Almond Meal Crackers
What you’ll need:
- 2 cups almond meal
- 1 egg
- 1 tablespoon olive oil (plus a little extra for your hands)
- any combination of herbs, nutritional yeast, sundried tomatoes, kalamata olives…the list is endless
- salt and pepper
How to do it:
Preheat your oven to 375(ish).
In a small bowl, whisk together egg and oil until well combined.
In a medium bowl, combine your almond meal with your herbs/ingredients of choice.
Combine the two bowls until well mixed.
Roll your dough into a ball and place on a parchment lined sheet pan. If you can figure out a way to successfully use a rolling pin, have at it. Mine stuck like crazy. And I had ZERO patience to troubleshoot. Otherwise, coat your hands in oil, and start patting! Get your dough as thin as you’re able (shoot for 1/8″, but don’t sweat it if it’s not quite there or uneven). If you like to be neat and tidy, score your crackers with a pizza cutter or knife. Since I didn’t take the time to roll them into perfectly flat sheets, I didn’t bother scoring them. Instead I threw them in the oven as is. Once they were golden brown (15-20 minutes), I pulled them out and broke them up into pieces.
My combinations were as follows:
These are NOT exact measurements. Feel free to add more or less, depending on your taste.
[Herbed] 1 tbsp thyme, 1 tbsp basil, 1 tbsp oregano, 1 teaspoon garlic powder, pinch cayenne, pinch of salt and pepper.
[Dill] 2(ish) tbsp dill, 1 teaspoon garlic powder, pinch of salt and pepper.
[Cheez-it] 3 tbsp nutritional yeast, salt and pepper.
[Cheezy Herb] 2 tbsp nutritional yeast, 1 tbsp thyme, 1 tbsp basil, 1 tbsp oregano, 1 teaspoon garlic powder, pinch cayenne, pinch of salt and pepper.
I topped all with a little himalayan salt before tossing them in the oven. Give them an extra boost of whatever herby flavor you desire by throwing some of that on top as well.
I managed to NOT eat them all as they came out of the oven, but it took more self control than I’m comfortable exercising.
I ran out of almond meal after these four batches, but I fully intend on getting more experimental with my ingredients (like the above sundried tomatoes, kalamata olives, capers — those kind of delicious bits).
Let me know which combinations tickled your pickle!
