Cheesy snacks are a classic, a terribly addictive classic. This is precisely why I try to avoid them. Sometimes my craving gets the best of me and I can’t resist. Rather than buying store-bought junk food, I opted to make my own! I devoured them within 24 hours.

Ingredients:
1 cup white whole wheat flour
11/2 cup sharp cheddar cheese (reduce to 1 cup if you use extra sharp cheddar)
2 tbsp coconut oil
3 tbsp ice-cold water

Directions:

  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, combine the flour, cheese and coconut oil.
  2. With the mixer on low, add the water one tablespoon at a time.
  3. Turn the speed up to medium and mix for 3-4 minutes. While the dough is still in the bowl, use your hands to form a ball.
  4. Transfer the dough to the countertop and shape it into a square. Roll the square out to about 1/8 inch thick.
  5. Cut the dough into squares and place the squares onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  6. Bake for 15-17 minutes until the edges are a light golden brown. Allow the squares to cool on a baking rack.

As always, enjoy!

      It really depends on how big or small you make the crackers. I’m guessing it made about 40 but I can’t really say because I started eating them as they came out of the oven!
