Baked Sweet Almond Crackers

Let’s start making the Sweet Almond crackers

These deliciously sweet, gluten-free Sweet Almond Crackers start with a combination of dry ingredients. Using almond flour, tapioca starch, and flaxseed meal are the base of these crackers. I try not to use too much salt so you want to make sure you season to taste, and if you like add garlic powder. I have even used a few herbs for that wonderful savory flavor!

Prep your Ingredients

Now you want to add the liquid ingredients such as olive oil, maple syrup, and water. Oil helps create that classic, crispy cracker texture, while maple syrup balances the flavor and water brings everything together.

Stir in the liquid ingredients

Your last step is just rolling out the dough and cutting them into squares with a knife. And there are no cookie cutters needed! Finally, bake the crackers for ~20 minutes and let them cool completely (I know that will be hard because I just know you are dying to try them.

I hope you LOVE these Almond Crackers! They’re:

Crisp
Nutty
Sweet
Salty
Flavorful
& oh so snackable!

Pack them in lunchboxes as a healthful snack or serve them with your favorite dip! They pair well with my Caramelized Onion Dip.

Sweet Almond Crackers

Yield: 5 Servings (11 crackers each)
Prep Time: 7 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 27 minutes

Ingredients

  • 3/4 Cup almond flour
  • 2/3 Cup tapioca flour
  • 1 1/2 brown flaxseed meal (ground flax seeds)
  • 1/2 Tsp sea salt
  • 1/8 Tsp baking soda
  • 3/4 Tsp maple syrup
  • 2 1/2 Tbsp water
  • 1/8 Tsp garlic powder (optional)
  • 2 Tbsp Olive Oil (optional)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 325° (162 C) and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium mixing bowl, all the almond flour, tapioca flour, flaxseed meal, salt, baking soda, and garlic powder (optional). Stir to combine, making sure you break up any clumps.
  3. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and add the olive oil and maple syrup. Use a fork and with clean hands, work the oil and maple syrup into the flour mixture evenly. Stir in the water. Using your hands, knead the dough in a bowl to form a nice cohesive dough. If you see it is too dry, add additional water 1 Tsp at a time.
  4. Place a piece of parchment paper over your work surface and place the dough on top. Shape your dough into a rectangle as much as possible and place another piece of parchment on top of it. Roll the dough out until it is about 1/16 inch thick. Now using a pizza cutter or knife cut the crackers into roughly 1 1/2" squares. Use a metal spatula or knife to transfer the crackers onto your parchment-lined baking sheet.
  5. Bake the crackers for 18-22 minutes until golden. Your taking time depends on the thickness of the crackers so watch them carefully. They start to brown quickly near the end. Let crackers cool completely on the pan before eating.
  6. You can store any leftover crackers in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days, in the refrigerator for 1-2 weeks, or in the freezer for up to 1 month.

Notes

Oven times vary so you want to keep an eye on the crackers and note your exact baking time.

You can also add any other seasonings you desire.
