Cinnamon Peach Coconut Crackers

Cinnamon Peach Coconut crackers that are raw and nut-free closeup with peaches

 raw / vegan / gluten-free / nut-free

These crackers are super crunchy, light in texture, and bursting with peachy flavor.  But wait there’s more, it is a cracker that has layers of flavor in each bite.  The flavors are not muddled together, nope, you will detect the individual hints of peach, coconut, and banana.

Flavor Layering…

There is an actual term in the culinary world that refers to, unsurprisingly, flavor layering. It’s all about combining, expanding, and deepening flavors in a recipe.  It’s typically done through the layering of spices, vegetables, cooking liquids, and through different techniques of cooking.

You can even achieve this by using just one single ingredient. For instance… Take tomatoes. Imagine starting a sauce with top-quality, BPA-free, canned tomatoes, layering in some tomatoes that have been oven-roasted until caramelized, then finishing it with some super-ripe fresh heirloom tomatoes.  I know my recipes are mainly raw, I am just using this as an example…

You have the acidity of ripe tomatoes, a mild but slightly tart taste of good quality tomatoes, and that roasty-toasty, deep, rich tomato flavor that hits the middle of your mouth. A single ingredient prepared in three different ways, creating a layering of flavors.

I surely didn’t intend to get off on all that… what do tomatoes have to do with this recipe? Not a darn-tootin’ thing.  I was just reminiscing about building layers of flavors in recipes and I managed to accomplish that in these crackers.  Sometimes it is fun to create a recipe where all the ingredients meld together, leaving a person wondering just what the heck it was that they were tasting… and other times, it is preferable to be able to detect all the different ingredients used.  I hope you enjoy these simple yet delicious crackers.

Yields 1 (12×12) dehydrator tray = 64 crackers



  1. Blend the bananas, sweetener (if used), salt, and cinnamon in a food processor, fitted with the “S” blade, until creamy.
    • The sweetener may not be required, depending on the ripeness of the fruit.
  2. Add shredded coconut and process till mixed.
  3. Add the peaches, pulse to blend them in, leaving small bits in the batter.
  4. Line the dehydrator tray with a non-stick teflex sheet.
  5. Spread the batter from edge to edge.
    • Make sure that you spread it evenly so it dries evenly.
    • Wipe the edges clean.
    • Score the crackers into desired shapes and sizes.  You can use a pizza cutter or a long metal ruler to create the score marks.
  6. Dehydrate at 145 degrees (F) for 1 hour, then reduce to 115 degrees (F) and continue drying for 10+ hours… until dry and crispy.
  7. Snap apart and let cool before storing in an airtight bag/container.
  8. They should last several weeks in the pantry and can be frozen for 3-4 months.  If they start to soften due to humidity, throw them back in the dehydrator to crisp up.

    Hi Amie Sue,
    We LOVE your buttery crackers👍🏻 and I want to try these peachy ones, but need a substitute for the bananas, please to make them as good as possible😉Made the homemade yogurt & it’s great. We’re having it on my homemade granola as I write this.
    Appreciative for all you do for so many,

      Good afternoon Penelope,

      It sounds like you have been busy in the kitchen. I love it. :) Regarding the banana in the recipe, just omit it. The texture will be a little different but they will still be thick, sturdy crackers. Keep me posted how it all goes. Many blessings, amie sue

      The link didn’t transfer here but please go up to that and click on it. I haven’t made these in the oven before but if you do, please let me know how it goes. Many blessings and enjoy the recipe. amie sue

    Love the idea of these crackers!!! Can you use frozen peaches? Our organic peaches are expensive and rarely ripe!! Thanks!!

    • amie-sue says:

      I don’t see why not Lori. I would thaw them and drain the excess juice from them so the cracker batter doesn’t get too watery. Keep me posted if you give the recipe a try. Blessings, amie sue

    Thank you for another delightful nut-free recipe! :) Would you mind clarifying the weight of the shredded coconut? I’d like to be sure I’m replicating your recipe exactly. Thanks again!

    • amie-sue says:

      Hello Pam, I had to go weigh it out. :) It is now listed in the ingredient list. I hope you enjoy the recipe. Please be sure to let me know. Many blessings, amie sue

    Thanks Amie-Sue for this recipe. After reading the recipe this morning, I was out shopping for the ingredients. Made a double batch because I just know they will disappear fast! My new 16 cup processor handled the double batch perfectly. Now I’m counting down the hours to the first bite. Oh, the aroma in my house is wonderful😍 Thanks again!

    • amie-sue says:

      You are so welcome Deb… you will be able to make some good food with that food processor! hehe What brand did you get if you don’t mind me asking. Please be sure to come back and let me know how they turned out. Blessings amie sue :)

    Hi Amie-Sue,
    This morning my crackers weren’t completely done before I went to work. I did remove them from the sheets and transferred them to the mesh to make sure the bottoms dried out. So ALL DAY my thoughts keep going back to those crackers. LOL. Glad to report, I’m finally home and my crackers taste so good! I did not add any salt or cinnamon to the tops of them. They are perfect without them. My processor is the Breville BFP800XL. Funny, I thought I could have save some money by purchasing the smaller one. However, yesterday I was glad I bought the 16 cup! The adjustable slicer is just amazing on this processor too.

    • amie-sue says:

      Don’t you love it Deb, when healthy foods haunt you (in a good way that is hehe) So happy to hear that you enjoyed the recipe. I have the same sous chef food processor. Love it. Over the years I kept upgrading to larger and more powerful units… and yes, it is worth it. :) Thanks so much for sharing. Have a blessed day, amie sue

    Hi Amie Sue,
    These look absolutely delishioso. I was wondering if you use fresh coconut (from the brown shell, not young) or the dried kind in your recipe. Also, I would imagine that other fruits would work equally well in this recipe if they are juicy enough?
    Thanks for your input. Can’t wait to try these out!

    • amie-sue says:

      Good morning Neena,

      I used dried shredded coconut for the recipe. I would stick with that. And yes other fruits work. You can look at the related recipes at the bottom of the recipe and see the different ones already on my site. I have quite a few already on here and more to release. :) Keep me posted on how they turn out. amie sue
