Grain Free Crackers Recipe

This grain free crackers recipe is the perfect take-along snack!

For some of you, this recipe may or may not be considered clean. So use it or don’t at your own discretion. I say that simply because I use nutritional yeast in this, and some might say that nutritional yeast is not clean. That it’s processed.

But it’s simply a form of yeast, and since I consider yeast in bread baking to be clean, I take no issue with nutritional yeast. So again, it’s your choice, but I personally consider these to be clean.

I gave up dairy completely for the new year and I’m really feeling great. I will never go back and for some reason, I can’t imagine why it took me so long to truly give it up. I’ve had issues with it my entire life, but I guess you could say I was somewhat addicted. I just couldn’t imagine life without cheese or milk.

A small white bowl sits on a wooden table top, filled to the top with these square, Clean Eating Grain Free Rosemary Crackers.

But I can honestly say those days are behind me now, and so if I want a cheese flavor in something, I use nutritional yeast. I’ve always been drawn to any foods that are high in vitamin B’s anyway. My body must need them. So for me, this is a win-win. Plus, they are easy to make, just mix everything in one bowl, roll out and bake, and they are totally tasty! Oh, and totally grain free too!

Tapioca flour is often found in bulk at health food stores, but Bob’s Red Mill also sells it by the package. Tapioca flour or starch is one of the purest forms of starch there is. It often makes a great sub for wheat flour and is made from the root of the cassava plant. It’s also used as a thickener in soups, which I prefer to using cornstarch.

So if this fits your idea of clean eating, I hope you enjoy the crackers! If not, I have lots of other recipes here that you can enjoy. Just check out the recipe index above!

  • 1 cup almond flour
  • ¾ cup tapioca flour/starch
  • ½ tsp. sea salt
  • 1 tbsp. coconut oil, in liquid state
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tsp. dried rosemary
  • ¼ cup nutritional yeast
  • Water - Keep a small amount in a cup that you can measure out by the 1 tbsp. full.


  • Mix all ingredients in a mixing bowl EXCEPT for the water. Knead well.
  • If the dough seems crumbly add water, 1 tsp. at a time, kneading well between additions.
  • If you end up adding too much water, simply stir in a tiny bit more tapioca flour (about 1/2 tsp. at a time.)

  • Roll the dough out between two pieces of parchment paper until the dough is about an 1/8 inch in thickness.

  • Cut into squares and transfer the squares to a baking sheet using a spatula. Poking the crackers with a fork is optional and a tiny bit time-consuming, but I did find that they were crunchier when I did this.

  • Bake at 325 F. for approximately 20-30 minutes. They will be hard to the touch (don't burn yourself!) and have a slightly golden tint to them when they are done.
  • Allow to cool completely before eating, or they won't be crunchy.


Please note that the nutrition data below is a ballpark figure. Exact data is not possible. Note that you can certainly eat more than 2 crackers for one serving. I just had to pick a number in order to roughly calculate the data here.

  1. Have you tried these with anything other than almond flour? I am allergic to almonds, and find most alternative recipes use almond flour. I have experimented with coconut flour but it works for some recipes, not for others…

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Allison – Almond flour and coconut flour are very different animals. Coconut flour is very thirsty stuff. Almond flour is the extreme opposite. It soaks up almost no liquid. You could certainly try a different nut flour if you can have other nuts. Otherwise, I think a different cracker recipe might be best. I have goldfish crackers on my blog you might enjoy that are made with flour. But if grains are an issue, even a 50/50 blend of pumpkin and sunflower seed meal may work.

  2. The crackers look delicious! How are they stored and how long will they last? Thank you for all your wonderful recipes.

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Phyllis – Thank you! They were certainly tasty! I stored mine in a mason jar with a tight lid. But a zipper-top bag will work too. I kept mine in the fridge, but I don’t think that’s particularly necessary. They didn’t last long for us because we ate them so fast! But I would say, if you do keep them in the fridge, probably up to a month. That’s just a guess though because we ate them too fast. Hope it helps!

    All of a sudden I have to go grain free and dairy free, and I’m FREAKING out. Finding this recipe and your dairy free comments give me hope. World is not ending. I will feel better. Oh Gawd, give me strength. and More of your recipes 🙂

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Andrea – Oh no!! Well don’t panic. Something new is always a little daunting. But you’ll do just fine. Just take it one step at a time. It’s a learning path rather than a crash course. We all make mistakes. All you have to do is learn from them which is usually pretty easy when you react to something. Take a deep breath. You’ll do great! 🙂
