Homemade Almond Crackers similar to Wheat Thins

One of the things my husband and I have done since 2002 is try to cut down on white refined flour and sugar. We don't follow a strict way of eating but once or twice a year take 6-8 weeks to completely detox our bodies of white refined flour and sugars. Even when we are not following a no flour system I still love to make some of the recipes I have discovered and tweaked over the years.

This recipe is an imitation 'Wheat Thin' like cracker but with zero flour, it's low-carb diet friendly too.

Almond Thins Crackers

1 c almond flour or fine ground almonds
2 t sweetener of your choice (I'll link to Ideal below this post)
1 egg white
1/4 t garlic salt
1/8 t garlic powder
1/8 t onion powder

Mix all the ingredients in a small bowl. Make sure it's mixed well so all the almond is moist and the dough starts to hold together.

Crumble and drop the dough on parchment paper or well greased foil on a pan. Cover the sticky dough with another sheet of parchment or greased foil or plastic wrap. Roll the dough out with a rolling pin as thin as you can - 1/8 of an inch is what to aim for and even thinner if you can. You should be able to get a rectangle about 9X9 inches. Peel off the top layer and score with a pizza cutter to make about 30-40 small squares. Bake at 325 degree's for 10-15 minutes until golden brown. Check at 10 minutes and use a metal spatula to gently pry the crackers apart, flipping the ones on the outside to the inside and mixing them up a bit. When all are golden, remove, break apart and let cool completely. Store in an air tight container. These are incredible by themselves, with cheese or as a cracker dip for any number of spreads. I love them dipped in plain cream cheese as a snack.

The dough becomes very sticky!

Breaking apart before rolling helps to roll an even, thin layer

Be sure to cover completely or they WILL stick to a rolling pin...
your hand, the pan... everything they come into contact with

Break apart and enjoy!
