Easy Low Carb Cheddar Crackers
These simple Cheddar Crackers are a crunchy snack that would be amazing paired with dips or chicken salad. They are super easy too and only need a few ingredients.
In my last recipe post, Chocolate Walnut Cookie Bars, I told you guys I was working on a new series of snacks and desserts for the blog. Have you checked out that recipe yet? If not, you really should they are so easy and super delicious.
I’ve already had a few of you wonderful readers let me know that you have tried them and loved them. That makes me so happy. I love finding new recipes that we can all enjoy!
That’s why I am super excited to share these new Cheddar Crackers here as well. I hope these will also be a hit and something you guys will enjoy as much as we are.
These crackers, like the bars, are an adapted recipe idea I saw in a really old cookbook. I did have to change the ingredients up quite a bit to make them fit into our low carb and gluten-free diet but I was able to make those changes they turned out great.
For these Cheddar Crackers, you will only need 3 main ingredients and a couple of spices of choice to add some great flavor. I use the basic garlic and onion powder in my recipe but some dill or even some red pepper flakes would be nice for some added heat if you like a kick!
To Make these You’ll Need:
1 stick of softened butter
2 cups shredded cheddar
2/3 THM Baking Blend*
Spices to taste
*Or low carb mix of choice
Making these crackers is as simple as creaming the softened butter in a mixing bowl and adding in the rest of the ingredients listed. The dough comes together quickly then it is simply formed, using your hands, into a long cylinder-shaped log.
Once the dough is ready, it needs to be wrapped in some wax paper and placed in the refrigerator to chill for at least 2 hours.
Don’t skimp on the chilling time as it is very important that the dough as a time comes together before you slice it into the cracker shapes. This process also helps the flavors of the crackers develop before the baking process.
The cracker dough will be a little dryer as it sets so I recommend using a very sharp or serrated knife when you begin slicing the crackers.
Don’t worry if the slices break a bit, just press them together on your baking sheet and they will bake up wonderfully and intact.
The crackers are so tasty and as they cool they get nice and crunchy, yet they have a very tender crumb texture so they are not as hard as some crackers you may buy in the store.
If you are lucky enough to have a dehydrator then you could even let the crackers chill on the trays there for a few hours for an even harder crunch.
I think I may give that a try the next time I make a batch of these. If you don’t have a dehydrator then I hope you still give these a try because they are so good and worth a try!
