Best Gluten-Free Crackers: 6 Best Gluten-Free Crackers You Can Buy

The best gluten-free crackers are crunchy, crispy, and pack a ton of flavor. We want salt, herbs, onion, garlic, and occasionally deliciously fatty oil to grace our gluten-free crackers. And the best gluten-free crackers pack a wallop of a crunch. The lack of gluten actually helps crackers to achieve this wonderful texture, so we want the crunchiest of the crunchy only

I consistently have a wonderful time munching on gluten-free snacks here at Sporked. They  always add something new to the experience. For gluten-free crackers, the lack of gluten always adds a decisive crunch factor that I just adore. And, because these snacks are usually made from seeds and nuts, they also pack wonderful additional flavor. But, what were the best gluten-free crackers we tried? Read to find out.

Best of the Best

Crunchmaster Multi-Seed Roasted Garlic

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: I wish my nickname was the Crunchmaster. Seeing this brand makes me laugh out loud every single time, which is as high as a compliment as I can pay a product. Also, crazily, Crunchmaster delivers on its promise. Their products are always crunchy as hell (we ranked the multi-grain variety number two in our best cracker taste test). These roasted garlic, multi-seed, gluten-free, multi-hyphenate crackers are absolutely delicious. They’re the perfect combination of salty, nutty, and pungent. I will forever be purchasing Crunchmaster products from the store because they understand flavor and texture in a way that other brands often do not. Reliable and uniquely delicious, Crunchmaster roasted garlic crackers are the best gluten-free cracker and score a perfect 10.

Best for Dipping

Snack Factory Gluten-Free Pretzel Crisps

While Crunchmaster is certainly the best gluten-free cracker, don’t sleep on these Snack Factory pretzel crisps, either. I took these home with me and munched on the entire bag in a single day. These taste just like the regular, non gluten-free Snack Factory pretzel crisps (a top performer in our best pretzels taste test) but are much, much crunchier. Gluten-free products tend to be much more so than their gluten-filled counterparts. These pretzel crisps are made with corn starch, potato starch, and rice flour (three ingredients that are known to provide maximum crunch). The flavor is on point, too. They’re toasty, salty, and delicious. Because they’re so sturdy and salty, Snack Factory gluten-free pretzel crisps are ideal for dipping.

Best Nut

Blue Diamond Pecan Nut Thins

I wasn’t a huge fan of these up front, but they grew on me. It should also be said that staff writer Jordan Myrick and managing editor Gwynedd Stuart went absolutely bonkers for them. The taste is incredibly buttery and nutty due to their pronounced pecan flavor. It’s also very salty. Personally, my brain registers pecans as something that’s more of a dessert flavor, an ingredient that should be paired with sugar and cream. Still, these pecan nut thins have such a uniquely bold flavor. Everybody else around the office keeps eating them plain, but I would crumble these on some ice cream in a hurry.

Best Ingredients

HU Grain Free Sea Salt Crackers

The ingredients used in these crackers are choice, my friends: Shallots, apple cider, rosemary, thyme, chia seed, and flax seed combine to make a deliciously nutty, seedy, seasoned cracker that you won’t be able to put down. Hu rather piously touts that they’re a better product than their competitors. Per the Instacart details, Hu’s copy says, “No refined starches. No greasy fingers. Just say no to crappy crackers.” Maybe it’s just marketing, but I buy into it. These felt healthy and delicious, two qualities I like in my snacks. This is the best gluten-free cracker for those who want natural, honest ingredients in their food.

Best Corn

Good Thins Corn & Sea Salt

Good Thins corn crackers are super crunchy and have a pronounced corn flavor. Really, the only two flavors here are corn and salt, but I love how simple yet delicious they are. They taste almost like a gluten-free Frito, but in crispy cracker form. Good Thins, while a healthy front-facing product, do contain a bit of oil and fat, so it’s not 100% good for you. It reads quite junk food-adjacent to me. Still, they’re delicious. The best gluten-free product for people who like corn chips are Good Thins.

Best Protein Punch

Wilde Sea Salt and Vinegar Chicken Chips

Nobody else likes these but guess what, baby? I do. These are chicken-flavored salt and vinegar chips that pack a lot of protein (20 grams per bag!). The flavor is salty, tangy, and savory. What’s not to like? If you’re trying to pack more protein in your diet, but still want to be munching on crackers and chips, Wilde’s sea salt and vinegar chicken chips are the best gluten-free chip for you. They’re made from actual chicken breast (like Rhett told me once, you can dehydrate anything), and they taste like it!

  • I HIGHLY recommend the cheddar cheese almond nut thins, I buy those on the reg. They have such an insanely nice texture, the flavor is amazing, they are straight up addicting. Everyone I’ve introduced them to has become as addicted to them as I am!

  • Don’t sleep on Schar’s crackers, they’ve been a game changer for my celiac! Also, tragically the Nut Thins (and some of the Good Thins) have milk in them which means I can’t have them. 😭 still—I really appreciate the gf representation!
