What you'll need
This recipe features combination of ALMOND, RICE and BUCKWHEAT flours - all gluten-free. This combinations gives crispy crackers, which we enriched with DRIED OREGANO and SWEET PAPRIKA.
Almond flour is an ideal gluten-free option for baked goods, not only for crackers but for cookies, muffins and cakes (Blue Diamond and Dragon Superfoods are the brands that we recommend).
Rice flour is a great alternative to wheat flour in cakes and cookies, while buckwheat flour with its specific taste have rustic appearance.
This set of 5 containers (with airtight lids) is a great for keeping your flours fresh for months.

Make the dough
Making these crackers are so easy and you will need only one bowl to make a dough (you'll love these ceramic mixing bowls with extra-deep design and stable base). The recipe start with stirring together flours, sweet paprika, oregano and salt in one bowl. Continue with adding cubed butter and rubbing into the dry ingredients. Finally, add water and knead a compact dough.
Shape the crackers
For shaping the crackers prepare a pastry mat and rolling pin by dusting both with some flour. Roll out the dough thinly (about 2-3mm), then using a flutted pastry wheel cut desired shapes - squares, rectangles, triangles or use round cookie cutter.
We made squares 5x5cm then cutted them diagonally to get triangles. Bake crackers in the oven until they become lightly brown (7-8 minutes) and leave them on the baking sheet to crisp up as they will be very fragile once taken from the oven.
Some useful tips for making perfect crackers...
- When rolling the dough, roll it thinly and evenly what will ensure crisp crackers. The thinner the dough is, the better it will crisp. The best way to to this is by rolling the dough on the pastry mat or floured baking paper. Once cutted transfer crackers using metal thin spatula to the baking sheet as they are fragile and soft, so may crack.
- Water helps bring the dough together, but don't add too much. Just enough to bring the dough together.
- Prick the crackers with fork before baking - this will allow steam to escape so crackers don't puff up as they bake.
Storing gluten-free oregano paprika crackers
Store leftover crackers in an airtight container on the counter for 5-7 days. If your crackers become less crispy, arrange them on a baking sheet and put in the oven at 175°C/347°F for a few minutes to re-crisp.
