paleo rosemary crackers

22 October 2012


hi friends, i have another healthy, grain-free recipe for you today! when i stumbled upon this herb cracker recipe, i knew i had to try it. 

these crackers make for a great snack with with cheese or dip, but honestly, they can stand on their own. i've been packing them in our lunches for work and both the mr. and i love them.

you can use any herbs you have on hand, but let me tell you, you won't regret the fresh rosemary. i'm also really loving the penzey's garden salad seasoning; i use it on my kale chips, but it's perfect for this recipe. 

we like our crackers thin and crispy and by rolling the dough extremely thin, it goes a long way. i was able to make about 25 large crackers - double that if you prefer a smaller cracker and/or you're making these for a child.

a few tips for you:

err on the side of rolling the dough extremely thin if you want a crispy cracker. if you leave the dough 1/2 inch or thicker, the texture becomes chewy.

save the dough you cut off the ends because you'll be able to make about 6-10 more crackers from the extra. 

don't be afraid to over-bake; it's virtually impossible with this recipe. to test the texture, carefully tap on the top of a cracker with your fingernail. if the cracker gives, bake until hard.

4. place dough on counter, between two sheets of parchment paper. roll until very thin and cut off uneven ends with a pizza cutter. use cutter to make cracker-sized squares.

These look so delicious!! Love the added tips as well, because if I made, I'd definitely want them super crispy, not chewy. Also just love any recipe with very few and easy ingredients.. feels like that's how everything we eat really should be.

Sounds pretty good. I can't eat grains and am mostly raw vegan so I've made some great similar crackers in the dehydrator! Just not with almond flour, more just grinding the almonds myself. I love how paleo and other alternative diet recipes are becoming widespread. Your beautiful photos help!
