BBQ Brown Rice Raw Crackers

I have gotten numerous emails requesting the raw food recipe for the crackers pictured in the cheese post on January 6th. They were a new experiment that I tried that turned out better than I could have hoped for. I used organic, long grain brown rice for the flour, chia seeds for the binder and flavored them with a wonderful BBQ spice mix. These raw crackers have a wonderful, crisp texture that reminds me of brown rice crackers I have bought in the store. They are also gluten free! Another great addition to your raw food recipe collection!



I am lucky enough to have a flour mill from Sunrise Flour Mills to grind the brown rice in. You can buy stone ground brown rice flour at your coop. If it is stone ground, it shouldn’t have been interfered with. I love my mill and will be trying many other grains to see what fun combinations I can come up with.

    Thanks for your quick response Susan. Would you be able to recommend me to one of your smaller organic rice growers to purchase by mail?

    Susan this is a great recipe for crackers but I am confused about the rice. First of all isn’t the dry rice exposed to a heating process so it’s not really raw before you grind it? Also during the grinding process isn’t heat generated so that again it would no longer be considered raw? Thanks for your help. DL

      In some countries, brown rice is usually harvested, left in the field to dry and then threshed to remove the grain. In the US commercial grains can be dried in high heat. I get organic rice from smaller growers. The rice does heat a bit while being ground but has never gone over the 116 degree temp.. If you want to know if your rice still is active, try sprouting it. If it sprouts, all of the nutritional qualities haven’t been destroyed, I get organic brown rice, and make my own flour.

    I did soak the almonds and they were wet. I’ll try to add water next time. They still tasted great they just fell apart.

    I tried making these, they are in the dehydrator right know (for about 5hrs) and they are dried out and crumbling…what did I do wrong? They didn’t seem to be wet enough from the beginning.

      Did you soak your almonds and were they still wet? There are always variables. So, if it seemed too dry, you could always add a little water.

      You need to pack these into the tray. But if it seemed to dry, you could have also added in a little water.

    I have a Vitamix and recently purchased a dry container to process my grains into flour. It works great for those who don’t have a mill.
