Grain-Free Rosemary Olive Oil Crackers

Once you find out how easy it is to make grain-free crackers, you’ll be hooked. These are a variation of my other favorites, my grain-free everything crackers. If you haven’t tried those, you really should, especially if you have fond memories of a good everything bagel. These are a great way to add crunch to your paleo lifestyle. If you’re doing the 21 Day Sugar Detox along with us, they’re a perfect snack to help you get through those… oh you know… moments. Grain-Free Rosemary Olive Oil Crackers Preheat oven to 325° 2 cups almond flour 1 egg, preferably pastured 1 tablespoon olive oil 1 tablespoon minced fresh rosemary 1/2 teaspoon sea salt In a large bowl, beat the egg and the olive oil. Mix in the remaining ingredients and mix well, giving it a few kneads. Turn out onto a sheet of parchment paper and flatten out a bit. Cover with another sheet of parchment paper and roll out to 1/8 inch thick. Remove the top sheet of parchment and cut into 1 inch squares with a sharp knife. Transfer (with the bottom sheet of parchment) to a sheet pan and bake for 14-20 minutes, checking occasionally. The outside crackers might be done sooner than the center, in which case just remove the pan from the oven and carefully transfer the finished crackers to a plate to cool. They’re done when they’re just barely golden. Store in an airtight container. These are great for just snacking, but for some simple hors d’oeuvres ideas: goat cheese and tapenade chicken liver pâté and a slice of cornichon fig jam and aged manchego cheese grilled steak, caramelized onions and dijon mustard All of the links on zenbellycatering.com are for information purposes, however some are affiliate links to books, products or services.

Grain-Free Everything Crackers

Posted by on Jan 27, 2012 in 21DSD, Appetizers, grain-free, Paleo, potluck, Snacks, Vegetarian | 28 comments

There are plenty of gluten-free crackers out there. Some are a bit dangerous to our expensive dental work, while some are no healthier than their gluten laden counter parts. They are often made of rice flour, potato starch, at least one kind of “gum”, and plenty of other ingredients that we could all live without. These, my paleo friends, are a whole ‘nother story. Not only are they paleo, but they couldn’t be simpler to throw together when you’re craving something crunchy, or are feeling nostalgic about your cracker eating days. These crackers are very reminiscent of an everything bagel, something this east coast Jewish girl misses once in a while… Preheat oven to 325. 1 3/4 Cup almond flour 1/4 Cup combined seeds (I used poppy, sesame, and caraway) 1/2 teaspoon sea salt (use coarse if you like the occasional pop of salt like on an everything bagel) dash garlic powder, optional 1 Tablespoon melted butter 1 egg, well beaten Combine all ingredients and mix / knead well. Turn out onto a cookie sheet sized piece of parchment paper and flatten a bit. Top with another piece of parchment paper and roll out to about 1/8 inch thick. Remove the top sheet of parchment and cut into 1-2 inch squares with a sharp knife. Bake for 14-20 minutes, or until The crackers are golden brown. The outside ones may cook first, and it’s OK to carefully remove them as they do, and cook the rest for a few minutes more. Allow to cool, and store in an airtight container. If, that is, they make it to the container. Topping ideas to turn your homemade crackers into fancy hors d’oeuvres: wild smoked salmon & chive creme fraîche chicken liver pâté and a slice of cornichon cream cheese and cucumber (my favorite childhood sandwich!) and a sprig of dill All of the links on zenbellycatering.com are for information purposes, however some are affiliate links to books, products or services.
