About this Recipe

By: Amanda Higgins

Many moons ago my daughter had to go on a very restrictive eating program to reduce inflammation and candida in her body. These little crackers saved the day. They are dairy, yeast & gluten free but taste lovely. They stay crunchy in an air tight container for weeks.

Chickpea flour is full of healthy nutrients. It is a great alternative to wheat flour, it is lower in carbohydrates and calories yet richer in protein and fiber. A great blood sugar balancing snack.



2 cups of oat flour

2 cups of chickpea flour

2 teaspoons salt

1 teaspoon baking powder

4 teaspoons chopped fresh or dried rosemary

1 large egg

¼ cup of good quality olive oil

¼ cup of coconut oil for brushing the cracker before baking

extra salt and freshly ground pepper for dusting


Step by Step Instructions

Step 1

In a large bowl combine the dry ingredients and give it a really good stir. Add the egg, olive oil and a ¼ cup water, using your hands mix this into a dough. Keep another ¼ cup of water spare and use it teaspoon at a time until the dough is nice a soft, not too dry and not sloppy.

Step 2

Tip the dough out onto a surface and roll it out about 2mm thick. I tend to this in two portions otherwise there is too much dough to manage. If the dough is a bit crumbly simply push it back together. Using a fluted pastry cutter, cut out circles and lay them on trays. Re-roll the scraps until you have used up all the dough.

Step 3

Preheat the oven to 180ºC.Cover the trays and put them in the fridge for about 30 minutes, to allow the dough to rest.

Step 4

Using a teaspoon, smear the top of each cracker with a little coconut oil, sprinkle with salt and freshly cracked pepper. Bake in the oven for about 25 minutes until golden brown.

Step 5

These crackers keep for a few weeks in an airtight container. Serve topped with hummus, avocado, cream cheese or any other delicious topping of your choice.
