Ingredients

For the Crackers:

  • 1 1/2 cups blanched almond flour
  • 1 tablespoon poppy seeds
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 1 large egg white, lightly beaten

For the Topping:

  • 3/4 cup low-fat cottage cheese
  • 1/4 cup honey

Directions

  1. Make the crackers: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine flour, poppy seeds, oil, salt, and egg white. Transfer mixture to a parchment-lined baking sheet. Cover with parchment; roll out dough to an 8-by-12-inch rectangle. Uncover, and cut into twelve 2-by-4-inch crackers using a paring knife. Bake until golden brown, 12 to 14 minutes. Let cool.

  2. Make the topping: Pulse cottage cheese in a food processor until smooth. Spread 1 tablespoon onto each cracker, and drizzle each with 1 teaspoon honey.

Cook's Notes

An unrimmed baking sheet makes it easier to roll the dough. Crackers can be stored at room temperature for up to one week.
