  • 1 cup white rice flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 8 tablespoons water
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 400° F.
  2. Add all ingredients in the order listed, except salt, to a large mixing bowl.
  3. Using clean hands or gloves, mix ingredients and form a ball of dough.
  4. Lay a sheet of parchment paper on a flat surface. Place dough ball in center.
  5. Cover with another sheet of parchment paper and roll dough out as thin as possible using a rolling pin. Remove top parchment paper and set aside for later use.
  6. Transfer bottom parchment paper with flattened dough to a large sheet pan.
  7. Bake 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from oven, lay second piece of parchment paper flat, and carefully flip dough onto parchment paper. Place on sheet pan. Sprinkle with the 1/8 teaspoon of salt and bake another 10 to 12 minutes until lightly toasted and crisp.
  8. Allow to cool completely. Cut or simply break into smaller crackers.

Helpful hints

  • For more uniform crackers, score the dough with a knife into desired shape and size before baking. Cut through and flip after 10 to 12 minutes. Edges may become brown more quickly, check after 9 to 10 minutes.
  • Adjust sesame seeds to 1 tablespoon if desired.
