Crispy, crunchy crackers are so easy to make, and require just a few basic ingredients! This easy gluten free cracker recipe is one you’ll make again and again.
Yesterday I shared my recipe for easy and creamy tomato carrot soup. Today, I want to share a super easy gluten free cracker recipe. I posted two gluten free cracker recipes previously, and this one is similar, but has more of a salty, buttered flavor…kind of saltine-like, which is just perfect for serving with soup.
It’s quite easy to make your own gluten free crackers, and it’s much less expensive than buying a box of gluten free crackers from the store. There are a few tricks to getting these crackers to turn out well, but once you’ve mastered the basics, you’ll be surprised at how quickly you can whip up a batch of these gluten free crackers.
Tips to make this gluten free cracker recipe a success:
- You may need to adjust the amount of liquid depending on the brand of flour that you use. The dough should not be crumbly – if it is, add a bit more water.
- Rolling out gluten free dough can be tricky – make sure you use two pieces of parchment paper.
- Keep an eye on these as they bake – if the edges are thinner than the middle, they may get done first. You can remove the edges once they are done, just be careful and quick.

Easy Gluten Free Cracker Recipe
These homemade gluten free crackers are super easy to make and much cheaper than store bought varieties.
- 1 cup gluten free flour blend
- ½ teaspoon sea salt
- 1 Tablespoon melted vegan buttery spread like Earth Balance
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
- ½ teaspoon honey or agave nectar if you are vegan!
- ¼ - ½ cup water*
- Sea salt or seasoned salt for the top
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a medium bowl, mix together the olive oil, melted buttery spread, and honey (or agave nectar). Add the gluten free flour blend and sea salt , and ¼ cup of water.
Stir until the dough is thick and comes together into a ball.
If the dough is dry and crumbly, you will need to add more water, but just add a little bit at a time, don’t overdo it. *(Some gluten free flour blends will require more water to form a dough).
Place the ball of dough between two pieces of parchment and using a rolling pin, roll until very thin, about ⅛ inch thick. Try to keep the dough the same thickness, even at the edges, to avoid burning.
Remove the top piece of parchment paper from the dough. Keep the dough on the bottom piece of parchment paper and move onto a cookie sheet. Using a very sharp knife, cut the dough into 1.5 inch squares, but do not separate.
Sprinkle a little water on the dough, and smooth over the squares with your fingers. Sprinkle sea salt or seasoned salt on top of the squares.
Bake at 400 degrees until crisp, about 15-20 minutes. Rotate the cookie sheet after about ten minutes. Keep your eye on the crackers - it could take a little more or less time, it really depends on the gluten free flour blend that you use and how thin you roll the dough.
Let crackers the cool fully on the cookie sheet, then break apart. If you have any left over, store in an airtight container. We hardly ever have any left though, they are so tasty!
I have successfully made these homemade gluten free crackers using the following flour blends: Trader Joe’s Gluten Free Flour Blend, Pamela’s Products Gluten Free Artisan Flour Blend, Mrs. Glee’s Gluten Free Performance Blend, Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free 1-to-1 Baking Flour, and my own gluten free flour mix.
You should just plan to make a couple batches of these…they go sooooo quickly!
Thanks for recipe…Wondering why mine are oily and hard? Too crunchy!
Have not tried the recipe yet but thought I’d contact you with a request. I bake quite a bit and weigh all my ingredients, would you please add the weight in grams in your recipes because there is a difference and it would be very helpful to have that info. Thanks
Looks good but we don’t have measuring cups in UK :(
I make these often. Quick and easy. This batch today is with dill and marjoram. Makes a tasty cracker.
So grateful not having to spend those dollars for a small box ofvcrackers.
Thanks so much!
So yummy and so easy. I used this flour: https://www.vitacost.com/king-arthur-flour-all-purpose-flour-gluten-free which is just rice, tapioca, and potato. And I used ghee instead of butter replacement. I topped with a sprinkle of salt and dried thyme. They are addictive.
Made these for my gluten free dairy free husband. Tested a corner piece at the rotation step. It tasted just like a saltine cracker. I was very impressed.
I made these today. You were right I should have made a double batch cause I ate most of them by myself.
Thank you for a great recipe.
Will make over and over again
I’m going to try these for over Christmas as my daughter is celiac. Not sure (in the UK) what buttery spread is? I’m going to try it with 2 spoons of olive oil as I do making non gluten free crackers. And add fresh Rosemary as normal. But I do use other herbs too. And add cayenne pepper, turmeric etc. But, I should’ve said thank first for sharing. X
