Grain Free & Vegan
Homemade crackers are actually one of the easiest snacks you can make! I like to make my own so that I can control the ingredients and keep my snack time clean of preservatives.
Since I'm on a low-carb diet right now, I also love these crackers because they are grain free and packed with tons of protein - so I only need a few crackers to feel satisfied. One serving of 4-5 crackers only contains 6.9 grams of carbs but gives you 4.8 grams of protein!
Almond-Seed Crackers (PRINT RECIPE)
Makes 3 dozen crackers
1 ½ cups blanched almond flour
1/2 cup raw sunflower or pumpkin seeds
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon honey or maple syrup
1 tablespoon water
These are delicious as is, but you can also play around with the flavors of these crackers. Just add the variation ingredients to the flour mixture after it is processed and before the wet ingredients are mixed in. Here are some of my favorite versions:
Cracked Pepper Variation:
½ or more teaspoon ground pepper
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon fresh rosemary or 1 teaspoon dried
As always, let me know what you think...happy baking!
