    You are welcome, @Tully Mars. Make a bunch..they disappear like those wafers..

    You are welcome, @Ganado!! I have a lot of hard tack in stores.

    You are welcome, @techsar!! I guess wafers are the favorite for most people....they disappear.

    I love crackers, But I don't love wheat flour so I make these
    Garlic Rosemary Crackers
    • 1 cup raw almonds
    • 1/4 cup raw sunflower seeds
    • 2 Tbsp flax seeds (I used flax seed meal)
    • 1-2 Tbsp fresh rosemary
    • 2 cloves garlic
    • 1 tsp sea salt (or more to taste)
    • 2 Tbsp olive oil
    • 1 egg, beaten

    • Combine all ingredients except the oil and egg into your food processor and blend until it becomes a fine texture.
    • Mix the oil and egg in a separate bowl, then add to food processor and mix together (my food processor has a "Dough" button that I used, but if it becomes to thick, you can remove it and mix it with a spoon).
    • Next, roll the dough our between two pieces of parchment paper until it's about 1/8 of an inch thick.
    • Lightly coat a pan with oil and bake at 300F for 35-40 minutes or until edges brown and center is crispy.
    • Break into cracker-sized pieces.
    I was trying to figure out ifI could modify thehard tack recipe but the seed and nut flours may have too much oil in them for long term storage
