Caraway Seed Crackers

The fragrance and taste of caraway seeds always reminds me of the sourdough bread my granny used to favour. She would get a thick slice, smear it with half an inch of  butter and wash it down with a strong cup of tea.

Caraway seeds are full of great health benefits, including a fabulous source of anti-oxidants as well as being a digestive and will give you lovely breath :).

These crackers have a wonderful fragrance and taste that combines so well with cheese, pate, avocado or any other dips and savoury toppings. They are wonderfully crunchy, which us SCDers can miss sometimes.

Caraway Seed Crackers

1 cup almonds with skin

1 cup walnuts

2 tsp sea salt

¼ tsp cayenne

1 tsp caraway seeds

2 egg whites

1 Tbs coconut oil

¼ cup tahini

Soak the nuts overnight and then drain them. Place them into a food processor and process until finely chopped. Add the rest of the ingredients and continue to process until well combined.

Place some baking paper onto a baking tray. Place the dough onto the paper and smooth it out onto the paper. Then place another piece of baking paper onto the top of the dough and with a rolling pin roll over the paper to flatten the dough evenly until its about 2 mm thick. Remove the top paper.

Bake in the oven for 10 minutes, then turn of the oven and leave the crackers in the oven until it has cooled down. With a large knife cut out the crackers to any size you like and store in an airtight container.
