Almond crisps

Hi everyone, we are nearing the June school holidays! So, what have you planned for your children for this month-long holidays? For me, I intend to engage my son with more cooking/ baking activities. My son loves playing the role of “master chef” and is always finding ways to make my kitchen his playground. During our past culinary adventures, we had so much fun and happy moments.

 

Cooking/ baking with your children is not limited to bonding but it is something that you can help to make the most out of this fun activity. It gives you a good opportunity to teach them a valuable lifetime skill. At the same time, it also helps to impart healthy eating habits, stimulate your children’s creativity and introduce mathematics and science in a practical sense. After all, cooking/ baking is every bits about counting, chemistry, art and taste. It is also a great time to instill in them the virtue of patience, responsibility, ownership and confidence. At the end of the cooking/baking process, the entire family will be rewarded with the labour of love.

 

However, remember to do proper planning beforehand and assign the appropriate tasks to your child according to his/ her age and ability. Otherwise, you may end up with a messy kitchen!

 

This almond crisps recipe is very suitable to be used as a parent and child baking project at home. The steps are simple and easy-to-follow. If you read through the recipe, you will find many similarities with the sesame crisp recipe I featured earlier. Mix your ingredients with hand whisk and spatula (yes, no electrical mixer is required!), spread the batter on the baking tray (in any shapes you like) and then put the tray straight into the oven. Sounds easy peasy, right? While waiting for the end product, you and your child can do washing and cleaning up together.

 

These crisps are incredibly addictive and highly rated by those who had tried them out. This included my mother-in-law who doesn’t have a sweet tooth. I have reduced the original amount of sugar by 30g so the sweetness is just right for our taste buds. If your child is not ready or allergic to nuts, feel free to substitute almonds with pumpkin seeds. It tastes good as well.

 

The key to get a crispy crisp is to spread the batter as thin as possible and make sure there is no overlapping of seeds. It’s also crucial to keep an eye on these crisps towards the last five minutes of baking so as to avoid any incidence of over-burning. I also strongly recommend the use of quality baking paper such as GLAD BAKE for this recipe for easy removal of these crisps from the paper after baking.

To all my readers, I will be away for a short 10-day break starting this Friday. Do bear with my slow response to your comments or queries as I will have limited access to the internet during this period. I know some of you may be wondering how I can go off a week before the start of the school holidays. Well, as my son is still in preschool and there will not be many lessons left during the last week of this school term, I managed to get an “informal” approval from the class teacher to “play truant”. Hehehe! So, till then, Happy Baking and Bonding!

 

Some simple recipes that you can use for parent and child baking projects are:
- Sesame crisps
- Banana muffins
- Oatmeal banana raisin muffins
- Cheesy cookies
- Cornflake cookies
- Coconut butter cookies
- Power-packed oat bars
- Homemade snack bars (no baking required)
- Japanese egg salad sandwiches (no baking required)

  26. Sadhana says:

    First time here, love it. Great clicks and fun recipes.

  27. Ash says:

    I baked this today but the crisps sticked to the greaseproof paper :( have a hard time peeling off :( but the taste is great. :) love it and will bake again.

    • food-4tots says:

      Ash: Thanks for sharing your feedback!! Did you use GLAD greaseproof paper (as per the photo shown in the recipe)? This brand is slightly pricey but the quality is fantastic and will surely guarantee to solve your current problem. ;)

      • Ash says:

        I didn’t used the GLAD greaseproof paper. I used those from NTUC and I know where went wrong. The greaseproof paper from NTUC is greaseproof paper n not baking paper. GLAD greaseproof paper is actually baking paper… The NTUC greaseproof paper cannot go into oven (cos there’s a layer of wax) but the GLAD greaseproof paper can.

  28. Sharon says:

    can’t wait to try this! :)

  29. Yenn says:

  30. kym tan says:

    Hi, first of all thank u for uploading the recipe..
    I tried baking some today, the taste is great, not too sweet but my turn out to be very hard…
    Need ur advice…

    Many thanka in advance

  31. kym tan says:

    Hi, thank you for replying :P
    I have one but i do not know how to attach here :(
    I tried to make them thin…..

  32. Sharon says:

    They are in the oven now….. hehehehe :) Txs for this recipe! <3

  33. Sharon says:

    My son loved it!!! However, I didn’t read the instructions clearly before I attempted the receipe so I only baked one tray- using more than half a tablespoon each of batter for each crisp. When they first were taken outta the oven they were delicious. The next day they turned very chewy and not crispy even though I baked them again for 3mins. I’ll try the receipe again and this time I promise to stick to your recommendations hehehe. No short cut for baking!

  34. pauline says:

    hi
    where you buy almond flakes. can i buy from supermarket?

  35. Karen says:

    Hi, can you advise why is my crisp chewy instead of crispy? I did try to make it as thin as possible but after cooling, they became soft.
    Also, are the crisps supposed to be bit sticky after bake? Thx in advance!

    • food-4tots says:

      Karen: They are supposed to be crisp. As soon as they are cooled, you need to store them in an air-tight container. No, they are not sticky at all. Do you have any photo to show me?

  36. CCL says:

    Thank you… Thank you….
    One of my family’s favourite. It’s a great snack. The first time we made, we made 2 portions, and we plan to make another 2 cos it disappears very fast. Hahaha….
