Inspiration is everywhere and hits you when you least expect it.
I was at work last week and a co worker told me about the crackers she had made. Say what? CRACKERS??!! My interest was piqued.
I had been meaning to make crackers for a while now but kept putting it off. Honestly, who has time to make… crackers?? Not me! I mean, there are so many other things to make. When I thought about it I kept thinking about all of the work for a few measly crackers that were likely not even crunchy. Ugh, No thanks. BUT…When she told me how quick and easy it was, how good they were, and how thankful she was to have found them well, my heart started to beat a little faster. I wanted to make crackers too! I thought about it. Was I really going to make a viable cracker with ease?? Let’s see.
- 2 cups almond flour
- I egg
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp pepper
Yes, really that’s it. Mix the almond flour in good with the salt and pepper, then add the egg. Mix it by hand until a ball forms. I didn’t use a food processor like the original recipe called for, I just did it all by hand and it worked perfectly! There you have it, cracker dough. 🙂
Roll your dough ball between two pieces of parchment paper until it’s nice and thin.
Cut your dough to the size you want your crackers to be, then carefully pick up the parchment paper with your uncooked crackers on top and move it to a pan.
Bake at 350 for 12-14 min. Let them cool and crisp up. Ohemgee it worked! You now have crackers!! Hooray!
Don’t they look perfect? Just like store bought but without all of the nasty other stuff. Plus it’s super cool to say you made crackers and trust me, your friends and family will be impressed!
Above I served them with some made from scratch tapenade (not made by me though) that I bought at the market. What about adding a bit of rosemary, garlic, or parmesan if you eat dairy? This is a great base for any flavour you fancy! These natural healthy crackers can sub in for regular crackers anywhere. Home made dips, guacamole, or salsa would be perfect with these crunchy little numbers. Or if you eat dairy, add some cheese! You can double the recipe and keep them in an air tight container in the fridge. Just be sure to hide them in the back or they may disappear quickly!
Did you ever think it could be this easy to make a cracker!? I am legit impressed! Woohoo! Enjoy!
