Grain Free Crackers Recipe

One area of zero waste living that trips many people up is a simple pantry staple – grain free crackers! We show you how to make your own.

So you’ve gotten waste free living down to a fine art? You compost your food waste, grow some of your own vegies, make your own beauty products and use beeswax wraps instead of nasty cling wrap.

One area of zero waste living that trips many people up though is a simple pantry staple (especially when you have young kids!) – the humble snack food, crackers.

All conventional crackers come in plastic packaging and while at first baking your own grain free crackers may be seem time-consuming, we’re here to show you how simple and easy it really is.

Here’s our recipe for grain free crackers.


  • 1 cup sunflower meal (or whole sunflower seeds)
  • 2 tsp pepitas
  • 1⁄4 cup chia seeds
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1⁄2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp fresh or dried herbs (optional)

Grain Free Crackers Recipe


Preheat oven to 180°C.

If you like to grind your sunflower seeds fresh, you can do so in a blender first.

Add pepitas and grind them briefly. Add all other ingredients and blend together into a dough.

Place the dough on a tray lined with baking paper.

Place another piece of baking paper on top and roll the dough flat with a rolling pin.

Peel off the top layer of paper and score the crackers with a sharp knife into squares.

Bake in oven for 15 minutes or until golden brown.

Once cool, store in an airtight container.

You can double or triple the recipe and store the extra dough in the fridge until you are ready to bake them.
