Gluten-Free Crackers

Feta Ricotta Dip

**
Gluten-Free Amaranth Crackers

Have you heard of amaranth flour before? I am only discovering it now and am very impressed with this under-rated gluten-free flour. After testing it in several recipes, including these crackers,  I would only use it in savoury bakes and dishes, due to its nuttiness and earthiness. It is not suitable in sweet baking recipes.

Health Benefits of Amaranth Flour

Not only are these amaranth crackers extremely healthy and gluten-free, but they are also lactose-free and vegan. They are easy to make and produce a tin full in no time.

Amaranth flour has the highest protein compared to any other gluten-free grain. Used widely by Aztec and Inca civilisations, it is produced by grinding seeds from the amaranth plant into a fine powder. Even though it is not a grain, it copies the same attributes to a gluten-grain in taste and texture.

How to serve these crackers

These crackers go well with any dip, soups or with a cheeseboard. Try the uncomplicated feta ricotta dip (not vegan, but vegetarian) to go with these crackers. The recipe is included in the recipe card.
