Allergy-Friendly Chocolate Crackers (Dairy, Egg, Soy, & Nut Free)


Many of you have tried my Dairy-Free Goldfish Crackers.  It’s my most popular post of all time.  If you haven’t made them yet, don’t be overwhelmed and give them a go!  Crackers are a lot like cut-out cookies, so don’t let it scare you off.

I’ve been wanting to do a chocolate version for a long time, so with Valentine’s Day approaching, the timing couldn’t be better.

These little crackers can be any shape you want, and I think they’re adorable as little hearts.  These are perfect for showing your child with food allergies that you love them-and not just on Valentine’s Day!  These crackers aren’t super crunchy, but they’re delicious and will be a great addition to a lunchbox or snack bag.

Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
  • 2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 8 T cocoa
  • ½ cup chilled dairy-free margarine (I use Earth Balance dairy & soy free)
  • ¾ cup very cold water (I chill my water with ice, but don't put ice in the mixture)
  1. In a blender or food processor, put the flour, salt, sugar, and cocoa. Pulse until well combined.
  2. Add dairy-free margarine in small chunks. Pulse until mixture is a well combined.
  3. Add ice water 2 tablespoons at a time, pulsing each time until mixture pulls away from sides of bowl and is blended well. The dough will form a ball easily.

  6. Preheat oven to 350F.
  7. Roll out dough to ¼ inch on a well-floured surface. Use small cookie cutter to cut dough.

  1. Hi, I am wondering if you have ever made these with gf flour?! I would love to make these but figured I would ask first before potentially wasting time and resource if it is a fail. 🙂

    • Janelle, I haven’t tried these with gf flour. Sorry I can’t be more helpful, but I rarely use gf flour so I don’t have any tips for you.
