Ingredients

  • 1 ⅓ cup 120g almond flour
  • 3 tablespoon chia seeds
  • ¼ cup 50g unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 medium egg, slightly beaten1
  • 1 teaspoon xanthan gum
  • Sea salt

Instructions

  • Combine all dry ingredients in a mixing bowl.
  • Add the melted butter and mix well.
  • Add the beaten egg and mix until a dough forms. Form a ball and let it rest in a freezer for about 20 mins.
  • Preheat the oven to 150 C (300F).
  • Take the dough out, place it on parchment paper, press it down, and cover it with a second sheet of parchment paper. Using a rolling pin, roll the dough evenly until it reaches 2-3 mm in thickness.
  • Cut the dough into desired shapes with a cookie cutter. Using a spatula, carefully transfer the crackers onto a baking tray lined with parchment paper, ensuring that there is some space between each cracker. (Don’t use your hands to transfer the crackers; you will break them!)
  • Gather scraps of the dough and re-roll until all dough is used. If the dough becomes too soft to work with, let it rest in a freezer for an additional 15 minutes before re-rolling it. 
  • When all crackers are on a baking tray, prick them with a fork or a toothpick so they stay nice and flat when baking.
  • Bake on the middle rack for 15-18 mins or until golden brown. The baking time will vary, depending on your oven and the thickness of the crackers. I recommend keeping an eye on them so they don’t burn.
  • Take the crackers out from the oven and cool them down completely before serving.

Notes

NET CARB: 1g
Store the crackers in an airtight container. Before storing, make sure they are completely dried and cooled.
You can substitute xanthan gum with 1 teaspoon of psyllium husk.
