Learning to bake by ratios (weight) instead of cups, etc., means that you can make your recipes any size you want, simply by changing the ratio. You can make a cupcake for one, or multiply it for a whole crowd. Also, if you don't have a specific type of flour, you can substitute it by weight for another flour (the results may slightly differ). It makes me learn to be creative in the kitchen....I love it! :) But don't worry, I've also put in my rough estimate of what the measurements would be using cups, etc., for those of you without a scale.
Zippy Garlic Crackers
When rolling out the dough, roll to the specified thickness...on one batch, I rolled it super thin, and they would not hold up to any kind of dipping (which, as we all know, is very important for crackers!). Try these with my Hot Artichoke Spinach dip or Mango Salsa :)
140 g. (1 1/4 c.) almond flour
28 g. (1/4 c.) shelled sunflower seeds (if unsalted, add 1/2 t. salt)
10 g. (1 T. + 1 t.) ground flax seed
1/2 t. garlic powder
1/2 t. crushed red pepper
60g. (1/4 c.) water
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Pulse all ingredients, except water, in the food processor, until crumbly.
Cover dough with another piece of parchment paper (or you can use wax paper), and roll out to 1/4" thickness. Score into cracker squares using a sharp knife. Sprinkle crackers lightly with salt.
Makes about 2 dozen crackers.
