Courgette (Zucchini) Crackers

These are a delightful grain free cracker made with courgette (zucchini), almond flour and coconut flour.

 Lots of fibre and very filling!   I did not bake them to an absolute crisp which gave the cracker a slight soft texture which I preferred.  You could cook them a little bit longer if you wanted them very crunchy.

Below is the basic recipe and I played around with it making versions with Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, cayenne pepper which were all yummy.  The favourite so far were the Parmesan and garlic powder flavourings.   These went well with the Red Pepper dip.  Then again, I could slather the red pepper dip over cardboard and still munch it…

    ooh – please do! It is just crazy that a country which has a very high rate of diabetes does not stock coconut flour…it is such a healthier alternative! It may seem expensive but you only need to use a small amount of it…so it does not work out too bad on the purse really..

      Thanks Heather! I make by own almond flour simply by grinding almonds. The coconut flour is via Amazon….BUT the Dubai Organics Store inform me that they will soon be stocking coconut flour. I will be setting off fireworks when it is finally here!

        Thanks Angie! Will definitely be keeping an eye out for the coconut flour. Maybe if I stop in and start asking, they’ll realize it’s an important item to stock!
