Low Carb Crispy Nutty Crackers
These strong, gluten-free crackers are suitable for butter and cheese, a
medium for appetizers or useful for dips or spreads. Try it with Bacon
Cheese Spread (super recipe). These recipes are a
spin-off of the beloved Almond Thins.
Neutral, nutty flavor and a light golden color – very robust and crunchy,
and much nicer than commerical varieties, I think. I personally don’t
notice a coconut flavor, but rather more of a nutty flavor.)
1 3/4 cups almond flour
1/4 cup coconut flour
1/4 cup finely grated cheese (I used Monterey Jack)
1 tbsp oat flour
1/2 tsp No Salt, or salt
1/8 tsp white pepper
3 egg whites (from large eggs), fork-beaten
Preheat oven to 325°F. In large bowl, combine almond flour, coconut flour,
grated cheese, oat flour, No Salt (or salt) and white pepper. Stir to
combine. Stir in fork-beaten egg whites really well until evenly distributed.
Line cookie sheet with foil or parchment paper and spray liberally with
nonstick cooking spray. Sprinkle cracker dough over entire cookie sheet. Using
a small piece of plastic wrap placed over a portion of the dough, roll out
evenly with a small rolling pin designed for rolling dough in pie pans or on
pizza pans (or use a small heavy, cylindrical object such as an unopened
food can); repeat. It will be clear where the dough is thicker and where it
is thinner. If necessary, rob dough from the thicker portions and place on
thinner portions, until the dough is more or less evenly distributed and
nice and smooth. Score through to foil with dinner knife into 9 x 6
Bake in center of oven 20 minutes. Remove very golden crackers from the
outer edges by cutting along the cut lines. There might only be a few. Place
inside crackers around the edges of the cookie sheet. Bake a further 10
minutes, or until golden brown. Allow crackers to cool completely. As soon as
they are cool, store in a cookie tin with lid, such as those Danish cookie
tins of old. Our crackers remain crisp even in our humid climate. If they do
become soft (from leaving uncovered for hours in a humid climate, for
instance), bake again in 325°F oven 5 to 10 minutes.
Helpful Hints: I have a gas oven (Whirlpool) these days, so baking times
could possibly vary with electrical ovens. Other hard cheeses besides
Monterey Jack may be used.
