Home-made Crackers

Fed up with spending a fortune on over-priced, unexciting and sometimes downright tasteless crackers?!  Try making your own!!  It's actually quite simple.  And these should be much lower GI than shop bought crackers too *yay*

1 cup brown rice flour
1 cup chickpea Flour (gram flour)
1/2 cup ground almonds
1 tbsp corn starch (or tapioca starch)
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 tsp garlic powder (morrisons sell this)
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp herbs
1/2 tsp xanthum
2-3 tbsp seeds (poppy, crushed pumpkin)

1/4 cup olive oil
1 egg, whisked with 1/3 cup warm water
1 tbsp honey

Mix all the dry ingredients and then add in the wet ones.  It will make a firm, slightly crumbly dough.  If it falls apart add a little more water but not so much it gets sticky.  Now roll out as thin as you can onto a lined baking sheet (use a silicone rolling pin or coat a spatula with some oil.  Bake for 20-30 mins until crisp.  Cut into squares and serve with humous, baba ganoush or other similar dip.
