Easy to Make Grain-Free Almond Chia Crackers

Easy to Make Grain-Free Almond Chia Crackers

Are crackers a staple in your home? Since we do a lot of finger food lunches in our home, crackers come in very handy.  They are a vehicle for some really healthy toppings including pâté, goat cheese and raw honey, avocado ranch, guacamole, grass-fed cheese, sliced meat, hummus, tuna salad, egg salad, and nut butter.

Instead of always serving riced-based gluten-free crackers all the time, I try to mix it up with grain-free crackers.  It helps us with blood sugar issues and helps the kids stay full longer.

Grain-free/egg-free/dairy-free crackers // This House of JoyDuring my egg-free days, I relied heavily on this egg-free/grain-free cracker pictured above.  It is light and flaky and kind of reminds me of pie crust! In fact, I have used it to make mini quiches! If you’re on an allergy-free diet, I highly recommend trying it!

Now that I am eating eggs again (yay!), I started working on a new cracker.  My goal was to make it firm enough to be spreadable, yet still light and crispy…after some test batches, we had a winner!

The resulting cracker is rich and buttery and firm enough to spread my favorite toppings on.  They are so good that they can definitely be a stand-alone snack.  I hope you enjoy them as much as we have so far!!

Grain-Free Chia Almond Crackers
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 8
  1. Preheat the oven to 350
  2. Add all ingredients except the chia seeds to the bowl of your food processor and pulse until combined
  3. Add the chia seeds and pulse to combine without grinding up the seeds
  4. Form the “dough” into a ball and transfer it to a sheet of parchment paper on a flat surface
  5. Add another piece of parchment on top and press the dough down to flatten it
  6. Use a rolling pin to roll the dough out to cracker thickness (1/8″ thick-ish)
  7. Use a pizza cutter to cut into your desired size…try to make them uniform so that they will cook evenly
  8. You can remove the edges and re-roll them to get more crackers, or just bake them as is
  9. Place the parchment paper on a baking sheet and spread the crackers out a bit. They will cook better that way
  10. Bake for 12-14 minutes until golden brown and crispy
  11. Transfer to a cooling rack to cool and then store in an airtight container

  1. Any idea of how many carbs per cracker? Trying to eat low carb and low sugar. Miss crackers!

  2. What do you think a good substitute for arrowroot would be? I don’t have any, I have never used it before and I may have to order some if it’s going to be worth it.
