How To Make Chia Seed Crackers

Mary’s Organic Crackers (whole grains, gluten-free, vegan)

Youll make these crackers in the oven so preheat it to 300°F. Meanwhile, youll blitz the dry ingredients in a food processor or pulse in your blender until the seeds are roughly pulverized. Then transfer this rough meal to a bowl and add water to form a paste.

Spread this chia paste on a large piece of parchment paper, place another piece of parchment on top and roll to make a thin, even layer. Afterwards, carefully peel away the top layer of parchment. Score the chia seed layer so youll be able to break apart the individual crackers easily after baking. Add some toppings if you like.

Finally, bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until the crackers are crispy. At the same time, take care not to over bake. Since the crackers are so thin, they can burn easily.

When youve removed the crackers from the oven, theyll also be quite hot so let them cool before breaking them into individual crackers and storing them in an air-tight container. Theyll stay fresh for at least a week and up to two weeks.

Homemade Marys Gone Crackers

  • I really love your recipe! It keeps on giving. We are unable to get Mary’s Crackers at Costco anymore, and they are my favorite cracker. Just too expensive! Most ‘healthy’ crackers are so salty and oily. I tried this, only adding 1/4 cup finely chopped walnuts, 3/4 tsp of salt, and not using any herbs. I also soaked the chia seeds in a little water out of habit. Instead of rolling the batter out, we formed an assembly line. I made tiny balls, maybe 3/4 inch across, and my partner carefully flattened them between two pieces of lightly oiled parchment into thin circles. To minimize sticking, we peeled each cracker from the parchment and laid it lightly on a greased cookie sheet. I baked them at 350 for about 14 minutes, then turned them over and baked around 6 or 7 minutes more. We made 96 crackers the first time, but they were gone within three days. We HAD to make another batch. To save time, I rolled out part of the second batch. These didn’t bake up crispy as quickly, re the difference in baking times. My partner also likes the perfect little circles the ball method makes. These crackers are PHENOMENAL! Lighter, thinner and not as hard as Mary’s. Divinely crispy and nutty. A bit labor intensive, but so satisfying to make. THANK YOU SO MUCH! I can’t wait to try your other healthy treats.
  • The Crackers Contain Oats

    Some of these gluten-free cracker brands contain oats, which means they may be making you sick. First, lets clear up a common misconception. Yes, oats are naturally gluten-free. Many people with gluten intolerance or even celiac disease can eat oats without a problem. So, lets not outrightly vilify oats, OK?

    However, the way oats are grown and processed often puts them in close contact with wheat, barley, and rye grains that contain gluten. Thats why people who are sensitive to gluten may have problems with the GF cracker brands that contain oats. If you want to try the cracker but feel nervous that you may get sick because you dont know how youll react to oats, you can stick with a certified gluten-free cracker brand and see how you feel.

    However, some people simply cannot tolerate oats, even when they are certified gluten free. This is because those people have the antibodies that will react to a protein in oats, making their digestive system go haywire. For those people, its best to avoid all foods containing oats, even oats that are certified gluten free.

    Chia Seed Cracker Ingredient Variations

    These vegan crackers are easy to customize. You can add things like:

    • toasted oats
    • nutritional yeast
    • spices and herbs

    Try to keep the ratio of dry ingredients and liquids in mind, though different dry ingredients will absorb more or less liquid. You can double the amount of dry ingredients without increasing the amount of chia seeds. Adding extra grains like toasted oats tends to lighten the texture of the crackers.

    substitutionsYou can substitute chia seeds directly for flax seeds, though the flavour will be a bit nuttier. You can also substitute sunflower seeds for other seeds or nuts. I have had a viewer regret choosing pine nuts as a substitute though. Sunflower seeds are quite low in fat compared to others so keep this in mind when choosing substitutes.

    liquid ingredientsYou can also change the liquid from water to something else to add more flavour. For example:

    • pickle juice
    • tomato sauce or paste
    • diluted balsamic vinegar

    If you end up adding too much liquid, even things out by adding some more ground chia/flax/oats. Just also remember to slightly increase the salt too. Play around with this and have fun!

    Just make sure your cracker dough looks a lot like the texture shown in the video. Im sorry I didnt get a photo for you yet. The recipe comes together so quickly that when I make it, I dont even think about taking pictures. Ill update this post when I do though.

    Celiac Disease And Gluten

    Mary

    What is Celiac Disease? How is it diagnosed? Celiac disease is a serious genetic autoimmune disorder where the ingestion of gluten leads to damage in the small intestine. Consult with your physician if you think you may have celiac disease or any other intestinal disorder. The first step in feeling better is always knowledge.

    What is gluten? Gluten is a general name for the proteins found in wheat , rye, barley and triticale a cross between wheat and rye. Gluten helps foods maintain their shape, acting as a glue that holds food together. Gluten can be found in many types of foods, even ones that would not be expected.

    How To: Make Your Own Marys Gluten Free Crackers

    I love a good cracker.

    And while taste is important, for me the crunch factor is key to the ultimate cracker experience.

    I LOVE for this very reason.

    So I went ahead and copied em.

    I cant take credit for this brilliant copycat move, though. That goes to Melissa from My Whole Food Life. Ive adjusted the seasoning, bake temperature and time after making a couple of batches myself, but otherwise I havent changed a little old thing.

    Also, these are healthy as hell. Simple, whole ingredients baked up into a delicious crispy snack.

    I bought all of these ingredients at Bulk Barn and calculated you can make about 3 batches for the same price as one box .

    Heres a little photo tutorial for yall.

    These are perfect for dipping because they are super hearty. Theyve got great flavour on their own though, so dont be shy to shove them directly in your face either.

    Happy snacking,

    The Best Homemade Gluten Free Crackers Recipe

    The best homemade gluten free crackers recipe you have tried, and will soon replace any store bought variety. With only a few whole-grain, nutrient dense ingredients, these gluten free crackers will keep you coming back for more.

    Homemade gluten free crackers sound like they would be a piece of cake to make, but they have actually been one of those recipes that has taken me a while to get just right.

    Personally I LOVE a good cracker, and so when creating a gluten free cracker recipe there are a lot of things to think about. Like what will the cracker be used for?

    • Does it need to be hard and crunchy, or more flaky?

    • Does it need to have a strong flavor, or should be a a subtle background to whatever you are choosing to serve it with?

    For this gluten free crackers recipe I knew I wanted something that could be enjoyed on its own, but also would be great to serve on a cheese board with some hummus and my favorite cheddar.

    This meant that for this recipe I wanted gluten free crackers that had a nice crunch and a mild salt/pepper taste, but I promise we will have some fun creating some other more flavorful varieties in the future.

    This in my opinion is the best part about making gluten free products from scratch because you truly get to control every single item that goes into your recipe and then into your body, making homemade baked goods and cooking always the most health conscious choice.

    No More Plastic Food Packaging

    Over the past few years we have moved almost entirely away from packaged foods that come in plastic, but crackers were still one of the few foods that we would buy somewhat regularly that came in plastic packaging.

    While it is possible to find paper packaging, often times the actual food will still be wrapped in plastic on the inside of the box . Since we still dont have great truly plastic free alternatives to our plastic packaging crisis, I have taken it upon myself to slowly learn how to make my favorite packaged food items from scratch.

    Now that I have this recipe though it couldnt be easier to whip up a batch or two of crackers to keep on hand. Within 20 minutes I can have crackers ready to go and let me tell you making them myself is much more affordable than buying the $6 TINY box at the supermarket.

    How To Find Gluten

    Most crackers are made with either wheat, rye or barley. These grains and their derivatives all contain gluten, which is a type of protein, according to the Celiac Disease Foundation.

    While classics like Goldfish and graham crackers all contain wheat, you’ll likely find multiple brands of gluten-free crackers at your local grocer. But before you add any products to your shopping cart, it’s crucial that you read the ingredient list and check for appropriate labels on the package.

    First, scan the nutrition label for any wheat, rye or barley-based ingredients, the Celiac Disease Foundation recommends. Always be on the lookout for hidden gluten foods, like malt or wheat starch. Also, check the allergen listing for gluten or wheat.

    Next, look for a “Gluten-Free” label on the cracker package. When a food is marked Gluten-Free, that means it has been regulated by the FDA and contains 20 parts per million of gluten or less, which is a generally safe amount.

    Your crackers are also safe to eat if the package has a Certified Gluten-Free seal. This means the food has been tested by a third party such as the Gluten-Free Certification Organization . The GFCO sets particularly strict standards and labels foods that only contain 10 ppm of gluten or less.

    Tip

    What may set some of these crackers apart is the sodium, sugar and fiber contents. When choosing a GF cracker, gluten content is a priority, but you’ll also want to look at the rest of the label for the healthiest options.

    Homemade Gluten Free Crackers Recipe

    Now lets get to this recipe. You can feel free to season them however you like.

    Personally I made these crackers in a variety of flavors by adding garlic powder, nutritional yeast, a sprinkle of parmesan, and rosemary/thyme but my personal favorite is the option below which adds a sprinkle of sea salt, pumpkin, and sunflower seeds.

    The options really are endless but for this recipe below I just went with the classic salt and pepper since I knew I wanted to serve them with a wide variety of foods.

    The Crackers Are On A Tray With Gluten

    Mary

    Sometimes a party host will be thoughtful and provide gluten-free options but not realize that those options are no longer safe if they come in contact with gluten-containing foods. Crackers are often put on a tray with a random assortment of foods. If any of those foods come near gluten, they are no longer safe for people with celiac disease or gluten intolerance. Be extra vigilant and watch for this issue when you go to a party or potluck.

    Let us know in the comments which of these gluten-free cracker brands you like the most. Also, share with us if youve ever reacted to any of the brands listed. Lets work together to keep each other safe!
