Rosemary Crackers

by Susan on March 18, 2011

 

One of the many things that I make sure I always have on hand in my raw food pantry are raw, gluten free flat breads and crackers. It completely eliminates the need for bread, where I am concerned. These tasty little crackers are made from a combination of almond and cashew flour! I used my high-speed blender and the dry container to make the flour, but you can use your food processor or a coffee grinder.

Why do we want to eat nuts? They are amazing little packages of health. Did you know that eating nuts actually protects your heart? They are full of the good fats that lower bad cholesterol levels. They are full of omega 3 fatty acids, and fiber. Nuts also have l-arginine which may actually make the walls of your arteries more flexible and less prone to blood clots!

The rolling pin I used to make these can be found here: Knobbed Rolling Pin

These little crackers have a hit of garlic and rosemary. You will love the texture and the taste.

 

Rosemary Crackers

  • 1 cup cashews, ground into flour
  • 1 cup almonds, ground into flour
  • 3 teaspoons rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon dried garlic
  • 1/3 cup flax, ground
  • 1/2 cup water
  • Himalayan salt and pepper to taste (just a tiny pinch will do)

1. Mix all ingredients together.

2. Spread into a layer about 1/3 inch thick.

3. Score.

4. Dehydrate at 140 for 45 minutes, reduce heat and dehydrate at 115 until dry, removing to screen sheets half way through dehydration. 8-10 hours. If you don’t move to mesh screens, you will need to flip.

Note: If you pre-soak your nuts, you will want to make sure you have dehydrated then completely dry before you grind them into flour.

Makes approximately 2 dozen crackers.

Wonder why we start the dehydration so high? Read here: Dehydration Primer

Thank you. I think I did read that then….but, then, it was late,…..like now…. and I have obviously not remembered…..thank you, again.

I love your site, your recipes, and, most of all, your kindness.

Yes, you should always flip your crackers during dehydration.

I really really want to try some of your cracker recipes but I am allergic to almonds. What can I use in it place when making your recipe?

Dana January 25, 2013 at 9:24 am

Ditto Nikki’s post – is there any substitute here for almonds? Thank you!

I’m wondering if anyone has a source for this lovely knobbed rolling pin in Canada ?
of all the places found in a search, including amazon – no one will ship to Canada
and I just loved the idea of using it for the crackers

and thanks Susan for such a great site and great books too !

How long will these crackers keep for? I would like to make a big batch & freeze but want to see if they will hold up.
Thanks!

Susan June 22, 2013 at 1:26 pm

Freezing introduces moisture. You would probably have to re-dehydrate.

I do not have a dehydrator or access to one, is it possible to do this in the oven? I am very new to raw food cooking. Thank you.
