Almond Crackers

I realized today that many of the recipes we use as staples in our house are not listed on my blog. This one we could not live without. We could also not live without Katie Kemper who makes us a huge batch every month that we keep in the freezer. Thank you Katie!!!!!

Almond Crackers
from Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride's GAPS book

2 Tbsp of butter (or ghee, coconut oil or lard)
2 cups ground nuts (almonds, hazels, walnuts, etc) (we use Trader Joe's Almond Meal)
2-3 Tbsp of water

You can improvise by adding to this mixture herbs, cinnamon, paprika, cayenne pepper, black pepper, salt, grated cheddar cheese (if tolerated) or peanut butter.

Mix the ingredients well. Roll out thinly on a board, sprinkled with some ground nuts. Cut into squares or any other shapes. Sprinkle some coarse salt, poppy seeds, caraway seeds or coriander seeds on top.

Bake in the oven on well-greased baking paper at 300F for 10-15 min.

These have a hard time staying together but do a little better if you keep them in the freezer.

  1. I was searching GAPS cracker recipes, and of course I've seen this one before, but your blog title just cracked me up. I am the same way. When did I become a hippie? My husband teases me about it, but I'm just doing my best (even if it does appear a little hippie-ish.
