Wholesome Seed Crackers

I’ve have a really hard time finding crackers that I can get excited about.  You know, gluten-free, low sodium, without a bunch of crazy additives or ingredients.  I’ve made crackers at home before – even trying my hand out with a gluten-free flour – but those honestly took a lot of time and effort. 

I’m all about simple.  Simple ingredients, simple cooking process, simply delicious.  These crackers are all of the above.  With just a handful of ingredients you’ll be able to make these incredibly nutritious and delicious crackers. 

They’re so simple to make that I’ve made at least five batches – seriously – in the past month or so.  Ben and I keep them in ziplock bags and go through about a batch a week.  I made them for a potluck one night and my even my gluten-eating friends have been asking for the recipe! 

My recipe is slightly adapted from Angela’s endurance crackers.  I found the flavor of dried herbs + spices to be better than fresh, and I’ve also found that sundried tomatoes are a nice addition to the mix.  Feel free to experiment!  Things I’m looking forward to trying: parmesan, nutritional yeast, chives, barbecue, liquid smoke…


Wholesome Seed Crackers

[vegan, gluten + grain-free]

  • 1/2 c chia seeds
  • 1/2 c sesame seeds
  • 1/2 c sunflower seeds
  • 1/2 c pepitas/pumpkin seeds
  • 1 c water
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • Add ins [optional]: sundried tomatoes, herbs/spices, etc. 


Preheat oven to 325 and line two baking sheets with parchment paper [if you like thick crackers, you can use just one sheet, but I like mine a bit thinner.]

Mix all the ingredients – except water – together in a large bowl. 

Add the water to the mix and stir until everything combines and becomes thick. 

Spread the mixture onto the baking sheet[s].  I like to spread mine as thin as they’ll go without holes, which winds up being about 1 and a half baking sheets.  Holes in the mixture can be patched up easily. 

Bake for 30 minutes, then remove from the oven and cut desired-sized crackers.


Flip the crackers and bake for another 30 minutes, or until the bottoms are lightly browned. 

Cool completely.

Enjoy!  Be sure your crackers are completely cooled before storing in a container or ziplock or they’ll get soggy.
