Paleo Challenge Day 24 – Crackers

One of the harder things about following a Paleo diet is the thought that you have to give up all the things you love and you can only eat meat and veg. By now, you will understand that as long as you stick to the principals, the modern day caveman or cavewoman bakes and creates meals that use Paleo ingredients, but reflect modern day recipe classics.
Crackers are something that I have missed! There are gluten free options out there that are delicious, but always left me feeling I had somehow cheated myself out of sticking to my choice of eating and lifestyle. I sometimes eat gluten free when I go out to restaurants (they don’t cater for Paleo widely yet where I live) and that feels like a naughty treat. So eating crackers that are GF feel more naughty for me and not part of my meal I can freely enjoy.
This recipe proved to me how easy it was to make my own crackers and not have to feel naughty anytime I wanted to enjoy some dip with something other than a vegetable stick. They are savoury and very tasty.

Paleo Crackers

2 cup Almond meal
4 Tbsp Coconut flour
1/2 tspn Sea salt
4  Egg whites
1 tspn Herbs, dry oregano or basil

Preheat oven at 175 degrees
Place all the dry ingredients into the TM bowl.
Stir them together 10 secs/speed 2.
Through the MC hole add the egg whites slowly while the blade are still moving.
Mix 10 secs/speed 2-3, until all the dry ingredients is coated. Won’t form one large ball.
Halve the mixture and form a ball.
Roll out a portion of the dough between 2 pieces of greaseproof paper very thin.
Remove the top piece of greaseproof paper.
Take a pizza cutter and score rectangles on the dough.
Place scored dough on the greaseproof paper on a cookie pan in oven and bake for 10-15 minutes. Check every 5 minutes until the crackers are lightly browned but not burnt. Sometimes I remove the browned ones and then stick the rest back in the oven to keep baking. (They will need to be slightly browner than the picture)
Let the crackers cool completely.
Have them with dip, guacamole, crumble over a salad (as croutons), great snack for the kids, or eat them all by yourself. They are so good, make sure to take them along when visiting friends and they will enjoy them too.
