Paleo Onion Sesame Crackers
There’s a reason I don’t make crackers often. I think there’s also a reason they’re called “crack”-ers. I CANNOT STOP MYSELF. I think a lot of people think that going “paleo” and removing grains from their diet means they have to give up a lot of things they used to love. Or that making things like crackers from scratch is hard. I say NAY, NAY.
These crackers have SIX ingredients and a ton of flavor. That’s it. Six. They’re crunchy and onion-y and remind me of those onion bagel chips.
You will definitely need parchment paper; there’s really no way around it. I also used garlic salt in this recipe. If you want to sub garlic powder and salt separately, I’d use 1/2 tsp. of each. Also, you cook these low and slow. That way they don’t burn – nut meal takes on an awful taste if you cook them too long. If you start to see the ones on the outside burning, just remove them and keep the rest in the oven.
Recipe: Paleo Onion Sesame Crackers
- 2 c. nut meal (any kind will work – I used 1 c. almond & 1 c. walnut)
- 3 tbsp. dried flaked onion
- 1 tsp. garlic salt
- 2 tbsp. sesame seeds
- 3 tbsp. olive/grapeseed oil
- 1 egg, beaten
- Mix dry ingredients together.
- Add in oil and egg and mix until moist.
- Form into large ball and place in the middle of a large piece of parchment.
- Place another piece of parchment on top.
- Roll from the center out with a rolling pin until around 1/10th of an inch thick (see photos of crackers to gauge).
- Remove top parchment.
- Using a pizza cutter, make a grid. You don’t need to separate them now; after they bake, they will break right along this edge, like perforation.
- Remove any pieces from the edge that are too thin – they will burn.
- Bake at 250 for around 45-60 minutes, depending on your oven until no longer soft.
