Flaxseed and carrot crackers

Ingredients

100g   Carrot pulp or finely grated
60 g    Ground almonds
90 g    Whole flaxseed
½ tsp  Sea salt
1 tsp   Garlic powder or finely grated fresh garlic
1tbsp  Herbs or spices such as fennel seeds, thyme or friendly chopped rosemary

Instructions

Preheat the oven to fan 180C.

Combine all the ingredients with your hands to make a dough, don’t overmix otherwise it becomes too moist. Make sure the carrots have been squeeze so that is fairly dry.

Bring the dough together into a ball and roll it between 2 sheets of baking parchment to a 3 mm thickness. When rolling out, try and roll out into a neat rectangle with straight edges as this will make easy to snap off evenly sized baked crackers.

Keeping the top layer of baking parchment in place, gently mark the dough through the paper into 5 cm squares with the back of a knife. Otherwise use a cookie cutter.  Carefully peel back the top piece of baking paper.

Transfer the bottom layer directly onto the oven shelf.

Bake in the oven for 12 minutes, and then check crackers. The ones on the outside will be nicely toasted and golden. Snap these off and put to one side (they will crisp as they cool). Return the rest of the crackers to the oven for a few more minutes until also crisp and toasted.

Leave the crackers to cool on a wire rack for 20 min, and then finish snapping them and enjoy alone or serve with a dip. These will keep for 1 week in a sealed container in the fridge.
