This homemade almond herb cracker recipe is the perfect crunchy gluten free and paleo snack. Healthy snacks are not always easy to find, so it is always better to prepare them at home.
I am much more into salty and savory food for snack time. I prefer to keep sweets for dessert. Therefore I’m always trying and testing new recipes for savory bites to enjoy between meals.
As you can probably imagine, I’m kind of in love with these crackers because they have a strong herbal flavor, a great taste, and the perfect consistency. They are crunchy and delicious, plus they don’t have a single trace of grains or processed ingredients inside. What’s not to like?
And the best part is that you can get extremely creative when cooking them: replace the herbs with spices like curry or turmeric, add garlic or onion, seeds, crushed nuts or even make them spicy by adding chilies or cayenne. Your toppings can be creative too. Top with cheese, almond butter, paleo thousand island dip or dip into tahini!
The recipe is very easy to cook and it will take about 15 minutes to prepare plus 10 minutes for baking. 25 minutes of your time for a great snack? Totally worth it! You will also benefit from the great flavor and healing properties of dried herbs such as basil, rosemary and oregano.
Homemade Almond Herb Cracker Recipe (Paleo & Gluten Free):
Preheat the oven to 350F. Place the flour, herbs and salt in a large bowl. Stir to combine. Add the butter and water.
Mix until you have a quite elastic dough. If you need more moisture, simply add a little bit of water.
Place it between 2 sheets of parchment paper. Use a rolling pin to spread the dough until 0.1 inch thick.
Remove the top paper and bake for 10-12 minutes flipping over after 6 minutes. Transfer on a wire rack to cool completely before serving.
