Healthy Wheat-Free Crispy Crackers

You can find many variations of these crackers on the internet, as folks adapt it to their tastes. As far as low-carb eating goes, this is a pure beauty. They are:

  • sugar-, wheat-, grain-, and gluten-free;
  • rich in fiber, fat, and protein;
  • lend itself perfectly to spread your butter on;
  • fit in Paleo, Keto, and LCHF;
  • crispy and chewy at the same time;
  • very simple to make, as they require no specific appliances.

As far as I could track it (and I am ready to stand corrected), it appeared first in The Real Meal Revolution by Tim Noakes. Below is my adaptation; I have marked the changes I made to the original, so if you want a less flavored version, you can always fall back on the more plain variation. The quantities are adjusted for my 11″ x 14″ baking tray. Also, these are on a salty side; decrease salt if prefer less of it.
