Grain-free Hazelnut-Cilantro Crackers Recipe

Per Ricki at, these work equally well for appetizers or as a snack on their own.  You can use any herb you like if you’re not a fan of cilantro.


3/4 cup (115 g) hazelnuts (filberts)

1/4 cup (30 g) finely ground flax seeds

2 cloves garlic, roughly chopped

1/4 cup (40 g) whole bean or chickpea flour

1/4 tsp (1 ml) fine sea salt

1/4 tsp (1 ml) baking soda

1/2-2/3 cup (120-160 ml) fresh cilantro, parsley or basil leaves, or a combination

2 Tbsp (30 ml) organic coconut oil, melted, or extra virgin olive oil

3 Tbsp (45 ml) water


Preheat oven to 375F (190C).  Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper (this recipe requires the parchment; greasing won’t do).  Lightly flour the parchment with more bean flour. 

In the bowl of a food processor, process the nuts and flax seeds to a fine meal; it should have the appearance of coarse cornmeal, with no visible pieces of nuts.  Add the flour, salt and soda and process again until mixture is combined.

Add the cilantro, oil, and water to the processor and blend until the cilantro is well chopped and the mixture comes together in a moist dough. 

Place the dough directly on the parchment, and roll it out to a rectangle about 7 x 10 inches (17.5 x 25 cm) big .  You can make it smaller or slightly larger, depending on how thick you want your crackers.  (I rolled mine out to a thickness of about 1/8″ or 2 mm).

Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes.  Remove from the oven and cut the large rectangle into smaller crackers (I cut about 25 crackers).  Turn each cracker over by hand (be careful–these are hot!).  Return the crackers to the oven and bake another 10-15 minutes, until they are golden brown throughout.  Cool completely before storing in an airtight container.  Makes about 25 crackers.  These will keep, covered at room temperature, for up to a week.
