Taste and Occasion
Once again, a recipe that also pleases people who do not eat a low carb diet: These crackers without flour, wheat, sugar, gluten and Co. are not only extremely quick to make. They also taste actually great. Three ingredients, five minutes of preparation, ready!
The low carb snack recipe is simple: Mix ground almonds, an egg and some butter. You can refine the basic dough as desired. We like the low carb crackers exceptionally well with sea salt and herbs. But you can also add seeds and kernels. How about sesame seeds, poppy seeds, sunflower seeds and flax seeds? Of course, gluten-free crackers without flour taste slightly different from everyday snacks, such as homemade crackers or cheese shortbread cookies. For example, they are not quite as crispy (due to the lack of gluten). But still - quite honestly - delicious! I bake the keto crackers mostly with blanched, ground almonds. But you can make them just as well with natural almonds, hazelnuts or walnuts.
The consistency of the almond crackers is slightly crunchy. Depending on how thin you roll them out, they will be marginally softer or crispier.
How to make the Keto Crackers
Let's get started with this easy recipe: First of all, you preheat the oven to 350°F/175°C. Then, you continue with kneading all ingredients for the dough together and seasoning or refining as desired.
Turkish Borek with Spinach and Cheese are delicious dough rolls from Turkish cuisine. Borek with feta cheese and spinach is a great snack and is either baked in the oven or deep-fried.
After that, roll out the dough thinly between two layers of baking paper. Cut into diamonds or squares with a large sharp knife or pastry wheel. In the end, bake on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper for about 8-10 minutes and you're done!
The crackers are a great low carb snack to go and make a unique side dish with cheese and vegetable sticks. Even our kids like them. For them, I sometimes make a slightly sweet alternative, enhanced with vanilla and cinnamon.
