Crunchy, salty, Gluten-Free Cheese Crackers from scratch using only five ingredients. Satisfy your salty cracker cravings with these super simple Gluten-Free Cheese Crackers.
I feel lucky that gluten-free foods have made their way onto the shelves at the grocery store. When my girls were first diagnosed Non-Celiac Gluten Intolerant (NCGI) the options were limited.
Just in the past two years I have seen our choices more than double in our local stores.
You can find everything from donuts, and pizza, to pretzel and crackers – all gluten-free.
My girls love gluten-free cheese crackers, but buying them at the store can lead to high grocery bills and lots of extra preservatives that their growing bodies don’t need.
I decided to make my own gluten-free crackers and they are a big hit.
They are easy to make and last a couple of days in a sealed container. You can easily double or triple the recipe to make some for sharing.
I haven’t tried making cheese crackers with dairy-free cheese yet. Dairy-free cheeses are usually dryer, or they don’t have the same amount of oil that cheddar has.
The oil in the cheddar is a big part of what holds the crackers together, in addition to the gluten-free flour and xanthan gum.
My girls constantly ask me to make these crackers for them. They really do taste a lot like traditional cheese crackers (cheeze-its for example) and they have the same salty crunch.
They only last a few days in an airtight container, but no matter – my girls usually polish them off in two days.
They will snack on them at home and pack them in their lunches with meats and fruits and call it a “lunchable lunch”.
If you make these crackers, please stop by and let me know what you think!
