd better write this one down"... If only you could have seen the look on his face after his first bite. Needless to say, all family members readily approved of this!

2 cup pecans
1 cup walnuts
2 tsp baking soda
scant 1/2 tsp sea salt
3-4 tbsp maple syrup
1/2 tbsp water
3 tbsp grapeseed oil

1. In a blender or food processor, pulse the nuts, soda and salt until finely ground.
2. In a bowl mix together nut mixture, maple syrup, water and grapeseed oil until well combined.
3. Spread onto a parchment or silpat lines cookie sheet.
4. To help get a uniform thinness, I put a piece of saran wrap over the top and used my hands to pat it into a rectangle shape that was about 1/8 to a 1/4 inch thick.
5. Bake at 350 for ~15-17 minutes.
6. Let cool then cut into squares.
