The flavor combination is irresistible and using ground sunflower seed kernels instead of flour makes these a delicious, low-carb delight.
- Yield: 50 crackers
- 1 cup (145 g) sunflower seeds
- ½ cup (65 g) rice protein powder
- ½ teaspoon xanthan or guar
- ½ teaspoon baking powder
- ½ teaspoon salt, plus more for sprinkling
- 2 tablespoons (28 g) butter, softened
- 1½ tablespoons (3 g) minced fresh rosemary
- 1 cup (115 g) shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
- ½ cup (50 g) shredded Parmesan cheese
- 1 egg white
- 3 tablespoons (45 ml) water
How to Make It
- Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C, or gas mark 4).
- Put the sunflower seeds, rice protein powder, xanthan or guar, baking powder, and salt in a food processor and run it until the sunflower seeds are ground up to the texture of cornmeal or finer.
- With the processor running, add the butter and rosemary. Then work in the cheeses in three or four additions. Add the egg white and then the water. When it forms a soft dough, turn off the processor.
- Line a cookie sheet with parchment. Make a ball of half the dough, put it on the parchment, and then put another sheet of parchment over it. Use a rolling pin to roll the dough out into as thin and even a sheet as you can. Carefully peel off the top sheet of parchment. Using a thin, sharp, straight-bladed knife, score the dough into crackers. Sprinkle them lightly with salt.
- Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden. While they’re baking, roll out and cut the rest of the dough on a second cookie sheet. When the first batch is done, bake the second. Cool on the cookie sheets, re-score to break apart, and store in a snap-top container.
