Copycat Mary’s Gone Crackers!

When you decide to eat a diet of just wholesome foods, it’s hard to find a cracker that fits the criteria.  It was quite disappointing to read labels and find most crackers contained added sugar or highly processed grains.  I also keep wanted to find a healthy cracker that my picky toddlers would eat.  I finally found a good one in Mary’s Gone Crackers.  They are organic, vegan, gluten free and non GMO verified.  I love them and so do my kids, but at $4 a box, they can be quite pricey.  Since we go through them so fast, I thought I would try making a homemade Mary’s Gone Cracker version.  They came out really good!

They are pretty easy to make and you can add in your own ingredients to customize your favorite flavors.  It’s also a great recipe to do with your kids.  Not really a lot of messy ingredients or measuring.  I find when I get my kids involved in the prep work, they are more likely to eat the food.

For starters, I just did a multi-seed cracker.  I really love their herb flavor, so that will be my next batch.  I also threw some chia seeds because they are so good for you.  I try to toss them in everything from baked goods to smoothies and in between.  To help keep costs down, I bought all of the ingredients out of the bulk bins at Whole Foods.  Here is my recipe.

Homemade Mary’s Gone Crackers!



  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • In a food processor, combine the quinoa and rice into a mushy consistency.
  • Add in all the seeds and salt with a bit of water and pulse until you have a mushy ball.
  • Get out a sheet of parchment paper about the size of a baking sheet and lay it on the counter.
  • Take half of the mixture and place it on the parchment.
  • Using a rolling pin and some plastic wrap, roll out the mixture, putting the plastic wrap between the rolling pin and the mixture. That way, you can roll it out without it getting stuck.
  • Roll as thin as possible and then transfer the parchment and rolled mixture onto a baking sheet.
  • Repeat the same steps with the second half.
  • Bake in the oven for about 15 minutes.
  • Pull them out and carefully flip them and bake for another 12 minutes.
  • When they are done, carefully break them into bite sized pieces and bake for an additional 10 minutes or until the pieces are crispy.

I got about 25 – 30 crackers out of my batch. They should keep for a week or so. Enjoy!

  1. A very easy recipe to work with, and thank you for this idea! I didn’t have any brown rice or quinoa, so I just used white rice and added black and white sesame seeds, flax seeds, pepitos, soy nuts, sunflower seeds, a bit of olive oil and soy sauce and made a very tasty bunch of crackers. Parchment paper was the only way to go, you have that spot on. Handling the dough is a mess so don’t even try to work with it with your hands. I’ll be making this again and experimenting with herbs and dried veggies and cheeses. My kitchen smells so good too.

  2. I feel dumb asking this….but do you think this will work if I use flaxseed meal vs just the seeds? I have a whole box of meal that I am looking to use up.

    1. So glad you liked my version. I love this recipe because you can add whatever flavors you like to it. It’s very adaptable.

  3. These are awesome!!! I love Mary’s Gone Crackers, but haven’t been able to find them since I moved from America to the Netherlands. Not only is this very cost effective, these crackers taste awesome! Good work!

  4. I just opened up a box of marys gone crackers and am hooked. I thankfully found your recipe and cant wait to give it a try. Thanks so much for sharing!

  5. I made these today and they’re already half gone! My fiancé loves them! We tried them with peanut butter and a sprinkle of sea salt, peanut and jam, and cheese. I’d like to try them with hummus next!
    Thank you for this recipe!! I’ve been looking for a good snack recipe and I think I’ve found it!

  6. worth a try- I crave something crunchy – besides carrot sticks
    I am allergic to the real cracker because she uses tamari.

  7. I live in Australia and to buy the small box here they are approx A$10 from local supermarket so to find your recipe…. Wow!! Thanks so much and I plan to make some on the weekend. I love these crackers but because they are so expensive don’t buy them that often. Thanks again!!

  8. I am in Nelson, BC Canada and I just paid $6.99 for a box of these the other day! So thank you very much for this recipe, I can’t wait to try it today, despite my deep desire not to turn my oven on until September;)

  9. I am very excited to try this! Melissa, do you think these would keep well if I made a super batch and froze some for convenience?

    1. Hi Travis! Yes I think you could make a big batch. They should keep well. You can always refrigerate or freeze them for longer.

  10. Amazing, very easy to make. They turned out great, in fact I prefer them to the store bought ones. Thank you so much. They will be a staple in my pantry now, I have already pre-cooked and frozen quinoa and brown rice for the next batch.
