Because I have very busy days as a self taught gluten free chef, working on my blog and also working on my business as a Josephine chef cooking meals for my clients I need a lot of healthy snacks!
I love snacks that are super healthy and have lots of protein, yet don't require a lot of preparation once they are made. It is wonderful to be able to grab something like a healthy cracker and some nut butter with a cup of tea to relax with during my work breaks throughout the day.
If you are a super busy person with a lot of tasks to do during the day I am sure you can relate. I hope that you enjoy baking up a batch of these snack crackers to have on hand. They are so pretty because they have an organic shape and they would be lovely at a party as well served with hummus or other dips.
Enjoy the recipe!
Almond Flax and Seed Crackers:
Adapted from a recipe from Bon Apetit
1 cup gluten free old fashioned oats
3/4 cup finely chopped almonds
1/3 cup ground flax seed
1/3 cup finely chopped walnuts
3 tablespoons sesame seeds
3 tablespoons poppy seeds
1 teaspoon kosher salt
4 teaspoons coconut oil, melted
1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
3/4 cup room temperature water
parchment paper + baking sheet
1. Preheat your oven to 375F.
2. In a large bowl mix together all of the dry ingredients. Then, stir in the coconut oil and the maple syrup. Mix in the water and let the mixture sit to soak for 10 minutes.
3. After soaking for 10 minutes, place the mixture on a piece of parchment paper the size of the baking sheet. Place another piece of parchment paper on top and roll the dough out until very thin, or about 1/8 inch thick. Peel off the top layer of parchment paper and place on the baking sheet.
3. Bake for about 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown on top. Then, flip the cracker over and peel off the parchment to bake on the other side. Bake for an additional 15-20 minutes. Take the crackers out of the oven and then when they are cooled, break apart and enjoy!
I love having these crackers as a high protein snack and also I love to put nut butter on them. Yum!
Enjoy these crackers as a daily snack or as a fun appetizer for a party served with a dip like hummus!
