  1. Check out Shar’s Table Crackers. Those are buttery and light enough to be reminiscent of saltines to me 🙂

  2. I know it may sound crazy, buying a “kosher” cracker when I’m not even Jewish but my favorite cracker, I practically live on is Yehuda Matzo Matzo Squares Gluten-Free 10.5 oz. What I find interesting is, they’re gluten free, but they aren’t certified kosher. You would think in the long run the kosher was more important than gluten free. Of course there are the regular ones with wheat but I can’t have those of course. And to the best of my knowledge, they really are shipped from Israel. It’s the ONLY excuse for the outrageous price they are and which always seems to be rising of course.

  3. Lance has the best gluten free crackers comparable to townhouse and ritz they are the only ones i use now!

  4. All I want to know is, which of these can I use to dip hummus without them falling apart?

  5. Gluten Free is super important. but…..ALSO high fiber! Back to Nature has an Adzuki Bean w/sea salt cracker that is Gluten Free AND also 14% fiber! This cracker is yummy; have been buying for a couple of years. Problem is they are no where to be found on the east coast anymore! Yikes! A couple of places in Texas have them.
    Mary’s Gone Crackers just introduced Super Seed, Lemon Dill. It is Gluten Free and 11% fiber; not as tasty as the Adzuki but is definitely a healthy cracker.
    I’ve not yet taken the time but suspect the crackers on above list are probably zero or 1% – 4% fiber. We need more fiber. I’ll bet the crackers on above list taste good though so thank you!
    As time goes on, probably more attention is going to be paid to fiber content in food. High fiber prevents colon issues (polyps, lesions, the ‘c’ word!). Issues which, as medicine is discovering, are preventable.
    I shall pursue recipes for crackers which are gluten free and high fiber.

    Sorry to babble!

  6. Kris! Love this comment. Thank you! You are so right about fiber. In fact, we have an article about its importance, especially on a GF diet. You can find it here. You’re also right about many of the crackers we recommend not being super high fiber. This is because we rated crackers based on taste. I believe in a balanced diet and that if and when you eat food like crackers, which are not really the place to turn for primary sources of nutrition, you eat the ones that totally satisfy and then turn to recipes made with whole foods for the majority of nutrition. I love your recommendations and will try them because the optimal scenario is a cracker that tastes amazing and is loaded with nutrition. Thank you!

  7. I really like your suggestions. GF stuff being pricey it’s nice to have the reviews of what is good! There is one cracker that I love that didn’t make your list. Absolutely Gluten Free Flatbread, which is a cracker that is long and rectangle. They are so good. They also have an original/plain. They are light and crunchy and do not overpower whatever you top them with. They aren’t the easiest cracker to find, which is sad, but I load up when I visit my sister in Pismo Beach. California Fresh Market carries them!

  8. Thank you so much for this! We’ve generally kept lists to things that one can either find in stores locally or order by mail. but we will see if there’s a way to get our hands on these and see if you can mail-order them!

  9. Thank you for this list. I also have a cracker that did not make your list. It is the Simple Mills Almond Flour Crackers Fine Ground Sea Salt. There are several flavors but i have only had the Fine Ground Sea Salt version. I have ordered them from Amazon and have purchased from Sprouts.

  10. You’re right! Those are yummy and we should add them! Thanks for letting us know!

  11. I agree with the vote for Lance GF crackers. Best of the Best. Closest to Ritz.

  12. The sesame crackers are a costco item, however, were not on the shelf this week! I would like to recommend the recents finds at Costco: Sonoma Creamery Pepper Jack Crisps, Rhythm organic beet chips w/ sea salt, Karen’s Gym Seaweed Bugak Chips! Also the (Down the Eten Path) crisps w/ purple sweet potatoes have a pretty purple color woven into them – w/ an essentially rice cracker texture!

  13. I agree about the Simple Mills crackers; the plain salted ones are yummy, and so are the cheddar crackers.

  14. You left out one of the best brands! Back to Nature Multi-seed…. they are amazing!

  15. One of my favorites is the Breton gluten free with flax! While they only have 1g of fiber, they are so similar to the original Breton crackers in flavor and texture, which is important to me as well. I also like the Glutino crackers, but often find that I have to search at a couple of stores for some of my favorite gf products which can be time consuming.
    Thanks for all your efforts at sharing. I just read your article of Fiber and am trying to incorporate more natural fiber into my daily intake.

  16. I love Glutino Cheddar Cheese crackers. The reason being is I have a squash recipe and it calls for Ritz crackers. Naturally I had to sub the cracker out. So I bought the Glutino cheddar cheese cracker. It made such a difference everyone loved it they didn’t like the Ritz cracker people that are not gluten-free. They said the other cracker had more taste gave the recipe more flavor.

  17. We love those crackers, too! And we’re glad the fiber article helped! It is really important, and fun if you find yummy recipes with good amounts of fiber.
