Rosemary Raisin Almond Pulp Crackers
*If you want to make these with Blanched Almond Flour please see this recipe
I was shopping at Trader Joe’s the other day and they were sampling some crackers that looked delicious. I resisted the urge to try them since they were made with wheat flour and a slew of other ingredients that I can’t eat, but I took a look at the ingredient list and decided to try my own version when I got home. My version is SCD and Paleo friendly and are also vegan raw!
Luckily, I had made Almond Milk a couple of days prior and saved the pulp that was left over from the juicer in a ziplock bag in my fridge, so I ended up having everything I needed already in my kitchen.
Take these little crackers to a party on a tray with goat cheese and some pears. It makes for a delicious appetizer! The raisins and the rosemary make the perfect combination of savory and sweet.
- 1 cup almond pulp
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- ½ teaspoon sea salt
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 tablespoons raisins
- 2 teaspoons ground flax seeds (omit for SCD & reduce olive oil to 1-1/2 tablespoons)
- 3 teaspoons shelled sunflower seeds
- 1 sprig rosemary
- Place all of the ingredients, except for 1 teaspoon of sunflower seeds, in a food processor and grind until combined thoroughly. Add the remaining 1 teaspoon of sunflower seeds, and pulse once until they are roughly chopped.
- Remove the dough and form it into a ball with your hands. Place the ball between two sheets of parchment paper, then roll the dough to a ⅛ inch thickness with a rolling pin.
- Remove the top sheet of parchment, then use a pizza cutter to cut the dough into rectangles. Carefully, use a spatula to separate the crackers slightly. Gently slide the parchment paper onto a tray. The crackers are a little brittle until they’ve been dried.
- Set your dehydrator to low (or your oven to 120 degrees). Dehydrate the crackers for about 24 hours or until they are crisp and the moisture is completely gone. I turn the crackers mid way through, but it is not completely necessary. The nice thing about dehydrating is how low maintenance it is!
