  • 1 c wholegrain flour (e.g. spelt/wheat)
  • 2 tbsp ground flax seeds
  • 2 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • ¼ tsp turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp vege stock powder (optional)
  • ¼ tsp ground black pepper (optional)


  • 5 tbsp coconut oil firm
  • 3 tbsp chilled water


  • Preheat oven to 180°C (350°F).
  • Blitz dry ingredients in food processor until combined. Add wet ingredients and pulse until crumbly. The mixture should form a dough when pressed together. If not add water as needed.
  • Split mixture in half and roll onto a floured surface until 1/4cm thick. Cut into rectangles and place on a lightly floured baking tray. Re-roll any offcuts and cut again until you've used up all the dough.
  • Bake for 12 mins until golden then cool. Store in a glass sealed jar for up to 3 weeks. Enjoy on their own or with your favourite dips.



  • Make it gluten free: swap the wholegrain flour for ⅓ c buckwheat flour, ⅓ c brown rice flour, and ⅓ c tapioca flour. Or 1 cup of your favourite gluten free blend.
  • You can grind your own flax seeds, or replace with ground chia seeds. Alternatively add 1 tsp of guar gum (these all help the crackers to bind).
  • If you have onion powder or garlic powder, try adding ½ tsp to the mix - even more delicious!
