Pine Nut + Basil Quinoa Crackers -- made in a food processor, perfectly crispy and packed with healthy ingredients!

Toasted Pine Nut + Basil Quinoa Crackers

One of my favorite things about these crackers is how easy they are to make. I used to have this misconception that homemade crackers were difficult, but after realizing you can whip up a batch like this in your food processor, I'm totally hooked.

  • Preheat the oven to 400ºF. Adding quinoa flour, brown rice flour, psyllium, garlic, salt, pepper, pine nuts, basil, hummus and oil to a food processor. Pulse until evenly distributed.
  • Add the water, starting with 1/4 cup and adding 1 tablespoons at a time after, and pulse until a dough comes together into a ball, about 30 seconds. Remove and form into a ball. Let rest for just a few minutes.
  • Cut the dough into four pieces. Knead one piece with your hands, place it on a piece of parchment and roll it as thin as you can. You'll probably need to sprinkle the dough with a little flour so that it doesn't stick. Repeat with the other three pieces and transfer the pieces of parchment to baking sheets.
  • Bake the crackers for 7 - 10 minutes per side, watching closely so they don't burn. Careful when you flip them over too! Turn off the oven and let them sit in the warm oven for 1 - 2 hours so they get super crispy.
  • Break them into pieces, add them to a bowl and serve them with your favorite dips/spreads.
