Almond Flour Crackers

 If you are craving for some quick salty crackers to munch on, try this simple and easy to make and healthy crackers. These crackers are gluten free and grain free, high in protein and low carbohydrates. They make a great snack with cream cheese or peanut butter sandwiched between them.



Preparation Time - 10 Minutes

Cooking Time - 10 - 12 Minutes



Ingredients



Almond Flour - 1 Cup

Powdered Chia - 1 Tbsp

Salt - 1/2 Tsp

Red Chili Powder - 1/2 Tsp or to your taste

Sesame Seeds - 1 Tbsp

Sesame Oil - 2 Tsp

Water - 1/4 Cup (This varies based on the consistency of the almond flour)



Method



1) Preheat oven to 350 Degrees Fahrenheit.



2) Combine almond flour, powdered chia, salt, red chili powder, sesame seeds, sesame oil. Now add water little by little and make a stiff dough.



3) Make two equal parts of the dough and place them between parchment paper and using a rolling pin make a thin flat layer. Using a pizza cutter, cut into desired shapes. Using a fork slightly make small holes.

Making the holes, will make it crispy.



4) Bake in a baking tray for 10-12 minutes till crispy and slightly browned.



5) Cool them completely and enjoy.



Notes - Stores good at room temperature for at least a week. You can make the crackers without adding

powdered chia as well and in the picture below I made it without them.

Thanks all for your comments and regarding your question on Chia seeds they are similar to flax seeds but much more superior in terms of nutritional value. Very good source of Omega -3 fats. For more information, please check out this link http://benefitsofchiaseeds.com/Chia-Seeds-Nutrition.html. You can get Chia in your local health food store or online. I get the seeds and powder it using my food processor.
