How To Make Gluten Free Crackers With Gluten Free Sourdough Discard

For this vegan gluten free cracker recipe I wanted to get a crispy, flaky texture which is not easy. So I needed to use a few gluten free starchy flours like cassava flour and white rice. The “glue” that hold these vegan gluten free sourdough crackers consists of ground flax seeds and psyllium husk, therefore no eggs are required for this recipe. Also check out these gluten free cassava crackers.

For extra fibre and flakiness I incorporated some tigernut flour (use extra fine almond flour as a substitute). Then the oil and water are bringing the necessary moisture to the gluten free dough, resulting in a perfect balance that make these vegan gluten free sourdough crackers easy to roll out.

  1. To form the dough you simply combine all dry ingredients (the flours, psyllium husk, ground flax seeds, salt, maple crystals) then add: the gluten free sourdough starter, oil and water. Mix well.
  2. Then add the baking soda + lemon juice, it will enhance the dough with air pockets and bring flakiness. If you skip this step the crackers will have a more sturdy, hardened texture. 
  3. Place the ball of dough between two pieces of parchment and using a rolling pin, roll until very thin, about 1/8 inch thick.

These were great crisp and tasty. I had to use chickpea flour instead of tigernut. Timings spot on. A new favourite ?

Hi. Recipe looks great. Can O use Sorghum flour instead of all the other flours used in this.

HealthyTasteOfLife

Monday 24th of February 2020

Sorghum flour is a whole grain flour, for most recipes it cannot be used solely as a direct replacement for wheat flour. Whole grain flours are lacking in the necessary stickiness to keep baked goods together, or you will get a dry and crumbly texture. This is the reason you will need to combine three or more flours to achieve structure, lightness and good flavor especially for pastries.

Can you use yogurt instead of sour dough starter? I’m not sure if anyone tried yogurt but I was just wondering

HealthyTasteOfLife

That's an interesting question, I never tried that. I think it depends what kind of bacterial strains are in there, how many and how strong they are. Plus you will definitely need yeast to make it rise.
