We interrupt you from your regularly scheduled peek inside The Bug’s lunchbox. I’ve got an alternative to those Goldfish and Cheez-Its with some {Gluten Free} Cheddar Crackers. But don’t let the “gluten free” scare you off – no crazy flours or funky ingredients. Trust me on this one…

{Gluten Free} Cheddar Crackers are a snack you can feel really good about giving your kids - protein, fiber, omega 3's. And cheese! | cupcakesandkalechips.com #glutenfree #backtoschoolweek #crackers

 
So, cheddar crackers. Your kids love ’em. My kid loves ’em. I honestly don’t buy crackers too often because that’s what they usually have for snack at school, and if I had them at home, he would just be eating them nonstop. But sometimes it’s just easy to grab a handful of crackers to toss in the lunch bag, or hand to your kids when they get off the bus and are screaming for a snack. Well here is a cracker recipe you can feel really good about giving your kids – protein, fiber, omega 3’s. And cheese. Gotta have cheese!
 
And even if you don’t need to be gluten free, maybe one day your kid will have a friend who does. Or you just want to cut down on the amount of wheat in your family’s diet. Or forget all that – these are just yummy and a nice change of pace. Plus they are easy. The Bug helped me make them, and his attention span in the kitchen is about 0.37 seconds.

{Gluten Free} Cheddar Crackers

{Gluten Free} Cheddar Crackers are a snack you can feel really good about giving your kids - protein, fiber, omega 3's. And cheese!

Ingredients

  • 3/4 c milled flax seed
  • 3/4 c almond flour
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/4 t ground mustard
  • 1 t garlic powder
  • 1 t onion powder
  • 1 oz about 1/4 c finely shredded sharp cheddar cheese (I used Cabot 50% Sharp Cheddar)
  • 1 T olive oil
  • 1/2 t baking soda
  • 1/2 t salt
  • 2-3 T cold water

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F
  • Add all of the ingredients to the bowl of your food processor, and pulse until mixed together.
  • Add the water a little at a time, until the mixture can hold together in a ball.
  • Divide into two balls and place each on a silpat or parchment paper.
  • For "Goldfish" (or any other cookie cutter shape): Roll ball of dough about 1/8 inch thick and cut into desired shape using small (about 1-1 1/2 inch) cookie cutters. Gently place each cracker onto a Silpat or parchment lines baking sheet. Prick each cracker with a fork.
  • For "Cheez-Its": Roll ball of dough about 1/8 inch thick, into as close to a rectangle as possible. Using a pizza cutter or knife, cut into about 1 inch squares, but do not separate the crackers. Lift the mats or parchment paper onto two baking sheets. Prick each cracker with a fork.
  • Bake for about 25 minutes, checking after the first 15-20 minutes, or until the crackers are browned. For the "Cheez-Its", if the outer crackers are getting too crunchy, remove from the pan, and return the pan to the oven to finish baking the inner crackers.
  • Let cool, separate the squares (if you made "Cheez-Its"), and store in a sealed container for several weeks.
Enjoy!
