  1. In a food processor, mix the flour, arrowroot powder, salt,  saffron and baking soda.

  4. Form dough into 2 logs on a parchment paper lined baking sheet, gently pat down and shape the logs.
  5. Bake at 175ºC / 325°F for 15 minutes in the bottom of the oven, then remove from oven and cool for around 15 minute.
  6. Cut the logs into 2 cm / 3/4 inch slices on the diagonal with a very sharp knife
  7. Spread slices out on a baking sheet and bake at 150C / 300°F for 12-15 minutes
  8. Remove from oven and allow to cool, set, and become crispy



*I used 4 dl almond flour and 2 dl whole grain spelt flour, but other flours work too, if you use a flour containing gluten than you can skip the arrowroot! Remember to use a flour that suites flavour wise and this purpose.
