Recipe type: Appetizer, Snack
Cuisine: American
Serves: 20 (serving size 2 crackers)
  • 2 cups (240 grams) chickpea flour, plus extra for rolling out dough
  • ⅓ cup (50 grams) finely grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup avocado oil
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • ⅓ cup warm water or more, if needed
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl whisk together the chickpea flour, Parmesan, Italian seasoning, and salt. Add the oil, maple syrup, mustard and water, stirring until a smooth, stiff dough forms. (Add more water if needed until the mixture comes together.)
  3. Divide the dough into quarters. Dust a surface with chickpea flour and roll the out dough very thin - to 1/16th of an inch. Stamp out crackers using a 2½ inch cookie cutter and place on the baking sheets. Poke decorative holes in the dough if desired.
  4. Repeat with remaining dough.
  5. Bake on bottom racks of oven for 15 to 20 minutes until golden brown around the edges, rotating baking sheets halfway through the cooking time.
  6. Cool completely before removing from the baking sheets.
