Chickpea & Almond Crackers

These gluten-free crackers are crunchy and much more flavorful that commercial gluten-free crackers which sometimes taste like farm animal food.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1/2 cup chickpea flour (garbanzo bean flour)*
  • 1/2 cup almond flour (almond meal)
  • 1 teaspoon Casina Rossa Herbs&Salt
  • 1-2 tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 3-4 tablespoons water
  • Additional sea salt for sprinkling

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F/200 C and line a large baking sheet with parchment.
  2. Place dry ingredients in a large bowl and whisk together, add 1 tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil and crumble with fingers or a whisk. Slowly add water until the mix becomes a dough. Knead for a few minutes until its smooth.
  3. Place the dough ball between two sheets of parchment paper and roll out, turning a quarter turn each time you roll to form a circle that is about 1/8-inch thick.
  4. Remove the top piece of parchment and cut the crackers into desired shape with cookie cutters or a pastry wheel.
  5. Carefully transfer crackers to the prepared baking sheet, brush them with Extra Virgin Olive Oil and sprinkle with a little sea salt (other flavored salts are good for this too) and bake them for about 10-15 minutes, until they are slightly golden.

*You can find chickpea flour at specialty grocery stores. In the Seattle area you can find it at Big John’s PFI. Bob’s Red Mill also makes a one available in better grocery stores.
