Grain-Free Garlic Rosemary Crackers

I wanted to bake something today, and I didn't feel like making sweets. I happened to have almond meal and this recipe just struck me. It is from the  Food Renegade website.  I found it today, written and put in my recipe binder.  I had actually forgotten where I found it until I looked it up just now.


 First I mixed almond meal, salt, garlic powder, rosemary, eggs and butter.  It formed a play-doh like lump.

The original recipe suggested pressing the dough into a pan, but I just flattened circles on my stoneware.  I made sure to make them very thin.

After the first two batches, I just went for it and tried rolling the dough on my counter.  After I rolled it out to a thin patty, I cut it into small squares.  It was pretty sticky, but I think because it had butter, it came off the counter pretty well with a spatula.  

This is what the circular crackers ended up looking like.

The square/rectangular ones with the fork marks do look a bit more appealing, but I think they were all good.  This recipe is all natural and delicious. 

Grain-Free Garlic Rosemary Crackers


4 cups almond meal
1 1/2 teaspoons salt (I used sea salt)
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon rosemary
2 eggs, mixed
2 tablespoons melted butter or olive oil (I used butter)

Mix dry ingredients.  Stir in eggs and butter.  Cut into squares or press into flat circles.  Be sure to make the crackers quite thin. Think about the size of crackers you would purchase.  Poke holes with a fork in each cracker (I skipped this step for the round crackers, honestly I just forgot.).  Bake at 350 for 11-15 minutes or until golden brown.  Let cool on a cooling rack.  When completely cool, store in an air-tight container.

  1. I'm going to give this one a try! I'm gluten intolerant and always looking for a good gluten-free cracker. Especially one that is not rice. I'm not wild about rice crackers. They are just not the same.

  2. I'm with you on the rice crackers. They all taste like the crackers in that oriental mix stuff. There are some that are ok, but they're not really cracker-y. I liked these dipped in hummus. Also, though it sounds weird, I tried a bit of blueberry jam on them and that was a good mix of sweet and savory. Let me know how you like them!
