I was searching for a cracker with no high-fructose corn syrup or sugar and I stumbled on, “How to make your crackers at home.” Thus the journey began to make this gluten-free, dairy-free, plant-based, fiber-full and sugar-free cracker. This recipe took 5 months to develop. I never thought so many people would be enjoying this cracker and want me to teach them how to make them. I hope you enjoy them as much as we do.
- 5 cups almond flour made from soaked and dried almonds
- 1/3 cup freshly ground flax meal
- 1/3 cup sun-dried tomatoes
- 4 tsp chia seeds
- 4 tsp sesame seeds
- 3 Tbsp onion flakes
- 2 tsp onion salt
- 1 tsp cayenne pepper
- 1 tsp unrefined sea salt
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 1/2 cups water (preferably warm)
Sprinkle Mix: 1 tsp each of onion flakes, poppy seeds and sesame seeds (I pre-mix this into a shaker until full and just sprinkle on the top of rolled dough.)
- In medium bowl, mix all ingredients but the water and mix until well incorporated. Then add water until moist but not wet.
- Gather 1/3 of dough into a ball and place between 2 sheets of unbleached parchment paper. Roll as thin as possible.
- Remove top layer of parchment paper and sprinkle with the sprinkle mix. Gently press mix into crackers.
- Using a pizza cutter, score rolled out dough into 1-2 inch squares.
- Do steps 2-4 using 1/3 of dough each time until you have 3 sheets of scored and sprinkled crackers.
- Bake at 225°F for 2 hours until crunchy.

Made them and ate them. YUM!!! Very easy recipe. I cut the cayenne by half and they are still spicy, which we love! Here’s a look no to pictures of the finished product. Serv d with garlic, basil, sun-dried tomato cheddar cheese! https://instagram.com/p/Bk8WtqtAo632CpzpS8b9RJ08il36w9C1yTdVus0/
They look so good!! I’m so glad you have enjoyed them..
These sound incredible! Would the recipe work with store-bought almond flour/meal, or must it be made from soaked and dried almonds? Thanks!
I use Bid Red Mill blanched almond flour.. Weston Price suggested the fresh ground almonds…
I’m sorry.. for the miss spell..

You may also purchase sprouted almonds from one of the resources listed in our Shopping Guide, and grind them into powder, “flour”, in a Vita Mix, Blend Tea, or by another means.
