Ingredients

  • 150 grams spinach (fresh or frozen and thawed, 5.3 oz)
  • 1 1/2 cups almond flour (fresh or frozen and thawed, 5.3 oz)
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour (fresh or frozen and thawed, 5.3 oz)
  • 1/2 cup flax seed meal (fresh or frozen and thawed, 5.3 oz)
  • 1/4 cup butter (fresh or frozen and thawed, 5.3 oz)
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili peppers (fresh or frozen and thawed, 5.3 oz)
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese (fresh or frozen and thawed, 5.3 oz)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (fresh or frozen and thawed, 5.3 oz)

Instructions

  • Fill a sauce pan with water and bring to a boil over a high heat.
  • Once simmering, add the spinach and cook for just about a minute until wilted.
  • Transfer the leaves into a bowl with cold water.
  • Then, strain and squeeze the water out of the leaves.
  • If you're using frozen and thawed spinach, make sure you squeeze any water out.
  • Place in a blender or food processor and pulse until smooth.
  • When done, set aside.
  • Meanwhile, mix the dry ingredients: almond flour, coconut flour, flaxmeal, cumin, chili flakes, salt and Parmesan cheese.
  • Add the spinach and softened butter.
  • Using your hands, mix until well combined.
  • Wrap the dough in a foil and place in the fridge for 30-60 minutes.
  • Then, preheat the oven to 200 °C/ 400 °F.
  • Remove the wrapping and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  • Place another piece of parchment paper on top and roll out until the dough is about 1/2 cm / 1/4 inch thin.
  • Alternatively, use a nonstick silicon covered roller and a silicon mat like I did in this tortilla recipe.
  • I rolled the dough out directly in the baking sheet and that's how I achieved the square shape.
  • Using a pizza cutter, cut the dough into 16 equal pieces.
  • Place in the oven and bake for 18-20 minutes.
  • They are not as crunchy as regular crackers: if you prefer a crunchier texture, bake for additional 15-20 minutes on 125 °C/ 260 °F.
  • Try with salmon paté or guacamole on top.
  • Enjoy!
