Gluten-Free Cheesy Crackers

cheese crackers

Gluten-free cheese crackers that are just as crispy and delicious as the original. 


  • 1/2 cup brown rice flour
  • 1/2 cup tapioca flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/3 cup finely grated sharp cheddar cheese
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted or 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
  • 35 tablespoons water


  1. Preheat the oven to 350F.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the flours, salt, garlic powder, and cheese. 
  3. Add the melted butter and water 1 tablespoon at a time mixing to combine after each addition.
  4. Once a dough forms, knead it into a ball. 
  5. Place the dough on parchment paper or a nonstick rolling mat. Roll out into a rectangular shape until the dough is about 1/8-inch thick.
  6. Slice into crackers with a knife, pizza slicer, or cookie cutters (you can re-roll scraps and rough edges to make more.)
  7. Transfer the parchment paper with the crackers to a baking sheet. For a more golden look, lightly spray or brush the tops of the crackers with melted butter or oil. Sprinkle extra sea salt and cheese over the top, if desired.
  8. Bake for about 12 minutes, until starting to turn golden. Turn the oven off, but leave the crackers in the oven for 5 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool completely. Store in an airtight container.



You can use melted coconut oil or palm shortening instead of butter, but they will change the flavor. I prefer using 1/2 teaspoon olive oil, then adding 1 to 2 more tablespoons water (for 4 to 5 tablespoons total.)
