Most commercial crackers are very high in sodium and contain no fiber. Most processed cheese crackers are not made with real cheese either. The flour they use is refined and the flavors are artificial. If you buy whole grain versions you will also notice they are not made with 100% whole wheat flour. But you can change that by making your own crackers at home using real ingredients.
You can choose to make your own 4 ingredient cheddar crackers with 100% whole grains and it will be a healthier choice! Using fresh and quality ingredients is really important.

Make Your Own 4 Ingredient Cheddar Cheese Crackers
Yield 8-10 servings
Make your own crackers in 30 minutes or less, and say goodbye to store-bought snacks.
- 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 1/2 teaspoon of salt. That is all you need for plain cheddar cheese crackers. If you want more seasoning then add 1 tablespoon Spike Salt-Free Seasoning (any salt free/herb seasoning will work, or use your own herbs -fresh or dried)
- 6 tablespoons softened unsalted butter
- Preheat oven to 400 F.
- Place the first 3 ingredients in a Food Processor and pulse several times to combine.
- Then add the butter and pulse until a ball forms. Take the dough out of the food processor and form a big ball with your hands to incorporate well. The dough generally comes out fine, but you may need to add a little bit of water (just a few drops) if your dough is not well formed.
- Roll out dough on a floured surface or on top of Parchment Paper. You don't want it too thin because the crackers could break easily. Cut in fun shapes with your favorite cookie cutters or if you don't have any, just cut in little squares with a knife.
- Bake for about 13-15 minutes until golden brown. I bake the crackers on top of parchment paper, greasing it with a little bit of butter to prevent sticking.
- Enjoy your crackers while they last.
