2½ cups blanched almond flour
¼ cup pine nuts, chopped
½ cup pumpkin seeds, chopped
¼ cup sesame seeds
1 tablespoon multi-seasoning blend of your choice
1 teaspoon dried minced onion
½ teaspoons sea salt
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 large eggs
Preheat oven to 350 F. In a dry skillet, lightly toast the seeds. In a large bowl, combine almond flour, seeds, seasoning blend, minced onion and salt. In a small bowl, whisk together olive oil and egg until well blended.
Stir wet ingredients into almond flour mixture until thoroughly combined. Use your hands to knead the dough into a ball.
Place the dough ball between two large sheets of parchment paper and roll out to 1/16 inch thickness.
Remove top piece of parchment paper. Using a pizza cutter or sharp knife, trim the dough to form an even rectangle shape. Set aside scraps.
Then, cut dough into 2-by-2-inch squares. Do not remove cut dough squares. Instead, transfer the entire sheet of parchment with dough onto baking sheet.
Make a small dough ball out of the scraps and re-roll and cut. Place on second baking sheet.
Lightly sprinkle crackers with sea salt before placing into the oven, if desired.
Bake for approximately 12-15 minutes, until crackers along the outer edge of the baking sheet are lightly golden. (Watch closely – they can burn easily.)
Turn off oven and open oven door for just a minute to allow majority of heat to escape. Close oven door and allow crackers to sit in hot oven another 5 minutes to finish crisping-up.
Remove crackers from oven and allow them to cool completely on baking sheet for about 30 minutes.
