I have been trying to re-create this carrot cracker recipe that I had a while back and I finally did it. Those crackers are really tasty.
3 clove garlic
2 tablespoon ground flax seed meal
½ cup almonds
salt and pepper
5 small organic carrots
ground almonds to make flower. put in food processor with carrots, garlic, flax seeds meal and salt and pepper to taste. process to mix.
make flat crackers and place on dehydrator sheets. dehydrate at 105 F for 10-12 hr. flip the crackers after 6 hr and continue dehydrating.
Can someone point me at the almond cheese recipe mpop mentions? I can't figure out how to get to the recipes mpop has submitted and when I search for almond cheese a gazillion things come up. Thanks!
I don't know what I did wrong but I had little success with this recipe. I had to add oil, otherwise the mix was impossible to spread. The recipe says it makes 5 big crackers - I barely got one dehydrator sheet covered. I made them too thin, so now I have a tasty carrot crumble to throw over a salad, I guess!
Tell, me.....if I want to use carrot pulp instead of carrots in this recipe, how much would I use...such as 1 cup, 2 cups? or what would you recommend?
This was the first cracker I have ever made (and the first food to go into my new Excalibur) and I LOVE them. I don't think they will last the rest of today. Thank you!
Oh my god - these crackers are possibly the nicest things to have come out of my dehydrator! They are amazing!
They remind me of eating carrots dipped in hummus, which I love. Thanks!
these crackers are awesome!!! i doubled the batch and i'm officially addicted. it's the first raw cracker i've tried, and i've been eating it with sun-dried tomatoes and hummus (i'm not 100% raw).
I will for sure make those crackers, but will also add some oil to it as to all recipes with carrots. Carrots contain Vitamin A and E, those belong to the Vitamin group A,D,E,K which are only soluble in fat, except of the other ones that are soluble in water. So its always better to add some oil.
flax seeds ground up into powder. I am making this right now!
what is flax seed meal?
I am not a huge fan of the strong flavour of carrots, but the garlic in this recipe softens the strong carrot-y taste, and makes these crackers oh so delicous! Yum, I'm eating them right now with the Tommie's Cashew Cheese recipe from this website. I just added a little bit more water to the cheese to make a very sweet dip, which goes very nicely with the crackers. Ooh yes, love the garlicy taste! If you love garlic, add 3 BIG cloves, if you don't like it so much, add 3 small, that's my advice.
as a pate...delish! I am making mine right now in the dehydrator. I hope they turn out. Unfortunately, I didn't have any flax, so I substituted sesame seeds and added a little flax oil. I also substitued cashews for the almonds....I hope it works!!! :-D
banaman231, many people just use their oven on the lowest setting with the door slightly ajar.
These are in my dehydrator right now and the smell is divine. I added a little shredded red bell pepper and sunflower flour to mine as well as some dehydrated onion and red pepper flakes. I can't wait to try these!
Is there any way to make this without a dehydrator? Thanks!
Linda, you're welcome. I am so happy you enjoyed the recipe. Yes, they are delicous and I love them too.
I made these crackers yesterday and they came out awesome! These have to be the best tasting crackers I have ever made. I think I spread them too thin on the dehydrator trays because they cracked around the edges, so they didn't come out beautiful like the picture. Thanks for posting this recipe, mpop.
MicheleSS you can put 1 cup almond flower. I do not like flax seeds much in these crackers so I do not put a lot, if you want you cab put more. these crackers are so good with the almond cheese I made and put the recipe on this site. I am making another batch of these crackers today after work. they are delicious.
jvetter I do not like zucchini crackers much, I made them a few times and I don't really car emuch for zucchini crackers. I find they don't have much taste.
rawmama, I guess you can try the crackers with the left over carrot pulp, however I am not sure if they will still have flavour, but you can always try. let us know if it comes out good with the carrot pulp.
I wonder if this would be good with just left over carrot pulp from when I did some juicing?
I did this with zucchini also. You just have to salt the shredded zucchini and let it drain for a while because it will be too watery if you don't. But it was delicious also! Same recipe, just substitute zucchini for carrots.
Thank you for posting this recipe - I've been looking for cracker recipes that contain lots of veggies, and I love carrots. Can you please tell me how much almond flour to use? My local asian market sells raw almond flour, which means I won't have to grind it myself. I'm not sure how much flour 1/2 cup of almonds would actually make.
I did not add oil, you can try it out and let us know if it comes out better with oil. It tastes ok as a pate, but let me tell you that as crackers they are delicious. I just had two of them with the almond cheese recipe I submitted on this site. I only have 3 left now and I 'll keep them for tomorrow, but I can't stop eating those crackers with the almond cheese I made. absolutely delicious!
~thank you sounds nice and very simple. I might make it as a pâté; since i don’t have a dehydrator... i bet it would be good as well. what about oil?
