Make-Ahead Instructions:

To Make-Ahead: It’s best to make the avocado egg salad fresh, but the flaxseed crackers can be made ahead of time. Simply bake the crackers and store the crackers in an air-tight container to keep them fresh until ready to use. They should last about a week before going stale.

Notes

How to Test Avocados for Ripeness: Gently remove the stem at the top of the avocado. If the area underneath is green, your avocado is ready to be eaten. If it’s difficult to remove, the avocado is still unripe. Leave it a bit longer. If the area is brown, use the avocado immediately (if possible) since it’s already overripe.

Egg Boiling Tip: Ensure eggs are hard-boiled to perfection for the salad. To achieve this, first, bring water to a boil in a pot. Prevent egg cracking by using room-temperature eggs and a spoon to gently lower them into the water to prevent cracking. Boil for 9-12 minutes, followed by an immediate plunge into an ice bath for easy peeling and a consistent, tender yolk texture.

For Easy Egg Peeling: Once your eggs are cooked, crack them all over and place them in some cold water for a few seconds. The water will cool the egg and also soften and loosen the membrane on the inside, making it super easy to peel away the shell.
For Variety: Add half a teaspoon of vinegar and some hot sauce to taste to amp up the tanginess and add a little burn.

More Good Cracker Recipes for Avocado Egg Salad

Tahini Crackers

These savory tahini crackers are gluten-free, nut-free and the perfect thing to dip into your avocado egg salad. The recipe relies on coconut flour instead of almond flour to make up the base of the cracker. Cutting the dough into squares before the crackers are baked makes it easy to break into pieces later on. The outside edges of the dough usually cook faster, so keep a close eye on the crackers as they bake and remove from the oven once crispy.

Avocado Egg Salad Crackers Recipe

Ingredients

1/4 cup tahini
2 tbsp ghee, melted
2 eggs
1 tbsp wholegrain mustard
3 tbsp sesame seeds
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup coconut flour

Instructions

1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. In a medium bowl, stir together the tahini, ghee, eggs, mustard, sesame seeds, and salt. Add the coconut flour and stir to combine.

2. Transfer the dough to a sheet of parchment paper. Cover with a second sheet of paper and roll out the dough to 1/8-inch thick. Peel back the top layer of paper and cut the dough into squares.

3. Place the parchment paper with the squares onto a baking sheet. Bake for 12-15 minutes until lightly browned. Let cool for 15 minutes before serving.

Ask a Question 

  1. Hi Jess! Thanks so much for sharing this recipe. I made the crackers as instructed, but I had to leave them in the oven a bit longer to get that crispy texture. The issue I have is that they tasted burnt even though they weren’t. It’s my first time baking with flaxseed, so maybe it’s the flavor that I’m not used to? Or I should’ve removed them when they time was up and they were still soft? I used a recently purchased Bob’s Red Mill ground flaxseed, which I believe to be a very good brand. Any tips would be appreciated! Thanks 🙂
