Cheddar Almond Flour Crackers

Recipe by Deborah Murphy, MS, RDN

Ingredients

  • 2 cups (182 grams) blanched almond flour
  • 3/4 cup (58 grams) shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 egg (71 grams)
  • ½ teaspoon (2 grams) garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon (1.5 grams) onion powder
  • ¼ teaspoon(0.8 grams)  coarse kosher salt

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Add the flour, cheddar cheese, egg, garlic powder and onion powder to a food processor. Pulse 5 to 8 times until dough forms.
  2. Transfer dough to a piece of parchment the size of the baking sheet. Use your hands to form into a ball and compress into a disc with your hand. Top with a second sheet of parchment the same size as the first.
  3. Use a rolling pin to roll dough into a 1/8-inch thick sheet. Remove top layer of parchment. Use a knife or pizza cutter to score lines into the dough to make 1-inch squares. Transfer parchment and dough to a baking sheet. Sprinkle with the kosher salt.
  4. Bake for 16 to 18 minutes or until crackers are lightly browned. Transfer to a cooling rack. Once cool to the touch, break crackers apart along the lines scored in the dough before baking. Serve with your favorite dip. Store in a sealed container or Ziploc bag. Serves 8.
