No grain crackers

I totally understand missing the crunch of some foods like crackers and chips when going Paleo.  There really isn’t a substitute… until now!  I was having friends over for dinner the other night and had bought pate and some delicious goat cheese (yes I know goat cheese is not Paleo but on a rare occasion we will enjoy this as it is delicious!) and instead of my usual crunchy pear slices I decided to tinker with making Paleo crackers.  There are many recipes on the web but I was a little dubious about them working.  I modified mine a little with adding some flavorful extras and i really know you will like the results!  And they are super crunchy, hold together exactly like a cracker and entirely grain free!!!

Ingredients:

1C Almond Flour

1 Egg White

pinch salt

1tsp dried rosmary (you can use fresh too)

1tsp dried elderberries* (or currants)

1 tsp black sesame seeds

1/4 tsp crushed garlic

* I used elderberries because I had them, our local nature foods bulk section was clearing them out so I snapped them up.  Use Currents instead to add a little interest.

Method:

Place the almond flour, egg whites and salt in a food processor and pulse until combined, add the rosemary, berries and garlic and pulse until well integrated and the berries have been reduced in size slightly.  Add the sesame seeds and pulse until combined, try not to break these up.  Empty the contents of your food processor onto parchment paper and place another layer of paper on top.  With a rolling pin roll out your crust until desired thickness is achieved.  I rolled mine out relatively thin.  The oils from the almond flour will start to be expelled so try not to roll your mixture too long.  Remove the top sheet of parchment paper and place your bottom sheet with the rolled out cracker dough onto a cookie sheet.  With the back of a knife score the uncooked dough into cracker size pieces.

Cook in the oven @ 350F for 10-12min (middle rack) or until the edges of your crust slightly brown.  Remove from the oven and allow to cool before carefully breaking along your scored lines.  Enjoy!

NB: I cooked mine a little too much… whilst they still tasted amazing I would cook them a little less next time so they are a little more even (check them at 10 min and decided)

What I’m reading/trying

This book has been instrumental in getting my energy levels back with training. Whilst this is not Paleo, many of the principals can be adapted and still follow a very clean Paleo diet. Read my post on Paleo and Carb Back-loading HERE

About the Recipes

All the recipes you see on my site are made up by me, unless otherwise stated. I love to experiment in the kitchen and as you can see my photo's are not all fancy, they are usually taken with my phone just as I am about to dish up. These are real tried and true recipes that work, if they didn't I wouldn't post it. I hope you enjoy my cooking as much as I do.
