How to Make Homemade Goldfish Crackers

As you might imagine, cutting out dozens of tiny goldfish crackers can take a bit of time. If you want to save time and would enjoy a cracker that is more like a gluten-free Cheez-It, simply cut the dough into squares after you roll it out on the parchment paper, and then transfer the parchment paper (dough and all) to the baking sheet.

Grain-Free Goldfish Crackers

If you’re wondering if these are Paleo goldfish crackers, the answer is, I don’t know. It depends on what your definition of Paleo is. It depends on which foods your body can digest. It depends on what you consider a real food. I can tell you for sure though that these are grain-free goldfish crackers and that my boys and I love them!

Use Organic Dairy in Goldfish Crackers Recipe

Be sure to use organic dairy when you make this recipe. We use organic dairy in our house as it is better for the children, the cows, and our environment overall, and we do not wish to support the regular use of antibiotics in animal husbandry.

  1. I have grandchildren who need dairy free, gluten free and sugar free. I’d love a dairy free fishy cracker recipe for them.

  2. Huge fan Elana! I would love a dairy free option as my children can never have goldfish with their buddies. Your recipes are all amazing and have made this journey of raising my sons who are DF/GF so much easier . Thank you!

    • Bridget, you are so welcome! I have to get the dairy-free version of this recipe finalized for you and everyone else :-)

  3. My husband is allergic to nuts could I use another type of flour, I bake alot with coconut
    Flour, could I substitute the flour.

  4. Love these

    Thank you for all them lovely recipes

  5. Hello Elena! (such a pretty name!) I’m a new subscriber. I stumbled upon your website while searching for ‘grain free’ recipes and wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart for your recipes.. I’m 36 with four children and was diagnosed with Hashimotos seven years ago.. I followed the Specific Carbohydrate diet (SCD) for two years and stayed Gluten free but started eating grains (bad idea).. I started getting severe varicose veins and migraine headaches but didn’t want to give up the convenience that a grain diet would give me.. I’ve finally come to my senses and regained some self-control (with a lot of prayer!).. And that’s when I found you I’ve cut out all grains and sugar but I still use honey.. Is that ok? It’s been about 2 weeks and had some mild withdrawal symptoms but it was SO worth it! I’m feeling so much better! THANK YOU SO MUCH❤️

    • Katie, thanks for your comment! I’m so glad that we’re on this grain-free healing path together. We are all biochemical individuals so what works for me may or may not work for you. However, it sounds like you are very adept at listening to your body and very much on the right track! Here’s a link to all of my grain-free recipes for you:


      Big hugs,

  6. I would love to see a dairy free goldfish cracker recipe too. We are dairy free and Gluten free in our house. Goldfish were a favorite before the allergies arrived.

  7. Yes….please do a dairy free recipe…..we were hesitant to try this one because it called for cheese however we are giving it a try tonight but would prefer one without being very at all. Thanks so much!
