Almond and Sesame Seed Crackers (Gluten Free, Low Fodmap, Clean Eating, Dairy Free, Vegan)

YUM YUM YUM!!!!!     These are absolutely amazing and another great hit with the kids (gotta love it when 5 kids gives one of my recipes the thumbs up!) So simple to make with not many ingredients.    I also, after speaking to the Shepherd Works dietition was told that rice malt syryp was low fodmap so I could use this natural sweetener in my recipes, its made from rice, yep rice!!   Rice Malt Syrup  is a versatile sweetener made by culturing rice with enzymes to breakdown the starches and then cooking until it becomes a syrup.   And it tastes great, kinda like honey but with half the sugar, it looks like honey too.   Will be using this in my cooking as often as I can now.   These crackers are great as it has no flour, perfect low carb treat!!

I should also mention these are also great uncooked, just roll into balls, add some flaxseed or protein powder (wont be low fodmap though depending what is in the powder) for a good protien ball or even some choc chips.

Almond and Sesame Seed Crackers

1 cup almond meal (or flour)

½ cup sesame seeds

1 tsp cinnamon

pinch of sea salt

3 tbsp rice malt syrup (or maple syrup, if not on low fodmap diet then you can use honey)

Preheat oven to 160 degrees.   In a medium bowl combine almond meal, sesame seeds, cinnamon, salt and syrup.  Roll out between 2 pieces of baking paper trying to get it as rectangle as you can and about 1/3 cm thick.  The thinner the dough the crispier the cracker.   When on the baking paper cut into bite size squares and you can transfer the whole sheet without moving the squares onto a baking tray and bake for 20 minutes but keep an eye on it as they can brown up quickly close to that time.   Remove from oven when golden, you may have to turn the tray half way through cooking.   Leave on tray to cool for 30 minutes and carefully snap off each square.

You can make different options with flavours too, if you arent on a low fodmap diet add 1 tsp garlic powder instead of cinnamon or add other herbs like basil or oregano instead of cinnamon)

    • Definitely give them a go, they are really yummy, you can even swap the almond for hazelnut or cashews if you prefer. I freeze mine and also the other hazelnut crackers on my blog so I have snacks readily available.
