Gluten-Free Cheese Cracker Recipe

Gluten Free Cheese Crackers

Teri Lee Gruss
Here is a cheesy, gluten-free cracker recipe that adds versatility and flavor to appetizer trays and snack packs. This recipe is as easy as making cut-out cookies. Adapted from a recipe by Bob's Red Mill- "Savory Gluten-Free Crackers."

Prep Time: 30 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 50 minutes


  • 3/4 cup amaranth flour
  • 1/2 cup arrowroot starch OR cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup almond meal
  • 1 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon gluten-free onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cayenne
  • 6 tablespoons olive oil
  • 6 tablespoons buttermilk OR your favorite dairy substitute
  • 1 cup freshly grated sharp cheddar cheese


Preheat oven to 350°
  1. Place all dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl and whisk to thoroughly combine.
  2. Add olive oil and buttermilk and mix until a ball forms.
  3. If the dough is too crumbly, add more buttermilk, one teaspoon at a time, until a ball of dough forms.
  4. Divide the dough in half and place on a work surface, liberally sprinkled with white rice flour. Flour a rolling pin and roll the dough until it is is very thin, about the thickness of a pie crust.
  5. Cut cracker circles with a 1 1/2 inch biscuit or cookie cutter, or use a knife to cut dough into 1 1/2 to 2 inch squares. Use a spatula to transfer crackers to a large, ungreased baking sheet.
  6. Repeat process with remaining cracker dough.
  7. Bake for 15 minutes. Carefully transfer crackers to two wire cooling racks. Carefully place racks wih crackers back on baking sheets and bake for 6 minutes. Remove from oven.
  8. Cool completely and store for up to 5 days in an airtight container.
Makes 70 1 1/2 inch round crackers.

Serve with dips, cheese spreads or make nut butter cracker sandwiches.

Just score and break apart...much easier!, Member MountainMama22

I'm not sure what the user before meant by it's too difficult to do this. Puh-leez! GF cooking and baking isn't an easy process, because we're so spoiled by just adding water to a mix filled with glutenized mess and then ""cooking"" it. This is an easy enough recipe and if you've been baking or cooking GF for any amount of time you have this stuff on hand. I'm happy to do this for my hubby (Gluten Intolerant) and son (ADD) . It helps them feel satisfied with their ""diets"" and they're not missing things like they did before. Crackers are a biggie. I'd rather make them than spend $6 on a 6 oz box. My suggestion is to roll these flat, score the dough with a knife and then break them apart once they're cool. It's a cracker and this gives them a bit of an ""artisanal"" look. HAPPY GF EATING!
