Preparation Time: 22 hours

In a bowl, combine almond pulp, coconut flour, coconut oil, salt, pepper and any desired seasonings. Stir until well combined and a ball of dough forms. If mixture is too try, add a little water, one tablespoon at a time.

Roll out dough in between two pieces of wax paper until about 1/4″ thick. Remove top layer of paper and place bottom layer and dough on a dehydrator rack. Dehydrate for about 22 hours at 125° F.

Enjoy with an assorted cheese tray.

*To get almond pulp, you can make your own almond milk. Combine about 1 cup almonds with 3 cups of water in a blender. Blend for about 3 minutes. Strain milk from almonds to drink. Reserve pulp for these crackers.
