Naturally gluten-free, nutrient dense and anti-inflamatory. These crackers are super quick and easy to make and have the perfect amount of crunchiness. Enjoy with cheese, spreads or make canapés!
Tiger nuts have become popular in the recent years amongst gluten-free eaters. Their flour is slightly sweat and can be used in baking, smoothies or breaded foods. They are not a nut but a tuber, what makes them naturally gluten free and rich in nutrients.
I was amazed when I first started seeing them in the UK and all over the internet, as in Spain they have always been present as the main ingredient in horchata. But now that they are widely available I decided to start using them in my recipes and they are truly great in these crackers.
I love cheese and spreads but since I started eating gluten-free I had given up on crackers. Gluten-free crackers aren’t particularly easy to find and if you do find them they tend to be expensive, depleted of nutrition, and often made with trans fats and sugar.
Only recently I decided to try and make my own, and now I am a bit addicted to them (must admit!). They are really easy (and this comes from a person that it’s not a good baker) and simple, but full of flavour.
With the addition of turmeric and gelatine, these crackers also help to fight inflamation on your body and heal your gut, which makes them twice as good! Recipe if sugar free, nut free and paleo, so it works for many health concious dieters.
Enjoy with spreads, cheese or as a base for canapés at your next party!
