Make Your Own 4 Ingredient Cheddar Cheese Crackers
Do you find yourself wondering what to give your children for snacks? If you are looking for natural “good-for-kids” snacks, then this recipe is for you. Instead of buying cheese crackers at the supermarket full of preservatives, artificial colors and flavors; choose to make your own 4 ingredient cheddar cheese crackers.
Remember that snacks are not “treats”, snacks are “mini meals”. So keep your snacks as healthy as possible! Kids deserve real food and homemade is always the best choice for your family. Less sodium, no preservatives, no artificial ingredients, this recipe is a must try!
What about store-bought cheese crackers
Most commercial crackers are very high in sodium and contain no fiber. You will also be surprised to know that the majority of 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.
Try this recipe and find out that your homemade crackers taste way better than store-bought versions. And really there is nothing better than the texture, the smell coming out of the oven, and overall happiness that you feel when you make them. You will be so proud of yourself!
Choose to make your own 4 ingredient cheddar crackers with 100% whole grains and it will be a healthier choice too. Using fresh and quality ingredients is really important. If you prefer a gluten free option, please see my 2 ingredient Parmesan cheese crackers recipe and video where I show how easy it is to make these little yummy crackers. Parmesan, cheddar and gouda are in my opinion the best kind of cheeses for these types of crackers.
For this recipe I like to use and recommend Bob’s Red Mill, Organic, Whole Wheat Flour.

Make your own crackers in 30 minutes or less, and say goodbye to store-bought snacks. Easy, quick healthy snack recipe. Only 4 ingredients!
- 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.
You can store in a cookie jar or closed container for 4-5 days. Anyway if you make them I can assure you they won’t last that long!
