FRESH and delicious Savory Italian Tigernut Flour Crackers are about to be your new favorite crunchy addiction!
Since Tigernut flour has that slightly sweet taste to it, I thought it would be a perfect base for some grain-free crackers. I didn’t want a totally sweet crackers (that would be too cookie like), so with some savory Italian herbs and olive oil…we’d be in business! You can also dictate how crunchy the crackers get by the thinness which you role the cracker dough out. I made mine about 1/8th an inch thick so they were a tad soft, but still crunchy. It was everything I’ve ever wanted in a cracker! I controlled my snacking destiny!
Personally, I’m NOT a snacker in the slightest. My mom, she is the ultimate snacker. I’m good and satisfied with big rounded meals, but hey, when there are fresh baked homemade tigernut flour crackers around, who could resist? It becomes a cracker obligation to enjoy a few if you ask me! Not only would they make a great addition to lunch, a before-bed snack, or midday pick-me-up, but also a fantastic and crowd-WOWing addition to an appetizer platter at any party or gathering!
