Cheese Crackers

A quick and easy low carb recipe for something different.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 °F (200 °C).
  2. Dice the cheese (like Velveeta) and butter into chunks.
  3. Put the cheese chunks, butter, flaxseed meal and shredded cheddar into a food processor and pulse until the dough is well combined. (Cut the recipe in half if you only have a small food processor.)
  4. Coat a cookie sheet with non-stick cooking spray.
  5. Drop spoonfuls of dough on to the cookie sheet. (These really spread out when baking, don't worry, you can cut them to desired size after baking.)
  6. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until the crackers are just getting brown around the edges.

These are AWESOME! They taste just like Cheez-its! I used Smart Balance instead of butter. Also the next time I make these, which will be soon, I will spread the mixture on a cookie sheet and cut them into the sizes I want. PS- They stick to aluminum foil.

I'm confused, do you use Velveeta? On Step 2 it says dice cheese like Velveeta. The recipe says shredded cheddar. I want to try this, but I am confused.

I didn't like these. They didn't turn out the way I thought they would. they were not crunchy. I spread them on a cookie sheet and maybe that was the problem and I didn't use Velveeta either, so maybe that is why I didn't like the taste. I didn't think that Velveeta would be low in fat so I didn't look.
