Warning: These cheese crackers are highly addictive. Please try these at your own risk, because no matter how much you make, they have a tendency to disappear.

Yes, I mean it. So, if making for guests or for taking with you while travelling, I suggest that you make when kids are not around.

Healthy Cheese Crackers

Here comes another treat for kids, none other than Cheese Crackers and that too with a healthy twist. Chocolates, cheese, muffins, crackers are some goodies which are liked by all children. You offer them any of these and see the smile on their faces.

For Blogging Marathon, while thinking of foods for kids travel theme, I knew I had to include these. As Ragi Chocolate Muffins was my first choice, something cheesy followed next. But what cheesy? And then I decided for Cheesy crackers.

This recipe of Cheese crackers is totally different and is a result of my own experiment. So please, do share your feedback.

My children are fond of Cheese toast so taking inspiration from that recipe only I gave these crackers a try. Though somewhere I was confident that these would come out good but still until you have it in front of you the apprehensions prevail. So, keeping my fingers crossed, I started my experiment. Everything was going as expected, smooth cheese mix, supple dough, rolling it out thinly, cutting diamond shapes, preheated oven, putting these to bake in the preheated oven, cheese crackers puffing up beautifully in the oven and then…

Then, you know what, as the aroma of cheesy crackers sniffed into my nostrils, there appeared to be a Time machine like you must have seen in many movies, Jumaan Ji to name one. I was transported in the memory lanes of my childhood. The lanes where I used to go with my granny, Late Smt Kuntel Kumari and would buy bags of Cheeselings. Yes, I was, rather even till today, very fond of Cheeselings.

Though to be honest, these are not that bakery style cheeselings, but still, something was same.

The difference is mainly because of the flour, I think. As I have used whole wheat flour and then these are homemade, hand cut and baked. So, you cant expect them to be like the machine cut ones but forget that part, and you have very healthy, very delicious, guilt free cheese crackers.

This recipe of mine is a very simple recipe with very few ingredients. Only 3 ingredients, flour, cheese and milk, that’s it. In addition, you have flavourings, which are completely optional. Besides this, no oil or butter, no leavening agents like baking powder or baking soda is used. As there is no oil, I was sceptical, whether it would be crunchy or not, but all fears faded away slowly. They were perfectly crunchy. A few hours later, my son Siddharth, at the gate only announced that he could smell that something had been baked/cooked.

Since making it so small may be a tedious task especially if making in large quantity thereforeyou can make these slightly big also. The big ones are also equally crunchy.

So, lets see the recipe of these Healthy & Baked Cheese crackers in detail.

Whisk everything nicely.

Add the cheese mix into this flour mix and gather into a dough. Just gather without kneading it. If need be, add little milk. But make a soft dough. Soft, because, semolina will swell and the dough will get stiff.

Cover the dough and leave it covered for 15 to 20 minutes. You can leave it longer also, say for an hour or so.

Divide the dough into 2 or 3 parts.

Healthy Cheese Crackers

Start preheating the oven. Preheat it at 180 degrees for 15 minutes. Do not heat the baking tray. Line the baking tray with a parchment paper.

Keeping the dough between plastic sheets, roll it thinly. Do not make it too thin otherwise they do not puff up.
Trim the edges and make cuts using a knife or pizza cutter.

Keep these strips in the baking tray and start baking. As they do not spread while baking you can keep them close to each other also. These crackers do not spread rather they puff up.
For the initial 10 minutes bake at 180 degrees and thereafter reduce the temperature to 170 degrees.
Also, at this time, flip the crackers. As by now the bottom gets golden brown whereas the top remains white only. So, for better taste and looks, flip it.

Another 2 to 3 minutes and they are ready. Take out and let them cool down on a wire rack. As these are quite small in size, I used a wire mesh instead of wire rack.

Recipe Notes

  1. There is no baking powder/soda, oil, butter etc but these crackers turn out super crunchy.
  2. A very little salt is added as cheese already has salt.
  3. I have used Amul processed cheese.
  4. In case the dough becomes loose add little flour, either wheat flour or semolina.
  5. Roll out the dough as thinly as possible.
  6. Keep the size of crackers uniform as far as possible otherwise, it leads to uneven baking.
  7. Do not heat the baking tray while the preheating the oven.
