Have you ever made homemade crackers? It may sound daunting, but they’re surprisingly easy to make! The dough comes together in less than two minutes, and all you need is one bowl and a handful of ingredients. No special equipment required! You’ll need a baking sheet, a rolling pin and some parchment paper. No yeast, no kneading, no waiting for the dough to rise.
You can customize this gluten-free cracker recipe by using any spices or herbs available in your pantry. We also tested this recipe using spelt flour and regular all purpose flour, and the crackers came out delicious every time.
Ingredients Needed to Make Homemade Crackers
- Flour – Since we wanted to make a falafel cracker, we used chickpea flour for this recipe, but you can use white, spelt or a combination of whole wheat and white flours. If you want to keep this recipe gluten-free, you can use any one-to-one gluten-free baking flour. You might need to add a few extra tablespoons of water to make the dough come together, depending on the flour you choose.
- Herbs, spices and seeds – we mixed a whole bunch of spices in this recipe to achieve a falafel flavor. You can choose any seasoning you have on hand such as:
- Salt and pepper
- Sumac and sesame seeds
- Flax seeds and sunflower seeds
- Herbes de Provence
- Italian seasoning
- Nutritional yeast and chili powder
- Grilling seasoning
- Everything bagel seasoning
- Mushroom powder
- Salt – We used sea salt to bring all the flavors of these falafel crackers together. Adapt the amount of salt to your taste.
- Oil – We used extra virgin olive oil in our recipe, but you can use any oil you like.
- Water – helps bring the dough together.
