I found this yummy recipe on a favourite blog of mine “Delighted Momma” . It’s a wonderful blog and the lady who writes it is very inspiring, funny and not to mention gorgeous and very clever! I love to try out her ideas, so made these crackers (or some might call them biscuits) and have adapted it slightly. I made these gluten free but you could easily substitute the GF flour for regular flour.
Crunchy Cinnamon Crackers (GF)
- 2 cups gluten free flour blend
- 1 cup almond meal
- 1/4 cup sugar of sugar substitute such as Stevia
- 1 tablespoon of cinnamon
- 1 egg
- 1/4 cup of vegetable oil (I used rice bran)
- aproximately 1 tablesoon of milk (or water)
- Cooking oil spray
Pre-heat oven to 180 centigrade and line two baking trays with baking paper.
Combine dry ingredients in a bowl. Wisk eggs with oil and stir into the dry mix then use your hands to from into a dough. If it is too dry still, add the milk. I used my dough straight away but you can chill it for 20 mins if you like.
Place some baking parchment onto your work surface and lightly spray with oil . Roll the dough out using a floured rolling pin. You might find it easier to place another peice of baking parchment on top of the dough and roll it out between the two sheets. It should ideally be around 2-3 mm thick.
Use cookie cutters to cut out your shapes or a pizza roller to slice it into sqaures. Re-roll the etra dough and repeat until its all used up.
Bake for around 15 mins. They might need a little less or longer, up to 20 mins even, it depends on the thickness of the crackers. Remove them when they start to look a nice golden brown. Mmmm your house will smell divine! Time to pop the kettle on….
This recipe is super easy and a great way to make a yummy snack that you and your littlies will love, whilst knowing exactly what has gone into them. I like to bag these up into little snack sized pouches, perfect for my son’s lunchbox, and a much nicer, healthier (and cheaper) treat alternative to supermarket pre-packed kids biscuits which are full of ingredients I can’t even pronounce!
