Copycat Mary’s Gone Crackers!

Copycat Mary’s Gone Crackers is the recipe today.  When you decide to eat a diet of just wholesome foods, it’s hard to find a cracker that fits this 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.

  1. These are amazing. Ahhhhhh-mazing!!! My go-to (because they were cheap) gf crackers just changed their recipe, to include an ingredient I can't tolerate even in tiny amounts, so I am extremely thankful you shared this recipe! Instead of just sesame seeds, I used 1/4 cup of homemade everything bagel spice - delicious!
  2. can you tell us how much you figured the savings was? i too, have food intolerances, and my picky 6yo can't have gluten, and these are the only GF crackers he will eat. I am looking forward to making these!
    1. I'm not sure the exact number, but it's definitely cheaper to make your own. Especially if you buy the ingredients in bulk.
  3. I really love your recipe! It keeps on giving. We are unable to get Mary's Crackers at Costco anymore, and they are my favorite cracker. Just too expensive! Most 'healthy' crackers are so salty and oily. I tried this, only adding 1/4 cup finely chopped walnuts, 3/4 tsp of salt, and not using any herbs. I also soaked the chia seeds in a little water out of habit. Instead of rolling the batter out, we formed an assembly line. I made tiny balls, (as other websites suggested) maybe 3/4 inch across, and my partner carefully flattened them between two pieces of lightly oiled parchment into thin circles. To minimize sticking, we peeled each cracker from the parchment and laid it lightly on a greased cookie sheet. I baked them at 350 for about 14 minutes, then turned them over and baked around 6 or 7 minutes more. We made 96 crackers the first time, but they were gone within three days. We HAD to make another batch. To save time, I rolled out part of the second batch. These didn't bake up crispy as quickly, re the difference in baking times. My partner also likes the (close to) perfect little circles the ball method makes. These crackers are PHENOMENAL! Lighter, thinner and not as hard as Mary's. Divinely crispy and nutty. A bit labor intensive, but so satisfying to make. THANK YOU SO MUCH! I can't wait to try your other healthy treats.
  4. Could I make the “dough” in a Vitamix? I don’t have a food processor. Looks yummy and fun to make !
