Almond Flour Crackers

This first time I made these, I shared with some friends. They LOVED them and instantly had ideas for us to make a business out of selling these little crunchies. Well, that never happened but I still make them and like to experiment with different flavor combinations. The cracker base is easy: 1 egg, salt, and about 1 3/4 cup of Almond flour. Sometimes I double it, I find the consistency is better. This is definately a recipe you can experiment with and see what you like best.

First, whisk the egg and seasoning before adding in the almond flour. Once you’ve added the almond flour you should be left with a dough ball.  Place your lovely dough ball between 2 pieces of parchment and use a rolling pin to roll out the dough to be about 1/8-1/4 inches thick. Personally, I think they are much better thinner, but that can be difficult to maneuver. I find it easiest to then flip your sheet of flat dough onto a baking sheet. It works best to cook them ontop of parchment too. I forgot the last time I made them and ended up with quite a few crumbs. Next, use a pizza cutter or knife to cut the dough into cracker sized squares. You should be able to slide them apart with just enough room for baking. I go over the cuts with a thin spatula to make the perfect amount of space. They easily break apart when their done if they are too close.

After cooking in the over at 350 degrees for 15 minutes or so you should have perfect gluten free crackers!

If you make them plain, you will learn quickly they need flavoring. You can use literally anything you have in your spice cabinet. Try mixed garlic power into the dough and then mixing garlic power and salt together for a topping once crackers are just out of the oven. Mix in some cocoa for a chocolate cracker. Try topping with cinnamon and brown sugar for a sweet treat. I like to add Trader Joes Everything But the Bagel Salt on top-amazing! I’d love to hear what toppings you try!

These crackers are pretty filling but great to use for dipping and snacking. Keep in mind Almond Flour can be pricey for a 4 cup bag. I think I’ve mentioned this before, but Costco sells a giant bag for about $12 or so. Totally worth it and tastes great!
