These herbed sourdough crackers are a swell accompaniment to a cheese platter, dipped into hummus, dunked into soup, and are the perfect shovel for hot, cheesy dips. If you have a hungry sourdough starter like I do, it’s just awful to discard the discard, isn’t it? These crackers are a great way to use it up and come together faster than you can run to the store and buy a box. I always use rosemary and thyme in my crackers because that’s what I grow in my garden, but feel free to mix up the herb blend, or even use dried herbs.

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Pour sourdough starter into a bowl. Add the flour blend (or flours), xanthan (if using), sea salt, mixed herbs and olive oil and stir with a wooden spoon until the dough begins to come together. Dump out onto a clean surface and knead until the dough is soft and pliable, like playdough. Divide dough in half and cover one half with plastic.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment and lightly dust with brown rice flour. Roll one ball of dough out until it’s as thin as you can make it, dusting with additional flour so it doesn’t stick to the rolling pin. Brush surface with olive oil and sprinkle lightly with flaky salt. Cut dough into squares using a pizza cutter. You don’t need to separate them because they don’t spread in the oven. Repeat with the other dough ball.
  • Place both baking sheets in the oven and bake for about 20-25 minutes, or until the crackers are bubbly and lightly golden brown, swapping the pans after about 10 minutes. Cool completely. Store in an airtight container for up to one week (if you have any left…you won't).


If the dough seems too crumbly, try adding a bit of water, one tablespoon at a time, until the dough is workable. Alternatively, if the dough seems too wet, add a bit more flour and/or refrigerate it until it’s cold so it’s easier to handle.

    I had issues with the dough being too dry. I used more olive oil, but then I switched to room temperature water. What would have suggested?

    I also didn’t realize that you wanted both pans in the oven at the same time. I will fix that for next time.

    The taste is pretty great though!

    1. Hi Rachel -if the dough seemed too dry, next time I’d use a bit of water as you did. There is a fine line between crumbly and sticky, so try adding water a tablespoon until the dough is workable. If it gets overly sticky and is difficult to work with, you can try refrigerating it until it’s cold. I’ve updated the recipe with these notes as well.

      Thanks so much for your feedback!
