Here’s a simple sea salt cracker that is easy to make, and can take on other flavors if added, such as garlic, sesame seeds, or other seasonings and herbs. I did make one batch with sesame and poppy seeds, for a simple seeded cracker, which I will post separately.
These crackers go well with dips and cheese plates. The cheese in this photo is my homemade herb and onion goat cheese which I’ll post soon as well.
Tip The more you bake them, the crunchier they will be.

Almond Saltine Cracker
Update 12/3/13: A tester has had great success using flaxseed meal in place of the egg. She said she actually preferred it, and the texture was more “cracker-like”.
To replace the egg with flaxseed meal combine 1 tablespoon of ground flaxseeds with 3 tablespoons of water. Soak for a few minutes and then add to the batter.
- 2 cups (192 g) blanched ground almond flour
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
- 1 large egg
- 1 tablespoon olive oil (or butter)
- extra salt to sprinkle on top of the crackers
- Preheat your oven to 350°F (180°C or gas mark 4).
- Combine the flour and salt in a bowl and blend well.
- Add the egg and oil, and blend and shape the mixture into two balls of dough.
- Place each dough ball on a non-stick baking mat, then place a piece of parchment paper (or other non-stick mat) over the ball and roll the dough into a thin layer.
- Score the crackers with a pizza cutter and sprinkle extra sea salt lightly across the cracker sheet.
- Bake for about 15 minutes, or until they start to lightly brown.
- Cool for about 15 minutes and break apart into crackers. Store in a sealed container.
