When gluten intolerance pushed alternative flours into the mainstream, I found out coconut flour was a thing. That was an exciting day.
Now, you would think that with all those health markers checked off, that the crackers would be joyless. Not the case! These guilt-free treats are nutty, savory and very filling. Besides, the 3 ingredients are just a gateway drug to zestier flavors. Salt is the third flavor, but before you know it, you'll be rummaging through the spice cabinet for zesty combinations.
3-ingredient almond cracker recipe
- 1 egg
- Two cups almond flour
- 2/3 tsp salt
- Add all ingredients to a bowl and mix well with your hands
- Place the dough on the counter, in between two sheets of parchment paper
- Roll the parchment paper until the dough is rolled cracker-thin and even
- Peel off the top layer of parchment paper, and with a pizza cutter, slice the crackers into little squares or rectangles
- Transfer the crackers onto a metal sheet pan lined with parchment paper
- Bake at 350 for at least 10-11 minutes, watching closely. Remove when the edges turn brown.
- Remove from the oven and let them cool on the sheet pan, as long as the crackers aren't too browned.
- Cool off, enjoy, and place into an airtight container only once the crackers have reached room temperature.
Now that we've gotten the recipe out of the way, I must admit I never just use three ingredients.
Almond cracker flavor ideas
Here are some great combos:
- Salt & rosemary
- Pizza: finely-chopped sun-dried tomatoes, powdered parmesan, thyme, oregano, and basil
- Truffle salt
I should mention that powdered garlic and powdered onion are a great accompaniment to every mentioned flavor combination. I should also mention that shredded cheese bakes well into these crackers, if you throw in just a handful. It will affect the texture and shelf life, but they are delicious.
