These healthy crackers are my go-to recipe for long journeys, tiffins and snack time. I love them, my kids love them and so do all our friends. They are filled with goodness AND taste and can be eaten alone, with cheese, hummus or whatever you fancy.

The quality of the seeds is the key to these tasty crackers. I often find it difficult to get the seeds here in Goa -you never know how old they are unfortunately- and adding rancid sunflower seeds to any recipe is a definite no no. After too many attempts to buy locally, I have now given up and buy them on www.amazon.in instead. I use the brand True Elements. They are consistently good and the price isn’t bad either.

I also buy the extra virgin olive oil online because it is cheapest and I can find my favourite brands readily available. This is a Goa thing, I think. Not all supermarkets stock good extra virgin olive oil and if they do, they may not have the brands that you like. Normal sunflower oil or olive oil will also work if you do not have extra virgin olive oil at home.

Gluten Free Vegan crackers. Easy Recipe.

To make these crackers you will need the following equipment:

  • Bowl + spoon (yes, it’s really that simple!)
  • 100ml measuring cup
  • Oven + oven tray
  • 3-4 sheets of baking paper. I prefer to use the Oddy brand. It’s thick and it doesn’t absorb any of the moisture from the dough so it can be reused 4-5 times.

Please note: Depending on the size of your oven, divide the dough into 2, 3 or 4 portions. I have a 60 liter oven and I divide it into 2 portions. If you have a smaller oven, I recommend dividing the dough into 3 or even 4 portions so you can roll/press it fully flat. If the dough is too thick, the crackers tend to become doughy and soft.

Step 3

Divide the “dough” onto baking paper. I have a 60 liter oven so I usually divide it into two portions. If you have a 29 liter oven I recommend dividing into 3 or more so you can roll them as thin as possible.

Step 4

Cover with another piece of baking paper. I use a rolling pin to press it down rather than rolling it to get it as thin as possible.

Step 5

Cut into small squares with a sharp knife or pizza cutter. This is where the crackers will break afterwards so it’s now you decide the size.

Step 6

Bake for 15-20min until golden brown and a bit darker around the edges. I bake mine for 17min but it all depends on the thickness and your oven so keep an eye on them the first time. Better to keep them a minute too long than a minute too little. They can become quite gooey if they are underbaked. When they look like this it is time to take them out. Let them cool before you break them. Store in an airtight container and they will remain good for weeks. Happy baking!
