I’ve been asked quite a few times if the cracker recipes on the blog work with gluten-free flour. Now I’ve finally had the chance to give it a try. And it works, however the measurements had to be adapted. I’ve made these vegan & gluten-free crackers with chickpea flour, which is often also called besan flour or garbanzo flour. These are super delicious and crispy, however I’d only recommend these crackers to you if you like chickpeas and the taste of chickpeas. Because the chickpea flour has a strong chickpea-taste (duh) :) I liked them a lot and I think they turned out great, they’re the perfect snack for people who do not want or can’t do gluten.
I’ve added black sesame seeds into the dough because I like my crackers to have little cute spots, but of course you can leave those out completely or sub them with flax seeds, dried herbs, … there are so many possibilities!
Roll the dough out on a baking paper, but I’d suggest placing a second baking paper on top, because the gluten-free dough is stickier than the dough that I usually use for crackers.
Cutting them with a pizza cutter is the easiest and fastest method. Cut the rolled out dough lengthwise and widthwise! Don’t worry if the pieces have different sizes, I think it looks great and gives the crackers an additional homemade touch. But make sure they all have same thickness in order to bake them evenly.
These crackers are so easy to make and they take only about 25 minutes! Perfect for spontaneous guests or as a healthy gluten-free snack!
- Pre-heat the oven to 400°F/200°C.
- In a bowl add in the dry ingredients, mix, add in the oil and then slowly add the water until you can form a dough like in the photo. Mix and knead with your hand until it's smooth.
- Between two baking sheets roll out the dough until thin and evenly.
- Cut it with a pizza cutter length- and widthwise.
- Bake them in the oven for about 20 minutes (until they get crispy) and serve :)
