Vegan Walnut Zucchini Crackers

These crackers have helped sustain me for snacks all throughout this Daniel Fast. They’re really good with hummus, guacamole, nut butter with fruit or essentially any other spread you can think of.

They are based on this recipe, but I have changed it as I don’t like sesame seeds. I also like them as they do not require any eggs or egg replacer and don’t use any grains as flours. You do need to be really careful with how much salt you add as they can get too salty really quickly.

Vegan Walnut Zucchini Crackers

2 c. walnuts, soaked for 2+ hours
2 small – medium sized zucchinis, cut into pieces
1/3 c. flax meal
1/2 c. almond meal
1 1/2 tsp. kosher salt (more or less to taste)

  1. In a food processor, purée the walnuts and zucchini together until no chunks remain.
  2. Add flax meal, almond meal and salt until fully incorporated.
  3. Divide mixture evenly between two parchment paper lined cookie sheets. Using a spatula, spread out the batter thinly. Try your best to get it to an even thickness.
  4. Using a knife or pizza cutter, cut the crackers into rectangles or squares.
  5. Place in a 250F oven for 1 – 2 hours. The time depends on how large your zucchinis were and how thin the crackers are. They are done when the cracker is crisp and it doesn’t fall apart or feel soft when you pick it up. I wasn’t very good at getting the crackers to a perfectly even thickness, so I would remove crackers from the oven as they became done to prevent them from burning.
  6. Separate and let them cool on a wire rack.
  7. Enjoy with your favourite spread!

  1. I’ve never tried to make my own crackers, but it’s definitely on my “Baking To-Do” list! You make these crackers look so yummy.

  3. Thanks for commenting. Love these crackers! I was really glad to find your site. I have been on a specific diet, similar to the Daniel Fast- but raw only and no beans, for about 5 weeks now! Since I can have everything in these crackers I will be making them tonight, might try dehydrating them as well! (haven’t made my own crackers since culinary school and this seems like the perfect recipe to start with :)
