Aren’t Homemade Crackers Hard to Make?

If you’re unsure about making your own crackers, you’re not alone! To be honest, it took me years to finally try my hand at it. I always thought they were difficult to make or took too long. It turns out that they’re really easy and require no time at all to whip up!

Are Almond Flour Crackers Healthy?

One of the main reasons I like making my own crackers is that I know exactly what they’re made out of. Most crackers you find at the store have a super long ingredient list full of fillers and preservatives. And they’re usually made with processed white flour.

There is little nutritional value in most store-bought crackers, but these almond flour crackers are different. They have no added sugar and they’re loaded with fiber, protein and healthy fats thanks to the almond flour.

What You Need to Make The Crackers

Here are the simple ingredients you need to make these almond flour crackers:

  • almond flour – make sure you grab almond flour and not almond meal! Almond flour is more finely ground than almond meal and results in a lighter cracker.
  • ground flaxseed – the flaxseed adds healthy fats and fiber to the crackers and helps bind them together.
  • sea salt – I like to mix in fine grain sea salt into the cracker and then top with flaked sea salt for serving! I love Maldon salt flakes!
  • water – this moistens the dough and brings the crackers together.

Optional Mix-ins

I kept the recipe simple with sea salt and no additional spices or herbs, but you can add any seasonings you’d like. Here are some ideas:

  • Everything but the Bagel seasoning – I love this seasoning on any and everything… I actually have a recipe for everything bagel crackers.
  • Fresh herbs – any dried or fresh herbs would be lovely. I’m dreaming out mixing some rosemary into my next batch.
  • Garlic – try adding a little garlic powder or garlic granules for a savory cracker.
  • Italian seasoning – add in some Italian seasoning for the ultimate herby cracker.

How to Serve Homemade Crackers

If you’re like my husband, you judge crackers based on their ability to hold hummus. Lucky for him (and you!) these almond flour crackers are extra sturdy and perfect for holding copious amounts of hummus… or cheese… or whatever topping you like!

Here are some of our favorite ways to eat them:

  • With hummus – we love pairing these crackers with hummus… either creamy hummus, beet hummus or even lima bean hummus.
  • Meat and cheese – can’t go wrong with this classic combo.
  • Charcuterie board – add these homemade crackers to your next charcuterie board and impress all of your guests.
  • Peanut butter – want a creamy, protein filled snack? Spread a little peanut butter on each cracker and enjoy!
  • Salmon dip – this smoked salmon dip loaded with flavor and packed with protein. The perfect flavor pairing for these crackers!
  • Pesto dip – if you’re a Bitchin’ Sauce fan, you’ll love this copycat recipe for almond pesto dip.

How to Store Homemade Crackers

These almond flour crackers store super well! Allow them to cool completely before storing. You can keep them in an airtight container or a bag and keep them on the counter or in your pantry for 4-5 days.

If you need to store for longer, you can freeze these crackers for up to 1 month.

Ingredients

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Add almond flour, water, ground flaxseed, and sea salt into a medium sized bowl and stir together until the mixture turns into dough.

  • Place the dough on a piece of parchment paper and cover with a second piece of parchment.

  • Pat it out with your hands and then use a rolling pin to roll out the dough. You’ll want the dough to get pretty thin — about an 1/8 of inch thick. Try to keep form the dough into a rectangular shape, but it’s okay if it’s not perfect.

  • Once the dough is rolled out, remove the top sheet of paper and sprinkle a bit of flaked sea salt over the dough. Use your hands to press the salt down to help it stick. This step is optional, but the flaked sea salt makes the crackers really pretty.
  • With the top sheet of parchment removed, use a pizza wheel or knife to cut the dough into small squares. I made mine about 1/2 -1 inch. If you want to get fancy you can use a tooth pick to create a little hole in the center of each cracker.

  • Carefully transfer crackers (still on parchment paper) to a baking sheet and bake the crackers for 20-25 minutes or until the crackers turn golden brown and crispy. The pieces on the outer edges will get brown faster than the center pieces. You can transfer those that are golden to a cooling rack and put the pan back in the oven to bake the remaining crackers.
  • Let the crackers cool completely, either on the baking sheet or on a cooling rack. Enjoy immediately after cooling.
  • Place any leftover crackers in an airtight container or bag. Crackers will keep on the counter or in the pantry for about 4-5 days.

      I LOVE these little crackers! They don’t need anything on them but I did try the peanut butter and they were good that way too. I took RB’s advice and only put in 3/8 teaspoon of salt plus a teaspoon of sesame seed. They are on my favorite snack list!

      I ran out of crackers for my hummus, so I whipped these up quickly. They are so easy and so good. I mixed toasted sesame seeds and a few shakes of garlic powder into the dough and they turned out great. They were a tad salty so I’ll half the salt next time. Can’t wait to experiment with different flavor combos!

      I haven’t made these yet but they sound great. If I don’t have flaxseeds can I omit them? I wasn’t sure if they function kind of like an egg and if so, could I use aquafaba? Or can I just leave them out altogether? Thanks

        Hi Ciel – I haven’t tried it, but I think a regular egg should work in place of the flaxseeds. Let me know if you give it a try and how they turn out!

      I am on a paleo diet for health reasons. I’ve tried lots of cracker recipes. This is my favorite! It’s delicous. simple, crispy. I add dried thyme and rosemary.
