Hazelnut Parmesan Crackers

Overview

These crackers are a great way to utilize the hazelnut meal left over from making home made nut milk!  They are simple to make, with just five ingredients that are full of flavor, highly nutritious and packed with protein.  This recipe yields four servings are also keto-friendly, with just 3 net carbs per serving. 

Ingredients

1 cup hazelnut meal (leftover after making nut milk)
1/2 cup parmesan
1 egg
2 garlic cloves pressed
2 teaspoon Italian herbs
hazelnut parmesan crackers
hazelnut flour keto
Italian herbs
garlic parmesan keto crackers

Instructions

1)  Preheat oven to 275 Fahrenheit
2)  Combine ingredients in a bowl, and mix until a ball of dough has formed.
3)  Crumbled the dough evenly around a greased sheet of parchment paper or foil. Place another sheet above it, and roll out the dough so that the crumbles form a single thin sheet of dough. Remove the top sheet and play with the dough. It’s pretty malleable, so if there are any cracks, you can just push the cracks together. I also pushed the edges in and together and broke off “dangleys” and pushed them into the main body of the dough. In the end, I had a nice rectangular sheet of dough.
4)  Using a cutting/dividing device (pizza cutter, bench scraper, butter knife, etc.), cut through the dough to form 48 little rectangles. This isn’t an exact science and you can adjust the shapes and sizes in any way you see fit. However, if you want precision, you can always measure the rectangle and do a little math. You can also use a ruler or some other straight guide, place it on the dough and run your cutting device along the guide. With math and a good guide, you can create a perfect batch of squares. I’m more rustic myself … and typically wing it.
5)  Place the parchment or foil on a cookie sheet or thin baking tray.
6)  Bake for roughly 45 minutes, but start checking at 30 minutes. It will crisp on the edges first. You are essentially looking to melt the cheese within the cracker, then remove the moisture. The cracker will darken and firm up. When the sheet is the same even slightly darker color, across the enter sheet (the edges and the center are all the same color), remove the sheet from the oven.
7)  Let the sheet cool, then pick up the crackers and snap where the perforations were cut.
8)  Ready to eat. YUM!
