Ingredients

  • ¾ cup almond flour
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter
  • ¼ cup aged white cheddar
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ¾ tsp dried rosemary divided
  • ¼ tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp sea salt divided
  • 1 egg white

Instructions

Equipment Needed

Directions

    Form the crackers

    • Heat oven to 300° and melt the butter, then set it aside to cool.
    • Cut one piece of parchment and one of the wax paper the size of your baking sheet. Spray one side of each with avocado or olive oil.
    • In a medium bowl combine almond flour with baking powder, ¼ tsp sea salt, ½ tsp rosemary and the garlic powder. Mix well, breaking down the almond flour clumps as you go.
    • Using the small side of a cheese grater or a zester, grate the aged cheddar until you have ¼ cup shredded cheese. Mix into the almond flour then knead in the egg white and melted butter until fully combined.
    • Scrape out onto the center of the oiled parchment paper. Lay the oiled wax paper over top of the dough and roll out into until it’s roughly 20cms by 30cms.
    • It will form an oval but to make a perfect rectangle, just remove the wax paper and trim into a rectangle, using the trimmed dough to fill in the corners.
    • Form the cracker shapes with a knife, pizza blade or fondant scraper; Don’t cut all the way through. Sprinkle with remaining rosemary and a pinch of sea salt. Use a meat mallet to create the dimpled cracker look, or leave as is.

    Bake the crackers

    • Slide the parchment paper onto the baking sheet and bake on the center rack for 10-12 minutes, or until the bottom of the crackers are lightly golden brown.
    • Remove from the oven then cut all the crackers apart using a sharp knife. Flip the crackers over and bake for an additional 5-8 minutes until each cracker is perfectly golden brown.

    Notes

    • Store in an airtight container at room temperature.
    • Keep an eye on the crackers during the last baking period: you may need to remove some before the rest if they brown sooner than the others.
