Here is a quick and easy grain free cracker recipe for your charcuterie & cheese boards at home...
For the crackers:
1 ½ cups natural almond flour
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1 tablespoon chia seeds
½ teaspoon salt
For the egg wash:
1 teaspoon water
Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. In a bowl mix together the almond flour, egg, chia seeds and salt. You can use your hands to bring it all together into a wet sand texture that holds together well.
Add the mixture to baking parchment, then top with another sheet of parchment to cover. Roll out dough between the two pieces of parchment so the dough fits your baking tray (dough should be very thin). Carefully transfer the rolled out dough on parchment paper your baking sheet that should be slightly bigger than the dough. You can also divide the dough in half and bake on two smaller baking sheets. It’s up to you, but please note that you do want the dough to be very thin.
Remove the top piece of the parchment paper and cut crackers into squares.
Whisk your second egg in a small bowl with 1 teaspoon of water to make an egg wash. Lightly brush all of the dough with the egg wash. You won’t need to use all the wash.
Bake for 15-20 minutes until set and crackers are nice and golden brown. They need to be completely golden brown to be crispy crackers and to stay that way.
Allow to cool for 10 minutes before carefully breaking the squares up into crackers. Divide into 8 servings.
