Here is a slight variation on the almond saltine cracker recipe, and all I added was poppy and sesame seeds, and some egg white brushed on the top before baking. The cheese in the background is my herbed goat cheese, which I’ll share soon as well.
I love adding lots of stuff on crackers, especially seeds and seasoning. So try adding your favorite seasoning and you might be pleasantly surprised. I’m going to try a cinnamon toast cracker next.

Seeded Almond 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 of blanched ground almond flour
- 1/2 teaspoon of sea salt
- 1 large egg
- 1 egg white in a bowl with a brush
- 1 tablespoon of olive oil (or butter)
- 1 tablespoon of poppy seeds
- 1 tablespoon of sesame seeds
- extra salt to sprinkle on top of the crackers
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- 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
- Place each dough ball on a non-stick baking mat, then place a piece

dough into a thin layer.
- Score the crackers with a pizza cutter and sprinkle extra sea salt

- Brush the top of the cracker sheets with egg white, and then sprinkle
the seeds (and a small amount of sea salt) evenly over each 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
