gluten free sesame crackers

Posted in : Crackers, Gluten free baking, snack on by : apsara Tags: , , , , ,

Making gluten free crackers does not lend itself to using only whole grains, since keeping the flours together in the cracker requires starch. I have been working on getting the starch (tapioca and white rice flour) to a minimum. Almond flour adds a nutty flavor and addition of xanthan gum helps with the binding too. Here is a recipe that worked out well and tastes great too.

Preparation time: 15 minutes to mix and 12 minutes to bake. Makes 40-50 crackers.



sorghum flour- 1/2 cup

brown rice flour- 1/4 cup

almond flour- 3/4 cup

tapioca starch- 1/2 cup + 3 tbsp.

rice flour- 1/4 cup

xanthan gum- 1/2 tsp.


sugar- 2 tsp.

salt- 1 tsp.

chili powder- 1 and 1/2 tsp.

sesame seeds- 2 tbsp.


butter- 2 tbsp.

canola oil- 1/2 cup

water- 1/3 cup (approx.)


* Mix flours, spices and butter and oil together in a bowl.

* Add water slowly to form a knead-able dough.

* Roll out between two sheets of wax paper to a thickness of 1/8 inch or thinner.

* Cut out squares with a pizza knife, poke holes. Carefully remove the squares and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.


* Bake in an oven pre-heated to 350 F,  for 12 minutes.


The crackers have a nice crumbly taste and just melt in your mouth. A great snack for hungry kids and others too!
