Hemp Seed & Almond Meal Crackers

Hemp Seed & Almond Meal Crackers

My husband still buys plain ol' saltine crackers. I don't even try to dissuade him anymore, but once in awhile I'm tempted to. Recently, he bought several pounds of hemp seed and he likes to just eat it by the spoonful, but I wanted to use it in a recipe other than the usual throw-it-in-a-smoothie or on-a-salad (which is great too). Besides, I want wheat-free goodness!

Hemp seed is a superfood—A heart healthy, brain food, high in protein with many health benefits

I recently saw a raw Zucchini Hemp Banana Bread that sounded interesting, but I didn't have zucchini or bananas and I was in the mood for crackers and I wanted them quick, baked in the oven, to go with a chicken and wild rice soup I had planned for lunch. I found these Grain-Free Almond Sunny Seed Crackers from which I adapted my recipe. 

Yum! I loved these crispy Hemp Seed Crackers! 
(The soup was perfect too!)

Roll out and score


Hemp Seed & Almond Meal Crackers
by Kathy's Kitchen
Cook Time: 15 - 20 minutes

High protein hemp seed crackers, baked to a golden brown.
Ingredients (Approx. 50-60 crackers)
  • 1/2 cup hemp seed
  • 1 and 1/2 cups almond meal (or flour)
  • 2 Tbs. flax seed
  • 2 Tbs. sunflower seeds
  • 1/2 tsp pink salt
  • 2 Tbs. nutritional yeast
  • Pure onion and garlic powders
  • 2 Tbs. olive oil
  • 4 Tbs. cold water
  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  • Mix all ingredients together, adding in olive oil and water last. I did not measure the onion and garlic powders, but sprinkled generously over the batter. Let sit for about 10 minutes.
  • Take half the batter and roll into a ball and place on parchment paper that will fit a flat baking (cookie) sheet. Roll thin between two pieces of parchment paper to desired thickness.
  • Remove the top parchment paper, place the bottom parchment paper with cracker dough onto your baking pan. Score with a knife to make cracker shapes.
  • Bake for 15 - 20 minutes depending on thickness. Watch closely as they can turn very brown in a matter of minutes.
  • Break apart, cool, and enjoy!
  • Repeat, using the remaining batter to make a second batch of crackers.

    1. You score them first so they break apart easily.

  6. If you are still interested in the macronutrients (I use this recipe all the time and LOVE it). 203 kcal per 5 crackers (assumes 50 crackers as the yield). Protein: 7g (15%); Fat: 17 g (74%); Carbs: 6 g (11%). With 3.3 g fiber. These are great for ketogenic or keto-adapted eating styles as well.
