Paleo Everything Bagel Crackers
These Paleo Everything Bagel Crackers are EVERYTHING! I love crackers, mainly because I am love dip even more and need a crunchy vessel! We had been eating Hu Kitchen Paleo crackers, which are amazing, but like $7 a box and we’ve been going through a box a day or day and a half. Don’t judge; it’s a small box. But either way, it’s an unsustainable habit, so I needed to find a way to make my own. When thinking about what kind of cracker I wanted, I saw my “everything but the bagel seasoning” from trader joes on the spice rack, and it was all over. I instantly knew what kind of crackers I’d be making!
Today makes two months in quarantine! However, I’m not sure if that’s too long or too short. I hope other places opening up doesn’t keep us from opening up. It’s so hard when nobody knows anything. There is no right answer. I understand people need to get back to work to be able to put food on the table and feed their families, but at what cost? It’s scary times for everyone. I wish we could all just know how long this was going to last. Wouldn’t it be so much easier if they were like “ok you’re in this till the end of December then everything back to normal?” The uncertainty is driving me nuts! At least I have all this time to create new recipes!
Despite all that’s going on, I am still trying to incorporate better habits into my life, hopefully ones that I continue even after this ends. I have an herb garden kit being delivered from amazon tomorrow, and am SUPER excited about that. Previously I’ve had next to zero success with plants of any kind, but since I’ve been home, my plants are thriving. Hopefully, I’ll be just as successful with the herb garden. I’ll be sure to update all of you about how it goes, and any tips I come up with 🙂
Polly Want a (Gluten-free, Paleo, Keto) Cracker?!
I don’t know why every time I hear the word cracker; I think of a parrot saying, “Polly Want a Cracker?” Then I think of my grandfather’s parent named dicky, who would just scream random curse words and make offensive comments. Allegedly, one time he called my Grandma a “fat-ass,” and that was the end of dicky. Then my parents got a parrot from their friend, and every time a phone would ring, he would say “Hello” in 7 different accents. He had to go through all of them in the same order, EVERY time. It was funny the first 5 or 6 times. Then the OCD parrot quickly became a nuisance.
Anyway enough about birds, back to the crackers! These crackers are great because they are only two ingredients, plus the toppings. If you don’t have ETBTB seasoning, you can make them sesame, poppy, sea salt, and pepper. Get creative with the toppings. I just love everything bagels so much, and these crackers make me feel like I’m eating one 🙂 They are great Keto friendly option as well as Paleo. They come together quicker than you think, and only need to bake for 10 minutes. The dough is easy to work with, and the best part? Think of the things you can dip them in, Guacamole, olive tapenade, which I made the other night and will have a recipe up for soon. It’s so delicious!
Nerdy Health Stuff
First ingredient almonds flour. So le’ts talk about the humble almond for a second. According to the US Dept of Agriculture Americans demands for almonds has increased 400% since 1980. With all the health benefits, it’s no surprise why. The Nutrition Journal did a study that had children and adults replace typical snacks with almonds. Researchers found participants’ intake of nutrients improved. Participants consumed fewer empty calories, solid fats, sodium, saturated fats, carbohydrates, and added sugars. Healthy oils and fats increased significantly, as did magnesium, fiber, and protein by a small margin. Did you know that almonds aren’t technically a tree nut, they are actually a seed of the drupe fruit, more closely related to that of a cherry or plum.
Almond flour should typically contain one ingredient, blanched or unblanched almonds. Nothing else. Blanched means the skins have been removed, and generally is a bit more expensive. Unblanched almond flour, often referred to as almond meal, can be used as a substitute in most recipes, but sometimes cannot, like macaroons. I have found an affordable fine blanched almond flour on amazon here. Our local food stores charge $5 more for a bag half the size. Typically 100 G of almond flour contains 4.3 grams carbohydrates, 54 grams fat, 19 grams protein, 11 grams fiber, 610 kcal. A cup is roughly 95G.
Tips, Recs, Subs
- I highly recommend this brand of almond flour, order here right off amazon. It’s the cheapest and best quality I’ve been able to find.
- If you pulse the dough and it’s still a little dry, you can add a tablespoon of water.
- Toppings, if you don’t have ETBTB seasoning, order through that link. Or you can use sesame seeds or poppy seeds, even sea salt and pepper.
- A pizza cutter is the preferred tool to cut them, but you can also use a knife.
- Placing a piece of parchment paper on top of the dough before you roll it out, will keep it from sticking to the rolling pin.
- Once it’s rolled, and you’ve added the seasoning, put the parchment paper back on top, and gently press the seasoning into the dough.
- Check at 8 minutes, to see if they are done. You might need to leave in for 2 minutes, if they are not crispy brown.
