I’m a little in love with these Paleo Herb Crackers, so much so I have made them 3 times in the past week. Wow! I know crazy, but here is another crazy thing…I have also made the Coconut Chicken Nuggets 3 times too! Yes, I guess I’ve had a addicted type of personality these days in the kitchen! That or I’m too lazy to make anything else. Hmmm? Possibly so since life is totally crazy lately, hence the lack of blog posts on the other side of the blog. I promise I will try to get back to a somewhat normal posting soon.
Ok, back to these crackers…. since the nuggets require a egg yolk and the crackers require a egg white they are a great pairing when I’m cooking one or the other. Nothing wasted. Perfect, especially considering I love them both. The crackers can be changed up depending on what spices you want to add too. I have a organic salt free pizza seasoning that rocks in these crackers. I also added rosemary, which is another one of my favorite herbs. But again, you get to decide what spice you like best. I’m telling you though these crackers are very addicting. They are a great little quick “snack”, but of course in proportion if you are following a Paleo lifestyle. My little munchkins loved these too so I added these to their lunch box a couple times last week. If your little ones don’t like spices keep that in mind when picking your spices of choice. For example, the pizza seasoning I use has red pepper flakes and if you get a bite of cracker with too much of red pepper flake it can have a little spicy bite. Some little ones don’t like the heated spices. If you do try different spices come back and leave a comment letting me know what you added and what you and your family liked. I would love to hear. I’m seriously thinking about doing a “sweet” like cracker with cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice….I wonder how that would taste. To be continued…if I try it I’ll let you know.
Enjoy the crackers everyone and I’ll be back later this week with a special treat….a giveaway!
Paleo Herb Crackers
2 cups almond flour
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
2 tablespoon favrite herbs of choice (I used a blend of pizza seasoning and rosemary)
2 tablespoons water
1 egg white
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/4 teaspoon coconut oil
Preheat oven to 350.
Combine almond flour, salt, and spices in a medium mixing bowl. In a small bowl, whisk together the water, egg white, olive oil, and coconut oil (melted). Pour wet ingredients into dry and stir until stiff dough forms and all dry ingredients are wet. This may take a lot of stir to accomplish this. You can also place everything in the food processor and process until the batter forms into a dough ball. If it doesn’t add a little more water or olive oil to the batter and process again.
NOTE: If you go the stir method and the dough it still not coming together add a little more water or olive oil until it does form a dough. You don’t want it to be overly wet though or it will need more time in the oven.
Place dough between 2 sheets of parchment paper and roll out to an even thickness of about 1/8 of an inch. Transfer parchment to a baking sheet pan and remove the top piece of parchment. Using a pizza cutter trim off uneven edges of dough, then cut the sheet of dough into cracker size pieces/squares.
Bake for 10 minutes. Turn off oven and let crackers sit inside oven for an additional 10 minutes, until golden.
Let crackers cool and enjoy!
