This grain-free cheesy rosemary cracker recipe makes for the perfect flavorful snack if you’re following the Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD), Gut & Psychology Syndrome (GAPS) Diet, or the low FODMAP Diet. The ingredients are simple, yet the crackers are delicious!
All you need to make this cracker are cheddar cheese, almond flour, extra virgin olive oil, water, sea salt, black pepper, fresh or dried rosemary, and as an optional flavor fresh minced garlic. Of course do not use garlic if you are still on the elimination phase of the low FODMAP diet.
Toss all of the ingredients into a mixing bowl and combine until you get your cracker dough. Press the dough onto a baking sheet and flatten it out evenly. You’ll want your cracker dough to be about 1/2 cm thick. Toss it in the oven until it is nice and crispy and ready for slicing! It is best to slice the crackers with a pizza cutter while they are still warm; otherwise, the crackers may be tough to cut.
Allow the crackers to cool before eating. Store them in an airtight container or resealable bag. You’ll love these grain-free cheesy rosemary crackers on their own, or top them with tuna, chicken or egg salad for a light lunch idea.
