These grain-free crackers are easy to make and perfect for dipping in hummus, guacamole, or any other dip you like. These would be a tasty addition to a cheese board, or just enjoy them on their own when you’re craving something crunchy. In addition to being grain-free, these crackers are also gluten-free, vegan, nut-free, and refined sugar-free.
This recipe calls for two slightly unusual ingredients: chickpea flour and tapioca flour (aka tapioca starch). Whether you follow a strict grain-free diet or simply want to incorporate more grain-free meals and snacks into your diet, those are two handy ingredients to keep stocked in your pantry. If you have trouble finding them at your local grocery store then you can purchase them online.
I used extra virgin olive oil in these crackers but you can substitute another oil if you prefer. Avocado oil is a good alternative.
I like to sprinkle some poppy seeds and sesame seeds on top of the raw cracker batter before baking. You could also add some granulated onion and/or garlic for an extra savoury flavour boost if you want.
How to make these
These crackers are so easy to prepare. Start by preheating the oven, then mix together the dry ingredients. Add the cold water and extra virgin olive oil, then use a whisk to mix everything together until the batter looks smooth.
Next you’ll line a large baking sheet with parchment paper, then pour the cracker batter overtop. Use a spatula or the back of a spoon to spread the batter into as thin a layer as possible.
Sprinkle on any optional toppings, then bake until golden brown and crispy (this should take about 30 minutes). Once it’s completely cooled, break into shards. These crackers don’t need to be uniform shapes – just break them into roughly similar sizes.
What to serve them with
Store any leftovers in an airtight container for up to three days. Because these grain-free crackers don’t contain any artificial preservatives they do lose some of their crispness after a few days.
