Animal crackers in my soup..

Grain Free crackers

Ok, no animals or soup in sight but it was catchy!!

I found this recipe for savoury biscuits in an old 20-year-old cookbook and realised that it could be fashionable as a Paleo recipe. I have tweaked it a bit – adding chia (only good for Chia pets 20 years ago!) and sesame seeds, and also using just the egg white rather than a whole egg – they are crunchier.  Based on almonds, this grain free recipe is fantastic with a sharp tasty cheddar or even a herb & garlic dip. They keep well in a sealed container and stay crispy for weeks – if they last that long….

Herbed Almond Crackers
200g almonds
2 tabs chia
1 tab sunflower seeds
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
herbs or spices  to taste – I used a sprig each of rosemary & thyme
1 tab sesame seeds
1 egg white
1 teas EVOO
Mill nuts & seeds for 10 seconds. Add rest of ingredients and mix SP 5 to form a firm ball. Add a teaspoon of water if required. 
Roll dough between 2 sheets of baking paper to an even thickness of about 3 mm.
Transfer to a baking tray in the paper and remove the top piece of parchment.
Trim the uneven edges of the dough, then cut into cracker-size squares (or animal shapes!!)
Sprinkle crackers with salt and place in preheated oven to 180°C. Bake for 15 minutes and turn off oven and let crackers sit inside oven to cool. 
They are good with tomato & avocado too!

    Would Coconut oil be an acceptable substitute for the Olive Oil? Thank you… Just found your website and am excitedly exploring!
