Easy Cheezy Snack Crackers

BY : PUBLISHED : January 18th, 2017 UPDATED: November 17th, 2021

Man, I love crackers…especially those of the cheesy variety. Making your own crackers is easy, cheap, and healthier than nearly any processed cracker you’d find in a store. Because the dough is made of almond meal which is just finely processed almonds, it is gluten-free and features good protein and fats.

Crackers are one of those things you can make 100 times and 100 different ways. Depending on how chewy or crispy you want them will depend on how thin you roll them out and how long you bake them. However you prefer, this recipe is sure to make you crack(er) a cheesy grin. Enjoy!

  • Combine wet and dry to form cracker dough. Once dough is formed, roll out on a wax paper covered pan. The dough should be about 1/8th of an inch thick or less **I lay a second piece of wax paper on top of the dough as I am rolling to prevent sticking.
  • Slice into square cracker shapes, sprinkle with a dash of sea salt and pop in the oven for 15-20min. checking every few minutes to ensure they aren't burning.
  • Remove, cool and enjoy!
