Cheesy Golden Crackers, healthy, low sugar, plant-based

Love a good cheesy cracker? Try these easy peasy Cheesy Golden Crackers! I made these trying to create a classic childhood shapes cracker, and they’re pretty darn close. Supercharged with one of our favourite superfoods du jour – turmeric.

5 reasons you’ll love these crackers

  1. 20 minutes. Is all you need. To blitz, mix, and bake ’em to crispy perfection.
  2. They’re made with super simple pantry staples, which I hope you’ll have ready to go right now.
  3. No crumbly bits! These little bites will hold their own, even with the sturdiest of toppings.
  4. If you’ve got kids, you’ll know that crackers are pretty much right up there on any small human’s top-5-foods-to-take-to-a-deserted-island list (amongst ice cream and blueberries). Finally to give them a version you’re 100% happy with from a nutrition perspective too!
  5. Zero packaging. If you’ve ever picked up a box of crackers from the store and gulped down your desires to approach any semblance of a zero-waste lifestyle, these are one way to eliminate a whole bunch of future plastic baggies.

These are so easy and delicious, you have to try them. One thing’s for sure though, they’ll go quick. So I highly advise doing a double batch.

Ingredients

Dry

  • 1 c wholegrain flour (e.g. spelt/wheat)
  • 2 tbsp ground flax seeds
  • 2 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • ¼ tsp turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp vege stock powder (optional)
  • ¼ tsp ground black pepper (optional)

Wet

  • 5 tbsp coconut oil firm
  • 3 tbsp chilled water

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 180°C (350°F).
  • Blitz dry ingredients in food processor until combined. Add wet ingredients and pulse until crumbly. The mixture should form a dough when pressed together. If not add water as needed.
  • Split mixture in half and roll onto a floured surface until 1/4cm thick. Cut into rectangles and place on a lightly floured baking tray. Re-roll any offcuts and cut again until you've used up all the dough.
  • Bake for 12 mins until golden then cool. Store in a glass sealed jar for up to 3 weeks. Enjoy on their own or with your favourite dips.

Recipe Notes

  • Make it gluten free: swap the wholegrain flour for ⅓ c buckwheat flour, ⅓ c brown rice flour, and ⅓ c tapioca flour. Or 1 cup of your favourite gluten free blend.
  • You can grind your own flax seeds, or replace with ground chia seeds. Alternatively add 1 tsp of guar gum (these all help the crackers to bind).
  • If you have onion powder or garlic powder, try adding ½ tsp to the mix – even more delicious!
