COOK TIME

30 min

Ingredients

1⁄2 c. almond meal or almond flour

1⁄2 c. organic amaranth flour, plus more as needed (see instructions)

1⁄2 c. arrowroot powder

1 Tbsp. aluminum-free baking powder

1⁄2 tsp. fine sea salt

1 1⁄2 tsp. black sesame seeds, divided

1 1⁄2 tsp. white sesame seeds, divided

1 1⁄2 tsp. white sesame seeds, divided

1⁄2 tsp. coarse sea salt

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350°.

In a large bowl, combine almond meal, amaranth flour, arrowroot, baking powder, fine sea salt, 1 tsp. of the black sesame seeds, and 1 tsp. of the white sesame seeds. Add 1⁄4 c. of the oil and 1⁄4 c. water and stir until a shaggy dough forms. Transfer the dough to a work surface lightly dusted with amaranth flour and knead a few times, until the mixture comes together.

Pat the dough into a rectangle, then roll it out to about 12" long and 8" wide, sprinkling a little amaranth flour under the dough as needed and pressing together any tears or cracks. Brush the dough with the remaining 11⁄2 tsp. of oil and sprinkle with the coarse salt, the remaining 1⁄2 tsp. black sesame seeds, and remaining 1⁄2 tsp. of white sesame seeds. Cut the dough into twenty-four 2" squares, then use a spatula to carefully transfer the crackers to a large, rimmed baking sheet. Bake until lightly browned at the edges, 25 to 30 minutes.

Transfer the baking sheet to a wire rack and let crackers cool completely.
