How to make vegan cheese crackers
We always have at least one kind of cracker in the house, to go with the dips, cheeses, and spreads we snack on. And of course we have favorite store-bought crackers, but some of the best ones are from scratch.
This Vegan Cheese Crackers recipe is a regular snack at our house, and they could not be easier to make:
- Stir the dry ingredients together in a large mixing bowl
- Add lemon juice and oil, and small amounts of water
- Combine into a dough
- Roll, cut, and bake!
Can these crackers be made gluten-free?
I made these gluten-free cheese crackers all the time. I simply subbed gluten-free all-purpose flour in place of the regular, and the crackers came out crispy crunchy, as the original recipe (shared here) does. If you are not gluten-intolerant, you can use traditional all-purpose flour in this recipe.
What is nutritional yeast?
These gluten free cheese crackers get their cheesy taste from nutritional yeast.
Nutritional yeast is often used in vegan recipes to add that cheesy flavor - dips and sauces especially. I love to add a generous sprinkle of nutritional yeast to salads and pastas, which can add additional protein and vitamins like B12. (Look for a fortified nutritional yeast if using to boost your B12 intake.)
What should I serve these vegan cheese crackers with?
These cheese crackers are delicious to snack on by themselves. But, if you want to serve them with something, try a few of these tasty pairings:
- Vegan Spinach Dip
- Melty Vegan Pizza Dip
- Warm Caramelized Onion Dip
- Spicy Kabocha Dip
- Noocho Cheese
- Mango Habanero Guacamole
Peanut butter cheese sandwich crackers
If one of your favorite childhood snacks was that little package of bright orange crackers with peanut butter in them, you are in luck!
You can spread your favorite nut butter between two of these delicious vegan cheese crackers.
How should I store vegan cheese crackers?
After baking these crackers, allow them to cool completely on a wire rack. Once the crackers are completely cooled, they can be stored in a container with a tightly fitting lid. Your crackers should stay good for up to a week at room temperature.

This recipe is one of many greats from Robin Robertson’s latest book, VEGANIZE IT!
Robin went vegan in the 80’s, and back then, if she wanted something meaty or cheesy or creamy, she says “I had to come up with a way to make it myself.” This book is definitely a reflection of that, filled with easy DIY pantry basics as well as tasty and approachable recipes.
The first recipe I made was the Baked Seitan Roast – I cannot ever pass it up, and Robin’s version is quite flavorful and really simple. The Htipiti (Feta Spread) recipe takes me back to a favorite restaurant from years ago. Just yesterday I made the Scratch Cake because, cake. The recipe has sour cream in it, and is delectable.
The recipes I have dog eared to try soon? Haute Dogs. I know, I am looking forward to those. The Seitan Oscar with Béarnaise Sauce is happening next – long ago, something “Oscared” was a favorite brunch item I shared with Dad.
These Vegan Cheese Crackers will definitely be one I look to make often – they really could not be easier, and they are darn tasty. My first time making them, I rolled most of the dough to a perfect thinness. That is my one tip: roll these out thin if you like a crisp, crunchy cracker. (The thicker ones are crunchy also. I prefer the thin crisp cracker.)
