I have been obsessed with Simple Mills Almond Flour Sea Salt crackers for over a year now. I love how they taste and I love their clean ingredient list even more. But, they are so pricey! Right!? I had to figure out a way to create my very own version so I could have them on demand whenever that salty crispy cracker craving hits. After a half dozen attempts, I landed on this amazingly simple recipe that is full of wholesome ingredients: almonds, flaxseeds, avocado oil, pure maple syrup, water and flaky sea salt.
All you do is stir the ingredients together, roll out the dough, cut into squares and bake for 15 minutes. That’s it! Not much hands on time at all and no fancy equipment needed. It is too quick and simple not to give this recipe a try. Plus, that flay sea salt combined with the hint of maple syrup is beyond addictive.
These crackers are sturdy, savory, sweet, salty and perfect for all your snacking needs! I hope this recipe inspires you to make your own crackers and skip the boxed stuff. If you do, please use #eatingbyelaine and tag @eatingbyelaine on Instagram and Facebook so I can see your epic creations!Print
These nutritious homemade crackers are made with wholesome ingredients and taste incredible. I love to snack on them plain or dip them in hummus.
- Preheat your oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Place almond flour, cassava flour, tapioca flour, flaxseed, avocado oil and water in a mixing bowl and combine well. Form mixture into a ball of dough and place on parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Place a sheet of parchment paper overtop the dough and roll it out into a rectangle shape with a rolling pin or cup. You want it 1/8 inch thick. The thinner it is the crispier your crackers will be. However, you don’t want it so thin that the dough starts to rip apart.
- Lift the top piece of parchment paper and tidy up the edges so it looks like a straight-edged rectangle. You may need to re-roll it to ensure it is even throughout.
- Sprinkle flaky sea salt overtop the dough. Place the parchment paper overtop the dough and gently press the flaky sea salt into the dough.
- Wet the blade of a small knife and create cut marks throughout the rectangular dough to form tiny cracker squares. I typically make 24 crackers out of this recipe. Do not pull the dough apart. Having the lines in the raw dough will make it easy to break up the cooked crackers after baking. Use a chop stick or toothpick to create holes in the crackers. I did 4-5 holes per cracker.
- Transfer the dough (including the parchment paper underneath) to a baking sheet. Bake for 13 minutes on the middle rack, watching closely at the end to ensure the edges do not burn. You may need to remove the perimeter crackers earlier than the inside crackers to ensure even baking.
- Once the crackers are golden brown, remove the baking sheet from the oven and allow the crackers to cool and rest without disturbing them. After about 10 minutes, carefully break them apart along the edges and enjoy immediately or place crackers on a cooling rack to cool further. Once fully cooled, store leftovers in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 4 days.
Feel free to add other seasonings such as onion powder, garlic powder or crushed rosemary.
