Do you want to impress your friends and family with homemade crackers that are only made with 3 ingredients and are healthy? Are you on a diet and want a high protein and low carb snack? I have one of the best kept secret recipes to share with you today. If you love crispy savory snacks like I do and want to make healthy choices, these delicious crispy almond crackers will leave your cravings satisfied.
First of all, this recipe is super basic. You only need ground almond flour, an egg, and seasoning. You don’t need oil, water, or binders. Since almonds are originally full of good fats, no additional oil is needed and the oils are released during the baking process, creating a crispy cracker. All my recipes that I post are versatile, kid friendly, and are full of flavor. You can add some grated Parmesan if you want a cheesy snack. I like my crackers with a bit of kick so I add some chill flakes, paprika, and cayenne pepper. In this recipe below, I use the “Everything BUT the Bagel Sesame Seasoning Blend.” If you want to get creative, you can use cookie cutters to make crafty animal crackers for the kids, or entertaining snacks for yourself. Need I say more about these crackers? Try this recipe out and hope you’ll enjoy it as much as my colleagues and friends do.
1 ¾ cups ground almond flour
1 large egg
Dash of Salt and Pepper
2 tsp of additional seasoning
Add an egg, salt and pepper, and seasoning into a bowl. Mix until combined.
Add almond flour. Mix with a wooden spoon until a ball is formed.
On a flat surface, lay a piece of parchment paper or silicone mat down. Put the almond dough on top and flatten it with your hand. Lay another piece of parchment paper on top of the dough and use rolling pin to roll dough to desired thickness. This is to prevent dough from sticking onto the rolling pin.
Cut the dough with a cookie cutter or cut into squares with a pizza cutter/knife and lay them on a silicone mat or parchment paper lined pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 7 minutes. Take out the crackers and flip them over and bake for another 7 minutes. Depending on your oven, carefully monitor the browning of the cracker since they are just almonds and can burn quickly once they’re past the browning point.
Transfer crackers onto a cooling rack or cold plate and store in an airtight container.
