If you’re gluten free and miss good ol’ crackers, you’re going to love this quinoa crackers recipe. Whether you love salty crackers straight up or dipping them in hummus or spreading them with toppings, these crackers hold up beautifully!
Quinoa is a staple in our home, we have it as a side dish often. However, quinoa flour is still new to me.
If you’ve never heard of quinoa flour, you can find it in most grocery stores in the natural section (look for Bob’s Red Mill).
You will also find it at your local health food store.
Or you can just order it on Amazon here. This way you don’t don’t have to leave your house.

Quinoa Crackers Recipe
Crunchy, salty, and addictive. You’re going to love this recipe for quinoa crackers!
Tip: Brush the crackers with a bit of olive oil before baking them. This makes them golden and crunchy.
I also like to sprinkle them with more sea salt on top because I love a salty cracker! However, feel free to just omit the salting on top if you are going for a more neutral flavor. The spices are also optional (but super tasty and I encourage you to follow the recipe).
