GF crackers [Mar. 11th, 2013|07:34 pm]
Against the grain


My daughter's just been diagnosed with gluten intolerance and I'm looking for a crackers (savoury biscuits to be eateen with cheese) recipe. She doesn't like any of the store-bought varieties.

Also, has anybody ever made their own GF sourdough bread? I can't have active yeast and if we could all eat the same things it'd be brilliant...

Thanks in advance!

If you/she are okay with almond flour, there might be recipes on Elana's Pantry and there are definitely recipes in the book by the same author, The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook. Lots of other recipes both on the site and in the book, for breads, cookies, cakes, etc.

Yes, Elana's almond crackers are very good!

If she likes very hearty tasting crackers, like rye, she might like flax. I am munching on homemade flax crackers right now. I made mine in the dehydrator but you can probably make them in the oven as well (there are tutorials on YouTube).

I have made gf crackers, but I didn't have an exact recipe, I was just kind of working by eye. I used a combination of mochiko (sweet rice flour) and instant mashed potato flakes, with eggs, sugar, and salt. I used some italian seasoning in one batch as well. I just mixed them in proportions that "felt" and looked right, and put them in the oven at 450 until they were, well, cracker-y. If you're willing to wing it without exact measurements, give it a shot because I really loved how they came out!

Thanks a lot everyone. It's a real learning curve. We've been dairy free for years but that was easy in comparison.
