Crunchy Sesame Crackers

Crunchy Sesame Crackers

A combination of vitamin E and monounsaturated almond flour with sesame seeds rich in iron and calcium make these crackers ultra-nutritious, not to mention tasty! These crispy snacks are delicious on their own or pair nicely with various dips (guacamole, hummus, salsa). The best part, they are super easy to make and this recipe yields 96 crackers!

Ingredients

  • 3 cups almond flour
  • 11⁄2 teaspoons sea salt
  • 1 cup sesame seeds
  • 2 eggs, whisked until frothy

  4. Place one half of the dough in the center of each lined sheet
  5. Cut another piece of parchment paper and place it over one of the balls of dough
  6. Roll dough out between the two pieces of parchment paper, until it is 1⁄8 inch thick and covers the entire baking sheet; remove top paper and repeat process with the other piece of dough
  7. Cut the dough with a knife or pizza cutter into 2 inch squares

    I am just curious why it is not good to roast almonds, or use almond oil to cook with, but it is ok to bake ground almonds. wouldn’t the oils in the ground nuts become rancid as well? I am new to this stuff and find it pretty confusing

  • You are 100% correct that you should avoid damaging your fats through heating them! Personally, I consider toasted nuts a “treat” item that are not truthfully 100% on the core or advanced plan. We did some research in writing Maximized Living Nutrition Plans to learn that cooking flax seeds does not alter the Omega 3’s, however cooking flax oil sure does. Consider baked nuts/seeds to be treat … Don’t consume them every day!
