Gluten Free & Dairy Free Cheese Crackers
I have always adored cheese and crackers and needless to say I needed to come up with a replacement for it! All kinds of crackers were my friend, depending on the cheese it was partnering with, however, one of my favorite snacking crackers were Cheez-its! Oh yeah baby, I could eat me some Cheez-its and even wrote a separate blog about them when I first started this clean eating journey:) Now I am not gonna lie, this “Cheese Cracker” recipe is no Cheez-it, but man is it good! Paired with pickles it is like eating cheese and crackers I swear because I always ate pickles with my cheese and crackers. I think my love for them came from party food, I have always been a grazer, not a heavy eater so snack foods always have had my heart….probably always will. These Cheese Crackers whip up in minutes and will have your friends asking for the recipe!
1/2 cup Raw Walnuts
1/4 cup Raw Pecans
1/4 cup Raw Sunflower Seeds
5 Tbls Nutritional Yeast
1 Tbls Coconut Oil
1 Egg ( could sub flax seed and water to make vegan)
1/4/ tsp salt
1/4 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp garlic powder
Heat oven to 350
Add the nuts, yeast, and seasonings to a blender cup and run until all ground up. Don’t go too long or the oils in the nuts will start to turn to butter. Place in a bowl and add the oil and beaten egg, mix well.
Next place the dough on a piece of parchment paper, fold the paper in half. Thin making creases along all 4 edges, this will give you all straight edges for your Cheese Crackers:)
Once you get your crackers all rolled out and cut, transfer to a baking sheet and bake for 15-20 mins. Remove from oven, cool and break apart. Note, they crisp up as they cool!
Serve with sliced pickles and fruit, your new favorite snack!
Next just roll the dough out evenly making sure to make a nice rectangle like so

Remove from oven, let cool and break apart
Enjoy with sliced pickles and berries for the best snack ever:)
