These Gluten-Free Vegan Flourless Pumpkin Spice Crackers with Sea Salt take less than 15 mintues to make and will disappear faster than it takes to make them!
Well, I decided to give you a break from the sweet pumpkin dessert recipes I’ve been sharing and give you a savory snack instead.
These super easy crackers have the flavor of pumpkin spice, but also just the right touch of salty flavor from the French Grey Sea Salt I used. I love it because it’s thick and more of a flaky-type salt and it’s so flavorful. I don’t use it in everyday cooking but only as a topping, like in this Chocolate Covered Watermelon Slices with Sea Salt recipe, so a jar will last a long time.
Made with just a handful of ingredients you probably already have on hand, these healthy crackers are vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free, flourless, grain-free, lectin-free, alkaline and paleo-friendly.

Gluten-Free Vegan Flourless Pumpkin Spice Crackers with Sea Salt
Yield 30 - 35 small crackers
Vegan / Gluten-Free / Dairy-Free / Egg-Free / Flourless / Grain-Free / Lectin-Free / Alkaline / Paleo-Friendly
For the crackers:
- 2 cups almond flour
- 1 tablespoon 100% pure avocado oil
- 1 flax egg (3 tablespoons filtered water + 1 tablespoon organic ground flax)
- 2 teaspoons organic pumpkin spice
- 1/2 teaspoon Himalayan pink salt
- 1/4 teaspoon organic ground black pepper
- 1/8 teaspoon organic ground garlic powder
For the topping:
- French Grey Sea Salt (or your favorite brand)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Prepare the flax egg:
- Add the ingredients for the flax egg (purified/filtered water + ground flax) to a small bowl and whisk until it is well combined. Set aside.
Prepare the crackers:
- Add all ingredients for the crackers to a medium sized bowl and stir together until it is mixed together well.
- Re-whisk the flax egg then add it to the bowl with the cracker ingredients and stir until everything is well combined. Use a fork to mash the flax egg and avocado oil into the almond flour to make sure the almond flour is moist. The mixture should be crumbly but moist.
- Transfer the mixture to a baking pan lined with parchment paper.
- Using your hands, form the mixture into a compact ball shape, squeezing it together tightly until it holds together well.
- Once you have a ball shape, place a second piece of parchment paper on top of the dough ball and roll it out flat with a rolling pin into a 1/4 inch thickness.
- Use a pizza cutter or knife to cut the dough into small 1 1/2 x 1 1/2 inch squares. Don't cut them any bigger because they will not hold together well. Remove the scraps and any crumbs from the bottom piece of the parchment paper before baking.
- Sprinkle sea salt over the top of the crackers and gently tap the salt into the dough so it doesn't fall off when you flip them over later.
- Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 12-14 minutes, or until the edges and tops are slightly golden. Flip the crackers over and bake for an additional 1-2 minutes, taking care not to burn them.
- Store in an air-tight container.
