Homemade rice crackers

This recipe makes a great base from which you can add your own herbs and spices. Rice crackers are a great snack for kids who have common allergies and by making them yourself you can be sure they contain no ingredients that will affect your child.

  • 3 cups cooked rice (still warm)
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • Salt to taste



Preheat oven to 180°C.

Place rice into food processor with the oil. Pulse until the rice turns into a sticky dough. Place a sheet of baking paper (that will fit onto your large baking trays) onto a clean, flat surface. Roll a teaspoon of the rice dough into a firm ball and place onto the baking paper.

Continue to make balls until you have filled the sheet of baking paper, allowing plenty of room between each ball. Sprinkle with salt to taste. Place another piece of baking paper over the rice dough balls and then using a rolling pin, roll the balls flat. The rice crackers turn out best when the dough is thin and even, so take time to make sure each ball is rolled flat.

Repeat this process for the second tray of crackers. Place the trays in the oven and bake for 25 minutes or until beginning to turn golden brown. Allow to cool on the tray, then store in an airtight container.
