Sage and Thyme Grain Free Crackers

My recipes are grain free, refined sugar-free and most are dairy free. When I first went grain free I started scouring the internet for recipes to look at. Interesting enough I didn’t find many. I found a ton of gluten-free. They are not the same thing. All grain-free recipes are gluten free but not all gluten-free are grain free.

I have created recipes for almost 30 years. In the beginning, I didn’t take the time to write them down. It was my husband actually encouraged me to write them down as he wanted them again. So I started writing them down and sharing pictures on Facebook and my friends said you have to share that recipe. Hence, that is why I am here.

Since writing, my first recipe for grain free crackers was a success I wanted to try different flavors of crackers. This one is really great. You could use these as an appetizer meat, cheese, and cracker plate. These crackers really are the bomb. I usually have leftover crackers and I get to have cheese and crackers which is such a treat for me as most grain free crackers cost an arm and a leg.

These crackers can be made up to a week in advance. Use in my Southern Chicken Fried Chicken, or use with some Blueberry Jam, Strawberry Preserves, Roasted Strawberry Jam, Mouthwatering Orange Marmalade, Apricot Preserves,These crackers give my Southern Chicken Fried Chicken a nice crispy flavor and texture. My husband actually prefers these to the one I used to make with regular flour.

 

2 cups cassava flour

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon of sage

1/2 teaspoon of thyme

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1/2 teaspoon onion powder

1/2 teaspoon My BBQ Seasoning

1/2 teaspoon basil

1/8 teaspoon turmeric

3/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon water

1/3 cup avocado oil

Preheat oven to 375 F. Mix cassava flour, salt, sage, thyme, onion powder, garlic powder, BBQ seasoning, basil, turmeric and whisk together. Add oil to flour and seasonings blend until well incorporated. Add water to the dough. Mix thoroughly and form into a ball. If it doesn’t stick together add more water a tablespoon at a time. Keep in mind that cassava flour absorbs more liquid than regular wheat flour. Divide the dough in half. Lay down two sheets of plastic wrap slightly overlapping. Form half the dough into a rectangle and lay on top of plastic wrap. Lay down two more sheets of plastic wrap slightly overlapping on top the cracker dough. Roll into 1/8 inch. Remove top plastic wrap layer. Using a pastry cutter and a ruler cut out squares or rectangles out. Oil a baking sheet with your hand or pastry brush. Using a spatula carefully lift up the cracker and place on an oiled cookie sheet. Bake 15 – 30 minutes or until slightly brown. Allow to cool then move to an airtight container.
