Paleo “no bread” crisp breads

My husband adores anything savoury and hearty, cheese and biscuits with lashings of chutney are probably his all time favourite thing. He’s been my biggest supporter since I gave up dairy and gluten ten months ago and went Paleo and has himself achieved so many health benefits in doing so.

I decided to try making him some gluten and dairy free crisp breads with some added cumin for flavour. I served them with some homemade beetroot dip, tiger tomatoes, boiled eggs and olives. He loved the crisp breads so much that they have been requested as a permanent fixture. They couldn’t be more simple to make and one recipe makes a very large batch which you can keep in a tin for up to a week- if they aren’t devoured before then.

What you need:
Makes around 16 crackers

*50g almonds
*50g sunflower seeds
*50g linseeds
*50g pumpkin seeds (I usually buy this mixed bag of seeds from Sainsbury’s which includes sesame seeds)
* 1/2 – 3/4 tsp salt
*1tsp cumin *OPTIONAL
*1 egg
*1/4 cup /0.5dl olive oil

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 180°c
  • Place almonds in to food processor and bring until coarse. Add in all the rest of the seeds, cumin and salt and pulse for 3-4 seconds ( I like to keep mine relatively chunky)
  • Place mixture in to a large bowl and add egg and olive oil
  • Mix well until fully combined
  • Place dough on a baking sheet with greaseproof paper
  • Place another layer of greaseproof paper on top and begin to roll the mixture out until thin
  • Remove baking paper and roughly cut in to squares of triangles (the mixture will not be able to be cut one cooked)
  • Bake for 15 minutes (do not be alarmed if there appears to be a foam on top of the mixture when you take it out)
  • Store in a sealed container

Suitable for: Gluten-Free, Grain-Free, Dairy-Free, Vegetarian,  Paleo

I really want to try and make some vegan cheese to try with these biscuits. If you know of any good recipes I would love to hear them!

  1. I’ve been making these crackers for a while now and they are very well received! I’ve never seen Tiger Tomatoes before, they look gorgeous. Do you grow them yourself?

    • Yes they are delicious aren’t they! So versatile too… I picked the tiger tomatoes up yesterday from Marks and Spencer. I had never seen them before either but they are ever so flavoursome and delicious. I picked 8 up for £2 (I think they were reduced). I am so glad I tried them though, I am going to look in to growing my own as soon as we move house. :o)

  2. Loved these nut breads. Mine didn’t come out as lovely and neat as yours but I have 6 in a sealed container ready to be devoured. I made them last night. A great quick snack. Beats picking up a bar of chocolate. 😉

  4. please could you tell me why there are two amounts of sunflower seeds in the recipe? Is the second 25g amount of sunflower seeds a misprint or is it supposed to be something else? I have just made them and they seem to be ok (still too hot and foamy at the mo). I just wondered if you had added chia seeds instead? Thanks for the recipe – have started Paleo eating a couple of months ago and still trying to find munchy savoury things like this.

    • Hi Hilary- It looks like it was a misprint- thank you for spotting it. You could of course add chia seeds too though- probably no more than a tablespoon though. I actually made these again the other day and completely blended the seeds and nuts to a powder – which made them more “biscuity” – they worked brilliantly. Let me know if you enjoy them once they have de-foamed and cooled!

      • Thank you! Yes they have worked well although I might use slightly less salt next time. I will try your extra blitzing method also – that sounds good. I am not vegan so I think they will be great for me with an occasional sheep’s feta treat. Thanks again.

    • Ah, this is so so good to hear! I am thrilled that you enjoyed it! They are one of my favourites too. I am all for the non fussy ingredients… If you can’t buy it in a supermarket / health food store then there’s no point!
