We have been trying to reduce the amount of grain that we eat, but it's hard on my kids. They like to munch on crackers and the gluten free options tend to be a bit pricey. I like to make my own food wherever possible, so this seemed like a good opportunity to do that.
These black bean crackers use black bean flour, which I made by tossing some dried black beans into my grain mill. The flour came out wonderfully soft and worked very well in a number of products, including these crackers!
1/2 c. black bean flour
1 Tblsp. oil
1/2-2/3 c. water
salt to taste
Preheat the oven to 375°.
Mix the salt and bean flour together, then slowly mix in the oil. The result will be a sandy mixture.
Add half the water and mix well. Slowly mix in more water until the batter spreads easily when dropped onto the greased cookie sheet.
Drop half a spoonful of batter onto the greased cookie sheet for each cracker. There should be enough to make roughly four dozen crackers.
Bake for 5 minutes or until firm to the touch. Flip and bake another 3-4 minutes, watching that the edges don't burn.
Cool the crackers and serve as is or with dip.
