The Best Ever Grain Free Crackers

I might have to start cheating on my Larabars with these crackers as my new go-to snacks – ok maybe not cheat but add them to my snack arsenal.

Once again, I have to give credit to my friend Vanessa for introducing these absolutely A-mazing delectables into my life. Is it possible that a gluten-free,grain-free,dairy-free and sugar-free snack can be so delicious AND healthy at the same time?

I tried 3 different variations of this recipe, and so I’m posting the one that, in my opinion, turned out and tasted the best. I’ll share the other two variations in the recipe notes so you can try it for yourself. 

But I digress….

Grain Free Crackers - Island Girl on A Farm. This is a fantastic clean eating snack that is dairy,grain,sugar and gluten free. The fresh rosemary adds a delightful and sensational tease on the taste buds. Great alternative to traditional crackers.

Quick Overview:

You’ll need: rosemary, almond flour, raw shelled sunflower seeds, dried unsweetened cranberries, olive oil, sea salt, chia seeds and hemp seeds

Combine all ingredients in your food processor or mixer until formed into a dough, then form dough into a ball.

Place dough between either two pieces of parchment paper or use a baking mat and parchment paper. I love and recommend the Silpat silicone baking mat. Using a rolling pin, roll out dough to 1/8 inch thickness.

Once dough is rolled out completely, use a pizza cutter to cut dough into rectangles, squares or any other shape your heart desires :). Transfer baking mat or parchment paper to a baking tray or cookie sheet and bake away for 15 minutes! Keeping scrolling to get the full recipe. Yummm…

Extra Tips:

  • Almond flour  can be purchased at your local grocery store in the nutrition section, online or sometimes in the bulk food section
  • Same thing applies for coconut flour
  • If you are dying to make this recipe right away and don’t have fresh rosemary, you can always substitute for 1 tsp dried rosemary – but the fresh rosemary is what really gives these crackers their delightful taste.

Warning, these can be addictive( as I reach for my 5th cracker while enjoying a cup of green tea.) You may need to make a double(or triple) batch of these because sharing doesn’t come so easy…I warned you 🙂

I would love to hear your thoughts in the comments below, and if you tried any of the variations I suggested.

Zucchini Breakfast Waffles

I have to thank my friend Vanessa for sharing this wonderful recipe with me. Until this entered my world, my breakfast had been limited to oatmeal, my spinach feta cheese omelette and a few other pancake recipes.

Zucchini breakfast waffles are clean eating, delicious and healthy. They are also a grain-free, sugar-free and gluten-free alternative to traditional waffles. I’m sure if you didn’t have a waffle maker that you could use this recipe to make zucchini pancakes and it would out turn out just as good.

We start by combining grated zucchini with eggs, coconut milk, coconut oil. Then we add coconut and almond flour, along with “pumpkin pie” spices( cinnamon, nutmeg and ground ginger) for a nice, thick consistency.

Scoop mixture onto the waffle iron, bake until done…Voila!

Tip: Make this ahead of time the day before and refrigerate or freeze them. Pop them into the toaster and eat them as is or top with raw organic honey, coconut oil, maple syrup or your favorite sugar-free jam.
