Almond Crackers

It’s a snack time! Choosing the right snack is the hardest part of my diabetic diet. I eat the same things all over again and I dream sometimes about dreadfully high in carbs crisps or breadsticks. Discovering low carb flour substitutes seems to be like redemption to me. I haven’t tried many recipes yet but what I’ve cooked so far makes me think that it’s all possible…Eating cakes, having crackers with cheese or lovely muffins with my teaJ
These low carb crackers are really low carb. One cracker contains 0.4 carbohydrates. Not bad at all
JThey taste great with cheese on top or just on their own.

Ingredients (make 24 crackers):
150g ground almond
1 egg
1 tbsp. olive oil
½ tsp. salt 
 

Preparation:
1.    Preheat oven to 180C
2.    Combine ground almond with salt
3.    In a little bowl combine egg with olive oil
4.    Add egg mixture to almond mixture and combine together.
5.    Add some herbs or spices if you like. I added a bit of grated cheese but they taste great plain as well.
6.    Roll the dough between 2 sheets of baking paper. Remove the top sheet and cut out the shapes you like. It can be squares or circles (I used shot glass to make mine). Squares are easier to make as you don’t have left over dough and don’t need to repeat the process of cutting.
7.    Bake on baking paper for about 10-12 minutes.
8.    Let the crackers cool down and serve with cheese or just plain. 

Enjoy J

  6. I love these but I wanted some a bit crisper so after they were cooked I popped them back in the oven on very low- 100 for another hour, they didn't go any darker just crisper, perfect xxx
