No-Roll Flaky Vegetable Crackers (gluten free, keto, low carb, dairy free)
It was late last night and although I had planned on baking some bread and crackers earlier in the day it just didn't happen.
I swear the days are getting much shorter. It seams like I go to bed and the next day a whole month has passed. Know what I mean?
I had the option of going to bed then or baking both. Crazy as it seems, I chose to stay up (past midnight) and made a blender bread recipe. Since I had the blender dirty I wondered if I could find a blender cracker recipe.
With the help of Google I found Angela's recipe but I didn't have any zucchini so I substituted cucumber and with it being as late as it was, didn't want to shred/grate it so I cut it into chunks and added it to the blender with the other ingredients. I really love pieces of nuts and seeds in crackers like my Nutty Crunchy Cheese Crackers, so I stirred in some sesame seeds and pumpkin seeds; crossed my fingers and baked them. With the clock ticking and midnight rapidly approaching, I decided to turn off the oven when they were done and go to bed, leaving them in the oven to cool and continue to crisp up overnight.
I was thrilled with the result when I tasted them this morning. Crunchy but surprisingly flaky, super easy to make (since you don't have to roll them out) and 5 crackers only have 2.21 net carbs!!
