Daniel Fast crackers

sesame seed rice crackers
Spread a little almond butter on these crunchy, whole grain crackers for a perfect mid-afternoon snack. They’re also gluten free, making them a healthy choice for anyone with celiac disease or gluten intolerance.

Sesame Seed Rice Crackers

1 cup cooked wild rice
1 cup brown rice flour
¼ cup flaxseed meal
¼ cup water
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon black sesame seeds
1 teaspoon sesame seeds

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Add wild rice, rice flour, flaxseed meal, water, olive oil, and salt to a food processor bowl. Process about 30 seconds or until mixture forms a ball and sticks together. Transfer to a larger bowl, and stir in both types of sesame seeds.  Use your hands and/or a rolling pin to spread dough out on a lightly-oiled 11 x 17-inch baking sheet (you may need to coat your hands with a little flour). Press dough to edges of sheet. With a knife, score into 1 3/4-inch pieces. Bake 20 minutes. Remove crackers that are done (usually those on the outside edges brown more quickly). Flip remaining crackers, and bake another 8 minutes or until crispy.

Yield: 6 servings (serving size: 9 crackers)

    Hi can I use apple butter on the daniel fast?

  2. I haven’t seen black sesame seeds, what can I use as an alternative? Thanks, I love your recipes, they are to LIVE for! 🙂

    • Hi, Gloria! You can just just regular sesame seeds for the black ones. The black just add nice color to the crackers! I’m glad you’re enjoying the recipes. May God bless you abundantly as you follow after Him!

  3. Would oat flour work instead of rice flour?

  4. Hi can i eat saltines and peanut butter?

  5. Can I eat tellapata.fish on four dáy of my daniel fast?

  6. Hi Kristen,

    I’m making the chili. Are there any other crackers I can eat with it?

    • This cracker recipe is the only one I have on my website. But you might be able to find a store-bought brand that’s acceptable. Just make sure they’re baked and contain whole grains (or brown rice).

  7. Bridget june says:

    when shopping for tortillas and crackers I’m a bit unsure of what is okay. is it okay as long as it is 100% whole wheat or are there specific ingredients that are a no no?

    • Hi! Any crackers or chips must be whole grain and baked. Unless the packaging says these two things, it’s not Daniel Fast friendly. Also, read the ingredients label to make sure the product doesn’t contain sugar or any other restricted foods. My Daniel Fast Food List will guide you. Thanks for your question!
