Quinoa Sticks | Crackers – With Real Ingredients
I like to use in my recipes real ingredients, not just lots of starches and eggs. It is also important for me to get a crunchy tasty finish and that’s what these gluten free vegan quinoa sticks deliver.
Quinoa is a whole-grain seed often favored by vegetarians and vegans for its high protein content. It is also a rich source of resistant starch, which makes a perfect base for ingredients to stick together.
Therefore in this recipe I didn’t use quinoa flour but some cooked quinoa instead. The flax seeds, sesame seeds, chia seeds and walnuts are packed with healthy nutrients plus they provide some crunchiness too!
A Healthy Quinoa Snack
It’s pretty much impossible to just go to the store and buy vegan gluten free snacks without additives, so why not make them yourself. I like that these quinoa sticks can be enjoyed as a snack as well , on the road, in your purse or you can even pack them in your kid’s lunch box. They will keep your hunger satiated for sure whenever it hits you.
How To Make Quinoa Sticks / Crackers
- Preheat oven to 370 degrees F.
- In food processor, add all ingredients together and mix until just combined and smooth.
- Scoop the dough onto a piece of parchment paper large enough to cover a baking sheet. Spread with a spoon a little and then proceed with a rolling pin until is thin enough for your liking. To avoid sticking cover the mixture with some plastic wrap before rolling.
- Cut into 1 cm wide sticks with a pizza cutter and bake until slightly brown. The result should be crispy crunchy quinoa sticks!
Tip: let the quinoa sticks cool completely before handling, they can be fragile while warm. Then you can divide and separate and store in an airtight container for up to a week!

Tips For Making Quinoa Sticks / Crackers
- In this recipe you can use white quinoa, red or a mix of both. The flavor of white quinoa is less noticeable, so that’s what I like to use.
- The amount of liquid needed in the recipe can vary depending on how dry is your quinoa porridge. Add little by little and work your way up if necessary.
- The addition of oil (fat) gives these quinoa sticks crispness, so I recommend not skipping this step. You can use some vegan butter, or other preferred oil.
- If you prefer sweet snacks, you can add more sweetener: maple syrup or coconut sugar. The sugar also helps with forming a nice crust.
- Store the quinoa sticks / crackers in a an airtight container for up to a week.
