Recipe Directions

  • 1. Mix everything together in a mixing bowl.
  • 2. Line two dehydrator trays with parchment paper or teflex sheets. Spread batter evenly on two trays using the back of a spoon.

  • 3. Start dehydrating the crackers. I generally dehydrate everything at 120 degrees for the first hour, then I reduce the temperature to 105 degrees for the remainder of the cooking time.
  • 4. Score the crackers. Once the crackers are starting to harden up (four hours later?), use a knife to score the crackers along wherever you want the crackers to separate. (This will make them easier to break later on.)
  • 5. Remove paper or teflex. Once the crackers are holding their shape together very well (8 hours in the dehydrator?), break them apart along the score lines. Remove the parchment or teflex sheets and place the crackers directly on the dehydrator tray.
  • 6. Finish dehydrating. Some people like their crackers a bit moist. I like this particular recipe to be very dry. If you plan on keeping them for a few weeks or more in storage, then you must ensure that there is no moisture left.

The Rawtarian's Thoughts

By The Rawtarian

Having a basic raw cracker recipe at your disposal is integral. Make sure to always have a batch of basic raw crackers on hand at all times. Crackers are very helpful when you need to throw together a quick raw meal or snack. Raw crackers are integral to helping you keep with the raw food diet lifestyle.

Here is my standby basic raw cracker recipe, which I use on a regular basis. Feel free to modify to suit your fancy. For example, you could make a sweeter cracker by omitting the savoury spices and adding cinnamon, for example.

This recipe makes enough for two dehydrator trays' worth of raw crackers. Try it as is once to make sure that you'll like it. Then, forever more, double or triple the recipe! Buy parchment paper or teflex sheets (which can be purchased from dehydrator sellers). 

I store dehydrated crackers in the freezer in a large ziploc bag.

Eat and enjoy! I love avocado, sprouts, and tomato on raw crackers. Mmm!

Just put these in the dehydrator, can't wait. I rolled them out using a piece of waxpaper and a rolling pin, worked perfect. I put the mixture on my telflex sheet, covered with wax paper and rolled out using my rolling pin. No sticking and was able to get an even layer. :)

I would love to try this! I tasted some raw crackers at a friends house and they tasted awesome (I'm not sure if this is the recipe they used but I think it might be). My question is can I make this without a dehydrator? Would a low temp oven do the trick?

Hi Felicity,

No sorry, it's not possible to make these without a dehydrator. But the good news is I have many easy route recipes that don't require any equipment, like these sweet bars or these macaroons :)

I made these today in my new Excalibur ( thank you Santa!) and they are amazing! Lovely recipe, I had no sunflower seeds so subbed pumpkin instead. Really yummy with houmus and your guacamole recipe. Cheers!

Do you need to soak flax seeds? I've only made flax crackers with soaked flax seeds.

Hi Andy, no, do not soak!

In my recipes, you only need to soak if the recipe explicitly tells you to

Basic raw cracker recipe

I love this recipe, I make it all the time. I add nooch, chili, pumpkin seeds and a tomato to it tho. I take roughly diced chili, pepper, tomato, and the water and blend them in the high-speed blender...saves me having to chop things too fine. I add the herbs right at the end so they don't blend too much. This is my 'go to' recipe and even get requests to make them for other people!

Hi, I absolutely love your recipes! I'm "dying" to try at least one the only dilemma is I do not own a dehydrator. Would you recommend a specific dehydrator to work best or will an inexpensive round one do he trick? In this case do you get a bang for your buck if I spend extra on a brand named dehydrator? Is it worth the invested monies?... Please let me know your thoughts...

Hi Catalina,

Best dehydrator is 9-tray excalibur, hands down. But... it is expensive! http://tinyurl.com/ah6o3qt

You can also get a Vegikiln - they are cheaper, white, not as "reputable" but they get the job done: http://tinyurl.com/avb59e3

You should get a 8-to-10-tray, and do not get a round dehydrator.

Lone's Review

Basic raw cracker recipe

5 out of 5

I just got my Excalibur and this was the first recipe I tried... I added 4 tbsp of peppers & parsley each and I used Asian spice and chillie peppers too.. I should have measure the spice though lol.. a little seems to go a LONG way! .. I still loved the crackers and will make a basic batch to have on hand as I'm trying to go grain free - which leaves nuts and seeds :) yum! .. Anyway.. Thanks for for this great recipe! Have you tried freezing these? Not sure if it's even necessary but wondering about longevity as I like to use all 9 shelves but since there's only one of me, I also don't want to waste anything. :)

Hi Lone, I also find that flavours intensify when dehydrated, so a little definitely goes a long way - as you discovered :)

Raw crackers freeze really well. I keep mine in plastic freezer bags (ziploc). Sometimes I eat them right out of the freezer - they don't need to defrost much at all.

This was my first raw "cooking" endeavor and I was incredibly pleased. They taste like the ones I have paid six dollars for at Whole Foods. Crunchy, nutty, and flavorful. Can't WAIT to make hummus and have these for a snack.

I suck at following recipes so I used this as more of a guide. This is the reason I struggle to be a good baker. :)

These will be a staple in my home from now on.

Thanks for sharing!!

Just turned on the dehydrator for a batch with chia instead of sesame. Fingers crossed! In my little Nesco 400 watt round, I had enough for 3 trays. I'll let you know how they turn out!
