I saw you posted a request for a cracker recipe. If you can do dairy, this is a great recipe for a crispy cheezit type cracker. It now seems to be my little grandson’s favorite. The following link is to the original recipe. I’ve made some minor modifications to the recipe as shown.
2 cups Almond Flour
3 ounces mild Cheddar Cheese shredded
3 ounces Monterrey Jack Cheese shredded
1 teaspoon Salt plus more for tops
1 teaspoon Garlic Powder (read your ingredients and make sure it is legal)
1/2 tablespoon Dried Onion Flakes
1/4 cup Water
1 TBSP Olive Oil
Mix cheese and almond flour in food processor until smooth. Then add the rest of the ingredients and blend until well mixed. Take the “dough” and place between two sheets of parchment paper. Use a rolling pin and roll until the thinness you desire your faux Cheese-Its to be. Don’t be shy about the thinness. Use a pizza cutter to score into cracker sizes. Sprinkle top with salt (this is key). Bake at 325 degrees for 18-20 minutes or so. You will need to keep an eye on them since they can overcook easily.
This is a picture of the final product. To make the square Cheezits I use a 1/16″ rolling pin ring and the pastry wheel pictured below, and an old Tupperware mini funnel to poke holes in the center. I’ve also included a picture of some fish crackers made with the same recipe but using a tad more almond flour.
I’ve made them without the little ‘gadgets’ and they turned out just as good. Let me know if you get a chance to try them!
