Simple grain-free crackers recipe
Simplicity at its finest! Give this grain-free crackers recipe a go, you won’t be disappointed. They are a perfect snack or key player for a platter. 


  • 1 cup unsalted sunflower seeds, hulled (can also use pumpkin seeds with great success!)
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt (the coarse kind is fine)
  • 3 cloves of garlic, peeled
  • 1 cup sesame seeds, hulled
  • Up to 1/4 cup water


1. Preheat oven to 175 degrees C.

2. In the bowl of the food processor, using the regular metal blade, combine the sunflower seeds, salt, and garlic. Turn food processor on and let it whir for 2-3 minutes until the seeds have turned into a dense flour.

3. Add in the sesame seeds and pulse to mix (the sesame seeds don’t need to mix all the way in). Slowly add in the water, a couple tablespoons at a time, until the seeds all clump together in a ball.

4. Remove and knead to distribute the sesame seeds through the sunflower seed mixture. The mixture isn’t a very pretty colour at this point, but it improves beautifully with baking.

5. Between parchment paper, roll the dough out until it is very thin for crisper crackers, or up to 1/2 cm thick for more sturdy crackers, in as close to a rectangle shape as possible.

6. Using the parchment paper, flip the whole rectangle of dough onto a baking tray, keep the crackers on a layer of parchment paper to bake for easy removal.

7. Cut into rectangles with a pizza cutter or sharp knife. We’ll use the cut lines to break the crackers on after they’re cooked.

8. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until golden brown. Allow to cool while still on the cookie sheet, then break along scored lines and serve.
