10 Easy Vegan Cracker Recipes

Never spend any money on store-bought crackers ever again, when you can make them at home! They are perfectly crispy, easy and quick to make.

You’ll only need 5 staple ingredients to make the most basic version of vegan crackers, and there are tons of variations possible (add seeds, herbs, even color them green with spinach!). I’ve also included a gluten-free option on this list of Easy Vegan Cracker Recipes! 

Vegan Cracker Recipes

Did you know you make the most delicious and crispiest crackers at home? There’s really no need to buy crackers ever again!

And the best part is that they aren’t even hard to make. In just 10 minutes of preparation time and after 15 minutes in the oven, you can enjoy your homemade crackers. It’s my go-to snack for parties! I usually serve them with hummus (or a variety of hummuses (apparently the plural of hummus – sounds weird) like this spinach hummus).

The ingredients for basic homemade crackers

For a basic version of crackers you’ll need:

  • flour
  • baking powder
  • salt
  • olive oil
  • water

That’s it. I bet you have all the ingredients at home already. So what are you waiting for? Go make some crackers for tonight!

You can add all kinds of herbs and seeds into the dough or on top (check out the instructions for the Za’atar Crackers to find out how to make the toppings stick to the crackers).

I’m listing my favorite variations of crackers below!

Black and White Sesame Crackers

Vegan Pizza Crackers

Vegan Za’atar Crackers

Za’atar is a traditional herb and spice blend of the Eastern Mediterranean cuisine. It’s a mix of dried sumac berries, marjoram, thyme, basil, oregano, white sesame seeds, and Himalayan pink salt. The perfect cracker topping!

Golden Turmeric Crackers

Turmeric has the power to tame heartburn or an upset stomach, prevent heart attacks, delay diabetes, fight cancer, protect the brain and curb joint pain. Convinced? Then you’ll definitely want to try my Golden Turmeric Crackers!

Vegan Everything Crackers

Vegan Everything Crackers with Poppyseeds, black and white sesame, flax seeds, cumin and pretzel salt

These crackers are for the ones who can’t (or won’t) decide on a seedy component to top the crackers with, because, seriously, life’s too short for such decisions. So we’re going to use (inspired by the famous bagel topping) ALL THE SEEDS.

Rosemary Crackers

Rosemary Crackers with Pumpkin HummusThese crispy crackers are made with chopped rosemary. Ground salt is sprinkled on top shortly before baking. 

Whole Wheat Seed Crackers

These crackers are made with Whole Wheat Flour and seeds (pumpkin, flaxseed, and sunflower). They are delicious served with either guacamole or hummus.

Spinach & Sesame Crackers

You can make crackers green by adding spinach! These Spinach & Sesame Crackers are the perfect, vibrant and healthy snack!

Cheesy Poppyseed Crackers

The nutritional yeast (or often called Nooch) adds the cheesiness, that’s why they are Cheesy Poppyseed Crackers.

Spelt Chia Crackers

Healthy & Vegan Spelt Chia Crackers | ElephantasticVegan.com

For these crackers, I’ve used 100% spelt flour and topped them with chia seeds. Chia seeds are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, they are a great source of iron, magnesium, zinc, calcium and many more vitamins.

Gluten-Free Chickpea Crackers

I’ve made these vegan & gluten-free crackers with chickpea flour, which is often also called besan flour or garbanzo flour, and added black sesame seeds. The perfect gluten-free alternative!

How long do they last without refrigeration? (I'm looking for a plastic-free alternative to carrying rice cakes in my car for impromptu snacks.)

Hello, My husband can't have oil of any kind and your crackers look so delicious, but are off limits. Have you ever tried to make a cracker without oil? He must also eat only whole grains. We are new to this and would appreciate any advice or tips on making crackers. Thank you! Melissa

The oil isn't necessary, you can leave it out. Although you might have to give the dough more time during rolling it out because the dough will be a bit harder to work with. Still you want to roll the crackers as thin as possible to ensure crispiness.
