Nut Thins (LC, GF, SF)

I love these little crackers. And they are so easy to make too!


 

Ingredients:

1 cup ground nuts or seeds
1 egg white
1 pinch salt or seasonings of choice (you could also make these sweet and add cinnamon or other spices)

Preparation:

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.
In a bowl, mix together the nut flour, egg white, and salt until it forms a ball of pasty dough. It’ll be a bit sticky.

(I used a variety of seeds in this one in the picture. Sesame seeds, shelled hemp seeds, almonds and fresh herbs.)

Place on a large piece of parchment paper – about the size of a cookie sheet.

Top with another piece of parchment paper. Using a rolling pin  roll out the dough as thin as you can get it. Try to make it take up the whole cookie sheet if you can. And I REALLY mean super thin! The dough will look almost transparent in places!

**DON’T try and do this without the parchment paper! It will all turn into a sticky mess on everywhere and you’ll be chipping cracker bits off your cookie sheet for hours to come!**


Peel off the top layer of paper.

Score the dough with a knife or Pizza cutter into whatever size crackers you want.  Slide the parchment paper with the scored dough onto a cookie sheet.

Bake in the 325 oven for 10 minutes and then check on the crackers. You are looking for them to color ever so slightly. A little color means crispy, toasty nutty flavor and holding together nicely, but a lot of color means burned nut taste.

Remove the crackers that are done, usually the ones around the edges are done first.  Place the others back in the oven until desired color. Really keep an eye on those crackers. It can go really fast at this stage. Sometimes not even a minute or two more before the next ones come out!

Keep doing this until they are all done!

Cool completely and store in an airtight container.

 

Here’s a close up shot to show HOW thin they are once baked  …

… and how well they still hold up even with thick and heavy dips like this spinach, artichoke and parmesan dip. YUM by the way! Smile

 

You can of course use all sorts of combinations of nuts, seeds, spices and seasonings. Find your favorite combo and enjoy!

The carb count will depend on what nuts or seeds you used Smile
