These homemade rosemary cassava flour crackers are the perfect crunchy snack - paleo, vegan and free from top allergens. This cassava cracker recipe is salty with a subtle rosemary flavor. They're great for packing in lunches, adding to a snack board or eating with your favorite paleo dip.
Crackers are something that I used to eat all the time as a child (hello Cheez-Its, Wheat Thins and Ritz). But, as I got older and more health conscious, I quit purchasing and eating those types of foods.
Having a child, however, changed my outlook once again and we now buy crackers ALL THE TIME!
Thankfully, there are a lot more options available. Many of which are actually healthy. But I've also learned to make my own healthy cracker recipes like these rosemary cassava flour crackers.
Healthy Cassava Cracker Recipe
This cassava cracker recipe has so many great qualities, including a delicious flavor and the perfect crunch. In addition, these crackers are:
- paleo, vegan & free from top allergens
- easy to make
- nut free - made with cassava flour
- tasty - flavored with rosemary and salt
- kid approved - my children love them
The only downside to these homemade vegan crackers is that they take time to make. Yes, it is easier to buy crackers at the store. You don't have to make the dough, roll the dough and bake the crackers.
But, homemade paleo crackers are cost effective and DO taste good!
Saving Money By Making Your Own Crackers
If you're buying paleo friendly, completely grain free and dairy free crackers without preservatives and additives, then you're probably spending a lot on them.
Some of my favorite store bought paleo crackers cost nearly $9.00 a box AND contain fewer servings than conventional brands.
Quite often, I don't want to spend money like that! So, in-between waiting for my favorite brands to go on sale, I opt for making my own crackers.
Homemade, paleo friendly crackers are much cheaper than what you can purchase in-store and online. The only downside is that they aren't as convenient (because you do have to take the time to make them) and they have a much shorter shelf life. But with the right recipe, they taste just as great!
These vegan cassava flour crackers are made with whole foods, all naturally gluten free, dairy free and grain free. Here's what you need:
How to Make Cassava Flour Crackers
The dough for these cassava crackers is made in a food processor, rolled between parchment paper and baked in the oven. Here are the steps:
First, preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
In a food processor, combine sunflower seeds and salt. Blend to a fine flour. Then, add in the remaining dry ingredients: cassava flour, rosemary and salt. Blend well.
Next, add in the wet ingredients: olive oil and water. Blend until the dough starts to clump. If the dough appears too dry, add a bit more water. You can also add more water after rolling the dough, if you find it's not holding together.
Roll the dough into a ball, flatten, then roll between two sheets of parchment paper. The crackers should be about ⅛-inch thick.
Use a knife or pizza cutter to cut the crackers into 1-inch squares. Optional: top with flaked sea salt.
Next, transfer the crackers (on the parchment paper) to a baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.
After 15 minutes of baking, remove the crackers from the oven, flip and cook an additional 5-10 minutes. The baking time will vary slightly depending on cracker size and thickness.
These gluten free rosemary crackers are best eaten within a couple days, but last up to a week in an air-tight sealed container. Make sure to cool them to room temperature prior to storing.
What to Eat with Cassava Crackers
My boys love eating these paleo rosemary crackers with mashed avocado, which makes a great filling, nutritious snack. Some other great dips and spreads include:
- almond milk cream cheese
- cashew cheese spreads
- roasted vegetable dips
- paleo ranch dip
- almond butter

No, you can flavor these crackers with any herbs or spices you'd like.
I recommend the oil for texture purposes - it adds to the crunch. However, you can replace the oil with water if you prefer.
You can use just pumpkin or just sunflower seeds, however the combination of the two gives these crackers a lovely flavor. Also note, the pumpkin seeds make the crackers slightly green in color. I like adding them for their nutritional benefits.

*If the dough isn't rolling out easily (cracking and breaking) add a little more water (about 1 tablespoon), and knead the dough a few more times.
