Cheese and crackers are a classic combo, but if you’re trying to cut down on the gluten or grains, you may think that your cracker options are limited. Not so. I recently discovered the world of gluten-free crackers. If you’re looking to put away the saltines, check out some of these healthier options:
These crackers are one of my new personal favorites because they’re both gluten- and grain-free, made solely with blanched almond flour, cassava flour, flax, chia seeds, sesame seeds, and spices. They’re nutty and are just as satisfying straight out of the box as they are with some cheese and cold cuts.
We stock these amazing crackers in the office kitchen. They are made with a combination of gluten-free flours like sprouted buckwheat and amaranth. They come in flavors like Italian Herb and Garlic & Onion—which is almost like eating sour cream & onion potato chips.
The Sea Salt Adzuki Bean cracker, made with brown rice flour, adzuki beans, coconut flour and cassava flour is my go-to. Adzuki beans are a great beauty food. They help to prevent inflammation and are a great source of protein. I even use them in my Buffing Grains for Face.
Made mainly with brown rice flour, these come in three umami-packed flavors: Original, Roasted Garlic, and Rosemary & Olive Oil. They’re also widely available at many supermarkets across the country, so that you can just pick up a box or two to try on your next grocery run.
You have to go to Café Clover in New York City for these seed crackers, but The Chalkboard has a great recipe that you can make in bulk at home. Amazingly, the recipe doesn’t use any flour at all—just pure seeds!
Are there any gluten-free crackers I should know about? Let me know your picks.
