Sesame and Poppyseed Crackers (Gluten, Diary and Sugar free)


In my on-going quest for good gluten-free crackers I have made many disappointing batches of dry, chalky, unpalatable ones.

But not these! These are delicious! With the added sesame and poppy seeds they have a lovely crunch!

Light, crispy, salty, herby…perfect!


I used a mixture of chickpea (gram) flour and a gluten free bread flour. The dough is brought together with olive oil and warm water and I flavoured these with oregano and a little parmesan, but I think many flavour combinations would work well and for a dairy free recipe just omit the parmesan.

I made them go with the Smoked Makerel and Sweet Potato Pate I made and they were so moreish I had to put them away lest I ate the whole lot!


Sesame and poppy seed Crackers (Gluten, Diary and Sugar free)


  • 100g gluten free bread flour
  • 100g chickpea(garbanzo or gram) flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 100mls warm water
  • 2 tbs light olive oil
  • 5 tbs sesame seeds
  • 1 tbs poppy seeds
  • 1 tbs oregano (or dried herbs, spices, seeds of choice)
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 30g shredded Parmesan (omit for a dairy free recipe)




  1. Preheat oven to 200C
  2. In a large bowl, combine all the dry ingredients
  3. Sir in warm water and olive oil, mixing to a smooth dough forms.
  4. Put some parchment paper on a flat surface and spray lightly with oil.
  5. Place the dough in the middle of it. Place another piece of parchment paper on top.
  6. Roll out the dough between the two pieces of parchment paper as thinly as possible (It will puff up slightly as it cooks)
  7. Remove the top layer of parchment paper and with a sharp knife, cut the rolled dough. Using a fork pierce all over
  8. Bake for 15-20 minutes, until crackers are crispy and golden
  9. Once baked, turn off the oven, remove the crackers and break them apart. Return to the cooling oven if they need to crisp up further.
