Rosemary & black pepper crackers

Suitable from 10 months

Rosemary & black pepper crackers
These crackers are great as a convenient, nutritious snack, either at home or on the go. They are grain-free, gluten-free and high in (nut) protein. They are baked, which some would say is not optimal for health, but they are still far better for you than any commercial cracker out there.

These crackers are made with almond flour – almond is a tree nut which can cause allergic reactions. In order to prevent allergies, recommendations used to be to wait with introducing nuts until one year of age. More recent studies show that this not the case. If you suspect a nut allergy or if you have nut allergies in your family, ask your doctor!

Recipe tips
These crackers really do taste even better – to the adult palate at least – with a pinch of added salt. If you are making them for adults only, add 1/4 tsp of salt to the dry ingredients. If you are making them for children over the age of 1 then it is still ok to add a little salt if you wish to (use a bit less than for adults), as long as the daily recommended amount of 2 g per child is not exceeded, or not too often! Children under the age of one year should never be given salt. Our children love the salt-free version!

We like these crackers topped with a little butter, a very thin slice of cheese and half a sweet cherry tomato. You can also serve them topped with tahini, dip them in hummous or tzatziki or spread our nut butter on top.
