I have been looking for a almond flour crackers recipe. This almond flour crackers recipe is a mash-up of a few recipes. I love snacking on crackers! These crackers come together in a flash. Great to make for a last minute get together. There are a few variations you can make with different spices. The crackers go well with the lemon blueberry ricotta dip!
The chia seeds in the almond flour crackers recipe
The chia seeds are soaked in the water for 15 minutes. They will expand a bit. The soaked chia seeds will add moisture to the dough. The chia seeds are very high in fiber. They also add great flavor to the crackers also!
Combining the dough
The mixture is brought together by adding the soaked chia seeds to the rest of the ingredients. Roll the dough out between two sheets of parchment paper. The dough needs to be rolled out to no more than 1/8 of an inch. Score the dough into squares or square-ish pieces. Then, place the dough into the fridge to cool for about 15 minutes. The dough will be easier to handle after it has firmed up.
Baking the crackers
Transfer the chilled crackers to a lined baking sheet. The crackers bake at 400 degrees F for 7-8 minutes. I bake them so they are a little brown around the edges. Cool the crackers after baking on a cooling rack.
Variations of the spices
There are a few different variations of the spices I have used. Sea salt and cracked pepper are one of my favorite versions of the almond flour crackers recipe. Rosemary also works well! I make sure that the spices in the cracker compliment the dip that I am using.
My wife and I really enjoy these crackers! I am sure you will enjoy them too!
