Rosemary Almond Crackers Two Ways

Last week I posted this recipe for raw Rosemary Honey “Cheese” with Figs. Hiding in the background are the raw Rosemary Almond crackers that go with it. Incorporating the rosemary and cracked pepper into the almonds make the crackers a great compliment to the “cheese”. I promised the raw recipe for the crackers and here it is!



Since I get so many substitution questions, I decided to do something different when I developed this recipe for raw crackers. I made half the batch with golden flax and half the batch with chia seeds. I wanted a really good side-by-side comparison. The chia substituted in for the flax, beautifully. I also decided to skin my almonds after soaking to make a lighter colored cracker. Its a little time consuming but certainly doable. You do not need to skin the almonds for this recipe.



Both crackers came out crunchy and good. I am a firm believer that using fresh golden flax does not leave a “flax” taste that so many people don’t like. In this cracker, all you taste are the almonds, rosemary and cracked pepper. The flavor is deep and mellow. Delightful in your mouth. The chia crackers are a little crunchier, and have a bit of a lighter taste. but not the depth and mellowness of the flax. But both are a great compliment to the Rosemary Honey “Cheese” with figs.

I found chia seeds on sale here: CHIA  It is a pretty good price!

    My almonds did not lose their skins when soaked. Is this because I put them in the refrigerator overnight to soak?

      Hi, Kathy, You have to actually remove them after the soak. They should just pop off. Some might be a little more stubborn but should peel. Cheers!

    Hi, I just transitioned to raw food diet and am loving it, but I do not owe a dehydrator yet in this case what other options do I have?

      You can try baking them with your lowest heat in the oven but just know they will most likely not be raw. And the time will be much shorter. 🙂

    How do you recommend storing these? In a tupperware type container? How long can I expect them to stay fresh?

    • Susan wrote on November 21, 2014

      You can store them in an air-tight container. They will stay fresh for a week or two. If they get soft, just pop them back in the dehydrator. Cheers!
