gluten free masala crackers

On cold winter days when you cannot step outside, you just want to enjoy a cup of tea with some light crackers. Here is a gluten free cracker recipe using some whole grain flours and nutritional yeast flakes for the cheesy flavor. It has a crisp texture and holds together really well. If unsure about the taste of yeast flakes, you could use a lesser amount than suggested.

Adapted from here.



gluten-free oat flour- 1/4 cup

amaranth flour- 1/4 cup

sorghum flour- 1/2 cup

tapioca starch- 1/2 cup (cornstarch would work well too)

almond flour- 3/4 cup

nutritional yeast flakes- 1/4 cup

baking soda- 1/2 tsp.

salt- 1 tsp.

sugar- 1 tsp.


canola oil- 1/4 cup

water- 1/4 cup

milk- 1/4 cup


onion pieces- 2 tbsp.

chili powder- 3/4 tsp.

turmeric powder- a pinch

sesame seeds- 1 tbsp.


* In a mixing bowl combine flours, dry ingredients and spices.

* Add oil, milk to the mixture and water a little at a time to make a knead-able dough.

* Roll out between two sheets of wax paper. Make squares with a pizza knife and poke holes with a fork.


* Arrange on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake at 350 °C in a preheated oven for 16-18 minutes.

* Cool on wire rack and store in an airtight box.

    • I’m sure the crackers will come out fine even without it. The nutritional yeast does not play a role in binding (oats does), it just adds a cheesy flavor.


  1. I’m doing the gluten-free thing right now to see if it helps with my allergies and I’m getting tired of eating rice cakes all the time. I’m gonna give these a try – thanks for the recipe!! Celeste 🙂
