    Default Gluten-Free Almond Meal Crackers

    Original Recipe here

    Rosemary Crackers

    Ingredients:

    1 ¾ cups blanched almond flour
    ½ teaspoon celtic sea salt
    2 tablespoons fresh rosemary, finely chopped
    1 tablespoon olive oil
    1 egg

    Procedure
    In a large bowl, combine almond flour, salt and rosemary

    In a medium bowl, whisk together olive oil and egg

    Stir wet ingredients into almond flour mixture until thoroughly combined

    Roll the dough into a ball and press between 2 sheets of parchment paper to ⅛ inch thickness
    Remove top piece of parchment paper

    Transfer the bottom piece with rolled out dough onto baking sheet

    Cut dough into 2-inch squares with a knife or pizza cutter

    Bake at 350° for 12-15 minutes, until lightly golden

    Let crackers cool on baking sheet for 30 minutes, then serve

    VOILA:



    Still working on getting the right filter to take pics of food on my instagram.

    I used unblanched Almond Meal because it's $3.99 at Trader Joe's instead of paying damn near $10 for it everywhere else and they still came out decent.

    Also, I used dill instead of rosemary and Old Bay seasoning instead of sea salt. Came out great. My first batch wasn't so good because aluminum foil is not that great for this type of recipe. So I broke down and bought some parchment paper. Great post-workout snack!

    I live off of these between meals! The TJ brand is great so is Bob's Red Mill, but yes, it's more expensive. I usually make mine plain, I bet some garlic would be good in these too!

    I would love to try this. Thanks for the recipe and for the TJ tip on the almond flour, I'll check it out there. Like you, I'd nix the rosemary. Maybe I'll use thyme or dill.

    One questions though, do the crackers taste like almond? I love almonds, but I don't know how it would be in cracker form?

    The parchment paper really helps, doesn't it? It comes in so handy for so many different things. And you can re-use it once or twice if you're baking things like this or cookies or whatever. I wouldn't reuse it if I were making something with meat, but other than that, I reuse them and turn them over until they just kind of look used up. You can conserve a roll that way so you don't run out of it as quickly.

    IMO It pretty much tastes like what spices you add to it, kind of dry and I guess nutty I use a flat pizza pan to bake mine on.

    Thanks for the info Mme! I just wondered if it was going to taste like crushed up almonds and if it were going to be overwhelming to the other flavors, either what's already in it, or what you top the cracker with.

    Cayenne! Yes! That's sounds so good.

    I might add a little Parmesan cheese in there too, just because I can't help myself.

    This^^^ I melt cheese on mine when I am home, soooo good! Putting parmesan into the mix is a great idea.

    Almond meal does have a slightly nutty taste to it. You can also do this with chickpea flour, which tends to have a more neutral taste to it, but I found it a bit more finicky to cook with if you don't have enough water or olive oil to cook with.

    Thanks, Hustle! I'll try the almond flour first since I'm a newbie to both flours. Slightly nutty is good with me. I imagine chickpea flour doesn't have enough fat in it so it burns quicker than almonds.
