Make Your Own Crackers

Looking for a great new cracker recipe to try? We came up with this one over the holidays because I hadn’t found a good gluten-free cracker that I liked yet and I was desperate for some crackers and cheese ball! Even if you don’t need to eat gluten-free, you can use all brown rice flour instead and these should still turn out, a great way to get some extra whole grains in your diet!

–I love this Easy Cheddar Cheeseball Recipe for a snack!

 

How to Make Crackers

Brown Rice Cracker Recipe

What you need:

  • 1 cup All Purpose Gluten Free Flour  (Or just Brown Rice Flour)
  • 1 Tablespoon butter
  • 1 teaspoon oil (I used olive oil)
  • pinch of brown sugar or raw sugar
  • water
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • butter and salt for brush on tops of crackers

How to make your own crackers:

  • In a mixing bowl, mix together the flour, melted butter, oil, sugar, and salt. I use a fork to get the wet ingredients incorporated.
  • Start adding in water slowly, you will need around 1/3 cup of water total. Keep adding water and mixing the ingredients with your hands until it forms a nice dough. Don’t add too much water or you will have a soggy mess.
  • Once you’ve form a dough, place it on a greased baking sheet (I used a non-greased stoneware pan), and roll out.
  • Roll with a rolling pin until very thin, at least 1/8 inch or thinner, without tearing it.
  • Using a pizza cutter, score the crackers.
  • With a pastry brush, brush more melted butter over the tops of the crackers and sprinkle with salt.
  • Bake at 400 degrees for about 15 minutes or until crackers are crispy and slightly brown, let them cool before serving.

  1. For added flavor and crunch you can add soy/tamari/Bragg’s liquid aminos to the water and then sprinkle the tops of the crackers with sesame and flax seeds. Thank you for a great base recipe for crackers.

  2. Those look really good! Crackers are something we miss having around, so I try new recipes fairly frequently. Yours looks so simple, I can’t wait to try them!

  3. Thanks so much!!!! I just started on gluten free and felt so overwhelmed at the store. I wanted some crackers to go with the hummus I was making and couldn’t find any!

    1. Hi Carol, I’m not a dietitian or nutritionist, this is simply a recipe created in my kitchen. I do think there are websites out there which allow you to put in the ingredients of an item and find out the “nutritional value”, that may be helpful for figuring that info out.

  4. This looks like a great recipe for me to try. I would like to eat more gluten free, but the GF crackers I have tried from the store I have not liked.

  5. LOVE this. Just found you on Ahalogy via this and your magic eraser. You think just like I do. Would love to keep in touch! GREAT blog.

  6. I’m curious about these-crackers I have made in the past are too hard to chew- how are these? I am looking for a gfree cracker and these look great but wanted to know if they are crazy hard to eat. Thanks!!

      1. I had the same problem with Lauren, it’s too tough, I reduced the amount of oil and butter. is that the reason?
        but why does reducing oil and butter matter? because some health problem of my mom I can’t add butter. are there any way to substitute it?

        1. Yes, the butter is mainly what makes the big difference in the soft and flakiness of the crackers. Can you use any kind of butter alternative?

  7. I am going to try these tomorrow. I have a grain mill, so I ground up some of my brown rice to make fresh brown rice flour. I hope they taste as yummy as they look.

    BTW, I LOVE your website! I visit at least once daily! Thanks for taking the time to share your knowledge with us “city folk.”

  8. I made these and they are so good . They are not to crunchy. I did turn the heat down a bit and watched them closely.

    My only concern was eating all of them, and they are kinda high in calories . I used gluten free flour. Lots of calories. But those babies got a cracker craving out of my way. Thanks so much for the recipe.

  9. Hi Merissa, I am visiting your blog from the Monday Block Party! Great recipe! I use brown rice flour a lot! I think I will make these crackers very soon!

  10. We’re always on the hunt for gluten free recipes! Thanks for sharing this cracker recipe. They look yummy!

  11. I like these, I am not much of a baker but I think I could make these. Thank you so much for sharing the recipe and for linking up with us at #WWDParty. Have an awesome weekend.

  12. Your crackers look really delicious and I love that they are healthier and gluten free as well. As for my favourite cracker pairing – it has to be a good aged cheddar and crackers for me 🙂

  13. Hi, nice website and concept, I saw you’re in S. Dakota, we loved the. Badlands. I’m interested in trying the natural red velvet cake too. On this recipe, I used my own brown rice flour that I make myself with my coffee grinder. But I think the grains were too big because the dough was very difficult to roll without cracking, and whereas the crackers did bake fine, they turned out very crumbly and grainy. Problem with getting finer grade flours is that I live in Mexico and they’re just not commercially available here and shipping from the U.S. would be astronomical. Any suggestions?

    1. Is there any flour available to you that would be more finely ground? Gluten free things are very picky and this recipe does need a finely ground flour to be able to work.

  14. I ground black rice and brown rice together. Turned out a dark flour and since I was on the Fast Metabolism Diet, I used coconut oil and olive oil, instead of butter. They were really good!

  15. These look fantastic! Could regular rice flour be used instead of brown rice flour? I’m on quite a restricted diet due to kidney failure and I can’t eat brown rice because it’s very high in phosphorous.

  16. Looks good! I know some gluten free people that would eat these right up! Thanks for sharing at Tips and Tricks!

  17. My sister eats GF and would love this recipe, I’m sending her the link now! Thanks for sharing this at Cook it! Craft it! Share it! I pinned this to our party board and can’t wait to see what you share this week!

  18. Thank you for the awesome recipe. I made the crackers with Gluten free Bob’s red mill’s flour ( I did not have enough brown rice) but the crackers turned out great. Finally a successful recipe!

  19. I just made a batch of these crackers and a batch of another recipe I found. I liked these the best out of the two although I think I may reduce the salt next time and make them a little thinner. I’m trying to stop myself from eating them all now so I can have some with my guacamole later this week.
    Any idea how long these will last in a tupperware container?

    1. You can always give it a try, I generally keep brown rice flour on hand so I don’t have much experience with white but I would guess it’s similar. 🙂

  20. What I find when I make these crackers, when I. Eat them it has a strong after bite left in the mouth and burning in throat. Would putting a bit of lemon juice in the recipee, help to nurtrilize the acid taste?
    Thanks for a suggestion.

  21. Hi,
    Your recipe looks good. But I’d like to warn you that brown rice DOES have GLUTEN in it. So celiacs can’t use that. Please put that up as a warning to celiacs. The symptoms are horrendous and it’s hard enough reading through ingredients and being surprised after already having eaten it when it turns out that something labelled as “gluten-free” actually wasn’t.

    1. 5 stars
      Brown rice does not have gluten, but I wouldn’t be surprised if some varieties are processed with it or in factories that use it. As long as you ensure that your rice flour (or rice if you are making it yourself) is labeled gluten free, the recipe should be celiac-friendly! I made these for my brother with celiac and he loved them!

  22. I made these one time with coconut oil. Bad mistake. They came out very tough and chewy. Yup, the butter makes all the difference.

  23. Has anyone tried modifying this recipe with spices like ginger? I’m interested in trying something different though I’ve made this recipe many times and love it. Thanks.

  24. These crackers turned out amazingly! I generally can’t be bothered to write a comment on how the recipe turned out but this recipe tastes so good and was so easy and turned out so well, I am.

    One thing I did was used my own ground rice flour – 1/2 cup of white rice hand ground and 1/2 cup of gluten free flour.
    Thank you for sharing this recipe!!

  25. Hello! I was looking through your recipes and found several yummy crackers to try. I was wondering, do you have any ideas for a similar Ritz cracker? We love the buttery salt flavor of these crackers, but we try to stay away from all soy products. Thank you!

  26. 5 stars
    i just made these with ground brown rice flour with my wondermill. this recipe worked well for me. on a side note, i added a lot of seasonings to the top when i put them in the oven, but for some reason i cant taste the seasonings. i wonder if they should be added after they come out of the oven.
