Split Pea Crackers Recipe: Healthy And Allergy Friendly

These split pea crackers are a nice snack for those that have food sensitivities and allergies.

Most of people don’t understand that the gluten-free snack aisle contains some of the most heavily processed food items in the grocery store. They are usually filled additives, added sugar, nutrient-empty filling ingredients, cheap inflammatory oil and starchy substitute flours like tapioca starch, potato, corn that are most probably GMO.

How To Make Split Pea Crackers

Why green split peas? these are full of starch when cooked and will serve as a good base binding everything together.

1. To make these pea chips, first you will need to soak the split peas overnight.

This not only will improve their nutritional value but also will decrease phytate, protease inhibitors, lectins, tannins and calcium oxalate. These are all anti-nutrients that can damage an already affected digestive system.

2. Then in a large pot, cover the peas with 4 cups of water for each cup of peas. Bring to boil and simmer for 1 to 2 hours until fully cooked.  Puree them.

3. Then add everything you need in a food processor and mix until you get the consistency of a soft dough. Roll on a parchment paper, cut and bake!

The best part about making your own pea crackers is that you can get creative with flavors and add seeds, nuts, spices and herbs. You are in control of the outcome!

How To Enjoy These Split Pea Crackers?

You can enjoy them with guacamole, humus, or any other dip of your preference, nut, fruit or seed butters. Usually I like to spread some pumpkin seed butter or sunflower seed butter on crackers, as I have a problem with nuts.

Amazon also offers an alternative: Splitz Split Pea Crisp Snacks also made from split peas.

Notes

Tips For Making The Slip Pea Crackers / Chips

  1. I used whole flax seeds, but you will get even better results if you use ground flax seeds. When ground they make a great egg substitution.
  2. Note that these split pea crackers are easy breakable (because there is no additives and gums or store bought gluten free flour mixes). 
Store in an airtight container.

Can you use another flour? I am allergic to millet.

Yes, look for something similar in texture like buckwheat, oat or cassava flour.

Can I substitute green split peas with green lentil?

You can try, the starch in the peas seems similar to that in lentils, but I can't tell for sure if it's going to work.

i cant wait to try this! I wonder if I use my very thick split pea soup pureed and add coconut flour instead of the millet flour?

Have you tried it with coconut flour yet? If so, can you share your experience?

As I mentioned on YouTube this sounds like an interesting experiment. Now I'm curious if this will work ? The only thing that concerns me is that the texture of coconut flour is more gritty than the millet (and so the result might me), but otherwise it would be perfect for more liquid absorption!
