Okay, folks. Get ready to treat yourselves. If you’ve been missing something salty and crunchy to munch on on your gluten-free, grain-free, egg-free, dairy-free, nut-free, and/or autoimmune protocol diet, these Sweet Potato Crackers are the kitchen magic you’ve been looking for. With just a handful of ingredients and a very hands-off cooking time, making crackers has never been easier. If you can’t find store-bought sweet potato puree, you can make your own by baking 2-3 sweet potatoes, peeling them, and pureeing them in your blender. You can also substitute pumpkin puree or use any other type of winter squash (butternut, for example). Feel free to leave out the rosemary, add more salt to taste, or throw in other seasonings like garlic powder or dill for whatever kind of flavor you want your crackers to have. This is a very adaptable recipe!
Keep your household clean, too!
I may make my living as a food blogger, but my health-consciousness actually began long before I started cooking. Growing up with a sensitive nose and skin that would break out into a rash at the slightest provocation, I’ve been making my own cosmetics and cleaning products since high school. I hoped that avoiding these environmental toxins would not only improve my health, but be better for the environment and save me some money compared to buying high-end non-toxic products at a health-foods store. Whatever your reasons, making your own household products is easier than you might think. My e-book A Clean Space has all the tips, tricks, and recipes you need to get started–and it’s only $6.99!
- Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F. Combine all ingredients in a blender and process until smooth.
- Pour the puree onto a parchment-lined baking sheet and spread to about 1/8" thickness, then bake for 20 minutes.
- Remove the crackers from the oven and use a butter knife to score them into 1-2" squares depending on how large you want them. Return to the oven for 1 hour, rotating the pan once halfway through.
- If needed, return them to the oven in 15-minute intervals until the sweet potato cooks through and the crackers are crisp. Along the way, remove any crackers that do cook all the way through to avoid burning them.
