My children love goldfish crackers. How tempting it is to have that as a staple in our pantry because it is so easy to just grab. Most mother’s probably don’t give a second glance to the ingredients, I know I never did. As my quest to eating simpler and healthier  continues I try and find alternatives to those favorite processed items. This is a super easy and delicious alternative to cheesy snack crackers.

  •  2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  •  1 cup white whole wheat flour
  •  1 teaspoon salt or salt free seasoning
  •  6 tablespoons room temp butter

  3. Hi,

    I had a question about these. You said 6 tablespoons of butter but also say your stick of butter which a stick of butter is 8 tablespoons so I was wondering which was right? My dough came out kinda crumbley and I only used 6 tablespoons so I was wondering if that could the issue or if you had any suggestions? Thank you.

    • hey tosha, I am sorry I used the 6 Tablespoons, What kind of cheese did you use?? Maybe it could be that? Did you knead it a bit after the food processor? Maybe that could be it……let me know

  4. Hi
    Quick question for you. On the salt measurememts for the crackers. Is it a half tablespoon or one or two tablespoons?

    • stephanie i am so thankful that you brought this to my attention, I just went and updated this page it is 1 teaspoon of salt. Hope you are able to make them. Delicious. amy

      • Lol no problem Amy. I had already tried one batch they were pretty salty! I will do them again with the right amount this time. Thanks for replying so quickly. I appreciate your blog.

        • not a problem, I am sorry that you already made a batch:( I will be better to check for mistakes on amounts.

  5. Can you use a mixer instead of a food processor?

    • Hello, you probably can, you just have to make sure that your butter is softer and to knead it very well. Let me know how it goes!
