Rosemary Almond Crackers (raw, vegan, gluten-free)

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites

Rosemary-Almond-Crackers1This cracker was made with my girlfriend Tracy, in mind.  She was so sweet to bring me over some fresh ground rosemary that she is growing in her yard.

There is something quite amazing when it comes to fresh herbs. You could easily create a personalized cracker by using this recipe as a base, just change out the herbs to a desired taste!

This batter creates a nice hardy, dense, and snappy crackers.  The rosemary isn’t over powering so it will pair well with just about any spread, dip or cheese.

You will be surprised as to how quick this recipe goes together.  Everything goes in the food processor, blitz it together and roll it out into crackers.  The hardest part is waiting for them to dehydrate. :)  Please enjoy this recipe. Blessings, amie sue


yields 40 crackers

  • 3 cups almond flour
  • 1 cup gluten-free, rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup ground flax seeds
  • 3/4 -1  cup water

  1. In the food processor, fitted with the “S” blade combine the almond meal, oats, ground flax, nutritional yeast, rosemary, salt and paper.  Process until the oats are broken down and all flavors are well mixed
  2. Add 3/4 cup of  water and process until it creates a batter-like texture.  If needed add a little more water until it reaches the right consistency.
  3. Divid the batter in half and roll it out 1/4” thick in between two non-stick sheets.
  4. Remove the top non-stick sheet and flip the crackers over onto the mesh sheet that comes with the dehydrator.
  5. Score into desired shapes and sizes.
  6. Sprinkle coarse salt on top.
  7. Dehydrate at 145 degrees for 1 hour, then reduce to 115 for roughly 12 hours.

One of the greatest joys when creating raw food recipes is experimenting with different ingredients… a practice that I highly encourage.  Daily I get questions regarding substitutions.  Of course we all might have different dietary needs and tastes which could necessitate altering a recipe.    I love to share with you what I create for myself, my husband, friends and family.  I spend a lot of time selecting the right ingredients with a particular goal in mind, looking to build a certain flavor and texture.
So as you experiment with substitutions, remember they are what they sound like, they are substitutes for the preferred item.  Generally they are not going to behave, taste, or have the same texture as the suggested ingredient.   Some may work, and others may not and I can’t promise what the results will be unless I’ve tried them myself.   So have fun, don’t be afraid,  and remember, substituting is how I discovered many of my unique dishes.

    Hi Amie Sue

    is there an alternative for the yeast? I can´t take any …. is it necessary? it is just for the flavor or does it actually have a noticeable effect on the texture?


    • amie-sue says:

      It is there for flavor Gema, so you can just leave it out. :)

      • Mary says:

        I also don’t use yeast and I’ve noticed you use it often in recipes. Is there another spice or food you would recommend to replace it with? Thank you.

        • amie-sue says:

          Hello Mary,

          Nutritional yeast gives a recipes a “cheesy” flavor and I really don’t know of any other spice that replaces that flavor profile. If you wish to omit it from recipes, that is fine. You can add any other spice that you like. Taste test as you build the recipe. Blessings, amie sue

    Hi, Amie Sue. I am wrestling with the rolled oats. Trying to improvise. I have sprouted oat flour, raw almond flour and ground flax meal and I know it can vary sometimes w/measurements. Do you know how much to use in place of whole almond, rolled oats and flax seeds? Love your site by the way. Recently bought your veggie bouquet book. It’s awesome as are YOU with your creative spin on the raw! Love your recipes! Will be making several of your recipes today thru New Years.

    • amie-sue says:

      Hello ALetha,

      I don’t use whole almonds in this recipe… it calls for 3 cups almond flour. Same with the flax, the recipes calls for 1/2 cup ground flax seeds… so I am confused exactly what you are asking. For the oats, use 1 cup of your oat flour… should be ok.

      So happy to hear that you enjoyed the ebook. :) And thank you for the kind words. Merry Christmas! amie sue
